To that end, we thought this would be a perfect time to check in on the state of the camp cookware market. And when it comes to camping gear, you need look no further than Snow Peak. Founded in 1958, "founder Yukio Yamai, an accomplished mountaineer, created his own line of superior gear out of the dissatisfaction with available product." Today, Snow Peak offers high-quality camping gear designed with a notably pared down Japanese aesthetic. For more, visit Snow Peak.
