Default: Blackout Patchwork

A study in materials, textures, and composition, our Blackout Patchwork collection features tonal renditions of three ILE shop favorites - Default 25L, Radius Mini, and Minimal Tote.

We’ve laid out a patchwork configuration on each of these styles utilizing four hard-wearing, weatherproof fabrics: VX21 XPAC, X51 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.

The Default is our flagship bag built for all-around utility, featuring a waterproof main roll-top compartment, multifunctional middle sleeve, and handy hidden pockets. This bag is designed with room for groceries, extra clothing, a laptop and more, and offers excellent protection from the rain. The Default is comfortable for everyday use but will also carry larger loads with ease.
