It is normal for the UTWPod™ to be a little stiff and the wires slightly bent from being packaged, stored and shipped. We recommend you open your Pod upon receipt, lay it flat, and make sure the wires lay flat. It is all right to step on them firmly to flatten them and, once popped up, do another quick check to ensure the wires are straight, straightening them by hand if necessary.
It is normal for a new UTWPod™ to be stiff and a little more difficult to zip and unzip. Pods “stretch out” slightly with use. If the zipper separates slightly when it is new, hold the Pod firmly and push the zipper up and down a few times. The zipper typically re-connects and with ongoing use, is completely functional.
Try setting your Pod up in the sun for a few hours. The heat from the sun can greatly reduce the wrinkles and also makes zipping easier.
We discourage the use of our Pods on concrete or asphalt as friction can cause a tear in the floor. Pods with tears in the floor resulting from use on concrete or asphalt are not covered by our warranty. We recommend adding a layer of padding if the pod is being used on a rough surface, such as an old blanket.
Check out our folding videos for demonstrations on how to open and fold your pop-up WeatherPod™.
A soft brush, microfiber wipe or chammy can be used with warm soapy water to clean the zippered panels, oxford polyester fabric and tent floor.
If you use your Pod while social distancing we recommend leaving the Pod outside after use and disinfecting it according to CDC guidelines at CDC.gov.
NO! This is a potential safety hazard. Do not use matches, candles, heaters or allow open flames of any kind in or near the Under the Weather® Pod. Do not smoke in or near the Under the Weather® Pod.
Under the Weather® pop-up Pods can be folded and placed in case for a few hours after being exposed to wet conditions. If storing your pop-up Pod in it’s case for more than 24 hours, open the Pod and let it air out and dry thoroughly before returning it to it’s carry case for longer-term storage.
The plastic windows on a UTWPod™ are easily cleanable. Dampen a clean washcloth with water and gently wipe both sides of the windows. Then wipe the windows using a dry cloth to dry the windows and avoid streaks.

Unfortunately, many popular brands have imitations, products which have a logo and look alike, but the quality is not comparable. Unless your UTWPod™ is purchased on our Under the Weather® website or at DICK’s Sporting Goods, Field & Stream, Scheels, or Walmart, chances are it is not ours and the quality will not be comparable. We do also sell on Amazon, but be sure to check that you are purchasing from our Under the Weather® store to guarantee quality and service. While unfortunate, we actively monitor and enforce our patents and trademarks. You know what they say, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" Be smart and help us protect our brand’s integrity by spreading the word!
