I always love seeing new product from ILE and these Default XPAC backpacks look great!
“XPAC is manufactured by Dimension Polyants, woven and lamented in Putnam Connecticut, USA. They specialize in racing sails for boats, but also make some great fabrics for bags.
The fabric has a waterproof laminate, as well as our RF Welded vinyl liner roll-top to keep your gear dry.
The bottom features a 1000 Denier Cordura nylon for its unparalleled abrasion resistance. We are using exclusively Acetal/Delrin fasteners and adjusters for their extreme durability. Our finely tuned shoulder straps are padded, and distribute the load evenly. And the strap angles are designed to fit a broad range of size people.”
These lightweight bags are $260 at ILE
There’s nothing worse than having to dig through a bag loaded with a weekend’s supply of clothing, camera equipment, electronics and supplies. ILE’s new Load Cells provide an ultra lightweight solution to that problem and with the new Cyan collection, are sure to provide a bit of color into your portage needs. Check out the full Cyan line at Inside Line Equipment and I can’t wait to see the Load Cells in person!
Blue Lug loves American-made cycling packs and recently, they got in a full stock of ILE Transfer Race Bags. Of course you can buy those from Eric at ILE direct here in the States, I just wanted to give Blue Lug some love for their great photos. See the rest here.

Eric at ILE teamed up with Jeremy and Neil at Cedar Cycling on a run of Cedar Green saddle bags. These easy-to-access bags are made in California and come in either ripstop or green waxed canvas for $40. Pick one up at Cedar and don’t forget to check out their other products here.
ILE has been working hard on designing this new Transfer Bag, their race-day bag. It’s specially designed to take your kit, shoes, helmet and anything else you need for the track, cross or crit race. Get the scoop on one at MASH.
It’s been about a month since Eric from ILE sent me one of his new Photo Bag Mini models to test out. Usually, when I’m shooting photos on the go while riding, I’ll just throw the camera around my shoulder and pedal around with it fully exposed. There are plenty of occasions where that might not be a great idea, or maybe you want to carry a flash, some CF cards and other small accessories with you. In those cases, the Photo Bag Mini is perfect.
Or, as I’ve found in recent weeks, it’s great for toting my Hasselblad and a few film backs. Check out more of my thoughts on the ILE Photo Bag Mini below. Click on the above photo to launch the gallery, or here to open in a new tab.
Eric from Inside Line Equipment was commissioned by Munich Evolution in Seattle to make some backpacks in the M-series livery to display in their showroom. Automobiles have influenced bicycle paint design for years and the M-Series isn’t a bad choice. Check out more photos here.
