Remember back when Abercrombie & Fitch were a proper, old-time outdoorsman's outfitter? Neither do we, but judging from this catalog, they apparently once were.
This is the gear taken into the wilderness by the likes of Horace Kephart and Warren Miller - well thought-out equipment made to last at a time before Ford's "planned obsolescence" had become a business imperative for outdoors gear manufacturers.
This historic catalog is a perfect reprint of the original 1916 edition of Abercrombie & Fitch Co.'s "Outfitting Catalogue". It's perfect for anyone who laments the passing of canvas and leather in today's outdoor equipment types. It covers everything from tents to rucksacks, to firearms, to fishing gear to outdoor and foul weather clothing.
Bushcraft enthusiasts, fans of Wescott's "Camping in the Old Style" and of the "Woodsmoke" get-togethers as well as reenactors will enjoy this 160-plus page catalog.
