We’ve been making durable, purpose-oriented garments and gear in Seattle since 1897. We began as an outfitter for prospectors traveling to the Klondike Gold Rush, and soon became recognized for our integrity and focus on natural materials, long-lasting items and superior craftsmanship. We handcraft and field test items in the Pacific Northwest, including our Seattle headquarters in the historic Star Manufacturing Building. As our founder C.C. Filson 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.”
