Takibi

"A bonfire or open-air fire" | Japanese

Snow Peak are true believers in the restorative nature of Takibi Time, an ancient Japanese tradition. Takibi Time is the act of gathering outdoors around a fire, sharing food and building meaningful bonds. Spending time outdoors is an antidote to the stresses of modern life, restoring the human spirit.

Snow Peak's Pack & Carry Fireplace is at the heart of an expansive, legacy-grade  collection of products. All are thoughtfully engineered, made with care and built to last products that are designed to work cohesively together. Snow Peak's products undergo rigorous testing to ensure maximum functionality and durability.

History

The Pack & Carry Fireplace is the original packable fire pit, dating back to the 1990s. The design of the Snow Peak Fireplace is the result of a boom in car camping which left campgrounds damaged from in-ground fires. Snow Peak's then-president, Tohru Yamai, was inspired to develop the innovative Pack & Carry Fireplace, the first of its kind. A fireplace that can be used anywhere, protects the ground, provides a sustained and controlled burn and can be combined with accessories for a personalised cooking experience. Today, the Pack & Carry Fireplace is one of Snow Peak's most popular products and continues to be made with care in Niigata, Japan.

About the Fireplace

The Snow Peak Pack & Carry Fireplace has a unique inverted pyramid design allowing it to fold flat. A high grade, 1.5mm thick stainless steel was determined to be the best for long term durability against high temperatures while still being easily transportable. 

The fireplace comes in four sizes; small, medium, large and x-large. The small, medium and large sizes come with a nylon carry case. Accessories for cooking such as a base plate, grill etc can also be bought separately to fit the medium and large fireplaces. Or, the large is available as a complete starter kit (more details below).

Features:

  • Structured from four triangular panels that fold into a sturdy inverted pyramid receptacle.
  • Made from 1.5 mm thick stainless steel that is durable enough to withstand high temperatures while still being easy to carry.
  • 316-grade stainless steel is corrosion resistant with excellent strength and toughness.
  • The fireplace sits several inches off the ground so it doesn't damage the grass or leave unsightly burnt patches.
