Christian Hosoi is a name positively synonymous with skateboarding so it stands to reason that this is who HEX went to when coming up with this new capsule of carries. Hosoi, who has been able to travel the world courtesy of his skateboarding talents, obviously needed plenty of bags and accessories during his time globetrotting and this new HEX x Christian Hosoi Backpack and accessories is the culmination of his travel know how and the requirements that he himself had whilst out on the road.

The backpack in the collection ($99.95) is an innovative bag with a large top lid which permits simple access to the oversized main compartment to get hold of whatever you need. It boasts heavy duty skate straps which will securely carry a skateboard with no problems at all. There are also various accessory pockets with waterproof zippers, and a water bottle holder to keep hydrated on the go.
So far as travelling is concerned, it is the HEX x Christian Hosoi Travel Roller that will be the best fit for your requirements. This exemplary carry was designed with a large opening and vast interior space to allow for maximum cargo access. Hosoi travels with his helmet and pads so needed plenty of space in his carry, and others are sure to benefit from this generous compartment and effortless accessibility. It comes with a telescoping handle which is paired with skateboard wheels for smooth rolling through airports. Additional accessory pockets can be found on both the inside and outside, and a re-unforced grab handle finishes off the features nicely.
Rounding off the HEX x Christian Hosoi capsule is a smaller accessory – namely, the Waistpack which retails at $34.95 and is perfectly suited to all your EDC essentials. This first class carry comes in Hosoi’s signature colour way and hearkens back to his days in the 80’s, when he rocked the original incarnations of the fanny pack. This new Waist Pack is padded in order that it can be used for cameras or other tech devices and has a front accessory pocket with waterproof zipper. It’s both classic and progressive at the same time. Win, win.
