Filson was established in Seattle, Washington in 1897 to supply clothing
for the Alaska gold rush. Filson chose to supply the best quality available,
and did so successfully. From the prospectors and miners their sales soon extended
to the construction workers and loggers throughout Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
Today Filson, recognized for its comfort, protection and durability, is acknowledged
as the finest outdoor clothing available, by both men and women throughout the
world. Filson's reputation for quality extends to their Rugged Twill Luggage
and accessories, living up to their motto "Might as Well Have the Best".
All Filson Clothing
There are no secrets to Filson quality, just a simple dedication to using
top grade materials in functional designs, put together to last. Many of the
fabrics used are not available on the general market and must be loomed to
Filson's own specifications. From the pure Mackinaw Wool, through the Tin Cloth
for rugged wear and luggage, to the pure cotton Safari Cloth for summer weather
use, the Filson fabrics are outstanding. Filson's Cover Cloth, for example,
continues the Filson tradition of quality with a new and improved British waxed
cotton for outstanding wind and water protection in a light and comfortable
Many of the Filson items we carry are made in the USA, in Filson's own Seattle
factory. In recent years Filson has outsourced some of its items in order to
utilize factories that are best suited to specific products. Filson's
heavy wool garments, waxed cotton garments and rugged twill luggage are all
well suited to the manufacturing strengths of Filson's own Seattle factory,
and will continue to be manufactured in Seattle. Filson has found that, in
order to maintain their commitment to quality, some of the ligher weight outerwear
and sportswear is better manufactured in factories other than their own, including
overseas. The overseas factories Filson has selected have invested in technically
advanced machinery and maintain the highest levels of craftsmanship to manufacture
products consistent with Filson's high standards.
