Born in 1850, C. C. Filson inherited his father's pioneer spirit and love of the outdoors. After homesteading in Nebraska and roaming the country as a railroad conductor, he moved to the small city of Seattle, Washington in the 1890's, just in time the Great Klondike Gold Rush of 1897.

Filson owned his own mill and manufactured Mackinaw clothing, Mackinaw blankets and knit goods, as well as selling boots, shoes, moccasins and sleeping bags specially designed for the frigid North. Filson kept in close contact with his customers, improving his goods to meet their specific needs. The stampeders depended on Filson. In that era, clothing wasn't a matter of choice, but of survival.

Over the past 100 years Filson's philosophy hasn't changed: make sure it's the absolute best. Here at TGD we are long standing fans of Filson and very proud to have them on our brand roster and offer a range of their bags and outerwear.
