ORE #2 Snow Peak

Snow Peak, Single ActionLet me preface this post by reminding everyone that some of these finds at the Outdoor Retailers Expo do not fit in the affordable genre. This is one of those. Snow Peak has apparently been making camping accessories since 1958, why I have never heard of them before is a mystery. They make some of the most beautiful stuff I have ever seen. Take for example the Single Action Table shown. Made of .6" thick plywood and aluminum legs it is a truly beautiful table. What the picture (and their website) fails to show is the way it opens and closes in one smooth action. It's one of those things you just have to see to get how cool it is. The price is $224, which is a little rich for my blood. Make sure you check out the stacking cups on their website too. Expensive, but very nice. All their stuff had a pretty Asian style to it. Simple and sweet.

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
