Sweat less when backpacking. Vaucluse Gear's mission is to help backpackers stabilize their body temperature by evaporating back sweat with their Cool-Dry air flow system. Our products maximize the airflow between you and your favorite backpack to stay cool and dry when hiking.

The Vaucluse Gear Cool-Dry Frame attaches in seconds to your current backpack to produce a cooling airflow on your back as you hike. The lightweight frame also allows the heat and sweat to evaporate off your back. As a result, you sweat less and stay dry.

Vaucluse Gear is based deep in the heart of Austin, Texas. All of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA.

We are named after the beautiful Vaucluse region in southern France where our founder loves to hike. The Vaucluse is a department in the southeastern French region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and is famous for its stunning hiking and cycling trails, lavender fields, honey, and wine. The Tour de France often climbs the famous Mont Ventoux in the northern part of the region. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, the Vaucluse is a hiking destination for enthusiasts. With all that sun, it can also get very hot on the trails. The region is also famous for its lavender fields that the bees use to produce delicious honey.

Vaucluse Gear is passionate about giving back to the people and cultures that inspired us to launch our adventure outdoor company.

We reinvest a portion of our profit to bee farming because our frames use the engineering genius of the honeycomb.

We also support the upkeep of trails in the Vaucluse and Austin regions.

We designed our products so that people could better enjoy their hiking adventures. Our frames evaporate the uncomfortable back sweat that occurs when hiking. The airflow spacers help keep your body temperature cool. Whether you are on a day trip or a week-long excursion, Vaucluse Cool-Dry Gear will keep your body cool and back dry.
