MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Backpack, Briefcase, Tote or iPhone Case From Hex

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Hex to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Hex bag or iPhone case. Hex makes a whole range of products, including multiple totes, backpacks, and bags with simple designs and clean lines.

Hex's 10.8L Terra Expandable Laptop Briefcase, for example, has a no-frills, modern design that offers a wealth of storage space. There's a padded laptop slot that can accommodate up to a 15-inch laptop, an interior gear pocket, an external tablet pocket, two external gear pockets, and a rear document pocket, so it can fit pretty much all the gear you might need.


Priced at $139.95, it comes with backpack straps that can be tucked away so when it's packed full you can wear it like a backpack, and there's also a detachable shoulder strap so it can be worn in a more traditional way. The Terra is made from a polyester material treated for water resistance, so it can hold up to a bit of rain.

Hex's Nero Expandable Laptop Briefcase, also priced at $139.95, is pretty much identical to the Terra with all of the same features and pockets, but it is made from a black polyester material that's also resistant to rain and rips.


Hex also makes affordable backpacks, including the Echelon Signal Backpack, which is priced at $89.95. The Echelon backpack holds 17.25L, so it's a good size without being too large, and it can accommodate a 13 to 15-inch laptop in the padded laptop compartment.


It's made from a gray polyester material that's simple, attractive, and water resistant, and there's a big front pocket for a tablet. A pocket at the top keeps sunglasses safe, and inside, there's a big interior pocket and organized sections for pens, keys, and cards.

Hex's 24.9L Supply Laptop Tote, priced at $99.95, is another option for carrying a laptop. It can hold a 13 to 15-inch machine in the padded storage compartment, and for other items, there's a big main zippered compartment and a padded tablet compartment.


At the front, there's a snap pocket that can hold a phone, and two rear snap pockets for change and keys. It's made of a waxed canvas treated for water resistance, and it features coated canvas accents and leather zipper pulls.

To go along with its lineup of bags, Hex has iPhone cases available. There are folio cases and standard cases, like the Stingray Leather Shield Wallet.


The Stingray, priced at $44.95, is made from a textured leather material with a polycarbonate shell that keeps the ‌iPhone‌ safe from bumps and drops. There's a built-in wallet feature with 2 RFID blocking card slots and a raised front bezel that protects your screen.

We have one of each of the above listed products from Hex to give away to MacRumors readers. The first winner picked will receive the Terra briefcase, the second will get the Nero briefcase, the third will get the Echelon backpack, the fourth will get the Supply Laptop Tote, and the fifth will get the Stingray ‌iPhone‌ Case.

For what it's worth, I prefer this single entry versus Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, AIM screen name, favorite color, and "pick a number" that I usually have to put in.

The Twitter permission is intrusive. With the old widget, you just supplied your Twitter handle and it verified it that way.

You can still enter that way, just click on Follow instead of connect Twitter, then it'll ask you to supply a username. The option to connect is to make it one click instead of a click and then a username entry.
