I didn’t check every page of the results (just first and last) but it looks like Backpacker Magazine has full versions of their issues available online for free between Autumn of 1973 to November 2009. Sure the gear reviews may be a bit dated but I'm betting there's loads of cool photos and articles buried in there.

Awesome find, thanks mike.

 

Already found an wilderness first aid guide in the first issue I opened! Perfect. (Nov 2009, p30)

 

Anyone know a way to read this on a mobile device easily?
