    Anyone have any experience pro/con on this line of clothing?
    A bit pricy.
    Thanks in advance.

    Pricey but very nice and wears like iron. They also stand behind their products. A hat I have started coming apart at one of the seams after 2 years and they sent a new one right out, no questions asked and no charge - I expected them to just repair the hat.

    You get what you pay for.

    Filson has been in business since forever and they have a great reputation for quality.

    I have a pair of wool Filson pants that must be at least 75 years old and still going strong.

    I have their double wool mackinaw, and several tin cloth items (ie, Packer Coat, single pants, and hunting vest). IMHO, buying Filson clothing is more of an investment than a purchase. There is no reason why these articles shouldn't last me the rest of my life....well, there is one reason why they might not last the rest of my life....WIHH's cooking has something to do with that.
