Filson: Tan Duffle Bag
In 1897, the word on the Yukon Gold Rush spread out and thousands of gold hunters started stampeding into Seattle (Washington, USA), headed north. Therefore, Clinton C. Filson decided to open the Pioneer Alaska Clothing and Blanket Manufacturers, which specialized in goods to adequately outfit the hunters to the Klondike region (Canada), where the Gold Rush was.
At the time, clothing was not a matter of choice, but of survival, therefore the stampedes depended on Filson.
While the Gold Rush faded into history in 1899, Filson continued manufacturing solid and rugged goods, evolving into one of the most renowned brands in the world.
This mid-sized heavy-duty Duffle Bag fits enough for a long weekend and will withstand frequent travel. It features leather pulls, leather grip with two-snap closure, and adjustable, removable leather shoulder strap with leather shoulder pad. The bag’s fabric is 100% water repellent. The main compartment, secured with a two-way brass zipper, features two inside end pockets.
Formerly the style was identified as '222.
One of Filson’s trademark is its original and unique Filson label sewn on each garment, bag, and item of luggage. The label sums up Filson’s modus operandi: “Might as well have the best”.
