From 1962 until about 1967, the A16 logo was primarily a ever changing series of stylized lettering comprised just of "Adventure 16" or "A16." Sometime in the late 60's the artwork depicted on this sticker was turned into an embroidered patch that was sewn onto various products the company was making. Primarily custom backpacks. At that time you could drop into Andy Drollinger's factory garage on Primrose Drive in La Mesa, and then later in the Quonset Hut in nearby Santee, Calif to be measured for a frame, and to pick out the color and capacity of the pack bag you wanted. No matter what day you ordered your "Custom" A16 Pack, it would be ready for you to pick up "a week from Thursday." Why Thursday? That day was picked so that you would have time to get it packed and head for the hills a week from Friday. You could also request an add-on like an extra pocket or straps. Once a tail was added to a pack that was made from a fabric pattern that looked like a leopard. I'll bet that stopped a few hikers in their tracks.
