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.

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 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.
