Camp 7 Made Amazing Gear
When the 5th or 6th comment appeared on a Camp 7 story about how folks still love their gear 40+ years later, I thought I best pull them out into their own story. I'll try and keep this updated as comments roll in.
My husband has a Camp 7 jacket that still looks like new that he found 35 years ago in a chicken house. He washed it and has worn since!
Still have mine that I bought in '74 and wear it to work outside in the winter. Great coat and nothing beats it for warmth
I have my mother's 1978 Camp 7 sleeping bag. She used it to travel the world then, and between 2015 and now i have as well. Still works perfect and is in incredible condition given how hard it has been used over its lifetime. The stories it could tell.....
I just spent a weekend at Yosemite, comfortable in the 30 degree morning temperatures in the Camp 7 parka that I've had since 1979.
My wife and I bought our Camp 7 sleeping bags shortly after we were married in October of 1972. These bags are made incredibly well and both of our bags still look brand new. They bring back a lot of good memories when we did a lot of backpacking back in the day.
Mom bought a Camp 7 down parka in 1979 for a ski trip to Tahoe. I wore it all through college, '90-94. Just pulled it out for a trip up Mt Shasta. It's as good as it ever was - it may outlive me!
In 1976 I passed my Baccalauréat and my dad rewarded me with a Camp 7 down jacket in preparation for the summer in the Parc National des Ecrins! The jacket is still in good condition 42 years later!
