Filson Brings Black Back with New Bag Collection

Black is the new black according to popular outdoor outfitters Filson. The Seattle-based fly-fishing fanatics just added a fashionable hue to its core collection of bag offerings, bridging a gap between survival and style. The new Black Collection takes some of the brand’s most toted shapes from its rugged twill styles—including the game bag messenger, original briefcase, and more—and gives the known products a chic update making an otherwise casual collection now stand out as a go-to dress up accessory.

Two favorites that we’ll be adding to our shopping list this season are the Rucksack, a grown-up version of a traditional book bag, incorporating the company’s signature leather carrying straps and brass hardware, and the Tin Cloth Medium Duffle, because we all need a good weekender for summer getaways. Both bags are water-resistant, so getting caught in the rain just became a non-factor.
