Great little assault pack when stand alone but also a great supplement to the war hammer pack I use them all together as a ruck that I am very happy with.
I paired the little brother pack with a F1 frame and two bat wings. I wish it secured to the frame better but i made it work. I am a travel nurse and i put 6 sets of scrubs, caps, skivvies, and socks in. Batwings hold four rolled up towels. Top bag holds athletic socks for the gym. I’m using a top lid for gym clothes.
Little Brother is a great multipurpose bag, I managed to attach "Batwing" to it with the help of Eberlestock. Many thanks.
I recommend it for your trekking outings accompanied by these 3 Liter Hydration.
Have used it daily for a few weeks now and for myself it's the perfect 72hr pack.
Great pack with lots of room and MOLLE webbing inside and outside.
Eberlestock stock makes some high quality packs. This is the 2nd pack
I purchased 1st bandit. That's why I give this pack 4 star. I hoped the little brother had the same top pouch/clamore pouch as the bandit. Would have been a 5. There no padding which would make the pack stiffer. Will be purchasing the big trick next.
I like the pack. Quality / construction is top notch. Design needs a little work.
First, stand-alone it should have an admin pocket for organization similar to "those other guys'" Rush series. I carry a spare knife with a clip, flashlights with clips, pens, etc. Having little pockets / sleeves within a pocket would be a useful improvement.
Second, when I attach the Little Brother to my F1 Mainframe with the zippers, the fit is too tight, the Little Brother can't be used to carry anything, it has to be hauled empty. I can use the buckles to attach the Little Brother but then it flops around, moves, and makes noise like the Mystery Ranch Pop Up 28 that I was trying to replace with this pack.
So .. good, but you have a ways to go to reach perfection.
I chose this over a few others out there in its size range due to the abundance of webbing, relative lightness as advertised, and the modular possibilities, which should allow some adapting it for different tasks and trips. After having it for a few weeks and taking it on some trial runs, this will work out well as I had hoped. The fit is good, though not super adjustable (for reference I am 6'2" and 215lbs) and the pack is light for how durable it is. The comfort level is excellent over the moderate distances that I have covered so far - and I can tell that it will work just as well for the much longer ones I have coming up this summer. I currently run fairly light loads in it, not more than 35lbs, and the pack as is works great. I would definitely add one of the two frame options to it if I went any heavier, though the pack body itself would have no problem. All in all an excellent pack and a super value for the price.
Pros- Size is just right for what I need.
Zippers and Pulls are fantastic. The new design for the panel door is perfect.
The laser cut panel and Molle 10 seem to be strong enough to hold, so the weight saving is a great touch.
Cons- Should come with hip belt and frame. I mean really, just increase the price and include it. If it's a question of the modularity factor, just add an omit tab, or have a separate section for bag only/EMOD.
Water bottle pockets need a slot to route the compression straps underneath as an option.
And finally, why does the Switchblade have 9 ladders of adjustment and the Little brother have none? That's ridiculous. Thought about sending it back, but the good outweigh the bad, so I'm going to put it to the test. If it doesn't measure up, ill sell it and start over.
I like their packs I own 3 different ones. If your and an experienced backpacker you know framed packs make it a lot easier on your body try it you will love it. First, I own the F1 MAINFRAME is ideal for hunting, when you are deep in the wood and you need a way to haul your deer or other large animals out of the woods. Second is the WARHAMMER a great 3-day standalone pack with lots of storage that uses two large tubes(Bat wing). The third one I own is a LITTLE BROTHER also a 3-day pack. But the best thing is you can combine the Warhammer and the Little Brother packs to make an extremely large pack that you can haul huge loads of gear. If you saw a military pack hauling over 100 pounds this combination can do that (But I recommend you never carry suck weight unless you trained very hard and are in great shape). What I enjoy is the durability and ruggedness of these packs. They are ready to go when you are: Great for rucking for a day or a week, hunting in the wild, or if you’re a prepper that needs that alone time in the woods, or you’re a young mom needing to carry things for two kids and a baby going, visit grandma. I recommend you visit their site watch their very informative videos and see what will fit your needs. Please pack responsibly and clean up after yourselves on the trail. To be in shape physically (doctor approved) rucking is fun but can be taxing and requires great hydration.
