High Style Camping Gear from Japan

Justin Hulong August 02, 2012

We've written (and raved) about Japanese lifestyle company Snow Peak before. Founded in 1958 by Japanese mountaineer, Yukio Yamai, the company has made a name for itself by making beautiful things for use in the outdoors.

Their line of high quality, well-designed camping goods are so aesthetically pleasing that you can use them both while exploring the great outdoors and at home. The company recently opened up a new store in Portland. We met up with Snow Peak's Joey Tuma to get his take on what products we should keep an eye on. He gave us a list of some Snow Peak classics and a few new products that the line has recently launched in the US. "Camping doesn't have to be about roughing it, " he said. "Being outdoors is about living well and eating well."

We couldn't agree more.
