We're back once again, and with the clocks going back at the weekend and the weather taking a turn for the worse, it's perfect timing to introduce you all to the newest brand joining the Wellgosh family, Snow Peak.
We're really excited to bring yet another brand that specialises in high-quality outdoors clothing to the harsh conditions of Leicester High Street. But in all seriousness, Snow Peak is a brand that we are really happy to have in store, they've created some serious quality outdoors apparel, accessories and even camping gear - (To all the other outdoor stores in the city, eat your heart out.)
Created by Yukio Yamai in 1958, Snow Peak is named after Mount Tanigawa in Japan, which is renowned for both it's breathtaking peaks, but also for the amount of people that have failed to summit it. Yukio draws inspiration from this, and was fascinated with challenging himself both physically and mentally throughout his life. This fascination lead to Yukio utilising the high-quality metal processing technology in his hometown, Tsubame Sanjo, in order to create innovative, high quality mountaineering gear that is suitable for both the unforgiving terrains, and for a modern environment also.
We've selected a handful of our favourite products from Snow Peak, which are available both online and on the second floor in store at Wellgosh.
Kicking us off is the Flexible Insulated Cardigan, which reiterates the ethos of Snow Peak and the margins in which they design their products. Consisting of a lightweight, windproof polyester, with a synthetic fill, this cardigan is ideal for layering when it's cold out. The cardigan also features two angled up-down front pockets and a chest pocket, the sleeves are equipped with elasticated hems to keep the warmth locked in too.
The Co/Pe Crewneck Long Sleeve is ideal for layering. Available in three colours, the Co/Pe Crewneck is made using a cotton/polyester jersey that is cosy and crease-resistant. With a horizontal striped design and a single chest pocket, this price-point piece is a perfect intro to the brand.
The 2L Octa Jacket, which is available in maroon, is designed using an exclusive Octa® fabric. Octa fabric is a lightweight, breathable and stretchable material, this trifecta allows for a really effective quick-drying jacket should you get caught in an infamous British downpour. Polyester mesh lines the inside of the jacket, with a two-way zip placket, and four pockets with concealed openings give the jacket a great utility aspect - April Showers? Try us.
