The extra. Padding on the waist belt and the harness really opens up the potential when the frame is changed out to the long frame. I'm sure. . I can almost guarantee that covers the broad spectrum of packs . Dint get me wrong. This company makes products that perform as expected. The thin Molle straps might save weight but I would take a firmly secured attachment with a little extra weight over a floppy attachment that pulls on the straps instead of distribution of the weight of the attachment spread out evenly and equally less shifting . Great upgrade for the g2 slinger.
For some reason the straight frame in my G2 Gunslinger II rubbed my backside no matter how I adjusted the pack. Switched to this frame and I’m comfy for the long haul.
Above and Beyond my request! I received my product fast and it arrived with no issues! Thank you Eberlestock
The frame allowed me to jury rig the pack to make it fit my 6'2"body. I had used the frameless Gunslinger for over five years with minimal comfort. I believe it is suitable for someone under 5'10." I am glad I made the decision to purchase the frame rather than discard it and try another brand, In other words, the frame saved the Gunslinger!"
I bought it to attach the ButtBucket to, and it works as intended.
Switched out the frame on my gunslinger pack, to use for heavier carries, would recommend to anyone looking for a different curve, it fit my back perfectly.
Provides great support and structure to my G2 Gunslinger II for loading and while carrying. Also makes for a great anchor point for attaching gear externally underneath the main compartment, such as a backpacking tent.
