Here's a bag older than some members here, but not as old as Ricky's. When Marmot was based in Grand Junction and not California. It slid off (and outlasted) many a Thermarest.

I have a few vintage mountaineering clothes and gear. Almost all of it from WWII. Here is a LL Bean Labrador Parka. No date on it. So, I have no idea when it was made. I think is was made in the 1940s?
