Established in 1897, we are the leading outfitter and manufacturer of unfailing goods for outdoor enthusiasts.

Our Story

Established by Clinton C. Filson in 1897, Filson has become known as the "gold standard" for tough, comfortable outdoor clothing prized by anglers and hunters, engineers and explorers, mariners and miners, and anyone who refuses to stay indoors.

We put the same care into all our products that Clinton Filson insisted on since 1897. As he said in his 1926 catalog "...it is the Filson ideal and policy to produce only the best in Outdoor Clothes that it is possible to manufacture." We believe that no one can craft our heavy wools, rugged cottons and genuine Bridle Leather with the same quality and durability that we can right here.



Over the years, Filson's philosophy has never changed: Make sure it's the absolute best. Clinton Filson spent a lot of time talking to his customers and refining his designs to their specifications. So it's not surprising that the items that worked then still work today, over 100 years later. Comfort, protection and durability never go out of style.

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, our company stands for the highest quality and most durable apparel and accessories available.
