When the Klymit team decided to make a universal Air Beam pack frame, we knew that we would want to team up with the most innovative leaders in the backpacking world. Gossamer Gear is one of those companies that continues to impress us with their revolutionary take on lightweight packs. Because of their commitment to providing customers with the best of the best, we wanted to manufacture an Air Beam pack frame that would enhance their specific backpacks. Although our logo is on the framesheet, Gossamer Gear has seamlessly and effectively integrated it into their sales efforts.
We are excited to see what lies ahead for the future of Gossamer Gear and how the Air Beam changes the way their customers experience lightweight backpacking.
From the ‘Featured Product’ section of the Gossamer Gear website:
The Gossamer Gear Air Beam Pack Frame is a removable, adjustable, inflatable pack frame that will fit in any Gossamer gear pack. Add the Air Beam to your Kumo or Murmur pack and get a light weight frame that can also be used as a sit pad (on appropriate ground) or rolled up and partially deflated to make a pillow. The airbeam will also work with our framed packs but you may want to remove the frame first to save the weight. The firmness of the pad is adjusted using the attached inflator bulb and can be done on the fly. The Air Beam Pad comes in three sizes L-M-S. The pad size corresponds with the size of your pack. Each pad comes with a repair kit and the attached but removable inflator bulb and connecting tube. The weights and size info can be found in the SPECS section of this page.

Did we mention that the Gossamer Gear guys came to visit us during Outdoor Retailer this year? Well, they did and it was a blast. We had a great time giving them a tour of HQ and showing off all of our new products for 2013. You can read their version of the visit here.
