I was wondering if anyone had ever tried making a frame sheet in an Aeronaut 45. I find my bag sags at the point where the lower backpack straps attach and i get a big roll going on there.
I was thinking of making a hard plastic frame sheet and fitting in the area where the backpack straps are stowed. Have you ever done this and if so did it fix the problem?

It has been mentioned here a couple of times but as far as I know no one has done it. Since the foam back padding is removable there must be a place one could tuck in a frame sheet. Please post back here if you try it!

As it is the second largest TB backpack, I really hope a future update of the A45 includes at least the option of a frame sheet, and a hip belt attachment point.

I don't know if this manufacturer would do one to Aeronaut specs, but I had looked into one of these kydex framesheets for a GR Echo.

Reviving this thread. I just joined the world of TB with a A45, Pilot, and DLBP (well and SE). So far, amazing (of course!). I really appreciate all the insight from this forum, so now I'll try to give a bit back!


I fitted a framesheet w/aluminum stays for my A45, but I haven't had an excuse to really try it out yet. I had an Aston Framesheet from Hill People Gear (https://www.hillpeoplegear.com/Products/CategoryID/6/ProductID/62) and a pair of scissors. On the bottom, I trimmed the left and right corners to look more like the bottom of the A45, slid it into the foam-pocket, then drew/scratched a rough shape of the overhang into the extra HDPE. After that, I slid it out and trimmed it off. Now it fits with the foam in place and feels pretty good!


Anyway, it's a super easy way to put a framesheet in. The only concern I have is the HDPE edges may wear down the Halcyon. I will probably wrap the edges in duct tape. If anyone has any better ideas, I'd love to hear them!

There are internal frames coming soon for the A45 and A30. Here is what Darcy had to say about them: "We've already designed optional internal frames for both the Aeronaut 45 and the Aeronaut 30. They are scheduled to debut early this year."

It's the spoiler in post #145 of this thread: https://forums.tombihn.com/general-bag-discussion/13085-2018-wish-list-10.html#post154894

So stay tuned and keep an eye out on the forum for an update when they will debut.

That's even better -- I'm looking forward to picking one up when they appear.

Thanks!
