Purchased for my son's Big Brother pack, stiffens the pack substantially and is very lightweight. He is current active army and is using on his rucks, loves it!
I added this to my little brother pack and it made a big difference. It was tight putting it into the scabbard tunnel.
I purchased this for my little brother bag that is part of my war hammer bag. It has made a huge difference. Makes it rigid enough to stand up. Lightweight yet sturdy.
Fit is good, adds stability to the little brother pack.highly recommend
I misread the question and answers regarding the product and after receiving the frame found out it didnt fit my switchback pack. Totally my fault. However, I used it in another (cheap) pack successfully and it seems to work well. It is a nice light weight addition to provide some rigidity to a pack without a frame.
I’m my opinion the bag can work fine without it - but I did want something with a bit more stability. Some might find the lack of structure in the lil’ brother a design flaw.
Anyway, this is a cheap, light, and effective solution to resolving the structure issue.
Loved the lil’ brother before. Love it even more now.
I ordered this form my G1 Little Brother and it works well! Super easy to install and remove plus the weight is very low.
Very supportive and extremely comfortable!
There is a nice, tight fit and it certainly does add some support for a heavier load. The shape works best with the belt. It is a must if you wish to use is without the F1 mainframe and can be left in even when the pack is attached to the frame.
Is it compatible with the little big top? Would I need to remove the plastic frame sheet or leave it installed?
