Snow Peak’s New Fire Resistant Outerwear Will Save You From Sparks

Winter is the season of campfires. Roasting marshmallows over a campfire in the crisp winter air is a magical experience that just can’t be recreated any other time of the year.

It can have its downsides, though, especially if you’re unlucky enough to get burned by a rogue spark. If you’ve ever been stung by the popping embers of a campfire and lost one of your favorite pairs of pants to the fiery fates, you need to check out the latest apparel collection from Snow Peak. The outdoor lifestyle brand has just dropped a new line that begs the question: How did no one think of creating a fully fire-resistant line of camp clothes before?! Seems like a no-brainer to us.

Snow Peak’s Fire Resistant garment series includes four new styles: the FR Down Pullover, the FR Down Jacket, the FR Rain Jacket, and the FR Rain Trench.

Each is designed with a four percent Aramid (the same fabric used in firefighting suits) shell and a special coating that won’t melt in the face of your next toasty campfire. In addition to their flame-retardancy, each new style is also water resistant and built for both comfort and functionality, with highly breathable materials and all the pocket space you would expect from any high-quality hiking gear.

You can also up the coziness factor of the Jacket and Pullover styles by opting for a 90 percent white goose down filling. Each style in the series is available in three colors: olive, black, and brown.

It’s no secret that we are at The Manual love spending quality time in the great outdoors, and as campfire enthusiasts, we tip our proverbial hat to Snow Peak for this clever new collection. The Snow Peak Fire Resistant garment series is available now from Snow Peak stores in Soho and Portland or on the brand’s official website, so be sure to snatch up your favorite style this campfire season.

The top 10 most expensive watches at the Met Gala
Ben Simmons wearing dress by Thom Browne departs for the 2024 Met Gala on a theme 'The Garden of Time' from The Pierre Hotel in New York on May 6, 2024.

The Met Gala serves up some of the most jaw-dropping looks on a silver platter (or in this case a red carpet) and this year's theme, the "Garden of Time" did not disappoint. Taking inspiration from J.G. Ballard's evocative 1962 short story, the imaginative theme was the perfect backdrop for celebrities to show off some of their most expensive watches.

The core of the theme was the passage of time, and the world's most famous faces seized the opportunity to break out some of their most extraordinary timepieces, ranging from classic to avant-garde designs. For those who see fashion as more than just pieces of fabric and jewelry as more than just an accessory, the watches at the 2024 Met Gala surely commanded attention.

With summer just around the corner, at least we hope, the days of sweaty skin and cold indulgences are so close we can taste it, and mint ice cream is an absolute favorite around here. So, what better way to satisfy our urges before the temperature has gone up than with a mint green watch; close enough, right? Tissot just added to the PRX collection with an Automatic 35mm and 40mm in mint green (transitioning from a quartz to an automatic model), and a PRX Chronograph in a gradient dark green.

Tissot: PRX Powermatic 80 35mm and 40mm in mint green

The Tissot PRX Automatic collection has had the watch industry in a chokehold for a while now, having coincided its launch impeccably with the surge in demand for luxury sports watches (an idea that still makes us do a double take). Tissot has slowly expanded its lineup, taking its time and taking inspiration from vintage models that they infused with an automatic movement.
