BACKPACK IN COMFORT WITH THE VAUCLUSE ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT VENTILATION FRAME
CARRY IN COMFORT
The Vaucluse Ultralight Ventilation Frame makes you favorite backpack exceptionally comfortable, spreading carried weight across a soft and ergonomical hexagonal frame that instantly conforms to the user's back. Rough, absorbent mesh padding common in pack design is kept at a distance, preventing chafing and sweat retention.
When your pack is strapped on tight, your back can't breathe. The Ultralight Ventilation Frame fixes this by offering 100% more airflow than conventional backpack designs by naturally ventilating your body and minimizing unwanted heat, moisture, and scent.
Frameless backpacks lack rigid shape, and can gradually harm the wearer if overloaded or improperly fitted. Even premium framed packs are often misused, with users loosening the straps for more airflow. The Ultralight Ventilation Frame adds comfortable structure to any bag, helping to prevent injury by evenly distributing weight across your body.
Backpacking is awesome. Backpack sweat sucks.
You know what I'm talking about - that pack-shaped dark spot on the back of your shirt you get after wearing a backpack. The sticky, smothering discomfort of wearing clothes soaked with sweat. Been there, done that.
We invented the Ultralight Ventilation Backpack Frame to help enjoy backpacking more comfortably. The beauty of the outdoors brought me back out again and again, but I was limited by how sweaty I got on extended hikes. If we just didn't get so dehydrated and uncomfortable, we'd have a much better time outdoors.
The Ventilation Backpack Frame enables continuous ventilation by making space between your back and your pack, allowing natural airflow to draw away excess body heat and moisture as you move. It keeps you cooler so you sweat less, and when you do sweat, it helps it evaporate before it becomes a problem. This also means less sweat ending up in your backpack, which prevents odor and extends the lifespan of your gear.
Now we can plan twelve-mile loops through Big Bend without worrying about packing extra water and a second shirt. We can also bring a backpack on vacation or on my commute and never wonder whether we'll regret it. When we are out on the trail, qw can focus on appreciating nature instead of the beads of sweat rolling down my spine.
We like it a lot better that way. We think you will too.
Happy Customer Testimonials
Rod S, Search & Rescue Team, 35L backpack from Virginia.
First time I have hiked with my Search & Rescue pack and not come back with a totally soaked back. I am sold on the product and will continue to use it.
Jerry S, day hiker with 22L backpack from Central California.
"Really comfortable. The frame was really comfortable, and my shirt was damp but not nearly as bad as it would have been if not using the frame."
Aaron S, day hiker with 30L backpack from Sedona, AZ
It works. I have not experienced sweat on my back.
Matt C, 2-3 day hiker with 35L backpack from Pennsylvania.
Works well. My back stayed dry on some heavy duty hikes.
Tyler F, day hiker with 35L backpack from Washington
In the 3 walks since, I didn’t have any sweat. So we’re on the right track. All the walks were with a t-shirt and light fleece jacket.
