This new short documentary features Jotaro Yoshida, founder and designer of LOCUS GEAR. The film tells his story of developing the Djedi Dome: the first tent made with waterproof-breathable Dyneema® Composite Fabric. Jotaro explains why breathability was such an essential property for his dome tent—a property that he had been in search of for nearly four years. In the film he’s joined at his studio and on a winter field trip to Mount Tanigawa, one of Japan’s ‘100 Famous Mountains’.
