I am now all beat up - smashed knee n back, dodgy kidneys & heart - life!
But back in the day I was always in the mountains
I have spent a lot on mountaineering kit - the older I got the less capable I was but the better my climbing stash
In the late 1970's & early 1980's Karrimor reigned supreme in the UK.
I always wanted one, but in those days could afford only a cheaper version - my external frame sac was Orange Nylon, quite the thing then :)
Here is a famous Rucksack by Karrimor, that was v.expensive in its day;
I bought it recently NOS, tags still in place, for a few quid.
Pretty useless to me now, and technologically superseded 30years ago, but still EPIC
show us your bit of kit and maybe a tale with it
