Today is a big day around Filson HQ. Mostly because “around Filson HQ” took on an entirely new meaning as of this morning, when we unveiled our state-of-the-art Seattle headquarters and manufacturing facility.The new 57,400 square-foot factory, showroom and corporate headquarters is in a converted warehouse downtown, two blocks away from Safeco Field. It’s a massive space, with wrought iron beams, dark wood floors, and tons of light. The layout even features interior windows so the new luggage and bag factory is visible from all areas of the first floor.We’ve been manufacturing in Seattle since 1897, and while we’re keeping our apparel factory open a few blocks away, this new facility is our...Read More
The winter months had been rough. Dark days veil the distance and wet wind pierces marrow. The city skyscrapers hide among low clouds, mountains drown, windshields streak and stain with light played through endless precipitation.Those days, one can't help but wonder.Thoughts of spring shoot up like dandelions, wild-eyed and full of promise. In the Northwest, the first signs of warmth shatter cocoons and stagnant lakes ripple and teem with life once again. On one of the first beautiful days this year, the Filson team took to the highway with a car full of shooting vests, shotguns, and shells, and returned with endless appreciation for this new season.

David C., an over-road trucker with 22 years of experience, wrote us regarding his Filson jacket which has faithfully served him for over 2 million miles of travel.I hope you can repair this old friend of mine. I'm a trucker working with Werner out of Omaha, Nebraska. I'm at 2.9 million accident free miles, and 2 million of these miles have been with this jacket. It's been in blizzards, chaining up trucks, working in -10 degrees or below. Been in winds in Arizona, rains throu...Read More
After four years of constant use, intrepid excursions around the world, and endless encounters with the bottom of truck beds, duffle bags, and carry-ons, this trucker jacket speaks for itself. Displayed next to a brand-new trucker -- fresh from the factory floor -- the beauty and character of age is made distinct and compelling. The oil finish cracked and patterned, the moleskin collar softened and lightened in color, the buttons brazen and fatigued; all reminders of the memories made while worn. From the Great Wall of China to the rocky wind-torn shores of Washington, the Oil Finish Trucker Jacket yearns for more.

Constantly searching through the past for further explanation of the Filson story, we found this photograph hidden among past catalogs, antique letterpress equipment, and advertisements long gone from print. In the picture stands a young Ray Johnson, outfitted in a work-worn assortment of Filson Tin Cloth and a knowing smile. The photo was taken in the early 1920's while Ray was working in Castle Rock, Washington, located at the heart of the states' timber country. Regrettably, that's all the information we have on this photograph; it was hand-written and scrawled on the back of the print. In turn, our imaginations are flooded with the scent of rain-soaked Tin Cloth, dreary days at the f...Read More

I have spent the past 24 years serving as a law enforcement officer. When I do get a chance to take some time off, I find my most memorable experiences are times afield or fly fishing; away from traffic, phones and deadlines. My year is spent upland bird hunting in the Fall and Winter with a springer spaniel and casting a fly in the Spring and Summer, and the Fall if it doesn't i...Read More
