CAMERA DISCIPLINE STARTS HERE

One could argue that a camera and a camera bag for hiking aren't necessary items among the equipment that constitutes the backcountry essentials. But we're not the argumentative types, and we understand that for many of you, documenting the transformative places you visit isn't only highly desirable; it may also be your meal ticket.

With the same level of design intention, construction quality, and mayhem readiness as our packs, shelters, and accessories, the Camera Pod is our answer to your quest for an ultralight, durable, and weatherproof camera-carrying solution. Built with a selection of Dyneema® Composite Fabrics we know will offer the best performance and protection for the incredibly low overall weight, you can keep the focus on the shot you're after and know your photography equipment is just as secure as all your other gear.

Exactly What I Needed
I trekked hundreds of miles over 6 weeks through the Himalayas wearing this across my chest suspended from my backpack straps. The perfect solution for people who hike long distances with a camera.

An Absolute Game Changer
I bought the large camera pod and it fit perfectly. I even walked through a downpour with it strapped to my chest and I got no moisture inside the pod. It felt very nice wearing it on my chest, and helped disburse the weight of camera gear.

Great Camera Bag!
I was looking for a lightweight camera bag. Wanted something that was easy to access but wasn’t cumbersome or heavy. This is perfect. I’ve tried other camera carry devices. This is the one! Well worth the money.

Nice product!

I like the product, however it is not quite wide enough at the opening for my Olympus OM-D EM-2 MkII. This is on me. I measured the length of the camera with the lenses I plan to use and declared victory without considering weather or not the other dimensions were adequate.

Ultimately, I'm keeping it for one use case while ordering the large size for other use cases.

My camera does fit into the regular size pod with an Olympus 14-42mm EZ pancake lens if I put it in sidesways. If I attach the 14-150 mm lens which is 3" long, I can no longer turn it sideways and the width of the camera body exceeds the pod opening by a hair and won't go in. I'm expecting the large size to work better.

Impressively tough and versatile

This pod is a perfect fit for taking my Sony a6400 along on all my adventures. I've only had it about 6 months, but so far it's been fully submerged in fast flowing rivers, scraped against granite and sandstone boulders and slabs, squeezed through tight tangles of bush, and covered in thick mud while attached to the waistband of my climbing pack. Through all that abuse, it's kept my camera perfectly dry, safe, and clean. The only complaint I have is about the supplied carabiners and lanyard. I managed to destroy the carabiners on my first trip with the pod. I've since replaced them with proper wire gate climbing carabiners and all has been greta since then. Once my current pod inevitably succumbs to the abuse of my trips, I won't hesitate to replace it.

Large is the exact size of my Nikon Z6 with 24 to 70 f/4 with lens hood on.

Another perfect solution for stowing your camera either in your pack or attached to your chest. Waterproof, durable ASF, hyperlite lite, lol. I don’t want to always take my f stop camera pack into the backcountry. Now I can just take my camera and know it’ll stay safe in any situation. Just another example of hyperlite’s dedication to the pursuit of the absolute best and lightest minimalistic gear for anything mountains and backcountry!

Totally changes the camera carrying game…

I initially used a backpack strap camera clip for my backcountry adventures while carrying my full frame sony. The camera itself is pretty heavy, and the one shoulder strap clip always kind of made one side of my shoulder hurt. I ordered this because I am doing a thru hike this year and wanted something that would clip a bit better to the pack, but also keep dust and debris out of any cracks and crevices. so far, I am extremely delighted with this pod, I have taken it on one trip so far and it totally changed the game for me. The weight is very well distributed because I clipped it to my chest strap and it almost is like it counterbalances the weight of my backpack, so I hardly even feel it.

For reference, i have a Sony a7Riv with a sigma 24-70 f2.8 and the Large is a perfect fit.
