Water-repellent, tear-resistant and built for hard use, Filson vests can be worn under a cruiser for extra warmth or as your sole layer when the day heats up.
Filson's been working with wool since 1897. Our 100% Virgin Wool can absorb up to 30 percent of its weight without feeling wet, making it the ideal fabric to build garments for men and women who work outdoors through any weather.
Water-repellent and tear-resistant, our Tin Cloth cotton is coated with a Filson proprietary oil-finish wax. Our tough jackets were dubbed “Tin Cloth” by loggers in the Pacific Northwest because it shielded them like armor from sharp limbs and saw blades.
Our mission: prepare the outdoorsman for any weather condition. We select the best materials, from heavy-duty waxed cotton to 3-layer waterproof fabrics, to offer protection from rain, snow and water so you’ll stay dry while fishing, hunting and working outdoors.
Patented by the man himself — Clinton C. Filson — the Cruiser Jacket has proven to be the most versatile outer garment for over a century. Whether your Cruiser absorbs water during a snowstorm or while you’re sweating from swinging an ax, you can rely on it to help control your body temperature and avoid hypothermia.
Our goose down is warm enough to protect geese in sub-freezing temperatures, and light enough to allow them to fly thousands of miles in their migration. While our synthetic insulation has an exceptional warmth to weight ratio, retaining most of its insulating properties when wet.
