Chris Stapleton, Filson debut Traveller Collection

Aug 08, 2023

Filson, the original American heritage outfitter, has announced a collaboration with award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician Chris Stapleton. The Traveller Collection is a five-piece ensemble meticulously designed and handcrafted, available on October 5th.

“The Filson x Chris Stapleton collaboration goes beyond a mere endorsement; it is a true creative partnership,” says Alex Carleton, CCO at Filson. “Working closely with our design team, Stapleton’s insights and preferences influenced the Collection’s aesthetics and functionality. This collaborative approach ensures that each item in the Traveller Collection bears the distinct mark of both Filson’s time-honored craftsmanship and Chris Stapleton’s creative input, resulting in a Collection that seamlessly merges heritage and contemporary style.”

The Traveller Collection harmoniously marries authenticity, functionality, and artistic expression, and is comprised of The Travelling Outfitter Bag, The Traveller Stowaway Backpack, The Traveller Dopp Kit, The Traveller Medium Duffle Bag, and The Traveller Suit Cover.

Unearthed from the Filson archives, the Traveller Outfitter Rugged Twill bag seamlessly blends heritage and functionality. With separate top and bottom compartments and exclusive yellow zippers personally selected by Chris Stapleton, it offers optimal utility and flair for adventurers.

The Traveller Stowaway Backpack is a versatile backpack featuring a drawstring-cinch top closure and lightweight and unstructured body, this bag made with Ranger dry-waxed ripstop cotton from British Millerain fits a lot and packs down without taking up a lot of space.

Showcasing the mastered design of Filson’s popular Rugged Twill Travel Kit, the Traveller Dopp Kit bag comes in a special Cinder colorway and includes a collaboration hangtag.

Crafted with dependable Rugged Twill and resilient harness leather, the enduring Traveller Medium Duffle Bag embodies a timeless design made special with Chris Stapleton’s signature debossed onto the leather tab.

Made with Ranger dry-waxed ripstop cotton from British Millerain, the Traveller Suit Cover is durable and one-of-a-kind, bearing Chris Stapleton’s initials on the zipper pulls and custom collaboration tags.

Chris Stapleton’s connection to Filson can be traced back to his formative years with his father, who wore Filson gear while hunting. Ever since, Stapleton has been donning Filson gear on the road and in daily life—and the connection between Filson and Chris Stapleton goes far beyond practicality and style.

“It’s been an incredible process developing the ‘Traveller Collection’ with Filson.” says Stapleton. “Inspired by my needs on the road and the desire to revive archived Filson pieces, we’ve created products that I genuinely use and love. Filson feels like part of my family, and their commitment to lasting craftsmanship aligns perfectly with my values. It’s been an honor to collaborate with such a legendary brand that creates products meant to outlive us all.”

The Chris Stapleton Traveller Collection will be available for purchase exclusively on starting October 5tb. Available now is a custom Filson graphic tee supporting Outlaw State of Kind (OSOK), a charitable fund founded by Chris and Morgane Stapleton that supports a variety of causes in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, of which all proceeds will be donated to OSOK.
