Improve your backpack experience

We love our backpacks. However, they trap heat, and tend to make us hot and sweaty - and can cause back and shoulder strain.
VentaPak's frame and mesh suspension delivers superior ventilation and comfort. It also improves back comfort and posture. 

VentaPak will make you enjoy biking, walking, hiking, exploring, and more with your favorite backpack(s).

Testimonials

"It’s perfect...less sweat and much drier to any destination"

Got this for sweaty back when cycling. It’s perfect and simple setup. good for regular walks, hikes, anything. less sweat and much drier to any destination. Will buy again for different everyday use backpacks.

"my daughters, all students, are enthused to carry their things more comfortably..."

I bought five VentaPaks for my family, having seen how well it works and its ease of use. It makes so much sense that we wondered why it doesn't already exist. My daughters, all students, are enthused to carry their things more comfortably, and I look forward to biking and traveling with it.

"I would recommend this to anyone suffering from neck or back pain"

As a physical therapist, I always see people hunched over as they carry their backpacks on their commute. The VentaPak is great as an ergonomic aid - as soon as you put it on you can feel how it prevents your thoracic spine and shoulders from rounding forward when in standing postures. It's also very comfortable! I would recommend this to anyone suffering from neck or lower back pain that has to wear a backpack daily.

"I use this everyday for work...to reduce the strain on my back"

I can't express how great the Ventapak is.
The airflow is great and keeps me cool throughout the day. I also use this product for when I am grabbing groceries, or riding my bike around New York City on the weekends. I can have a load of groceries in my bag, and it feels like the weight is reduced so much. It is very easy to take on and off. Highly recommend this product!

"...attaches quickly and seamlessly to my own backpack"

When I had a chance to try the VentapPak, I was sold immediately. It attaches quickly and seamlessly to my own backpack, distributing the weight better and making it noticeably more balanced and comfortable. Promotes the continued health of my back, too. Thanks, VentaPak — we needed this clever, elegantly simple device!

"Same concept as on my giant 40L high end camping/hiking pack"

Its great for day hikes. Needed to get my pack off my sweaty back. Same concept as on my giant 40L high end camping/hiking pack.

"...kept my shirt dry and fresh throughout the day!"

In my 5 years of using a bicycle for my main mode of transportation in New York City, I wish I’d had a VentaPak because having sweaty back was all too common a thing. If I had had the VentaPak, it would’ve kept my shirt dry and fresh throughout the day! An added bonus is that it helps keep your backpack nicely aligned in the center of your back whereas my other backpacks would slide side-to-side on my back when I would stand on my pedals to go up bridges, throwing off my weight. This design creates a snug fit with plenty of airflow so your pack stays in place and you don’t get overheated. I love it!

"This is a must have, here's why....my posture!"

As a gardener, I frequently use a backpack leafblower, as a hiker I always carry a backpack. This is a must have, here's why....my posture! Yes my back is no longer drenched in sweat, but it's my posture that impresses me the most. No more hunched over or juggling the weight, ventapak not only decreases sweating, it distributes the weight while supporting good posture. This is a must have for thru hikers & landscapers, actually anyone who wears a backpack.

"This is the best backpack secret out there."

So easy to attach and now my my tennis racquets are off my back and my bike ride is breezy. Freedom! VentaPak is the perfect gift for tennis players! Who would have thought?! This is the best backpack secret out there. Looks durable, stays in place and yet the mesh on the back is so comfortable. I adjusted for just my size. Glad I found this.

The Story Behind VentaPak

"...encouraged by how much better my bike rides felt with even this crude prototype and with support of some early fans, I began iterating designs with a leading industrial designer..."

The Birth of VentaPak -- Origin Story

Dec 07, 2020 Mark Dingle

After many years, many miles and many destinations, I became increasingly bothered by a few well known shortcomings in their comfort. If I was having issues with my backpack, I was sure others were as well. This is how the VentaPak was born.

Comfort. Convenience. Ease.
