Thread: Filson shelter cloth packer hat

  1. #1

    Default Filson shelter cloth packer hat

    Anyone have one of these? Effective in keeping the rain off your head? Long lasting? I know the filson name carries a tradition of excellence but I always like to hear from people first on an expensive item.

    Also may purchase one of their wallets but that's besides the point, I have the George Costanza look going on right now with my wallet though so I'm not sure I deserve a filson one.

    Good looking hat, I have the shelter cloth fly fishing vest and it is as tough as nails and imagine the hat will outlast you...

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I ended up buying it on ebay, free shipping will always win with me, I'm going to have about 50$ in cabelas points so I may be getting their strap vest something about a hand made item made in the USA.

    I have the strap vest, if possible get the foul weather model (made with the shelter cloth waxed/oil). They are water resistant and won't rot.

    I'm a total Filson fan boy and have both the shelter cloth packer hat, and the foul weather strap vest. Both are great pieces. Pull the trigger.

    I'm in total agreement with the guys. My Filson Packer hat has been used and used hard, and it keeps coming back for more and holding up its end of the bargain! Besides, how can you not love an American-made product line that features a hat size large enough to fit my "bucket" head??

    OK... since I've already set the table, so to speak, please be gentle with all comments regarding the connection between my hat size and the fact that I have brown eyes...

    Besides, the Speaker of the House already has beat everybody to the punch on that one, as she's been telling me that for years...

    As for the Filson strap vest? The foul-weather vest is the way to go...

    Well, looks like I'll have to save my pennies up for the foul weather vest.

    My brother has had that hat for 20 years.

    It's doesn't get as much use as it used to, but it shows very little wear.

    Got the hat today, love the feel, fit, and look. My wife however does not like it, says I look like an old man and I asked what's wrong with that
