They turned into Abcom. . . I have no idea if they're still around. I have outdoor stuff from when they were BMW and a bomber computer case (originally bought for a Mac PowerBook 170) from when they were Abcom. . . and all of that stuff is still in use. . . and it's all at least 20 years old.
There have been some really great and well-crafted stuff made by gifted individuals from small shops over the years. That would make for an interesting thread. Anybody still have the old Strawberry Mountain Works swamis or chalk bags? Those were the shiz BITD.
Rivendell Mountain Works is back. Bought a new Jensen pack a little while back. It's a finely crafted tool, sturdy as hell, and carries medium loads like a dream. Has minor modifications that stay completely true to Don Jensen's design and make it even better than my original Jensen pack. http://www.rivendellmountainworks.com/about-our-packs/jensen-packs/
