Takaku Tomoki, a back country pro-snowboarder from Japan tested our possum pullover during the 07/08 winter season in Hokkaido and gave it two thumbs up for its lightness and warmth.

If you’re ever in Hokkaido and want a guided tour of the back country you can contact him at Powder Company Guide. Check him out here, snowboarding the steepest mountains of Mongolia and through the beautiful landscape of Alaska.

Toruman wears our sweater! - Jan 8, 2008

Toruman is an independent song writer/musician/lifeguard, born and raised in Japan. He writes most of his music in his lifeguard tower while watching over people on the beaches of Atami. Some of his songs are played through the speakers on the beach, where a record company executive heard his music and the rest is history.

His musical inspirations come from his experiences traveling around the world and his love of the mellow surf lifestyle.

You might be able to catch him out on the waves of Atami, Japan, or it just might be easier to catch him here.
