Snow Peak started its life as a function-focused outdoor brand, introducing some of the genre’s most lauded garments, accessories, and styles. Over time, however, the brand transitioned into a new branch of being, pairing that function with an equitable amount of form. The outfit’s most recent release, a multi-part bag collection dubbed the X-Pac Bag Series, is an illustration of its commitment to structured style.
Like many of Snow Peak’s transcendental designs, the X-Pac Bag Series pairs the minimalist nature of Japanese design with technical, utilitarian architecture. After realizing that the materials used in ultralight racing sails could, in fact, be utilized in other areas of industrial design, the brand tapped into the minds of the world’s foremost sailcloth makers to create this unique carry collection. Boasting a handful of laminated, waterproof layers, Snow Peak’s X-Pac Bag Series is comprised of three functionally-efficient offerings, including the large, UV-resistant Nylon Backpack, a technical, moisture-mediating Nylon Totebag, and a smaller, lightweight bucket bag known as the Nylon Kinchaku. Each example will boast 200 PSI waterproofing, highly-durable properties, and minimalist characteristics that provide a profound basis for Snow Peak’s unassuming collection. Head to the brand’s website, where you’ll be able to puck up the Kinchaku ($99), Totebag ($299), and Backpack ($355) for your next big adventure.
