Summer Packer Hat
Made with lightweight, water-repellent, breathable fabric that offers UPF50+ sun protection, this classic fedora-style hat is easily rolled up and packed for travel. Side ventilating grommets add comfort.
Short Sleeve Washed Feather Cloth Shirt
Filson’s Short Sleeve Washed Feather Cloth Shirt is an extra-soft version of the classic, all-natural shirt that’s been a warm-weather staple for decades. When the day heats up, there’s nothing more comfortable against your skin than lightweight 100% cotton, and with this heavily-prewashed variant, you can enjoy that exceptional comfort from the first day.
Swiftwater Rain Jacket
The Swiftwater Rain Jacket – waterproof and breathable rain and snow protection in a superlight shell that’s ready to pull out of your pack when the weather takes a turn. Different jobs need different tools–while some tasks demand weather-resistant, heavy-duty armor that stands up to the nastiest briars, brush and abrasion imaginable, our Swiftwater Rain Jacket is engineered for active use that requires lightweight, waterproof protection that can be pulled out of your pack or vest in an instant.
Twin Lakes Sport Shirt
Built for warm-weather action, Filson’s Twin Lakes Sport Shirt is a sportsman’s best friend on hot summer days. Whether fishing high-desert streams, hiking into alpine lakes, or poling a skiff across tide flats, the polyester/nylon blend provides quick-drying sun protection and excellent breathability.
When your father needs to bail water out of the drift boat, or even rafting down a class-4 rapid, he’ll be glad to have Filson’s Dry Backpack securely strapped in. Engineered for straight-forward waterproof protection, it comfortably carries gear and keeps it dry, no matter how wet the conditions get. The Filson Dry Backpack – fully-waterproof protection and load-carrying comfort that’s engineered for the wettest conditions, for the long haul.
Short Lined Cruiser
Above Alaska: Bush Pilots of the Last Frontier
Willy Fulton is a floatplane pilot based in Kodiak, Alaska. The staff at Filson caught up with Willy to ask him a few questions about how he ended up there, with arguably one of the coolest jobs in the world.
Covering 663,268 square miles, Alaska is larger than Texas, California, and Montana, combined. With only 20% of that land mass accessible by road, aviation is not a luxury in Alaska. It is a necessity.
