Established in 1897 to meet the needs of prospectors hoping to profit from the Klondike Gold Rush, Filson has a rich heritage of producing high quality, high performance products that look as good today as they always did. While you might not be heading to the hills in search of gold, you can trust Filson to help you carry your gear safely and with style.
Before founding his iconic brand, Clinton C. Filson operated a humble loggers' outfitting store. When he first established C.C. Filson, the company supplied a range of outdoor gear which included clothing, boots, blankets and sleeping bags. His market changed with the end of the gold rush around 1899, at which point the focus shifted to gear for outdoor activities like fishing, hunting and logging.

Filson today is a brand recognised around the world for creating rugged, high-quality items suited to an outdoor lifestyle, but there are no sacrifices to style. Filson has always stayed true to the philosophy on which it was founded. The brand never settles for anything less than the best - Clinton Filson himself spent much of his time speaking with customers in order to refine his designs. What worked over 120 years ago still works today: Filson is the go-to brand for comfort, protection and durability.
Investing in a Filson product means investing in a quality product that will stand the test of time. Filson bags combine classic looks with contemporary features for products that are truly timeless. Items are made in the USA and designed to withstand the elements, with fabrics such as Filson’s water repellent Tin Cloth ensuring that whatever you need to carry stays safe and dry. High quality bridle leather is also used for handles and trims, which produces a beautiful patina over time. Filson’s most iconic lines include bridle leather-trimmed canvas luggage, which dates back to the early days of the brand, and is instantly recognisable for its rugged, high quality style.
The Filson range includes everything from computer bags with padding to keep your equipment safe to Filson briefcases, holdalls and totes, meaning whatever you need to carry there is Filson equipment available to help you.
