Hex recently introduced its Stinson Collection, a new collection of three different bags coming in seven different designs — 21 bags in all. We received the charcoal canvas version of Relay Duffel ($110) and the denim/dot-design Echo Backpack ($80). The former has external pockets for electronics, while the backpack can hold up to a 15” MacBook Pro.
Both Relay Duffel and Echo Backpack are water-resistant, typically spacious bags from Hex. While the company claims the duffel bag will hold an iPad in one of its pockets, it’s a bit of a squeeze — we think it fits an iPad mini better. Another external pocket holds smaller electronics and cables, while the main part of the Relay Duffel is quite roomy, with side snaps to make the bag more compact when need be. Echo Backpack will actually hold a full-sized iPad in its front pocket.
