Cobain, the Seahawks, whatever you relate Seattle to here at The Content Store it will always be the iconic outdoor brand Filson. Born during the Klondike Goldrush of 1887 company founder Clinton C. Filson soon realised that the prospectors flocking to Seattle were not merely equipped enough for the harsh conditions they would soon be experiencing in the mines. It was soon that Clinton started to produce his own outdoor garments created especially for the challenges that would encounter the city's newly found prospector population. Fast forward 127 years and Filson is still producing near on indestructible bags with Clinton C. Filsons words of "might as well have the best" proving to be very much the truth.
