Sweating with a school bag is expected. However, it can also be very uncomfortable and even embarrassing. Today I'm going to be sharing with you a very simple way to equip your favorite backpack so you’ll sweat a lot less when you're running, walking (or sprinting) from class to class.

Hi, I'm Brice, president of Vaucluse Backpack Ventilation Gear, and I’m sharing how our Ultralight Backpack Ventilation Frame can easily update, upgrade, and enhance your favorite school backpack so when you're moving around, you won't sweat as much.

Sweat Less with School Backpack - Vaucluse Ventilation Frame

Because sweating is common on the back (because of limited breathability), when you're moving from point A to point B (or classroom to classroom), heat forces the body to cool off by producing sweat. Sweat is actually trying to cool you down. However, if you don't allow sweat to evaporate, it's going to stay on your back, causing the infamous sweat stain.

You can reduce and even eliminate sweat stain simply by allowing air to ventilate between you and your backpack. As a result, air flows on your back and blows away body heat and sweat droplets.

More than likely, you have a favorite backpack for school, so my question is, how do you keep that backpack from giving you sweat stains that may eventually ruin the backpack, while leaving you feeling uncomfortable wearing it? That's where my Vaucluse Ultralight Ventilation Frame comes into play.

Here I have a classic North Face backpack which a lot of people probably use. You might use an Eastpak or a Jansport, but this is a typical design of a school backpack and, right here, I have the Vaucluse Ventilation Frame frame attached to it.

As you can see, it's easy to attach. You put these loops around the straps and clip, and then do the same thing on the other side. The easiest and lightest way to keep this frame on your backpack is to use Velcro. It attaches to your backpack in seconds and helps increase air flow. The frame weighs just 3.3 ounces or less than 100 grams.

Let me put the backpack on to show you, and I'll zoom in on the gap between me and the backpack. Now if you want, you can lower it, depending on how you like to wear your backpack, and that air flow gap (about three-quarters of an inch) is going to stay.

The frame is very durable. You can load as many books as you want and the frame is not going to collapse on you. You're going to have that air flow regardless of how many books you have in your backpack. If you don't need the frame, for whatever reason, you can take it off within seconds and have your backpack the way it was before. You may see alternative ventilation accessories that you can put on your backpack but those usually weigh more than a pound. They're very heavy while this, as I mentioned before, weighs only 3.3 ounces (under a fifth of a pound).

When you’re wearing it, you don't even feel it. This frame is ideal for the typical school backpack. It might be a little large for kids under the age of 13 so we are developing a smaller version. If you want to stay in the loop for updates on when this kid-size frame will be released, visit our website, VaucluseGear.com and share your contact information, and we'll notify you when the Kids Frame is released.

Thank you so much for your attention. I hope this video was helpful. Here’s to sweating less.
