Today is a long awaited day for many of us at Klymit and Granite Gear. We just announced the creation of the Klymit Air Beam, after hours of hard work, collaboration and brain storming. The Air Beam is a pack frame that will replace the standard die-cut HDPE frame that comes in the Granite Gear Vapor Current packs.
The Klymit Air Beam offers a variety of advantages over regular frame sheets. It is lighter due to the use of pressurized air, stiffer, more comfortable, allows freedom of movement, increased adjustability and optimal load transfer. At only ¾ of an inch thick, the Klymit Air Beam keeps the load close to the user’s back for a direct transfer of weight to the hips.
We are excited to release this product on the market this fall with Granite Gear and look forward to more collaborations with the company.
