Vaucluse Backpack Ventilation Gear was founded on one simple premise - it's almost impossible not to sweat when wearing a backpack. Consistent with this same thought, it's almost impossible to find gear from a company that you can truly believe in - a brand that's an extension of you rather than the other way around.
In our quality and commitment to American-made products, it's our hope that you will wear Vaucluse gear with a quiet, confident sense of pride. You've finally found the gear that helps you sweat less when backpacking.
You wouldn't tell everyone you know about Vaucluse, but you might tell your best friend or hiking group... simply because they deserve to know.
Thank you for buying into our dream of building an authentic American outdoor company that solves a simple problem: how to sweat less when backpacking.
TO SWEATING LESS,
Brice Sokolowski President - Vaucluse Backpack Ventilation Gear
ABOUT THE NAME
Vaucluse Backpack Ventilation Gear is named after the Vaucluse region in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in southeast France. Yes, we are an American company with a French name! Our founder enjoyed many hot (and sweaty) summers in the region during his childhood.
The Vaucluse is a crown jewel of French nature and is famous for its landscapes, lavender fields, honey, and wine. The region is rife with rugged mountain terrain and breathtaking views and enjoys more than 300 days of sun each year - with all that sun comes a lot of sweat! Enjoying the Vaucluse is a year-round activity, so we wanted to enjoy the region more by improving a backpack's airflow and ventilation - which we now can!
A portion of the profit from every sale is donated to bee farming, and trail upkeep organizations in the Vaucluse region and across the United States.
All Vaucluse products are designed and manufactured in the USA.
