Hi,

I like my ULA conduit lots, except that it gets really hot during hot weather.

Would adding a couple of strips of 3d mesh to the back help with cooling things down a bit ?

Something to keep it directly off your back may work better... not sure about the mesh.

I have a conduit and I get the back-sweats pretty much no matter what.

I bet a layer or two of ridgerest pad aligned to rest on your rear hips/lower back to keep the majority off your mid/upper back would help some. Since the loads you typically carry in a conduit, in the summer are minimal, pushing it off your back probably won't add too much extra pressure to the top/front of your shoulders.

I don't think mesh will help unless there's space behind it with free-flowing air.

Curious to hear how this goes.

I think i'll go the chamois route, put a chamois between the pack and my back.
