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.
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
Great option to stiffen G-1
Wish I bought this a long time ago. The G1 is big enough to hold a ton of weight, then removable frame is perfect.
Bought this frame for my G1 little brother pack, and it definetly makes a difference in the stability of the pack. Only downside to the frame is that if you want to integrate your g1 little brother pack with other modular systems like the J51 warhammer or the F1 mainframe, you pretty much have to take the frame out every time to get stuff to fit properly.
Very cool stuff.
bought this to put in the g1 little brother and it makes a world of difference. Currently run the g1 with the mainframe with 3 outdoor research compressible dry sacks between the two. Couldnt be happier with the current set up for backpacking in michigan. Cant wait to test it out in the fall for deer season. Always impressed with eberlestock products!
One of four excellent products I purchased to get me back outdoors. Everything I needed in one place with awesome Customer Service!
I’m not the type of guy that carries a backpack daily or even more than a couple times a month for trips and hiking. if you are that type of guy that does EDC a lot of stuff and doesn’t want to stand out as much, the gossamer frame sheet is a must. Definitely makes the bag stand out a lot less with no/minimal rigidity loss. I don’t see myself putting the aluminum back in unless I’m carrying a very heavy load. Most likely I would do that in my G4 anyway. Long story short, if you don’t want the bag to stand out as much, Especially if you have the scabbard folded, I personally would get the frame sheet.
So dumb questions. I have the G4 operator pack. It came with the intex2 aluminum frame and also came with tje gossamer frame. So here is the dumb question, they are ment to be use separately correct not together at same time? In the description it says the gossamer complements the intex2. But that doesnt mean together correct?
