Outdoor experts Snow Peak are known worldwide for their superlative camping gear and accessories. And while the Japanese outfit now offer a wide range of specialist gear, they originally came from humble beginnings.
Who Founded Snow Peak?
Snow Peak was founded in the shadow of Mt. Tanigawa, where a young Japanese man, Yukio Yamai, repeatedly challenged himself to climb the dangerous and rocky terrain it offered. Yamai grew discontent with the climbing gear that he possessed and so he set off to make his own equipment, creating the brand that would soon become Snow Peak. With an array of expertise and the fine craftsman of Tsubame-Sanjo at his expense, he began to remake and remaster camping and climbing gear into the fine pieces of gear that Snow Peak sell today.
Why is Snow Peak so successful?
Snow Peak’s success can be directly attributed to the brand’s ability to create functional, durable and high quality pieces. Utilising the finest materials such as titanium and aluminium, and combining that with the quality and care of local Japanese workers, Snow Peaks gear leads the industry by some distance when it comes to premium outdoor accessories and apparel.
