Over-Hauling Your Summer
The Filson Essentials That Will Carry Your Summer, From the Alaska Range to the Adirondacks
You can’t get much more Americana than Filson. The Seattle based outdoor wear company is over 120 years old and still producing classics. Known for rugged tin cloth, Filson has been outfitting generations of American outdoor enthusiasts, and no summer weekend getaway or bold new adventure would be complete without a bit of Filson kit in the mix. Before heading outdoors this summer take a look at this full rigout of our favorite Filson essentials from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. And we didn’t even stop there for the lineup, we also included the bag to haul it all with. No matter the variety — canvas tote or four-wheeled carry-on — The bag you escape to your summer get-away says it all, the symbol of the whole adventure. Luckily, we have the perfect bag for this summer’s latest exploration, whether you’re in the Pacific Northwest, far-flung in Alaska or in the mountains of New York state.
Tin Cloth Duffle Pack
Made from the same iconic cloth that’s made Filson the legendary company it is today, this duffle is ready for anything you throw at it. Cut from 15 oz tin cloth and nylon webbing, you can haul it in any weather imaginable. You can easily switch up carrying the bag like a duffle or break out the stowable backpack straps for those longer treks. Inside, you’ll find a nylon coated accordion pocket to stow your wet and muddy kit and a padded laptop pocket. This duffle will quickly become your go-to when heading out fishing, hunting, or just taking a quick weekend out of town.
Feather Cloth Shirt
The lightest shirt you can get from Filson this 3 oz cotton shirt is light as a feather and easily packable — perfect if you’re planning a summer getaway that involves some long hikes and posting-up at the local tavern afterwards. The pre-washed fabric is as soft as can be and won’t shrink up on you, while the double needle construction makes sure you can depend on it.
A new timepiece from Filson, the chronograph is as rough and tumble as you would expect — and still accurate. The quartz movement is no fuss and stainless steel case and rubber strap can take a beating. This is the kind of timepiece that can take whatever you can dish out.
Danner Crater Rim Boot
Made by another North-West icon Danner, but available through Filson, the Crater Rim Boots are made in Portland and offer unparalleled comfort with a breathable Gore-Tex lining. These rugged but comfortable boots are perfect for stomping around any terrain a hike could take you on, or back in the city for everdaywear.
Logger Mesh Cap
No summer getaway is complete without a good cap to shade you. This made-in-the-USA trucker is perfect for the laid back summer fishing trip with plenty of retro vibes to go around. Bend it, sweat in it, laugh in it, make it your own.
