I have a couple of Madden packs that I bought directly from Madden in the late 1970's. One is the rucksack-sized Alpine, the other is a monster expedition sized pack.

They are both great, have stood up to years of hard use and poor care. Madden stuff tended to be bombproof, durable, simple, and maybe a little heavy -- just right for hard use.

Madden also made what has always seemed to me to be the best-designed Gore-tex mountain parka ever made. The 70's era Gore-tex is definitely not up to modern standards, but the parka design and workmanship are unbeatable.
