Looking for a decent free FTP Client for Mac

I'm looking for a free, preferably dual panel FTP client for Mac, that has tar capabilities. It must also be able to accept a private key instead of a password for sftp connections.

Commander One seems to meet my needs, but at $30 I would rather not.

I'm currently using FileZilla to view and download and terminal to tar, but I'm lazy and want to right click to zip things. On Windows I was using WinSCP, so I'm looking for something similar for mac.

I tried cyberduck, but it will not accept my private key for some unknown reason, which makes it useless for my needs.
