The Gossamer frame is designed to complement our packs that have the Intex II tubular frame. The interchangeability of these two frame types fulfills the Intex II modular concept. The basic design of packs equipped with the Intex II is intended to take advantage of the frames superior support, comfort, and load-bearing interface with the human body. But there are times when you may want a flatter or more compressible pack, or a more flexible overall structure, and it is for these reasons that we've developed the Gossamer. Made of polycarbonate with vertical-axis stiffening channels, the Gossamer gives an ideal mix of vertical support and torsional flex. It is quite tough and is superior to polyethylene frame-sheets which form the core structure of most internal frame packs. Thus, the Gossamer is a simple and high-performance means to convert your Intex-II equipped pack to a more traditional internal frame pack.

Gossamer G-Type AG2L-Long on British PLCE Long-Back Ruck

I bought a used British PLCE Long-Back ruck that came with no frame. The Gossamer G-Type AG2L-Long fits the ruck perfectly! The PLCE belt sits higher than a lot of American-made packs I've worm (ALICE, ILBE, Mystery Ranch) and the Gossamer makes the load really easy. it holds strong around the higher belt, and flexes a lot of the pack away from the back to create some airflow. Longest hike so far was six miles with eighty pounds, and the Gossamer was perfect.

Excellent Internal Frame. Outstanding Back Support!

I'm a conflict photographer, and added this to my Eberlestock Little Brother pack. This internal frame slides right into the zippered pouch that is normally used for a rifle case. It radically stabilizes the pack, provides outstanding back support, and only adds 10 ounces to the pack! I live out of my Little Brother pack when on assignment to the soup sandwich, and this internal frame is like having a little piece of Heaven on your back! Highly recommend!

Works for other brands!

I purchased this for a different brand of hiking pack. Works great! As long as you measure the width and it fits, you can trim the length/round the corners with a sander to make it work. Great design!

Works as well as expected

This frame does its job, and does it well. Fairly light, and has the right balance of flex and rigidity. Very pleased with it.

Wish I purchased with pack

I bought the little brother pack about a month ago. Should have bought this frame with it. Gives more stability &structure. Well worth the money.

Gossamer G-Type Frame Large on the Little Brother Pack

Fitment is great extremely light weight. It says 10oz but it feels more like 4oz. Just the right amount of torsional twist but still ridgid. Should have bought one a long time ago.

Gossamer frame

I used the large frame for a G1 little brother. Makes the bag so much more comfortable to carry when it’s loaded down heavy. Definitely recommend
