"...I have been riding my bike to work. The VentaPak has been a godsend."

Living in NYC, and with the pandemic in full bloom, I have been riding my bike to work. The VentaPak has been a godsend. It distributes the weight of my backpack so it rests comfortably on my back, and it limits the sweat factor of the backpack resting against my skin. I love it riding and also look forward to using the VentaPak on hikes next spring and summer.

"This is the best backpack secret out there."

So easy to attach and now 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.

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

I can't express how great the Ventapak is. I use this everyday for work, and it has helped a great deal to reduce the strain on my back. The weight distribution is great. It also helps a lot on my posture, straightening out my back. The airflow is great and keeps me cool throughout the day. I also have used this product for when I am grabbing groceries, or riding my bike around New York City on the weekends. It is very easy to take on and off. Highly recommend this product !

"His back gets sore and his shirts get sweaty. Fix + Fix. He loves it!"

I gave this to my son since I know how much he rides his bike to classes on campus. His back gets sore and his shirts get sweaty. Fix + Fix. He loves it!

"...attaches quickly and seamlessly..."

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!

"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.

VentaPak Origin Story

While biking to work on summer days in New York City, Mark realized a major problem that detracted from the otherwise great experience -- his backpack was pressing into his back, trapping heat, and drenching his shirt with sweat.  He realized through research and conversations the "sweaty back" is an all too common issue with backpack users.

Together with a leading industrial designer, he created the VentaPak to make biking, hiking, walking, traveling, and other activities using a backpack more comfortable and enjoyable.
