The first North American retail store for the Japanese outdoor supplier, Portland's Snow Peak shop was welcomed with open arms earlier this year. Located in the city's most affluent neighborhood—NW—the shop is nestled amongst many art galleries, restaurants and boutiques. A favorite of CH for many years running, the conscious brand is one not to overlook. From high performance titanium camping furniture to beautifully designed utensils and cook wear, the spacious shop offers enough to outfit even the most adventurous design-minded outdoorsman. In addition, to help such a bold statement hold its weight, the shop has teamed up with fellow Portland-based Nau—maker of environmentally-minded outdoor clothing—as well as like-minded brands like Colorado's Zeal Optics, Sweden's Fjällräven, San Francisco's Aether and France's Dieme boots. This store and its fine-tuned contents signal the coming of Portland's new generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
