In January, I published a post titled Backpacking Gear from 1975: A Time Capsule. Here’s a collection of more wonderful gear and advertisements from that golden era of backpacking gear. I get a hoot from looking at these old-time advertisements. Funny how some things are so different and some things have stayed the same.
I love the Water Walker and Packraft advertisement below, but you have to admit that the idea of Barefoot Boots is pretty original too!
Do you have a favorite?
