The Ventilated PBD SOOLITE38 is a 34/38-liter ultralight Dyneema backpack with a lightweight external ventilation frame for maximum airflow and comfort. It has five outer pockets: two large side pockets for easy access to water bottles and other items (no need to stop and take off your bag), two small side pockets for additional storage and easy access while hiking, and one main body external pocket for storing items (e.g., drying clothing). 

The ventilated backpack is handmade in the USA. PBD (Packback Designs) Ultralight fabricates the backpack, and Vaucluse Gear produces the ventilation frame. Both gear companies are located in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Vaucluse Gear's Ultralight Ventilation Frame was voted Best Up-and-Coming Gear of 2024 by GearJunkie. Both PBD and Vaucluse Gear are proud members of the Garage Grown Gear community of outdoor brands.

We also have this backpack in a 38L with a comfortable padded belt kit. Click here to view the Ventilated SOOLITE25.

The Ventilated SOOLITE38 backpack offers the best of both worlds: ultra-lightweight and maximum ventilation, ensuring you stay cool and comfortable on your outdoor adventures. It is made with DCF Dyneema 2.92oz Composite Fabric, providing the perfect durability and weight efficiency combination. 

The spacious pockets allow for convenient storage of your essentials and easy access while hiking. You don't need to take your pack off to get that water bottle or snack.

The Ventilated SOOLITE38 is an excellent USA-made alternative to popular ultralight brands such as Durston (made in Canada), Hyperlite (Mexico), Zpacks (USA), and Gossamer (Vietnam). 

18-month product workmanship warranty.
