In 1897, Clinton Filson opened C.C. Filson's Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers, specializing in goods to outfit the stampeders to the Klondike Gold Rush. The wet and extreme cold in the Klondike meant your life depended on keeping dry and warm. It was for these rugged conditions that Filson designed his goods. He owned his own mill and manufactured Mackinaw Wool clothing and blankets, knit goods, and boots specially designed for the frigid North.
Filson has continued to make goods from the best materials obtainable, and guarantees every piece of merchandise. Filson's reputation as the premier outfitter for outdoorsmen has spread around the globe. Whether you work in harsh outdoor weather or the backcountry is your playground, Filson products are guaranteed to perform and last. Over the years, Filson's philosophy has never changed: Make sure it's the absolute best. Comfort, protection and durability never go out of style.
