Filson and Ducks Unlimited (DU), two iconic American heritage brands, today announced a new assortment of limited edition co-branded products. The new Filson x Ducks Unlimited luggage and apparel pieces are an expansion of last year’s partnership and accompanying product collection. All products feature DU’s licensed trademark and proceeds will support Ducks Unlimited’s conservation efforts.
“Filson is committed to supporting organizations like Ducks Unlimited that advocate for the protection of wildlife and the preservation of natural habitats,” said Doug Thielen, director of marketing at Filson. “Following the success of the initial Ducks Unlimited collection, we’re excited to add new products to the line as part of our ongoing DU partnership supporting waterfowl conservation efforts nationwide.”
Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest and most effective private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. Since 1937, Ducks Unlimited has protected more than fourteen million acres of wetlands across North America.
“Ducks Unlimited is excited about the expansion of our program and of our continuing partnership with Filson,” said DU Managing Director of Corporate Relations Jim Alexander. “We are equally proud of the success of the first product launch this past Fall. We are looking forward to building upon our success in 2020 and to enhancing our co-branded product collection by offering these new items.”
