Review: The Hex Solo Phone Wallet


Gear and Gizmos  


I was  in LA at a party earlier this year and when I met a nice fellow from a company called Hex. Our mutual friend Chris introduced us when we all jumped into taxi together. I was making a phone call when he said, “You should really put a case on your iPhone.”

“I know!”, I said. Then he handed me a Hex Solo Wallet for my iPhone.

I didn’t pay much attention to the phone case after that. A few months later a friend saw it and said, “Oh neat! You can slip a card and ID in your phone case when you go out and lighten up the load.”

I hadn’t realized it. All I usually  carry when I’m out is my iPhone,  driver’s license, and a debit or credit card. This phone case wallet is perfect for the times that I’m going to a bar or even to the gym or out for a run. I can slip my phone into a pocket or an arm band and I’m good to go.

Hex was founded by Dan Maravilla and Trent Vallardes. They have been friends since their youth growing in LA’s music scene. They created a startup that eventually grew into what is known as August Accessories, which consults to fashion and action sports companies. Hex was founded by them in 2010 and is a culmination between their love of fashion and technology. Click here for more of a history about the brand.
