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.

Waterproof!!!!

I took this to Iceland in May to carry my Canon R5 and lens. It poured rain all day and it kept my camera completely dry as I walked to glaciers, waterfalls, and beaches. I was completely shocked in a good way. I am thinking of buying a second one just in case you stop making them. I bought the Peak Design Slide Lite Camera Strap and connected it to the case. Then wore it around my neck the whole time.

Not 100% waterproof

The lightness is exceptional, as is the space for carrying gear. However... I used the pod to carry 2 cameras during a very rainy day, walking for a few hours outdoors. I did not actually use the cameras outdoors -- I was just carrying them in the pod. I had full confidence in the pod based on reading / looking at a lot of reviews. Given the cost and care needed for camera equipment, I was expecting this to be fully waterproof. I was surprised and a bit dismayed that both my cameras were not dry and some visible water drops/condensation (small) present when I opened the pod when returning indoors. They weren't 'wet' and there was no water inside the pod, but clearly there was minor ingress. Of course, there is always human error one could suggest I didn't fully close the zipper? That being said, the 2 zipper sliders don't appear to completely meet, so there is some potential for water to get in at that intersection. In the future, I will put the equipment in another bag inside the pod to ensure 100% protection. I still like the pod for its other great qualities, but if your equipment is sensitive, do be cautious when in very rainy conditions.

Waterproof!!!

I just took this to Iceland. Had my Canon R5 plus lens in the bag around my neck in pouring rain for three days. It kept my camera completely dry.

Rugged little bag.

I’m a professional photographer who’s purchased hundreds of bags, slings, inserts, and cases over the years. I’m super impressed with the material and construction of this pod. I’m using it as a backpacking and bikepacking add-on pouch. Love it. I hope you release more photography focused products.
