If ever you’ve set foot in the expertly curated, perfectly rugged space that is the Filson flagship store in Seattle, you probably remember the feeling of adding a ton of gear to your wish list in a matter of seconds. That same experience is yours for the taking digitally now though, all thanks to the Filson Summer Sale — it could just be the very best place to stock up on all your summer gear needs in one fell swoop.
Even better? We’re talking at least 50 percent off on everything from daily carry essentials to lightweight summer shirting to rugged waxed outerwear (y’know, for when things finally cool off again). The Filson Summer Sale is quite simply a joy to shop, so to help you get started, we’re sharing our 7 top picks from one of the best sales of the season. When you can’t set foot in the Filson Flagship Store, this sale is the next best thing.
Cover Cloth Aberdeen Work Jacket
There are some essentials we think every guy should own, and for our money’s worth, it might be tougher to find a better value at the moment for an heirloom-quality jacket than this Filson Cover Cloth Aberdeen Work Jacket. Made to take you through the seasons, into driving rain, howling winds and beyond, this rugged piece of outerwear is a must-have. Wear it atop a henley or a flannel shirt (or both) when conditions take a turn for the worse.
Rugged Twill Ranger Backpack
If there’s one thing among many you can count on Filson to excel at producing, it’s durable everyday carry goods. The Rugged Twill Ranger Backpack is no exception to that rule, using the brand’s Rugged Twill fabric for the body while utilizing an oil finish Tin Cloth storm flap at the top — your gear is safe, sound and stylish thanks to this Filson pack.
Antique Tin Jac-Shirt
That jacket your dad or grandpa loved and wore all the time when you were a kid? There’s a chance he’s still got it, and there’s an even better chance that if he does, it’s because Filson made it. Pieces like the Antique Tin Jac-Shirt carry on that legacy of toughness and quality through to the present day, and it’s helpful that you can get this tough 100 percent cotton Tin Cloth jacket for more than 50 percent off right now.
Filson Trail Shorts
When you want to step out of your rugged Filson chore pants and breeze into something more comfortable as you fire up the grill and crack open a cold one, well, you needn’t worry about even changing brands. Filson’s Trail Shorts, with a comfortable drawstring waistband and yet tough construction, are the right way to go.
Lightweight Alaskan Guide Shirt
Never been to Alaska? This lightweight guide shirt, in both name and its outdoor-ready performance, will make you feel like you have been (it’s also 52 percent off at the moment). Although Filson makes outstandingly rugged flannel shirts, pieces like this guide shirt — with two front-button chest pockets and breathable midweight cotton construction — are crucial for summer.
24-Hour Tin Cloth Briefcase
It wouldn’t be the Filson Summer Sale without us recommending you pick up one of the very best everyday bags Filson has to offer, would it now? Any day you can snag the famed 24-Hour Tin Cloth Briefcase, especially for a heck of a deal, is a great one.
Dry Shelter Cloth Pants
Filson’s fabrics are the stuff of legend, and when you want a pair of tough pants that can do just about anything, you want something like the Dry Shelter Cloth Pants. Available for more than 50 percent off and made with tough 8oz. Dry finish shelter cloth, these are pants you can wear for hanging out by the fire or tackling a weekend’s worth of projects.
