Travel Pack: Blackout Patchwork


A study in materials, textures, and composition, our Blackout Patchwork collection features tonal renditions of ILE shop favorites.

Blackout Patchwork pieces are made using panels of four hard-wearing, weatherproof fabrics: VX21 XPAC, X50 XPAC, 500D Cordura / 275 Dyneema Ripstop, and 1050D Ballistic Nylon. To maximize functionality the fabrics appear in a gradient from heaviest at the bottom to lightest up top.

Based on our unique Race Day zipper closure, the Travel Pack takes the panel loading organization further, and makes for the perfect carry on. Tactful pocketing offers organization, without dictating how you pack. Durable water resistant YKK zippers with custom CNC 6061 Aluminum pull-toggles allow for side entry. A 50mm AustriAlpin COBRA buckle keeps the pack contained even when overloaded, and side mounted metal G-hooks offer compression when needed.
