January 08, 2012We are so excited to be in Las Vegas at CES 2012 where we are an Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, and more so to announce our all new Fleet Collection—a 12-piece accessory line of messenger bags, backpacks, laptop sleeves and totes to style up gadgets and gizmos, all while providing superior protection. Making its debut at the 2012 International CES, each Fleet bag features chic charcoal and white pinstripe canvas fabrication, custom-printed lining and contrasting tan genuine leather zipper pulls and leatherette trim detailing. The Fleet Sonic Backpack. The Fleet Collection marks our third line of bag “techcessories” and features several new designs—the Tote for 15” MacBook Pro ($79.95) and the Cross-Body for iPad and 11” MacBook Air ($59.95). Each bag pairs today’s most fashionable styles with thoughtful tech-related features such as compartment padding to protect devices from bumps and bangs and pockets sized to snugly fit the most commonly carried devices. The Cross-Body also incorporates HEX’s PadPort (patent pending) to allow easy iPad 1 and 2 access while on the go. MacBook Air 11” and 13” sleeves ($39.95) round out the new silhouettes. Our all new Tote. “CES is the perfect venue to launch our new Fleet Collection and we are excited to share the new bags with the crowds of tech-savvy consumers and industry influencers that gather here,” said Dan Maravilla, vice president of HEX. “The new tote and cross-body designs are a great addition to our existing line of carryalls and we are excited to add the pinstripe pattern to our existing collections of bags.” The Cross-Body for 11" MacBook Air & iPad. Other styles in the Fleet Collection include Laptop Bag ($79.95), 13” Messenger Bag for iPad ($79.95), Sonic Backpack ($99.95), Backpack ($79.95), Source backpack ($59.95) and 15” Messenger Bag for iPad ($79.95). Each bag features surplus grade web carrying handles, pocket organizers and water resistant coating. Unique to the HEX messenger bags in the Fleet Collection is the HEX PadPort which allows users to search, surf, watch, play or post instantly while on-the-go. The inclusion of tech-specific features in the Fleet Collection reflects our ongoing thoughtful accessory design, which earned us a coveted CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree designation for the Varsity Messenger Bag for iPad®. Products entered in this prestigious program were judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories. We are exhibiting at booth #6628 in the LVCC North Hall and encourage all attendees to stop by to learn about our newest line of bags. The Fleet Backpack. The Fleet Messenger.
