Filson has launched a stylish collection of motorcycle gear


Last year Filson, the universally loved Seattle-based heritage brand, launched a small but mighty collection of motorcycle gear.

And then it quickly sold out.

A year later, he is back. So if you’ve missed the chance to stock your closet with rugged, field-tested clothing, now’s the time to pounce.

The Alcan collection includes five products designed to protect you from the weather and abrasions during off-road riding and adventure touring. So while everything here can be used on a typical asphalt cruise, it really comes into its own when you get off the beaten path.

The range is anchored by a few jackets. The Canvas Cruiser is constructed with heavy-duty cotton canvas that keeps heat in and water out. It is fully lined and reinforced at the shoulders and arms. The quilted jacket combines the classic style of a bomber jacket with a rugged sensibility: the waxed canvas shell is insulated with PrimaLoft, the rib-knit cuffs and collar provide a custom fit and block the wind, and the outer coating repels wind. ‘water.

Also for your top half is the Canvas Vest, which provides a heavy-duty 17-ounce waxed canvas layer that’s reinforced with ballistic nylon that was developed for WWII body armor. Nothing goes through there.

They haven’t forgotten your legs. The Double Front pant is made of abrasion resistant cotton and reinforced in the front and seat. And finally, leather gloves. These are made from premium deerskin that is durable, soft and supple, with padded knuckles and palms.

Now all you need is a bike and a place to go.
