We had one of our favourite customers in the other day, just finishing off his shopping list for Kilimanjiro. He walked in with the bag below, which stirred all kinds of memories of my first rucksack (a Karrimor in case you hadn’t guessed!)
It also brought back memories of the old rucksacks they used to keep in their London store, from all the first expeditions to places they have supported over the years. I hope when Karrimor was sold, somebody has kept them safe and sound somewhere. It has made me nostalgic for the days when you could pretty much recommend any Karrimor rucksack, and it would be a good ‘un. If anyone else can remember what your favourite / first rucksack you ever had was, please post up in the comments below! All I can remember is that mine was 55 Litres, a lovely red, and my back will not forget carrying it – that’s for sure….
