Whether you’re the kind of guy who spends much of the day in skate parks practicing tricks or simply rely on a longboard for your short-range commutes, a backpack with a skateboard strap will serve you a great deal. The Hex x Guy Mariano Skatepack does things one better, integrating a skate-specific organizer pocket for tools, parts, and other skateboarding essentials.
Skate straps in front of the bag allows you to strap down a board securely, allowing you to free up your hands while carrying your board. That strap can be hidden away, too, so it can look like any ordinary backpack for those days you’d rather leave the deck at home.
The Hex x Guy Mariano Skatepack, of course, can do more than carry your skateboarding gear. As such, it has a large main compartment with plenty of room for work, gym, and other activities, complete with organizer pouches and a padded laptop compartment that can fit computers up to 15 inches. It has a front pocket for skate-specific gear, a zippered main compartment sized for smartphones and action cams, and expandable side pockets for water bottles.
Features include an anti-abrasion front panel, mesh back panel, a non-skid bottom, and water-resistant construction all around. They even throw in a key ring that serves as a smartphone stand, so you can use your phone to film your solo tricks during lazy afternoons.
Available in two colors, the Hex x Guy Mariano Skatepack is priced at $89.95.
