    This piece of luggage may look like a misfit among all the snazzy saddle and tank bags but don’t take it for granted. One 12 litre waterproof pod is all you need for a weekend of trail riding and camping. On a longer ride it will easily increase your ability to carry tools, spares, extra clothes, equipment and what not.

    It may look small but use it wisely and you will soon find your saddle bags gathering dust because you won’t need them anymore. Stitching is superb, mounting is a breeze and it is quite stable once filled up to its entire capacity.

    A must have if you want to pack light and efficient.

    I bought this POD Expanders (12 Lts) to accommodate additional stuffs. It’s really a great product, a complete water proof one. I strongly recommend this product for any additional stuffs to carry during a long ride and for weekend ride too. They welgrove base which can be locked in pillion seat and bag can be fixed on top of it. I’m making weekend rides with this POD Expander. I’m completely satisfied.

    Recently got the POD 22 as a daily driver + add-on for my Claw bag 1.0. And first off, the pictures don’t do justice to the amount of stuff you can pack into this. And it doesn’t seem bloated once full. The straps/lock mechanism is super strong and ensures that your POD stays in place even at triple digit speeds (not recommended!). I’ve been using the Claw 1.0 since 2016 and not once has the material or the stitching given way. Still going strong (which also makes it impossible for me to purchase the newer ones :p ). Really recommend the 22 for two people travel as well.

    The customer support from ViaTerra have been terrific and prompt response to queries and issues. They are on the forefront of making one of the best bike related luggage and really look forward to the newer stuff in store.

    The pod is a clever little product. Great build quality. What I liked was that it can be used as a standalone tail bag or to expand your luggage. Great quality of construction and reeks of quality. Just go for it

    It arrived, and it looks premium and it works great, I just tried it on my bike waiting to take it to weekend getaways. This will do the job as I would no more be wearing a backpack This can take in all the things for a 2 to 3 days trip. I think it is good to carry things like clothes, toiletary, books, and any other essentials. It can’t anyways carry your photography gear as it needs more rigid and cushioned bags, so if you are a photographer or a vlogger you will need to carry an additional backpack for that reason.

    A complete solution for your 2 to 3 days trip, use it as expander or just Standalone and it’ll do the job at any given day.

    Main pro is that it’s completely Waterproof and it’s good at it.

    I would suggest this at any given day and any given ride.

    This is my first purchase with viaterra. Quality is amazing and far better than my expectations. Can use it on any bike. Pack is much better than the competition.

    This is my first purchase from viaterragear and I bought a tailbag for my z900 Kawazaki. At first was I doubtful whether to buy then I decided and within days I received the package. Even in this covid time they did a spectacular work in getting the product even before the committed date.
    With regard to the product I am so convinced that they make things according to the needs of Indian bikers. My product is amazing and it’s been designed to fit perfectly.
    My suggestion is kindly add more products and the numbers of bikers are increasing day by day. Once again I received an amazing product.

    I already own a tank bag and a tail bag but i wanted something that is Super easy to put n remove from the Bike without worrying about the rain.My search ended with the POD 12 ltr. It Looks small but can pack in good amount of all the essentials you could think of a city ride or a weekend ride.
    It stays stable even on high speeds of 150 kmph.
    I am yet to test it under heavy downpour but i am confident it won’t dissapoint me. Another great product from Viaterra.

  11. 5 out of 5

    ordered the 12L pod as soon as I saw it was back in stock. great luggage option for day/ weekend trips. also, the mounting system is great, can be left on the bike and can also be used to load other small items as well.

    I ordered the POD-22 and it was delivered to me in USA exactly as described. Customer support was excellent and they made ensured that the international shipping was completed accurately. They were fast to respond to all questions and gave me great confidence ordering from the US. As for the POD-22, they are of excellent quality and are perfectly for my needs. It is great for carrying lots of useful items and the build quality and durability has been great. I have used these for multiple long trips and they have been perfect. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I look forward to buying more quality items from Viaterra in the future.

    Just the right size and the right fit for my Xpulse 200 with a Stock Back Plate.
    I ordered the Pod 22 and was waiting for the delivery but then received a call from the Viaterra team, they asked about the fitment and the model of the bike just to be sure that I am ordering the right Bag! And then we decided to go with the Pod 12, and it got delivered to Noida in just 5 days. Completely waterproof and fits in a week’s luggage. (Travel Light)

    – Thanks Team

    Purchased pod explorer 12ltr very useful tail bag for daily use and one day ride.
    It is very easy to use and compact. Pod explorer is 100 % waterproof as used in light to moderate rain

    Great build quality. It can be used as a tail bag or to expand your luggage. Great quality of construction and reeks of quality.
    Pod explorer is 100 % waterproof .

    The pod is highly underrated luggage system. The 12 & 22 litre bags are extremely versatile, easy to mount and pretty well built. I could pack most of my stuff for 10+day ride in between the pods.
    The bags are truly waterproof provided you pack them properly. The best part is how easy the bags are to mount and unmount. Very well designed product and a highly satisfied customer.

  17. 5 out of 5


    This product is very good grips very level, mounting and unmounting is just a piece of cake, material, usability wise it’s good.
    Looking forward for some more interesting products like this. And thanks a lot for this.

    Used it for short 1-2 day rides fits most of the essentials required..Also tested it out in rain its fully waterproof as claimed items inside were’nt wet at all..Regards to stability its mostly stable but recommend to tighten the straps once a while..mounting is also very easy over all its totally worth the money!

  19. 5 out of 5


    I regularly using in trips, its such a very use full product i can kept POD Tail bag tie on CLAW bag perfect fit, i can carry in motorcycle its easy to carry and tie it bike. i am using Himalayan its perfectly fit , even i can kept in over the fuel tank also it holding perfectly. product quality top notch. with this back i used rain and hot sun. its doing great again

    Got POD 22 litres with different application in mind i.e. to put my fuel bladder bag inside this bag. Serves this purpose well.

    22 litres didn’t seem to be much and factually it’s very different. I just was curious to check out capacity so went on STUFFING things and bag went on swallowing it. Best part is, kind of reflective material / colour of inner liner increases visibility well enough.

    In Viaterra, I need not say anything about stitching and material and quality and customer support and so on. Very well anchoring system puts it on hold even on bumpy roads.

    Keep it Up.!

  21. 5 out of 5


    I would consider the Pods as a much under-rated product in the Viaterra lineup considering the value it adds for the buck. I had purchased the 22 liters POD and was in two minds until the product arrived and was surprised at the space it offers. I can put in my sleeping bag, my 2 person tent (without the metal rods of course to prevent any wear and tear) and still have enough space to pack for at least 10 days trip. For travelers who believe in traveling light this is an ideal luggage system for you at an awesome price.

    Lightweight but strong. Waterproof as well. Perfect for daily commuting as well as long rides. 22 L storage is enough to carry essentials for a week long ride. I own a honda hness and dominar and it fits both of them perfectly. Definitely recommend!!!

  24. 5 out of 5


    Thank you for making such a well designed product.

    Already used on a couple of rides, and its great. Sits beautifully on the tail rack, and is just the right size for a short ride.

    I can fit in my viaterra rain jacket, puncture kit+inflator, shades, a small towel, a small lunch box, a bottle of water, and a few minor essentials (power bank, meds etc).

    Super easy to mount,and being water proof, absolute peace of mind.

    Love it!

    Got this as a tail bag that goes on with my tail rack for Xpulse 200. Does the job for weekend getaways and does it well.

    Really happy with the overall experience.

    Raj kishore dash

    i bought the 22 lit pod used it for a 4k bbs to Tawang ride advantages i see are
    1. simple
    2 brilliant strap mechanism
    3 i kept it as a spare extension luggage system it folds into a very small space. and can be kept in a bag
    4. waterproof and excellent quality as always from viaterra

    scope for improvement
    the carrying mechanism is like a duffle. i would prefer a backpack style, e.g the same straps need to be configured as a backpack.

    overall excellent buy

    Well I got Both 22 Liter and 12 Liter , This was a Best Choice of my Travel Luggage.. It’s 200% Waterproof not even a Drop of water was inside after a continuous ride of 6 to 7 hours of Rain.. I was Shocked By the outcome once I reached the destination.. My Gadgets and clothes were Dry not even moist could form.. I GUARANTEE AND ASSURE it’s the safest bag ever , Even at offroads this bags never gave up it was Perfectly Fit on the bike straps are too good and strong.. at last I CANT THINK ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN “VIATERRA”

    And the customer support from Viaterra is amazing , they respond to your queries and issues. They make sure their customers get THE BEST for what they pay.. ” The V in VIATERRA means VALUE FOR MONEY”. Customer support is Quick and they are behind any issue until they solve it and make the customer worry free..

    My Future Shopping with Viaterra Will never end.. would love to get more New Products as they introduce..

    Thank you ViaTerra..

    Overall this is a great product as a luggage carrying solution be it for a day ride or as an add on to your primary luggage. The three fold system makes the packaging and size very versatile during travel. The loops at the top are also great for attaching irregularly shaped cargo using bungee nets or cords DIY style. The only aspect that can be improved is the way of carrying the bag off the bike. It would make more sense to have a handle at the side of the main opening to keep the cargo upright. Also adding loops for use as a backpack could also be possible. Other than that, this product has served my function perfectly.

    Used the 22Ltr pod for my 20 day ride to HP and UK. These bags took torrential rains as well as snow with not a drop going inside the bag. The only downside was the bags got super dirty and had to be cleaned! Love these bags and hoping to get many more rides from them.

  32. 5 out of 5


    a must have for light travelling. am using it for daily travelling and helpful if we dont want to go for panniers which are heavier for everyday use.

  33. 5 out of 5


    Use the pod 12 ltr as my spares bag, accommodates spare tubes; all tool kits, air compressor as well as minor knick-knacks, all the while being fully waterproof. Use them using rokstraps on my tank bag. 5 stars!

  34. 5 out of 5


    The best mate for 2 or 3 days ride. 100% waterproof and an excellent product!

  35. 5 out of 5


    An added perk is that it can fit a lot of stuff as the bag itself is flexible. A foolproof waterproofing system lessens your stuff from getting wet and dirty.

    Another important factor that attracted me to the pod is its subtle and low-key look when mounted. It’s simple and aesthetically pleasing and doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb.

    The quick mount and unmount makes life more convenient too. One thing I wish it had was a stealthy strap system so that I can just unmount and carry it like any other bag.

    Shubham Tandon

    Super convenient for daily/long rides. For day ride is use it as the primary bag. And on long rides put it on top of my tail bag to use this as an alternative of tank bag (as I am not a big fan of tank bags). Good thing is that it is not only compatible with ViaTerra tail bags but others in the market as well.
    Also it’s actually 100% waterproof. Found it the hard way though. My water bottle leaked inside and all the water was held inside, not a single drop was on the outside 😭😂

    Been using it extensively for over a year now. Rugged and handy for daily short rides as well as carrying extra luggage for longer duration rides. Water proof and easy to clean. Would be great if there were mounting options for crash/accessories bar.

  38. 5 out of 5


    Brilliantly designed product. Viaterra just knows what riders need or they didn’t know they needed it. Long tours rides are a breeze now with the 22L pod strapped to my tail bag mounted on Viaterra’s tailrack. Its 100% waterproofing and sturdy quality makes it a no brainer choice..and the straps provided are very reliable and i was able to ride worry free on highways and off roads alike.

  39. 5 out of 5


    The Pod is a fantastic piece of luggage! The 22L has enough space to carry clothes, tools etc. for a 2-3 day ride. It’s also completely waterproof, so no matter how hard it rains, your luggage will be bone dry.

    Moreover, it’s easy to mount and fastening the straps makes the Pod rock-steady, even at high speeds. As expected from all Viaterra items, the quality and stitching is top-notch.

  40. 5 out of 5


    If the phrase “Looks can be deceiving” ever had a physical form, then it would look like the POD bag. Got the bag to carry my spares, tools, power cables etc and to mount it on top of my drybag.

    With it’s MOLLE capability and sturdy design, this thing can fit in loads of stuff inside it. And the added bonus is that it’s fully waterproof. I particularly like the easy access concept and the fact that I can access my stuff quickly without the need for unmounting it fully.

    It’s also an instead head turner and a lot of people simply ask just what in god’s name is this thing sticking out from my drybag.

    With a winter ride planned, I may even go for another bag – the 22L – making it the third Viaterra bag that I own.

    Simply love this brand. Keep it ip guys!

    This is such a nifty little addition to your motorcycling luggage. Perfect for weekend trips or if you just want a bit more space for squeezing in some extra clothes that won’t get into your backpack anyway. Great materials and construction.

    Prateek Rameshkumar

    I bought the 12L pod. Very good quality and made thoughtfully. Multiple tie down options because of the multiple loops on top. Velcro attachment base provides extra security. Removable inner layer and roll top keeps the contents water proof. Perfect for carrying tool roll, bike necessities and first aid kit with a larger setup, or can be used to carry things on an one day ride.

    I have been using the POD bag since last year and it is really user friendly. Carrying small essentials becomes easy for short trips with this bag and even within the city as well. The quality of the material used is good and till now have not seen any stitches coming out. The mounting is pretty much simple and there is no rocket science behind it.

    Simple. User-friendly. Waterproof!

    I bought this to compliment my claw mini or to be used during shorter rides.

    I’ve been using the claw mini since 2018 and the bag is still works like the day I got them and has absolutely been my go to bag for every long ride. This is a statement for the quality of their products and the pod is no different. The bag though simple is extremely well made and secures to the bike in seconds and I can enjoy my rides without having to worry about how secure it is. Even before I bought it they answered a lot of questions and were very helpful throughout.

    I like how the pod is an excellent product for use with sport bikes due to its compact size and mounting setup. Used over 1000 kms before writing this and can vouch for its convenience and robust design, simple and functional and carries more than enough for a weekend trip.

    Viaterra will be my first stop for all riding needs. Thankful for having you guys making exceptional products in the Indian market which are in my opinion better than international brands.

  45. 5 out of 5


    Firstly I am really happy to say that we have an Indian brand that makes such quality products for us motorcyclists. I own an MT15 which has very limited space in the back to keep any kind of luggage, I was surprised to see how easily i was able to mount the pod on it. No extra chords required. Also these bags are a 100% waterproof guaranteed. Thanks Viaterra & keep making such quality products.

  46. 5 out of 5


    Muy buena calidad, resistentes y muy buena elaboración en cada detalle, de verdad estoy asombrado los buenos productos que fabrica Viaterra, yo compre 2 unidades de 12 litros pero pronto voy a comprar 2 de 22 litros.

  47. 5 out of 5


    What can I say that has not already been aforementioned.
    I have both 12 and 22, and they are one of the most versatile waterproof packing solutions. Pair it with a Claw tail bag and you will have a modular luggage system like no other(in this budget of course).
    I have purchased it from Amazon as it was unavailable on the site when I needed it.

    Hello Team,

    I purchased Via Terra POD12 on April 2022 (Order 32159) and I am using it for long rides on my Dominar 400. I feel very comfortable with this bag while riding and it fits into my bike very perfectly. I can take it to any place without any hassle and fitting to my bike is also too easy. Added to this waterproof feature is a boon where we need not to carry any raincovers. Reflectors are well made to the bag and during night rides it plays a vital role too. And I came across one offer from your brand that I get 10 to 15% off on my next purchase through ViaTerra website and it sounded good to me as I wanted to purchase ViaTerra POD22 in coming days…

    Thank you..
