One of four excellent products I purchased to get me back outdoors. Everything I needed in one place with awesome Customer Service!
I’m not the type of guy that carries a backpack daily or even more than a couple times a month for trips and hiking. if you are that type of guy that does EDC a lot of stuff and doesn’t want to stand out as much, the gossamer frame sheet is a must. Definitely makes the bag stand out a lot less with no/minimal rigidity loss. I don’t see myself putting the aluminum back in unless I’m carrying a very heavy load. Most likely I would do that in my G4 anyway. Long story short, if you don’t want the bag to stand out as much, Especially if you have the scabbard folded, I personally would get the frame sheet.
So dumb questions. I have the G4 operator pack. It came with the intex2 aluminum frame and also came with tje gossamer frame. So here is the dumb question, they are ment to be use separately correct not together at same time? In the description it says the gossamer complements the intex2. But that doesnt mean together correct?
Added this to my older generation Terminator pack. The pack suspension was curving when compressed. This frame solved the problem completely and made the pack way more comfortable when it is loaded heavy. I highly recommend it for any pack that does not already have one. I guess that is why they have switched to using it in so many of their packs.
Bought this so i can load up my G1. Arrived in a timely manner. Dropped into pack, then took the belt from my Skycrane. Perfect lighter backpack configuration. Quality as always. Highly recommend it.
