If you know Gear Patrol, odds are good you know Filson. The Washington-based outdoor apparel brand is no stranger to us; we've written about their wares and work countless times, from their boots to their jeans to their collaboration with Ford to whip up one badass fire-fighting Bronco.
Last year, Filson has cast its very stylish hat into the world of motorcycle gear for the first time — and it proved a massive success. Indeed, The Alcan collection, as Filson calls it, wound up being sold out. Now, though, it's back.
The Alcan collection is made for motorcycle riders who ride ADVs and dual sports, pushing past the pavement and into the wilderness for a thrill asphalt-bound riders will never know. It's all made from top-quality materials, designed to resist both climate and impact — and to look good doing it.
Check out the highlights of the Alcan collection below. Or, hit the button just below to see the entire lineup.
Paraffin-wax-saturated cotton canvas construction provides protection against the weather, while ample ballistic nylon helps keep away road rash in the event you drop your bike. Also, damn, it looks good.
Looking for a motorcycle jacket with a nice quilted finish that's warm enough for chilly rides but tough enough for whatever the road throws at you? Look no further.
Are you the type of person who likes to rock a vest? If so, this beauty might be a must-add to the closet. It combines features from Filson's regular work vests with waxed canvas and ballistic nylon for ride-ready protection from wind and weather.
Sometimes, even blue jeans aren't tough enough for the task at hand. These ride-ready pants pick up where denim leaves off, packing a combination of super-abrasion-resistant cotton duck, canvas and ballistic nylon.
You don’t have to sacrifice safety to stay cool when riding on hot summer days.
