The Joe Brown was one of the classic packs from the Karrimor range. It was produced , in different versions, for 25 years. It started off as a single pack designed for the infamous Welsh climber Joe Brown. the original Joe Brown pack was canvas with a plywood frame.....it was also rather short as Joe was vertically challenged.
This version is from the late 70's-early 80's. volume is around 55-60 liters. As it's a fairly big pack . While the volume is big, the pack is low so you can still have room to wear a helmet, preferably a Joe Brown, while climbing and not have it restricted by the pack height.
