The HEX Wireless Carry-On Sets a New Standard in Premium Luggage

February 20, 2020

HEX Launches Kickstarter to Support the Production of its Premium Carry-On Featuring Patent-Pending Wireless Charging, Hinomoto Lisof® Wheels, Makrolon® Poly Shell

LOS ANGELES – February 20, 2020 – There’s a new player in the luggage category, and HEX is coming out strong, dropping the first Case-Top Wireless Carry-On suitcase on Kickstarter.

HEX exists to move forward through thoughtfully designed products. When the HEX team felt they could bring a better suitcase to market, they moved this idea forward as well. HEX thinks luggage should enhance your travel experience – and be more of a travel partner – magnifying the joy of travel.

The new HEX Wireless Carry-on is designed to do exactly that, not just carry your stuff (although it does that, too). HEX spent months working back and forth with fabricators to develop a new case-top wireless charging system, which now has a patent pending. The charging bay is integrated in a convenient place on the top of the bag, which makes charging your phone on-the-go simple.

Other premium features include a Makrolon® Polycarbonate Shell (Makrolon is the Cadillac of poly), Hinomoto Lisof® Silent-Run Wheels, YKK’s EYL abrasion-resistant zippers, a modular packing pod system, and premium metal hardware throughout, among other features.

The Wireless Carry-On Kickstarter follows the success of the HEX x Jim Lee Artist Pack, which raised more than $300k in 2019.

Over the past 10 years at HEX, we’ve successfully developed hundreds of products, and we’re incredibly excited to launch the Wireless Carry-On. The crowdfunding approach gives us the ability to offer only the very best in terms of materials and designs, as well as to introduce our own patent-pending wireless charging system,” says Trent Valladares, HEX Co-founder. “We packed a crazy amount of features into this suitcase, and it goes above and beyond anything on the market. We know people are going to love it.”

With a successfully funded Kickstarter, HEX will deliver the new Wireless Carry-Ons in early December.

  • Patent-Pending Wireless Charging SystemCharging bay is integrated and built right into the top of the suitcase so you can simply set your phone down when you’re on-the-go.

  • YKK EYL Abrasion-Resistant Zippers – These zippers have 15 times the abrasion resistance of even YKK’s standard coil zippers and are tested at approximately 50,000 cycles instead of the normal 1,300 to 1,500 cycles for regular zippers.
  • Hinomoto Lisof® Silent-Run Wheels – Bearingless design allows them to run much more smoothly and silently than other wheels.
  • TSA Approved Travel Locks – Travel Sentry certified TSA approved travel locks to keep your things safe and also allow TSA access.
