SEATTLE, Wash. (Sept. 21, 2020) Filson and Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) today announced a limited-edition collection of co-branded products in celebration of National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands taking place Sept. 26, 2020. The collaboration supports BHA’s mission to ensure North America’s heritage of hunting and fishing on public lands and waters. The collection of Filson staples feature officially-licensed BHA graphics and logos.  

“Filson’s heritage is rooted in the outdoors and we are honored to support BHA’s advocacy for public lands, waters and wildlife,” said Doug Thielen, director of marketing at Filson. “The products promote BHA’s commitment to conservation, the importance of hunting and angling access on public lands and the wildlife that depend on it.”

“At Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, our public lands and waters are central to our identities as sportsmen and women,” said Land Tawney, BHA president and CEO. “BHA’s partnership with Filson enables us to advance our work to conserve critical fish and wildlife habitat, secure opportunities to hunt and fish, and find solace and adventure in North America’s wildest backcountry.

“I first was introduced to Filson by father and inherited his Mackinaw Cruiser when he passed away,” Tawney continued. “I have been rocking Filson ever since. We are thrilled to work with such a legacy-oriented company and to continue our collaboration through Filson’s new product line. We are grateful to Filson for its ongoing support of BHA’s mission.”
