Gossamer G-Type Frame
Weight: 10 oz
The Gossamer Frame is a simple and high-performance means to convert your Intex-II equipped pack to a more traditional internal frame pack. It was designed to complement Eberlestock packs that have the Intex II tubular frame. Once you're equipped with a Gossamer, you'll be able to switch your pack back and forth depending on your needs at any time. 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 frame's 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 that is why Eberlestock 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. The Gossamer comes in two sizes: choose the AG2S for our slightly shorter packs or the AG2L for our longer packs.
Shipping Dimensional Weight = 7 lbs. (due to the requirement for a long carton).
