#THEWANDERER
The third and final leg of #TheWanderer continues around the world to Japan. Pro skier and adventurer, Kalen Thorien is joined by local ambassador, Kiki, who together follow the path of the water from its source in the lush green mountains, into the jungle-like valleys, and ending at the sea. In addition to mountain biking and stand up paddle boarding, the duo explore the rich culture of Japan by backpacking 40km of the Shinetsu Trail, visiting shrines and temples along the way.

A lightweight protective jacket that keeps pace.

Like the roots of a cedar tree, Japan's traditions run deep throughout the centuries. It's less about accomplishment, and more about attaining the journey. Stillness in itself is an adventure. Rather than going all out, we go in, seeking the unknown.
