We’re glad to announce in-store shopping has resumed in select locations. Check our Store Locator page for updates on your local store. In the interest of everyone’s health, we’re limiting occupancy, marking safe distances, and maintaining rigorous store cleanings. Additionally, curbside pick-up is available for phone orders. Because when we say “Through Any Weather,” we’re not just referring to frigid lakeside mornings or sudden campsite downpours. It’s our mission to equip you with unfailing goods, no matter what unforeseen circumstances the world throws our way.

Below are some of the measures we’re taking in our stores to keep everyone healthy and safe, in accordance with WHO and CDC guidelines. We’ve also teamed up with our neighbors at Outdoor Research to address the ongoing shortage of personal protective equipment by manufacturing masks for those in need. Read more on that initiative here.

All Filson team members should be in gloves and a face mask immediately upon entering the store.
