James Tessmann’s first introduction to Filson was with the Feather Cloth Shooting Shirt from a DU Banquet. After that he was hooked on the big game upland hat and keeps coming back for more. He recommends the product to others and says, “They last, despite the abuse.” James sports his cap to enjoy outdoor sports such as Fly Fishing, sport clay shooting, duck hunting, small game hunting, hiking, outdoor photography, ranching and farming. I've owned every piece of gear under the sun. The only piece I'll swear by, that's never broke, let me down or been replaced is My Waterfowler Hat. It's solid gold.
