Customer Project: Cuben Packing Pod
I made a stackable pod for my pack. Modeled after Hyperlite Mountain Gear’s pods that they sell in the stuff sack section of their website. Final dimensions are 6.5 in x 12.9 in x 5.5 in.
1 - Half yard of 1.0 oz cuben fiber
1 - cuben fiber adhesive tape, 1/2 in
2 ft - Uretek coil zipper, #3
2 - double sided coil slider # 3
2 - Cuben fiber repair tape (in places I thought needed some reinforcement/extra waterproofing , mainly where the zipper ends on the sides)
How do I make it?
The top, bottom, and back of the pouch are all one piece I cut to reduce the number of seams, then I cut one more front perimeter piece to be the face. I added in seam allowances to all the cuts beforehand to make sure everything worked out well, and it did!
