The F1 Mainframe represents what is arguably the greatest innovation in modern pack making, the holy grail of a great modular pack system. But unlike any other pack system, with this load bearing workhorse as a base, you can build a true ultra-light pack simply by adding one of our J2DB Dry Bags.

The F1 is one of the primary base-platforms for the EMOD -- the  Eberlestock Modular System, and it works with an ever-growing number of complimentary accessories. Add components of your choice, and the Mainframe can function as a freight pack, day pack, or all-around utility pack.  For hunting, it transforms to a meat hauler within seconds

ULTRALIGHT SETUPS

  • The Transformer is ideal for day or overnight hunt trips. Stay organized but still have a frame to haul meat.
  • Use 2 Batwings when you plan to go in light and come out heavy. Stay quick, light and mobile with the Batwings. They are intuitive and make packing out meat simple.

MID-RANGE SETUPS

  • Pair with the Spike Duffel or Dry Bag with Batwings for a 2-4 day hunt. Pack all of your gear into the backcountry and when you reach camp and drop your gear, unzip the duffel or dry bag and hunt in your ultralight Batwing setup.
  • If you like the organization and function of a backpack, the Little Big Top is the ideal choice for a 2-5 day trip. Allows for top-loading or front-loading access and use the Mainframe when it is time for some heavy lifting.

EXPEDITIONARY SETUPS

  • The Big Top is ideal for those who want to get out and stay out for extended 5-10 backcountry stays.
  • For a 5-10 hunt, use the Dry Bag and Little Big Top. Pack all of your gear into the backcountry and when you reach camp and drop your gear, unzip the dry back and hunt in your compact Little Big Top setup.

F1 Mainframe

This frame is freakin sweet just by itself! It’s more freakin sweet that you can attach a pack to it too. I have the F7 kite. I think it’s a great set up. Perfect for hauling out meat or sheds. Enough room in the pack for all my gear and more.

F1 tall mainframe

I like the extra height of the pack. It is comfortable and transfers weight to hips very well. Straps are comfy, and the modularity lets you set it up any way you want. 2 Batwings and a small scabbard was all I needed for my deer hunt-light and easy!

This is my second F1 Mainframe

I bought my first F1 about 5-6 years ago. Other than some wear and tear from the abrasive rocks on the mountain I hunt, its still fully operational, even the zipper still works. My son started hunting with me now that he's old enough and last season I ended up surrendering my F1 for him to use. It adjusted down to his torso really well and he was no longer sore from his other pack.
Now he has his own brand new one and I have old faithful once again
