Filson was founded in 1897 with the opening of C.C. Filson's Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers, specializing in items to outfit the stampeders to the Klondike Gold Rush. The gold rush faded into history, but Filson kept listening to his customers and outdoorsmen kept coming to Filson for rugged clothing.
Over the years, Filson's philosophy has never changed: make sure it’s the absolute best. It is therefore not surprising that the items that worked then still work today, over 120 years later. Comfort, protection and durability never go out of style.
