Scheduled for release in August 2018 just in time for fall, the new line of Filson CCF workwear looks to provide workers and outdoorsmen with warm, functional clothing. For those of you who aren’t hip to this Seattle brand, Filson established itself in 1897 with the express purpose of outfitting prospectors headed for the Yukon. Since then, they’ve built a reputation for producing high-quality, durable gear for anyone from hunters to ranchers to engineers. This new clothing lineup carries Clinton C. Filson’s initials and looks to carry on that tradition.
Filson Has This To Say…
“CCF Workwear is a product extension dedicated to tradesmen who take pride in their work and deserve straightforward, practical clothing they can rely on.”-Alex Carleton, Chief Creative Officer at Filson
A Quick Note About Filson CCF Workwear’s Place in the Market
There are two major things you need to know about Filson CCF workwear and Filson as a brand in general. Number 1, this is premium workwear that comes with premium prices. Filson doesn’t produce clothing to just fit in, they produce to outperform your expectations. Building that kind of clothing doesn’t come at bargain basement pricing.
Number 2, Clinton Filson got his start outfitting Yukon gold seekers and Pros in the timber industry up north. For those of us down here in the south, we’re not going to find as much use for their clothing. At the very least we’ll have fewer days of the year that it’s out go-to workwear.
So it’s well-built and designed to keep you warm. Let’s look at the new line’s details.
What Does Filson CCF Workwear Have In Store?
Filson CCF Utility Jacket
Filson has constructed this piece from cotton duck canvas and lightweight, polyester insulation. It features handwarmer pockets that the brand has designed to accommodate gloved hands. It also comes with an adjustable hood, two chest pockets, and a security pocket located on the inside of the jacket.
Filson CCF Bomber Jacket
Made from wind and abrasion resistant cotton duck canvas, and outfitted with a hip-length cut for better mobility and tool-belt access, the Filson CCF Bomber Jacket screams “functional.” Filson has triple-stitched and riveted the seams on this jacket for increased durability.
Filson CCF Arctic Down Parka
If the name of this one hasn’t clued you into this fact yet, I’ll just go ahead and hit you with some truth: this piece of the Filson CCF lineup was made for frigid weather. It has a cotton duck shell with goose-down insulation. A corduroy collar, rib-knit inner cuffs, and rib-knit waist should help keep the heat in, even in the coldest conditions. It comes with high-set, lined handwarmer pockets, as well as front and side entry lower pockets.
Filson CCF Quilted Utility Jacket
Constructed from a nylon shell, this all-purpose jacket features quilted polyester insulation and rib-knit cuffs and collar to keep the wind out. The Filson CCF Quilted Utility Jacket also comes with an action back that allows a full range of motion.
Filson CCF Work Vest
Filson made this work vest from their rugged duck canvas and diamond quilt insulation. It has a drop tail for added coverage, and triple-stitched seams and reinforced rivets add to the vest’s durability.
Filson CCF Utility Canvas Pants
Filson makes these pants to last a while, with hard-wearing cotton duck fabric backed up with triple-needle stitching and rivets on the rear pocket bottoms for increased durability. They also include double-layer knees with an opening to accommodate knee pads.
Filson CCF Work Bibs
Durability is the name of the game here, as these work bibs feature 12-oz cotton duck fabric, triple-stitching, and reinforcing rivets. Filson includes plenty of pockets for various tools, and the work bibs also have the double-layer knees for accommodating knee pads.

Filson CCF Crewneck Sweatshirt

At least it’s made in Canada, not that oversees garbage you guys have promoted in the past. 🇨🇦
