I checked their site and catalog, and while some stuff looks okay, not really impressed by their prices.
Is it a regional thing? I mean what about Ford's long standing partnership with Eddie Bauer? Is that gone?
And where were they looking for these designers?
Did Carhartt say "No thanks"? Is LL Bean still working with Subaru?

Check their locations... Not for the average person. Also, this is not a partnership equivalent to the old eddie bauer relationship... Unlikely to be a filson trim level ever for sale.

I live in the south, the company is in Washington state. I had heard of them because some of the better sporting goods stores carry their stuff. I’ve actually bought some merchandise before. It is pricey, but high quality.

Yeah, never heard of Filson either. But Eddie Bauer is kinda old and tired, no?
Hey! I love Eddie Bauer! Although you probably have a point since I'm kinda old and tired too.:rolleyes:

Overpriced and lesser quality than the much lighter weight and better fitting products of Arc Teryx and Patagonia. You want to make a seat that’ll have incredible and long lasting textures, get ArcTeryx to bring some of their materials to the table. Second to none.

Never heard of ArcTeryx, but was given a Patagonia hoodie once. It didnt really keep heat, and the elastic in the cuffs and waist gave up real quick. I saw they werent really cheap either so O wore it to show I was appreciative of the gift. While my Carhartt gear is WAY heavier, the jacket I have is 14 years old, still takes a beating, and doesnt seem to wear out.

word. Hoodies and outerware is like flip flops and hiking boots.
I hear you though. I still have a hooded Carhart from college. No holes.
