What drives us to get outdoors? It’s an interesting question to ponder, and one that applies to everyone, whether you’re exploring the farthest corners of the globe or enjoying adventures close to home. Japanese brand Snow Peak believe that time outdoors with others restores the human spirit. We kinda like that philosophy. Which is probably why we like their products so much too. Minimalist, functional and built to last, their gear and apparel is meticulously designed, with a simple and distinctive elegance. Working with materials like stainless steel, cast iron and titanium, they utilise historic craftsmanship techniques passed down over generations in their home city of Niigata, Japan.
The result is a collection of beautifully made bits of kit that all work seamlessly together. And when you’re trying to cut bulk and weight on the trail, being able to stow your cooking system neatly is a satisfying thing. It’s the kind of well-thought-out design detail we appreciate, and which has become a Snow Peak hallmark.
