Filson has guaranteed that their products will stand the test of time.  They offer the kind of products that become family heirlooms and are passed down to kids from their parents and grandparents. The founder of Filson, Clinton C. Filson, was the same kind of hard-working, tough outdoorsman that we’ve noticed many Filson customers are. Filson customers have high expectations for quality and toughness because they are the kind of people who really put those items to the test out in the woods, on farms, in workshops, and more. Filson is based right here in the Pacific Northwest; you can’t get much more American than Filson.  Drew’s can get any Filson at discounted pricing call for a discount at 1-800-722-0393

Long History and Good Values

Filson is a company with a long history that was started in Seattle in the 1890’s with strong American values that remain the focus of the company today. He had a reputation for honesty and was trusted as a reliable and hard-working individual by his customers. His first major group of customers were the guys heading north for the gold rush. These guys were heading into a harsh and unknown environment and needed products that they could bet their lives on. Quality gear at the time was sometimes the difference between life and death in the Yukon.  From the beginning, the brand created and image for itself of offering unbeatable quality that you can really depend on, and we have found them to be one of the few manufacturers around to continue to offer top notch quality and products.

“Our materials are the very best obtainable, for we know that the best is none too good and that quality is of vital importance. You can depend absolutely upon our goods both as to material and workmanship.” -C.C. Filson

Made in the USA

These days it can be tough to find quality products that are made right here in the USA. Not many brands stick to a set of core American values and aren’t committed to making products in the US, where they’re not only high quality, but they create jobs for hard-working Americans. Filson has a wide array of Made in USA products to choose from.

At Drew’s we are proud to offer a variety of Filson products in the store and online including vests, bags, coats, socks, and more. Filson is an American brand that we believe in and know that our customers will be getting the very best when they choose Filson. Contact us to learn more about the products we offer.
