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.

Order A G1 Litlle Brother and was a little let down with the stiffness of the bag. Ordered this bad boy and let me tell you……. Game changer!!!! Slides right into the scabbard section of the bad and POOF…. A whole new bag. Distributes the weight perfectly. Make sure you get the LONG for the little brother!!!!

Required for G1 Little Brother

I ordered the G1 little brother as part of a larger Warhammer + G1 ruck system and I find that when I pull the G1 out of the Warhammer the G1 on its own was very uncomfortable due to a lack of any frame. A fellow Eberlestock fan mentioned this frame, so I added it to the G1 and WOW what a difference. The lumbar contour form fits to my slightly smaller than average frame just fine. It is also very light, and was unnoticed from a weight perspective after adding it to the pack. The one downside is the frame takes up the scabbard channel but to Eberlestocks credit, I don't think the addition of the frame would keep you from adding in a scabbard. It's priced right, does what it needs to do, & doesn't really sacrifice anything for what you gain.

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.
