Returns and Exchanges

Return for Refund

Refunds can be expected to be made to the same form of payment originally used to make your purchase.

Processing times for refunds will be 7 to 12 business days of their being received by our Returns Department. Please note, that a credit issued to your credit card may take up to two weeks to be acknowledged by your issuing bank or credit card institution.

Return for Gift Card

If you used a Gift Card to make your purchase, the refund will be reissued to you as a gift card for Filson credit. We cannot refund a purchase made with a gift card to another method of payment. Gift cards are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash.

Items received as a gift and then returned will either be refunded to you as gift card for the purchased amount or issued the original purchasers payment method. If no purchasing information is available a gift card for the last known value of the item will be issued.


If you wish to exchange your item for another, please contact our Customer Service Department. If the item was received as a gift, please provide us with the original purchasers name or the date in which you received your item.

We will then ask you to provide us with the color, style number, and size of the item you wish to receive in exchange.

Filson cannot be held responsible for items that are delivered to the wrong address, lost or stolen in transit or otherwise delayed by third-party shipping companies, postal depots, freight forwarders, etc. As such we highly recommend insuring your return package for the full value of the item.
