Founded in 1897 by C.C. Filson, Filson is a manufacturer of goods for outdoor enthusiasts. Initially a supplier of clothing and blankets for prospectors of the Klondike Gold Rush, Filson shifted to hunting-, fishing- and logging gear.
The original 256 briefcase is Filson’s most icpnic canvas bag. Built with Filson’s signature rugged twill canvas, an industrial-strength fabric that resists water and wear, this legendary bag features saddle-grade bridle leather handles, strap and accents for extra durability. Filson’s iconic Mackinaw Cruiser jacket also features on Wikiconic.
