DESCRIPTION

Welcome to the future of backpacking which is sweat-free! Get 100x more airflow between you and your backpack to keep you cool and dry during all your backpacking adventures.

This lightweight frame (only 6 ounces) is light, durable, and flexible. It attaches directly to your current backpack in seconds to create a natural airflow between you and the pack. There is no mesh or other material that soaks up sweat and retains heat. This design maximizes airflow and comfortability to keep your back cool and dry.

The frame is soft and comfortable on your back. The frame is built of very soft and flexible thermo-rubber. The soft rubber is threaded into shape to perfectly balance durability and comfort. It has a great load-bearing capacity, high elongation at break, and a high level of tensile strength. The frame is designed to be soft and flexible on your back while also being strong enough to withstand the day-to-day ordeals of hiking with a backpack. We 100% guarantee comfort even for hours of hiking each day.

100% comfort guarantee. If you do not think this design transforms your hiking experience for the better, simply contact us as we will reimburse your order - NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

The universal design allows you to attach the frame to your existing backpack in seconds. You can easily attach and reattach the frame to use it with any of your backpacks. 

The honeycomb design offers flexibility to contour with your back, durability to survive all your hiking adventures, and large open pockets to allow air to flow across your entire back freely. As you move and your back flexes, so does the frame.

The model is unisex.

Vaucluse Gear's Cool-Dry Frame is your go-to companion for eliminating uncomfortable sweat that accumulates on your back when hiking. Yes, you read correctly: eliminates sweat. Whether you are on a short or long trip, the lightweight frame keeps your back cool and dry at all times.  

Traveling or hiking can be uncomfortable with the buildup of back sweat. Our frame is designed to eliminate sweat and keep your back cool. It does so by comfortably placing a gap of separation between you and your backpack. 

The COOL-DRY BACKPACK FRAME 6 HONEYCOMB SERIES has dimensions of 15 x 9 x 1.4 inches (depth is based on 0.75-inch spacers)

The lightweight frame attaches directly to day packs, hydration packs, school packs, and everyday packs with torso dimensions of 15 to 22 inches. The 6-Series can fit on larger packs.

Most backpacks include a foam mesh and curved plates that only absorb sweat and trap heat, causing more discomfort than anything else. These backpacks (which can cost several hundreds of dollars) do not solve the problem of dispersing heat, lowering back temperature, allowing sweat to evaporate, or keeping your back cool. Additionally, as these backpacks absorb sweat over time, the back panel can smell horrible after prolonged absorption. This requires you to buy a new backpack.

Designed and fabricated in the USA.

Our frames use the engineering wisdom of the honeycomb shape. We thank the bees for their natural genius by investing a portion of our profit into bee farming. We also support the upkeep of trails in the Vaucluse region. The Vaucluse is a department in the southeastern French region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, the Vaucluse is a hiking destination for enthusiasts. Our company's founder has an affinity for the trails and landscape of southern France.

LIGHTWEIGHT FRAME

The frame is fabricated with a durable and lightweight thermo-rubber. The frame is designed to be soft and flexible on your back while also being strong enough to withstand the day-to-day ordeals of hiking with a backpack. 

The overall weight is superlight at 6 ounces. That is around two pairs of wool socks.

Durable, lightweight, comfortable, and weather-resistant material allows for continuous airflow between you and your backpack. The physical spacer between you and your backpack can be adjusted to accommodate your comfortability, maximize airflow, and position of the backpack. 

The honeycomb frame design offers an ergonomic fit to your back and easily flexes as you hike.

CONSTANT COOLING AIRFLOW

The Cool-Dry Frame supports the customization of spacing between you and your backpack. Different size spacers can be fitted to maximize your back's contour and comfort. This also allows you to modify the amount of airflow between you and your backpack. For example, if you are hiking somewhere hot, causing you to sweat considerably more, you may want to evaporate the sweat more quickly by increasing the airflow.

No matter how you like to wear your backpack, the frame can be adjusted to accommodate both airflow and comfort. 

Please visit our section on Spacers for additional sizes.

UNIVERSAL FIT - UNISEX

Sweat Checks from Cool-Dry Frame customers:

"With the warm temps my back didn’t sweat at all…nice! It’s well constructed, lightweight, flexible, and doesn’t feel odd when wearing it."
- Mike L, multi-day hiker with a daypack, Tucson, AZ 

"I did not sweat as much as normal with the extra space between my shirt and the Cool-Dry Frame. Felt good and had no gear issues."                                                            - Walter S, day hiker with 22L Osprey backpack from North Carolina

"Works well. My back stayed dry on some heavy duty hikes."                                        - Matt C, 2-3 day hiker with 35L backpack from Pennsylvania

"The Cool-Dry Frame seems to deliver on its promise. The length [of the Frame] creates a lot of real estate on my back where air can reach. I am very pleased with the performance of the Cool-Dry Frame. It is also very comfortable with no discernible pinching or weird rubbing."
- Coy S, multi-day hiker with 35L and 60L packs from Alabama.

"It works. I have not experienced sweat on my back. The only area that I get sweaty is at the very bottom where the bag touches my body near the waist area. This is fine as it still significantly reduces the amount of sweat/water-loss by at least 80%."
- Aaron S, day hiker with 30L backpack from Arizona

"Really comfortable. I hiked 6 miles (3 up and 3 down) in 80 degree weather. I put the frame on my day pack with 2 liters of water and some clothes. 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."
- Jerry S, day hiker with 22L backpack from California

"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. Comfortable. Lightweight."
- Rod S, Search & Rescue Team, 35L backpack from Virginia

"I’ve taken it out 3 times for my daily walk to see how it’d behave. I tested on Sunday without it and had a sweaty back. 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."
- Tyler F, day hiker with 35L backpack from Washington

"Overall, I had no issues with the frame's fit on my daypack (with 2 full bottles of water). I hardly remembered it was attached and didn’t bother me while hiking at all. I hiked about 6 miles.  Starting temp was 65 degrees. The ending temp was 82. My shirt was a bit wet, and my pack stayed dry. I sweat a lot, but likely not as much if I hadn’t worn it."
- Rob G, day hiker with a 20L backpack from Texas
