Our Technical Backpack is an engineering marvel. You can fit soooo much stuff in here! But it's how the bag is designed that makes the difference. Lets start with the heavy-duty, water-resistant shell featuring genuine Cordura® ballistic nylon. We also incorporated our antimicrobial technology right into the fabric which resists and repels up to 99% of harmful bacteria, mold, and fungus. How awesome is that to help with your travel hygiene!

The magnetic secured laptop compartment allows for one hand removal and stow - no more need for that third hand!  The pocket is lined in plush faux fur, padded with EVA foam and holds up to a 16" laptop. All the inside pockets and organizers are sized specifically to fit hard drives, power packs, etc.

And speaking of power, we have incorporated our wireless charger pocket right onto the top of the bag. This pocket is perfectly sized to fit our HEX wireless power bank (sold separately) and allows for quick, easy on-the-go charging without having to deal with those unsanitary public charging stations. Of course the pocket can also be used with other chargers as well.

We also used the new YKK EYL woven "tough zippers" for maximum durability. Plus these zippers use substantially less water in their dying process so they are good for the environment too - win/win!

The interior divider allows you more space for a tablet while still keeping the roomy main compartment free for all your daily needs. There is a hideaway rainfly, an exterior utility strap, luggage handle pass through for travel on a roller suitcase, a lay-flat water bottle holder, and a combo passport/phone pocket. Add that to the 2 front pockets with nice hidden magnetic closures and a molded EVA foam back panel and you have one serious backpack.

If you want to follow the science, scroll to the end for more information about our antimicrobial technology.

Here's some "scienc-y" info for those of you who just gotta know more about our antimicrobial technology ;)

While the term “antibacterial” may be more well known, antimicrobials take germ protection a step further in that they are also effective against molds, and fungi.

Our antimicrobial technology targets harmful microbes by altering their ability to convert nutrients into energy, inhibiting microbial survival and reproduction. We use a zinc pyrithione process delivered in a liquid dispersion form that incorporates the solution directly within the textile fibers. Our treatment is registered with the EPA and FDA as well as notified with the EU BPR and is BluesIgn® and Okeo-Tex certified.

Our fabrics were laboratory tested* using antimicrobial test methods ATCC 100 & ATCC 30 and compared against a control sample. No product can claim 100% elimination or guarantee effectiveness against all kinds of microorganisms and pathogens. However, these tests showed our fabric to repel and resist up to 99% of bacteria, mold, and fungus. This means that whatever your bag comes in contact with, the bag itself is working to eliminate harmful germs and bacteria. We call this process “active hygienics” and it means that any transmission of microorganisms to or from your bag will be diminished.

We are pleased to bring this technology to market in response to the need for heightened hygiene practices and to provide our customers the best product experience possible.

Regarding COVID-19: Most antimicrobial processes (including ours) have not yet been specifically tested on COVID-19. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) recommend the use of antibacterial and antimicrobial products as part of a generalized preventative routine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Best bags I have ever nought

I have 3 HEX bags all in this same camouflage, the tech, camera and sling. That should say something and I absolutely love them. I bought one for all my camera equipment and fell in love with it so much I started using it for work as well. So then I bought this one and love it especially the laptop sleeve it is soft and big fits my laptop no issues. Good quality stuff, well thought out space. I also have the sling and love that as well. I just wish they had one with a grim reaper on it. Possibly?

Heirloom Backpack - Just wish it were a little bigger

This thing is built like a tank, really. I purchased many backpacks in search of the finest one, 10 different ones at this price point with similar features, I returned them all and kept this one. The cordura ballistic material used is excellent, the zippers are the latest YKK and are so smooth and easy to open, the interior soft fleece material is so nice, the magnetic closures work really well, all of it screams quality and durability. Some other packs came close, but then skimped on features or had too many dangling compression straps, or where just too floppy with no structure. This has a nice clean, formed structure/design that maintains its shape well, with padding built into all the sides (which helps keep the shape). The thermo formed back is excellent to to help keep this pack from sagging down. All the stitching is super strong, one look at how the shoulder straps attach to the body and you'll see the difference vs other packs. This has very thoughtful compartments, pockets, storage solutions, etc. And the Glacier camo is unlike anything else out there, and has all my favorite colors. Two downsides. I'm not sure if its the straps or what, but it tends to want to sit lower on my back, no matter how loose or tight I adjust the straps. It might be because its a bit smaller in size and I'm 6'2" so its small on my frame. The second, I simply wish it were bigger. At 17.5L its not bad, but if this things was scaled up just a bit, to 25L, it would be perfect! Depth is around 4 to 5 in, something closer to 6 to 7 would be nice, or a bit taller from top to bottom. A removable waste strap would be nice too, and make this perfect, but it does have a loop at the bottom, which you use to hold the straps in when carrying it with the side handle like a brief case (which is such a nice feature, the side handle that is), so theoretically you could run a strap or belt through that to tie the pack down better near the bottom and around your waist. I will be a return customer for sure, especially if Hex makes a bigger version of a technical backpack. I almost went with the Cinema, since its bigger, to use as a general backpack (not for camera gear), but Glacier Camo was sold out. Im confident in saying this is the best back pack out there, a true heirloom backpack!

Look No Further

I love this backpack. I have been on the search for a new backpack that holds all my things but doesn't look huge or hurt my back or shoulders. The frame sits well and although I over stuff my backpack it is doesn't dig into my shoulders.

Looks great

Looks great, has a lot of pockets to store things. But the main Compartment seems very cramped. I’m assuming it has to be broken in. I use it as an everyday bag. So I don’t carry books or anything, just my iPad But, no regrets
