GG Air Beam Pack Frame
- Product Review (submitted on May 3, 2013):
I was a hardcore skeptic. Thought this looked like a cool gimick that would never perform on the trail. Boy was I wrong. After getting a flare-up of a bulging disk in my upper back I was really concerned about my next trip. So after speaking with Gage at GG I decided to go for it and use the Air Beam with my new GG Gorilla.
I removed the aluminum pack stay and the waffle pad and used the Air Beam exclusively on a 25 mile trek. What comfort! So much better than the support of a traditional (heavy) backboard!
Take the bulb pump with you--you'll be glad you did. Gives you the opportunity to adjust for comfort, although my preference is almost fully inflated.
Don't be a skeptic. The Air Beam is awesome and it really works!
