Goonies Pack from John's Closet

A Conversation 12/10/2015

John Bouman:

I just found a North Face Pack in the closet. I remember that Ki Pong told me it was the same one that The North Face made for the Goonies movie, (1985), she said that they only made a few of them that they sent most of them to Hollywood and she got to keep one. Does anyone remember this???

Martin Zemits:

Hi John! 

I designed the pack according to the specs I was given and Ki Pong made it. Large o-rings were added to the shoulder straps on the pack that was used in the film.

I never believed the pack would actually be seen in the film. The pack seems so large for the little actor.

John Bouman:

I just found these photos..
