    Old Hiking Kit

    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    Pretty useless to me now, and technologically superseded 30years ago, but still EPIC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

    No vintage hiking kit for me however it's a shame what happened to the Karrimor brand; used to be the bees knees now are pretty cheap

    Sorry to hear you're all beat up, but it sounds like you came by it honestly. Good memories.

    How old is the old in this thread

    I’m still wearing an older without pit zip Arcteryx Zeta AR jacket

    And I’m currently wearing 2 pairs of 4 years old Asics runners with Gore-tex that helped me finish my second Camino de Santiago

    congrats on the 2nd Camino - I have several friends who have done it - what was the overall fruit of the journey for you?

    Isn’t the foam in those trail runners gone by now?

    Way cool on the Camino!! I've got friends doing it right now and been keeping in touch with them. We were supposed to all go together but couldn't get it worked out. Was looking forward to it and very bummed we're not there.
