When we talk about the upper echelons of family-owned businesses, Snow Peak has to be part of the conversation. Founded in 1958, it began life as a passion project for accomplished mountaineer Yukio Yamai whose designs were informed by a life lived in Japan’s wild Niigata Prefecture.

Since the late ‘50s, Snow Peak has represented a higher level in style and quality in the outdoor gear arena, and, still run by the Yamai family, has no intention of changing any time soon.

While the outdoors remains a primary focus, more recent generations of the Yamai family have shaped the label to fit a more contemporary mold. Straddling lifestyle and performance is no easy feat, but thanks to cutting-edge design and a string of collaborations with labels like New Balance and Tokyo Design Studio, Snow Peak jackets, accessories, and even tents rank as highly with streetwear experts as they do with top-flight athletes and explorers.

To exhibit the true, wild diversity of Snow Peak, we put together some of our favorite camping pieces from the legendary label, from a lantern for late-night toilet trips to a waterproof jacket for the inevitable downpour.
