As providers of rugged quality for over 120 years, Filson are one of the leading names in premium outdoor clothing and bags today. Founded in 1897 as C.C. Filson’s Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers, Filson set out to create quality goods to surpass the requirements of stampeders of the Klondike Gold Rush, keeping in close contact with customers to ensure his goods were improved to meet their specific needs of not fashion, but survival in the frigid North. Filson’s name quickly became synonymous with both reliability and durability as his reputation spread, shipping orders to as far as Greenland maintaining the very same mantra as in the beginning; make sure it’s the absolute best. The iconic Mackinaw Cruiser jacket is a best seller on Blackleaf. Patented in 1914, outdoorsmen have relied on this 100% virgin Mackinaw Wool layer for its water repellency and insulating warmth in any conditions for over a century.
