Although Halo Infinite has been delayed to 2021, it appears a number of the tie-in merchandise items for the game will be released as scheduled. Microsoft recently announced new Halo Funko Pops, while the company also partnered with Monster Energy for a new campaign. The next 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 Spartan backpack has multiple compartments and can hold a laptop up to 15″. 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.
