CAMERA DISCIPLINE STARTS HERE

One could argue that a camera isn't a necessary item among the list of 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.

Large Camera Pod

Awesome product. My Sony a7Rv with a Tamron 28-200mm fits perfectly. I highly recommend this pod.

Lightweight protection

Ok, for most people, it’s probably on the upper end of camera pods price wise. But, given the value of the camera you might be carrying in it, or the pain of breaking a lens or camera in the middle of a trip . . . Well worth the investment.

My Nikon Z6 with 24 - 70 mm zoom lens fits perfectly. The pod offers pretty good protection. It feels like it would protect the camera from more bangs and bumps, and perhaps a drop from a few feet. I recently took a trekking trip through Nepal and Bhutan. On more occasions than I like to remember, I felt my pod encased camera clank against rocks, chairs, tables, etc. It survived unscathed. Good job Hyperlite.

Sony A7RV fits the large perfectly

Recently tried many holster-style bags sold by the large camera web sites and either cheap construction or too many frills or bad fit. The HMG Camera Pod meets my needs perfectly and fits my Sony A7RV with a variety of lens including the 24-105/f with hood extended. The Pod is wide enough to grab the body. Zippers work well.

I typically hike using a capture clip and am using the Pod as a padded bag for stowing my camera in my pack but will see if I like having the pod connected in front to either shoulder strap

Looks Good So Far

I have yet to try it in the field but from what I have seen so far, I think it will be good. Well made - hey, it’s Hyperlite - and functional at least as much as I have assessed it. We have a trip planned for early December when I will see if it has the chops in the field.
