HEX, the award-winning fashion accessory brand, has launched its HEX x Halo Capsule, a new line of premium bags designed in collaboration with 343 Industries, as part of its rollout for the upcoming video game, Halo Infinite. The capsule consists of four styles — Spartan Backpack, Spartan Tech Backpack, ONI Sling, and UNSC Duffel. Each bag is developed to facilitate a more immersive experience and allows users to step inside the game.
All the bags are constructed in 16 OZ Canvas with a water-resistant, polyurethane coating for durability and use YKK’s new EYL “Tough Zippers”. Each type of bag is built around a different element from the game:
The Spartan Backpack is a daypack equipped with an organizer, grab handle, hidden zipper pockets and features custom badging.The Tech Backpack is priced at $99.
The Spartan Tech Backpack is the ultimate bag for the serious gamer, photographer, streamer, etc.). This bag features EVA foam padded laptop storage, a luggage handle pass-through, deluxe organizer, passport pocket, and grab handle. Inside there is a full setup of custom configurable EVA foam dividers so you can set up your bag to accommodate your specific gear requirements. The Pro-Tech Backpack is priced at $199.
Both Backpacks are inspired by the legendary super-soldier, the Master Chief, and carry his Spartan-117 ID number, signature green color story and logo/trim package.
The UNSC Duffel features an EVA foam padded laptop compartment, various accessory pockets, a luggage handle pass-through, and hidden magnetic handles. The grey color story and badging all identify it as Halo UNSC (United Nations Space Command) property. The Duffel is priced at $149.
Lastly, The ONI Sling is perhaps the most versatile of the bags and features a molle clip system on the front as well as brushed steel hardware, a padded shoulder pad, and a generous padded main compartment with adjustable padded divider to hold anything from game controllers to cameras. The Sling’s badging and black color story identify it with Halo’s ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence). The Sling is priced at $79.
“We’re excited to partner with 343 Industries on such an iconic game franchise. Our technical functionality was a perfect fit for a performance-oriented game like Halo”, said Trent Valladares, HEX co-founder. “We enjoyed getting to know the characters and environments on a deeper level and believe fans will really enjoy these limited-edition bags.”
“Our goal was to develop a capsule program of premium bags for Halo fans. Through our collaboration with HEX we were able to not only make them sophisticated and on-brand, but also factor in a high level of performance and utility”, said John Friend, Head of Consumer Products. “Inspired by the “essence” of Halo, the bags take their design cues from the visual language of Master Chief, the UNSC and ONI. From color palettes to graphic patterns and material selection, this line was designed for everyday function and appeal so that you can carry your love of Halo wherever you go.”
