rated 5 of 5 stars I have an old Camptrails pack too. Not sure of the model but it is one of the larger ones. Purchased April 9, 1974 -- I still have the receipt. With a few trips to the shoemaker to sew in some Cordura, it is still usable. These packs are made of iron. To stay in shape, I put 50 lbs of free weights in it, raise my treadmill to 15 degrees, put a 5 lb weight on each ankle and cover a mile in about 18 minutes. The divide between the top and bottom compartments is still holding up. Full review

Adjustable II

rated 5 of 5 stars Camp Trails is the under-rated champion of solid, versatile backpacks. The Adjustable II lives up to the Camp Trails U.S.-made tradition of reliability and ruggedness. Two, 20"-long, zippered, vertical pouches on either side of the main compartment are ideal for fly and tent poles in one, tent body and pegs in the other. An extender bar is made (maybe hard to get, now?) so that you can lash your pad horizontally to it, over the main compartment. The main compartment is only a single space (no separator),… Full review
