When I met my boyfriend (now husband) in college, I didn’t know much about camping and had no experience with hunting. It was the classic California girl meets Oregon boy love story. I introduced him to San Francisco’s city life and he introduced me to camping next to rivers and swimming under waterfalls. Little did I know I would be marrying a hunter, but I did like the way he dressed. Years later, I have come to know and love the Filson brand.
Might as well have the best
My husband is loyal when it comes to travel gear and travel apparel. He knows what he likes and he knows what works out in the field. He enjoys Filson jackets and has introduced our son to the brand.
This Christmas, instead of wearing my husband’s Filson hand-me-downs, my son received his first Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat. This young man is one well-dressed, happy camper!
Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat
Lightweight and strong, the Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat is wind and water repellent, ideal for San Francisco, California weather. The Filson coat comes in three colors; black, brown and otter green.
“It’s a good looking jacket that you can do anything in,” notes Evan Brown. The Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat’s dense weave and cotton lining protect from wind and rain.
The Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat retails for $290.
Filson Cover Cloth Bomber Jacket
The Filson Cover Cloth Bomber Jacket is my husband’s go-to jacket. This water-resistant bomber jacket is well worn and well loved. In fact this is his second Filson Bomber Jacket. He wasn’t happy with the way the left sleeve wore at the bottom of the knit cuff. This is the only knock my husband has with this Filson jacket.
True to Filson’s guarantee, they exchanged his Filson Cover Cloth Bomber Jacket with a replacement. Both the Filson Cover Cloth Bomber Jacket and the Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat are made in the USA.
This water-repellent bomber jacket comes in black, brown and otter green colors and retails for $235. Currently the Filson jacket is on sale for $139.99. Check the Filson website for product pricing.
“I love the Filson jacket for it’s pockets,” states Cory Brown, a sports and outdoorsman from Northern California. “You can go anywhere in the Bay Area wearing a Filson coat and feel comfortable. It’s also a good weight for Northern California weather.”
