On numerous occasions Google Books has been an indispensable resource for hard to find materials that I was dying to see. One such treasure was searching for and happening upon issues of Backpacker magazine from the 1970s. The first few years of this publication are worth a scroll through to see advertisements from now iconic companies like The North Face, Patagonia and Eddie Bauer in a fledgling hiking magazine. The vintage gear from these brands and many smaller mail-order companies is certainly the highlight and this collection of copies online is incredibly generous.
