STUFF YOUR PUFF.

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 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!

Perfect!
Just when I thought the pods couldn't improve. I use these for my underquilts, quilts, clothes, and anything else like that. l like that extra touch of moisture security. Very happy with this new item.

Best Packing System Ever
What’s not to love about it! The volume seems smaller but I can get both my quilt and down pillow in the large because you can compress it down a lot more, thus saving even more space. The more I can roll down my pack, the more comfortable it is

Great Small Pod
Used for my extra clothing on a four day trip in the pacific NW. It worked very well. Will be getting the large zipper pod next. Trying to develop a nice packing system in my 3400 Windrider.

Getting started.

Bought the 12L size for my 3400 thinking the 10L might be too small, even though it was recommended for the 70L pack. Held my quilt just fine. Should make packing up a little bit easier.

Simply Genius!

Wow, HMG brings simple concept to a pack fitting pod. I’ve used pods for a few years now. The side entry is a wonderful piece of gear for my quilt. Stuffs and seals so easily.

Perfect for sleeping bag

I have a feathered friends 20° bag, and the stuff sack it comes with is 8L. The sleeping bag fits perfectly into this. I love the little slot at the bottom that allows me to stick My fingers in to use to pull away while i take the sleeping bag out. Great product!
