A day in the field

A day in the field

Patti Beasley has found her perfect pair of hunting pants. Not only do they keep her dry and warm, but her dog loves them too!

Even a cold, snowy day can't keep me from enjoying a day in the field with my pointer, Stetson.  My Filson ladies hunting pants not only look great, they also keep me warm and dry and protect my legs from briars. I love these pants so much they are my favorite hunting pants that I own. I guess that explains why Stetson goes crazy with excitement when he sees me put them on. WE BOTH LOVE THEM!



Filson Keeps You in the Field

Filson Keeps You in the Field

During a rainy few hunting days in Ohio, Gary Scotton discovers just how helpful his Filson clothing can be. His ability to stay dry and warm kept him out in the elements longer than his fellow hunters and allowed him to take home one of his best prizes to date.Opening day of the 2007 deer season in Ohio was a constant downpour. With temperatures in the upper 30s and a constant downpour, the season could not of opened any worse! From sun up to sun down I saw the waves of rain coming across the valley. While most of guys returned to camp early for lunch and quit early that day, I was able to stick out the entire day. My wool camo jacket, bibs and vest kept me amazingly dry. I hung my clothes ...Read More

The cold Michigan winters have made Rich Thomas a Filson lover.  He is an avid fly fisherman and upland bird hunter and never takes off for an adventure without his Filson merino wool gear on.I am an avid Filson lover and I winter steelhead in Michigan where the average temp during January is 17-22 degrees. I wear a base layer of  Filson merino wool and heavy weight merino wool socks with my Simms exstream gortex waders, and then a fleece layer over this with a Gortex jacket. I fish hard all day, I always wear mernio wool till the temps are above 32, then its my Patagonia Capiline.

WA State Sporting Clays Championships, OR State Sporting Clays Championships and the Filson Open. The “Lucky Five” received a free entry to the Main Event and a three hour clinic.

All Season Raincoat in the Redwoods

All Season Raincoat in the Redwoods

Filson fan Kristina Combs seems to never leave home without her Filson All Season Raincoat. From hiking to fixing fences, she loves it because of its ability to keep her warm all while being so light. I guess her husband knows what to get her for next Christmas!

My husband bought me a Filson All Season Raincoat for Christmas 2010 and I've been wearing it ever since, fixing fence all winter and now in the summer we trek through the Coast Redwoods of Redwood National Park almost daily. I LOVE my coat! Most importantly, it's WARM and light enough that I choose it over anything else! The coat keeps the chilly wind from thePpacific off of me and the cold summer fog up in the Redwoods doesn't stand...

All of us at Filson want to thank everyone who came out for Scott Linden’s “Bird Hunting Boot Camp,” at our Seattle Flagship store, on Saturday. A special thanks to our friend Scott Linden, and his dog Buddy, for hosting the event. If you didn’t get enough lessons from Scott, he has given us a guest blog post to share with all of you. Hopefully it will hold you over until next time.This observation gets the most nods and smiles at my Bird Hunting Boot Camp. The recent Filson Seattle event was no different. Just think about it for a minute or two and see if you agree. Buddy works hard to find birds before and after the shot. But let’s be honest. He’d rather take that shot bird and bury it tha...Read More
