The sun is out and its finally time to hit the trails and discover the beauty BC has to offer.
American heritage brand Filson opened its Vancouver store in April and carries goods for those who love to venture into the great outdoors.
Founded in Seattle in 1897 by C.C. Filson, the company began with outfitting prospectors who were flocking north for the Klondike Gold Rush.
The outdoor retailer is staying true to its roots and offers classic pieces that withstand the test of time.
Filson isn’t in the business of skinny jeans, nor does it want to be. Instead, it focuses on providing unfailing quality goods, all of which are guaranteed for life.
“We embrace who we are and we don’t run away from it. There are people who think if we did trim fit or did more product for the urban consumer, we’d sell more. But that’s not how we roll,” Alex Carleton, the Creative Director of Filson, told Daily Hive.
Whether you’re headed out on a camping trip or a trail walk, here are four Filson must-haves for the summer season.
This new all-purpose travel bag can be carried as a duffle or a backpack and is made with lightweight and tear-resistant matte nylon, guaranteed to stand up to the elements no matter where you take it.
Get ready for any adventure in the new version of our classic Jac-Shirt. This functional summer work jacket is both water-repellent and lightweight.
Whether on the trail or as a layering piece for the next family vacation to the BC Interior, this vest is a reward to those who love to get outside. A cross-functional, lightweight quilted vest with a streamlined build that can be worn on its own in the summer or as a layer in the winter.
This light short sleeve shirt is perfect for those long days spent at the river. Now in new plaid colours, this lightweight, breathable cotton button-front shirt features pleated back for ease of movement in shoulders, a tuck-length hem for casual comfort and double-needle construction, flat fell seams. Made with 3-oz. pre-washed Feather Cloth.
