In 1850 a pioneer spirit by the name of C.C. Filson took his love of the great wild frontier, and combined it with one of American history’s most defining chapters to create an activewear brand that would stand the test of both time and endeavor.
Starting with the Gold Rush of 1897 and continuing to this day.
“If a man is going North,” Filson penned, “he should come to us for his outfit, because we have obtained our ideas of what is best to wear in that country from the experience of the man from the North — not merely one — but hundreds of them.
Our materials are the very best obtainable, for we know that the best is none too good and that quality is of vital importance. You can depend absolutely upon our goods both as to material and workmanship.”
The most formidable of conditions provided the best inspiration for the founding Filson, and the Filson brand has since shown no signs of wavering in this mission.
Frozen tundras, arid plains, and all other inhospitable terrain are no match for the Filson kit, and everything from footwear to sleeping bags can be found in the company’s trusted catalog of goods.
Filson was a man who never stopped listening to his customer’s needs, often providing custom-made prototypes, such as the iconic U.S. Patented Cruiser Shirt.
Filson’s story is nothing short of the stuff of American lore, but the company has never been contented to linger there. They understand that times change, and while Filson’s modern followers may not be seeking gold in the uncharted west or looking to break any world records, the company’s unwavering quality and unstopable spirit have marked it an American mainstay, proving that durability, protection, and comfort will never go out of style.
