Purchased my Wilderness Experience Klettersack in 1975-1977? in Chico, California, where they had a cottage industry. I took this-below-picture this morning 6-26-2013: 35 plus years later and it is still going. It is used regularly still, and it has carried books through 9 college campuses over all those years. It was and still is a great product. It could use new shoulder straps but it still is functional the way it is! Michael Cudak Full review
Very good bag. Zipper, loft, and velcro all are in excellent shape. I just spent three days in the Ozarks, temp in the low 30s and all was good. The bag was bought at a garage sale by my wife. Any additional info about "Wilderness Expereince" I would like to hear from you. Full review

This is simply the most comfortable pack midsize pack I have ever owned. Over the years I have owned… Full review
Overall this bag has done very well. It was found in Alaska and brought to Arizona. I have used it when my tent was buried in snow and have used it (unzipped) in 100F temperature. I love this bag. Full review
Wilderness Experience became part of Dana Design in the late 1980s.
