    Default Japan Camping Style Fashion

    Spent 1/2 the morning coffee time looking through pages of this blog.

    https://www.thegoout.com

    Maybe because I live in layers of clothing (currently mostly SWRVE) these days I identify with something like this:



    Fan of Mountain Research too.

    Post Overalls



    Natal Design



    Short arms in most sizes though not all so have to parse info.

    Great! Now youíve pulled me into it.

    Not a fashionable person myself, but I did note that Arcteryx + Jil Sander gear is mentioned. Thatís what Michelle Parker is wearing this season, and she makes it look great:

    Just go straight to snowpeak.
    https://snowpeak.co.uk/

    This company has been around for a while, and I always used their titanium pans while camping.
    The founder's granddaughter is behind the push into apparel. Not really an outdoor company, more a Forest bathing harajuku meets the great outdoors. (or look good while car camping and having a barbecue.).

    Some of the styles are pretty fun. Some are really quite traditional japanese too. A little hard to pull off if you are not japanese and not in japan.

    The tried and true military poncho liner, aka the Woobie Jacket…military jackets/boots/bags always seem to serve as idea starters for outdoor gear designers throughout the world.

    There is an Arcteryx shop in Soho NYC that has their experimental line in the back. Way too cool for me, but it is interesting to see what's in development.

    I got a Snow Peak GigaPower stove to make coffee in the garage. Fits in its own titanium pot. Their stuff is really great.

    I haven't seen their clothing in person, but I'd wear this parka. I'm always on the search for things with good pockets, and the Japanese designers really like pockets.

    The Japanese designers get really great feeling fabrics and put together garments with meticulous stitches. It is really a tactile focus on clothing. Simple design with clever "adjustments" from tradition. These are from Nepenthes.

    They have a US retail store on Crosby St in Soho. Next time you are in NYC, you should swing by.

    The stores are a bit quirky.

    The place you'd really love is this new Japanese-Nordic shop in London.

    Amazing. I think the Japanese love of Scandinavia is hilarious but also I can see the affinity. We stumbled on an area of Hokkaido where a television show was shot at one point - "Life in the Country" or "Country Life" something like that. The area was described as very Norwegian. I mean, there were a few stands of spruce trees but seemed like a bit of wishful thinking? However the noodle shop in the tiny nearby town had the best noodles I've ever eaten.



    Snow Peak has these sweaters that are knitted from baby alpaca wool. The wool equivalent of magic.



    And stoves that fit into table frames for deluxe outdoor kitchens. Because you know, these are the necessities right?

    I bought the collapsible Snowpeak fire pit (and grill grate) during the beginning of covid and man I love that thing.
    One day if Iím ever feeling particularly flush I might just buy all the addons and accessories that go with it.

    We saw this bike on our cycling trip around Daisetsuzan National Park in Hokkaido. The rider looked like a piece of twisted leather. He had a titanium cup that he clipped to his handlebars. Great trip. I'd love to go back and do some bike camping.
