Under the Weather® has been home to the original pop-up WeatherPod™ since it was established in 2010 and is the brand of choice for outdoor enthusiasts the world over. First to market in the Outdoor Sports category, it's our mission to continue to innovate in weather protection, and relief, for backpackers, campers, sports parents, tailgating fans, music festival buffs, and anyone who's determined to “Be There. Weather or Not.™”
Meet Rick. Inventor of the pop-up personal WeatherPod™.
Rick’s the guy with an entrepreneurial spirit and a brilliant idea. We all know most ideas usually end at the “brilliant idea” stage–but not for Rick. He’s spent years creating and perfecting the original, fully-enclosable personal Pod that pops-up and folds down in seconds (and we mean seconds).
Rick’s a Perfectionist.
Drawing from 30 years in the textile industry, and his love of backpacking, camping and all things sports-related, Rick was determined to make certain his Under the Weather Pods could withstand even the harshest weather conditions. They also had to be compact, lightweight, portable and meet the highest standards of quality and construction. Check, check and check.
Make no mistake about it, these Pods are designed to do two things like none other on the market:
1. Provide durable shelter for camping and other outdoor activities that's lightweight, portable and easy to set up.
2. Create a safe space that keeps out the elements and keeps us warm, dry and comfortable, from head to toe, whatever the weather.
It’s a Pod, PodWorld™.
The Under the Weather® brand is fast becoming a household name. Our pop-up Pods have been featured in the news, numerous TV programs, articles and blogs including “Shark Tank”, NBC "Today", Weather Channel, Univision's ¡Despierta América!, The Huffington Post, and more!
