Zip it! Zip it Good!

Zip and unzip the zippers a few times to loosen them up. Check out our UTW Zipper Video for tips on zipping it good (and smooth)!


Practice makes perfect.

Don’t get caught in the rain! The more you practice folding, the easier it gets. Check out this step-by-step video. For a condensed version of Rick’s “top tips,” check out Folding Pod Tips.
