C. C. FILSON INHERITED HIS FATHER'S

Pioneer spirit and love of the outdoors

After homesteading in Nebraska and roaming the country as a railroad conductor, he moved to the small city of Seattle, Washington in the 1890s.

Filson History

Filson’s timing couldn’t have been better. By 1897, the Great Klondike Gold Rush was on, and thousands of fortune hunters were stampeding into Seattle, headed north. Armed with a strong work ethic, a reputation for honesty and several years’ experience operating a small loggers’ outfitting store, C. C. Filson was ready to stake his claim to fame.

FILSON'S PHILOSOPHY

The absolute best

Clinton Filson spent a lot of time talking to his customers and refining his designs to their specifications.

Over 120 years later

Filson’s philosophy has never changed: Make sure it’s the absolute best. Clinton Filson spent a lot of time talking to his customers and refining his designs to their specifications. So it’s not surprising that the items that worked then still work today, over 120 years later. Comfort, protection and durability never go out of style.

WHAT WORKED THEN

Still works now.

The goods we quote must not be confounded with the cheap and vastly inferior grade with which the market is over-run. Such goods are not only useless for the purpose for which they are intended, but the person wearing them would be better off without them.

-- Clinton C. Filson, 1914 catalog
