Need some training motivation? Outdoor company Filson and workout apparel brand Ten Thousand have joined forces on a new line of clothing and accessories, designed to work as well in the gym as it does in the great outdoors.
The Filson x Ten Thousand Collection launches today, and the two brands say this one was “designed to meet the training needs of first responders and wildland firefighters.” Inspired by the active lifestyles of first responders and the often harsh conditions they work in, each of the pieces in this no frills capsule collection was designed with functionality in mind.
The collaboration launches with three minimally-styled, sweat-wicking pieces — all of which are available to purchase online now.
“Filson and Ten Thousand users share similar values and lifestyles,” Filson’s Chief Creative Officer Alex Carleton says, in a statement. “Both are smart, tough and prepared. The collaboration between the two brands resulted in a collection perfect for our everyday heroes — the first responders and wildland firefighters whose physical training is a way of life.
“The design behind the collection was led by the athletes and heroes it was made for, like Frogman Combat Veteran and backcountry hunter, Alex Fitchler, who helped put the collection through its paces for the lookbook,” Carleton adds.
Not a combat vet or outdoorsmen? The brands say the new collaboration also works as part of the essentials you need for a day in the gym or out on the trails. Worth noting: Rolling Stone recently named Ten Thousand as one of the best workout brands for men.
The high-performance Versatile Shirt features Ten Thousand’s and Filson’s logos on the back of the breathable tee in Filson’s iconic orange color. On top of its built-in, anti-odor tech, the shirt was put through serious amounts of abrasion testing to guarantee its durability.
The new line also includes a version of Ten Thousand’s excellent stretchy-and-rugged ripstop Tactical Shorts. The shorts have compression lining, plus a concealed zippered pocket for your keys or phone.
For the final piece in the collaboration, the two brands decided to create a durable pair of socks for training, that we think can easily work for hikes and travel, too. Both breathable and comfortable, the socks are outfitted with mesh throughout, cushioning in the most important spots on your feet, along with some compression and arch support.
Each piece in the collection comes in a unique marsh olive tone, inspired by the landscape of the woods and high desert.
“Having Filson ask us to help them make this collection is an incredible honor,” explains Ten Thousand’s founder Keith Nowak in a release. “While Filson was born in the woods and Ten Thousand was born in the gym, we both share a spirit that’s been forged from hard work, grit and the will to become better than we were yesterday. And this collection encompasses that perfectly.”
The Filson and Ten Thousand Collection is available to shop online here starting today.
