The Transformer complements our F1 Mainframe pack. Its a lightweight, versatile pack that can stand alone or can be piggy-backed on the Mainframe. With a full-featured layout that includes both top and front access, and two full-depth side pockets, the Transformer is made to appeal to those who are looking for Eberlestock quality combined with stripped-down, minimalist weight savings -- while maintaining just enough functionality to stand as a great all-around pack.
When using the Transformer as a stand-alone pack, we recommend adding our AGIF "Endo" frame, which attaches to the interior back wall of the pack via small Velcro keeper-straps. You can also add one of our hip-belts, or use the one off of the Mainframe if you're using the packs as a set. This is a straightforward and versatile system with a unique and practical kind of modularity. You can build the pack that best suits your needs, or a system that allows you to pick-and-choose based on the demands of the moment, with each option providing a seamless functionality.

F2 Transformer Pack Product Overview
How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
I’m an Elk hunter and hard in gear. The back is bombproof, but design could be improved. The side pockets could be designed better. If you fill them up, it decreases interior space, which doesn’t help if you’re doing anything other than a day trip. The buckles on the side are worthless if using the mainframe and transformer combined. You end up with 6 female buckles ON EACH SIDE of the pack! It could be an easy fix.
I bought the main frame and the transformer to be able to backpack hunt. After a few hikes I feel the pack needs improvement. First if you want to use the main frame to haul meat there is no way to reattach the transformer. Simple fix but who really wants to have to cut and sew on a 400 dollar setup. Next when combined they top the scale at 8.5 pounds that’s a little heavy in today’s pack world. Next with a light rain my pack was soaked. They need a built in rain cover. Last complaint I wore it without my shirt and the material the straps are made out of are extremely abrasive.
Great pack. Very sturdy. Very well made. I feel as though it needs one small zip pocket in the top or front compartment for small items like keys, wallets or sunglasses.
I bough this pack used, and was wondering if there is a rifle insert to hold it while walking?
Very good material, sewing and design
I use this pack with F1 mainframe while hunting, biking and hiking weekly
