A Trip Down Memory Lane

Recommended Posts

A quick question. Back in the late 70's early 80's the BSA Scout Shops sold a brand of backpack called High Country. I was wondering whatever happened to that brand of pack or was it another brand of pack and the BSA put their brand/name (High Country) on it. At the time I was in Boy Scouts I sure wanted one of those but had to settle for something else. Just a little curious. Thanks in advance.

I had one, purchased in 1971 and it sucked. Broke apart often and was a waste of money. I quickly moved, at my Aunts suggestion, to Kelty. Have been a loyal Kelty fan ever since buying my first Kelty in 1973. My wife bought a High Country in the early 80's and used it for several camping trips and overnighters. We still have it down in the barn with the other camping gear; it only sees the light of day if it's blocking a piece of equipment that's fallen behind the High Country....or a really, really desperate Scout needs a pack for a weekend....
