One such product that gets used often is our bags — which are long overdue for an upgrade. That's where the HEX Anti-Microbial Bag steps in. With its anti-microbial technology built right into the fabric, the bag resists up to 99 percent of harmful bacteria, mold and fungus. Its sleek look and multiple zips and pockets are hyper-functional, eliminating the need to use multiple bags for different activities. Plus, the bag features wireless charging pockets that are complete with a built in wireless battery keep you on the go.
