August 12, 2013Continuing in our tradition of bringing fashion to function, today we are proud to announce that we have teamed up with family member Mike Mo Capaldi to create a signature two-piece product line just in time for this year’s Back to School shopping season. The new Mike Mo Backpack and Mike Mo Core Case for iPhone 5 seamlessly blend the worlds of skateboarding and fashion in a way that allows for sleek style and maximum protection of one’s digital devices while rapidly being on-the-go. “We’re very excited about having the opportunity to work so closely with Mike Mo and develop two products that mirror our combined worlds-skateboarding, technology and fashion. He’s (Mo) been an integral part of our core Ambassador Team for so long now and working with him was quite refreshing,” said Carl Steindler, marketing manager, HEX. “Both the backpack and phone case are a unique take for a product lineup within the skateboard industry and with equal parts fashion, function, and Mike Mo intermingled we are very excited about the release of these signature products.” “My backpack offers everything you need when you’re out and about,” says Mike Mo Capaldi. “It’s the perfect size, my favorite colors and most importantly safely holds all of my beloved Apple products along with my newest pair of Glassy sunglasses. Not to mention, the matching iPhone 5 Core case, which also looks great and is so slim and stylish that I barely notice it in my pocket while skating…I’m very happy with how everything turned out. Thank you HEX!” The HEX x Mike Mo Backpack and Core Case for iPhone 5 are constructed in heavy-duty 16 oz. waxed coated canvas in navy with black accents, red interior lining and surplus grade cotton web strapping. All of the pockets on the backpack feature fleece lining for scratch protection and worry free device storage. Other features include a separate padded laptop compartment, and an exterior sunglass pocket-perfect for Mike Mo’s newest Glassy Sunhaters. The Core Case features a redesigned and reinforced custom molded bed that will keep your iPhone 5 securely in place and offers the same matching 16 oz. wax coated canvas found on the backpack. Joining an already established line of street-ready techcessories, the HEX x Mike Mo Backpack and matching Core Case for iPhone 5 will be available on Tuesday, August 13th, 2013 for $89.95 and $39.95 respectively right here on our website or finer skateboard and street wear retailers nearest you.
