Inside Line Equipment took their standard saddle bag and updated it for mountain bikes and dropper posts. These bags are just big enough to carry a MTB tube, tools, and other necessities. They feature an elastic zip cord that secures the bag as well. Available in black, black multicam, and alpine multicam, these bags are made in California and in stock now at ILE.
My favorite small camera bag just got better. Inside Line Equipment updated the Photo Bag Mini with a new interior fabric, better foam and a simple, one-piece insert design. The new and improved Photo Bag mini is also available in an array of custom material options, along with some stock fabric choices. This bag will fit mirrorless systems easily, as well as a DSLR with a small telephoto zoom lens like the 5D and a 24-70. I’ve used mine thoroughly for almost five years and love it. They retail for $120, are sewn in California with stock available now at Inside Line Equipment.
Everything is better with Multicam! Including these new Inside Line Equipment Seat Bags. Now available in black, white and standard (tandard as I like to call it). Made in the Bay Area and only $30. In stock now at ILE.
ILE’s popular Default backpack is now available in durable, black XPAC sailcloth with a clean Coyote brown trim. All of ILE’s bags are made in the Bay Area using the highest standards of construction. Check out more at ILE.

Somehow I missed this video from Inside Line Equipment, showcasing their Prime photo bag. Everything this company makes is A+. I’ve had their Photo Mini bag for well over two years and it’s one of my favorite photo bags.

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!

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.
