How to Pick a Backpack Tip 3: Ventilation

Some backpacks feature a suspended mesh back panel to combat the sweaty-back syndrome you tend to get with internal frame packs that ride against your back. Also called a “tension-mesh suspension,” this is a trampoline-like design where the frame-supported backpack rides along a few inches away from your back, which instead rests against the highly breathable mesh.

Ventilation "chimneys" that are built into back panels and promote airflow are another option meant to solve the same issue.
