Living on an island in Alaska's Tongass National Forest, the constant wet and sometimes cold conditions make wool the absolute best material to own. Nothing else comes close. I need top quality materials and workmanship and for that reason I have been a big Filson fan. Well anyway, my dad introduced me to this company and so I ordered these despite pants sometimes being a crapshoot in terms of fit. My normal size is 34x34 and the 34 option fit absolutely perfectly. They are thick, warm, comfortable, seem durable, with a more flattering fit than I expected, so I got online and ordered another pair without a moment's hesitation.
Somewhat concerned to see these are being discontinued. I certainly hope the company keeps making these quality wool garments and doing well. Vote with your wallets people, make the investment in quality materials constructed here at home. -Alaskan Islander
