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.
Once you're equipped with a Gossamer, you'll be able to switch your pack back and forth, selecting a style that best meets the needs of the day. The Gossamer comes in two sizes: choose the AG2S for our slightly shorter packs (the G2), or the AG2L for our longer packs (the G4).

Added this to my older generation Terminator pack. The pack suspension was curving when compressed. This frame solved the problem completely and made the pack way more comfortable when it is loaded heavy. I highly recommend it for any pack that does not already have one. I guess that is why they have switched to using it in so many of their packs.
Bought this so i can load up my G1. Arrived in a timely manner. Dropped into pack, then took the belt from my Skycrane. Perfect lighter backpack configuration. Quality as always. Highly recommend it.
Simple and elegant solution to easily add to one of their already excellent packs. Exactly as you'd expect from the Eberlestock team.
Changed out the intex2 to the gossamer in my gunslinger 2 pack. For my stature this allows me to carry more weight more comfortably! The intex was ok but the gossamer is dramatically more fitting and comfortable for me and for the curvature of my back. I wish I had tried this out a long time ago, it’s awesome!! Try the gossamer, it may help you too!!!
🇱🇷 MAGA!!! Thanks
