- Filson’s lightest-weight flannel shirt, made with 4-oz. cotton flannel
- With its breathable, light weight and broken-in feel, this flannel has quickly become one of Filson’s most in-demand shirts.
As we finish last days of summer and start early fall, the transition into the best season for menswear has just begun. To help make the season the best it can be, I’m adding my favorite rugged wardrobe essentials to my closet. When I gear up for a hike or adventure in the autumn wilds, there is no better choice than Filson.
I first became acquainted with Filson when I moved to Seattle in 1989 to start my first job as an engineering geologist. I worked on civil infrastructure and hydrogeology projects all over the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Despite the harsh conditions of working in these remote areas, I always wore Filson clothing to get me through the days and nights. Their products are made out of high-quality materials that get more comfortable with use, and I prefer their light-weight flannel Scout shirt for its versatility and ruggedness.
Filson makes a flannel shirt that is extremely comfortable, perfect for layering when it’s too cool for just a t-shirt, and not thick enough for a heavier flannel. There are six different colors of the shirt you can choose from, each of which is reminiscent of classic, vintage flannels that were rigorously sourced by Filson’s design team. The fabric is relatively thin and breathable, even when the temperatures rise. At the same time, the shirt is strong and made to last. Filson makes their lightest-weight flannel shirt with 4-oz. cotton flannel.
Filson has been trusted by generations of anglers and hunters, engineers and explorers, mariners and ranchers, and anyone who refuses to stay indoors.

Although it is not yet cold outside, I can already feel a chill in the air. I am happy to have the Filson Scout shirt to help keep me warm during the transition to fall. The Filson Scout shirt is ideal for the season.
In honoring their 125-year legacy, adventurers from Filson voyaged along the ancient coastal route of the Pacific Northwest’s Inside Passage. Learn more about the significance of this historic marine highway on The Filson Journal.
