Back when I lived in SoCal, I was fixated with the coast. The sand, the surf, the sailboats. In fact, I often sailed out of Oxnard, a sleepy seaside burb just north of Los Angeles, which also happens to hide Mac-friendly bag-maker HEX.
Makes sense, then, that they’d launch the nautically themed Cabana collection, a heavily striped gathering of MacBook carriers and cases, and even an iPhone case. And nothing says “boating” more than a copious helping of stripes. But the bags aren’t just all about looks; they’re also all constructed of tough, water-resistant waxed canvas. I can practically hear the seagulls.
Prices range from $40 for the Cabana MacBook sleeve (with options from everything from an 11’ Air all the way up to a 15’ Pro) to $100 for the Cabana Sonic Backpack, which comes with a zippered outer iPad pocket and a ships-hold of a main compartment that’s large enough to swallow a 17’ MBP.
We couldn’t find the iPhone case on HEX’s site (perhaps it floated off); but it’ll probably run $35 or $40 when it finally surfaces.
