Microsoft recently announced new Halo Funko Pops, while the company also partnered with Monster Energy for a new campaign. The merchandising opportunity for Halo Infinite is a new collaboration with the apparel company Hex for branded backpacks and more.
Described as “premium bags,” these new backpacks and duffels were designed in partnership with developer 343 Industries as part of the marketing campaign for Halo Infinite. The Hex Halo collection includes four items in total, including a Spartan backpack ($100 USD), a Spartan Tech backpack ($200 USD), an ONI sling ($80 USD), and a UNSC duffel ($150 USD). They are all available to pre-order now, and shipping is free for orders of $75 USD or more, so all of these items qualify. International shipping is also available.

The bag is inspired by Master Chief, and as such, it sports an olive-green color and Chief’s Spartan-117 ID number. The Tech backpack is a super-sized version of the backpack, with more space for storing equipment like gaming gear. As you can see in the image above, this bag has enough space to hold a standard-size Xbox (probably not the much-bigger Xbox Series X, though), along with headphones and two controllers.
The ONI sling, meanwhile, features a military-style molle clip system so you can strap gear onto it, padded main compartment with a movable divider, while the front has a zipper pocket. The ONI bag also sports the badge and logo for the Official of Naval Intelligence (ONI).
Finally, the UNSC duffel is just that–a duffel bag with numerous accessory pockets and magnetic handles. It is water-resistant and it has a shoulder strap as well. It’s a fitting grey color with the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) logo on it. You can see the full descriptions for each of the Hex items below, and they are all available for pre-order now.
