Form follows function with a good travel bag, which is why the basic design of backpacks, briefcases, and duffels has changed little over the years. But what we expect to be carrying with us has changed a lot. Our exciting new line of casual bags from Hex pushes the boundaries of what a travel bag can do for you. Hex has redesigned the traditional forms of backpacks, briefs, and more for 21st-century realities: more electronic devices, better flexibility, more active lifestyles and enhanced durability. Discover more about Hex below:
All our Hex bags are designed to accommodate laptops, tablets, smartphones, and device accessories in soft faux-fur lined pouches that will cushion your devices against damage and protect them from moisture.
The Sneaker Backpack:
Though it looks much like a conventional backpack at first glance, the Sneaker Backpack from Hex contains many delightful innovations – secret weapons that equip it for modern lifestyles. It’s perfect for students, commuters, joggers, photographers – or all of the above.
The Sneaker backpack is fit for use to transport laptops and school or business supplies in its main compartment, just like its closest competitors. But Hex has actually moved the deeper compartment with its protective-lined laptop sleeve toward the front of the bag. Closer to your back are two separated spacious compartments; one with an ordinary top-access zipper and another concealed underneath the lumbar pad on the back of the bag: both perfect for heavier objects that you’d like to keep closer to your body. This secret compartment is perfect for separating one or two pairs of gym shoes from the rest of the contents, but it’s also a perfect place to stow a DSLR or video camera; this makes the Sneaker Backpack one of our best bags for adventurous photographers. Despite its name, the Sneaker Backpack isn’t just for shoes: you can carry all your personal equipment with you without fear of jumbling it together as with the classic backpack design.
Camouflage zipper pulls accent the solid-color nylon exterior. And thanks to generous back padding and an optional waist belt, the Sneaker Backpack will stay comfortable even when hauling a heavy load.
The Convertible Brief:
At Kaehler, we know the best best bags excel in more than just one situation. Hex has taken the traditional briefcase form factor and turned it into a multi-purpose tool for casual and business use.
True to its name, Hex’s Convertible Laptop Briefcase transform based on your preference and the needs of your commute. The magnetic locking brief handles can be stowed away in discreet sleeves, while straps on the back can be folded out to turn your brief into a small backpack. Vertical mode makes the Supply Convertible laptop Briefcase a perfect companion for bicycle commuters: carry your laptop, iPad, and business papers comfortably on your back; then convert to briefcase mode and enter the workplace in style.
The Echo Backpack
The Echo Backpack serves every function of its backpack peers – but also has a few tricks up its sleeve. Like many of Hex’s bags, the Echo backpack is certified Device Ready; perfect for transporting an up to 15-in laptop in its protective electronics sleeve.
The Echo comes in a classic, attractive dome shape that makes it look compact on the outside despite its spacious main compartment. The outside pocket is perfect for an iPad, tablet, and small accessories, and it’s protected by a rain flap. The Echo Backpack’s nylon exterior has a water-resistant coating for those who like to ride in the rain. Harsh conditions won’t stop you from bringing your electronic devices everywhere!
The Weekender Bag:
The largest Hex bag we currently carry, the Weekender Bag is perfect for anything from casual packing to heavy-duty off-road adventuring. The wide main compartment will accommodate your gear in any situation and climate. Taking a change of clothes and shoes to the gym? Bringing blankets and towels to the seaside? Setting up a mobile office on a sailing ship? Picnicking on the canyon rim? You’ll find the Weekender Bag flexible enough to handle any packing scenario.
The Weekender comes with an optional adjustable shoulder strap, should you wish to sling it over your back rather than carry it at your side. The Weekender comes in an army matte camo-patterned water-resistant canvas with yellow genuine leather zipper pulls.
The Shoe Duffel:
An attractive yet function-oriented duffel bag, the Sneaker Duffel from Hex looks clean on the outside but like all of Hex’s bags it can readily adapt to different situations.
Both side zippers on the Sneaker Duffel open a wide vented pocket perfect for storing gym shoes, so you can take multiple backup pairs wherever you go and be ready for any terrain or activity. A roomy main pocket will store gym clothes & exercise gear. Polyurethane dividers restrict odor travel from the shoes pockets to the clothing compartment. Use it as a gym bag, weekender bag, or for short trips: it’s nice to carry your dirty shoes separately from your clean clothes. The Sneaker Duffel comes with a detachable shoulder strap and genuine leather camo-colored zipper pulls. Luggage-style feet keep the bag up off the pavement.
Front and back pockets are perfect for storing additional accessories; the front pocket is lined to specifically to protect electronics and is large enough to hold an iPad or 13-in laptop. Now that you can carry everything you need, it’s time to hit the gym!
