Behold the zenith of space-saving, ultralight, and efficient storage for quilts, sleeping bags, or clothing.
STUFF YOUR PUFF.

The Side Entry Pod builds upon the legendary organizational prowess of the original with a twist. Or a roll in this case.

Since their release in 2016, our packing Pods have changed the way countless adventurers load up their kits for trips into the wild. The brilliant use of space, the added carry comfort, and the extra barrier of protection from the elements are features that sell themselves. Our 8L and 10L Side Entry Pods take these qualities and up the ante with a roll-top opening for storing soft, compressible items like your sleep setup or clothing. Treat the squishy stuff to the same exceptional Pod-ness the rest of your other essentials enjoy!

STUFF YOUR PUFF.

My quilt says thank you

I've been using the zippered pods for a while, and although I like how they let me organize my gear I definitely struggled a bit with getting sleeping quilt into/out of them. More than once I've accidentally snagged the quilt in the zipper resulting in a brief freak out moment. No harm done, but probably just a matter of time. Anyway, I picked up a couple of side entry pods when they became available and they work great - I've only used the small so far, but my 30 degree EE quilt fit into it with room to spare.

Great for our double quilt

Yes, a double quilt fits in this! Our 20° ugq double quilt fit in this pod for a 6 day trip to glacier. Kept it dry during snow and rain. It even stopped “banana pepper juice” from getting to the quilt. Yes banana peppers…don't judge us. The grab handle on the bottom is ingenious and works well to get that big fluffy purple marshmallow out at the end of the day.

Been waiting for these

I've used the zipper pods almost since day 1; have always loved them. Actually did use them for quilts a couple times but stuffing with the zipper was problematic. Now with the side entry rolltop I have what I was hoping for some time ago: stuff the quilt, close and into the bottom of the pack, no fuss. Love these things for my quilts. Zipper pods still rule my pack for other things (clothes, food, ....). I expect these will hold up as good as if not better than the zipper version (which I have yet to replace).
