This is for the over 50 crowd - 7.62 - 05-14-2019

If you were into hiking,back packing and climbing in the 70's. You will remember Wilderness Experience,they made packs and stuff. Well,do you remember the klettersack. It was a day pack size made for the most part for climbers. It was a very popular pack,people are still using some of the old ones from the 70's. Well,one of the former owners of Wilderness Experience got back the rights to the original klettersack,and he has a kick starter going on right now. They will be using the original design and the same materials as the 70's pack. And it's not a bad deal for a high end day pack,75.00. Some of you old farts may be interested in this.

They look good but people stopped buying them because other sacks appeared that were better.
I would buy one, but they are not worth $75 - and I do not have sideburns anymore.

They do seem like a good pack! 75$ aint bad for this day in age....

the guy with the sideburns climbing the mountain on the kickstarter page looks suspiciously like our resident "rat bastahd" FROM 1970... but I thought he only liked kelty external frames Wink so it musn't be him!

75.00 is a very good price,when you look at the materials they are using. I am getting one because it takes me back to those much simpler days in the 70's. I would go back to those day's in a heart beat.

Yes I am back in Sin City sat comatose, staring over a bottle of beer at half naked Go Go girls waggling their bums at me!
I have been gripped by sin and alcohol, but am now recovered enough to take an interest in the forum again.

Yes 7.62,  I miss the flowered shirts, and yet here in the tropics, my shirts are  just as gaudy as there were back in the 70s.
