I had been reading a post recently and saw that a chap was still using his Karrimor Totem Senior rucksack to this day. What a superb piece of kit it was with a very strong, lightweight aluminium frame.
The pack itself was only coated nylon but again it was strong and durable.
Great pockets and ease of access.
Lots of extra’s that we used to carry could be strapped to the frame when the sack had been filled.
Like 1/2 gallon of paraffin. Or a box stove.
I used mine for a long time and was sad to see it go, but it went to a good home.
No measuring weights in those day. Ha
Well here it is and that’s me on the left BTW.
Red was obviously the colour of the 6o’s and 70’s.
Anyone guess the mountain in the background?
No prizes unfortunately.
