The box containing my Filson Shelter Cloth Brush Pants landed on my desk Friday afternoon. A cool front and a torrential downpour arrived later that night. The cool, damp August conditions meant I wouldn't have to wait three months to put the pants to the test in the upland fields. But the rain washed out the dirt roads around my hunting area, turning the usual short walk to check my trail cameras and scout for deer into a five-mile round-trip slog the middle 400 yards of which would take me through a waist-high thistle patch. No problem. These 100% cotton pants proved to be as comfortable as heavyweight khakis, yet offered the unbeatable protection Filson garments have been delivering for more than 100 years. They are constructed of Dry Finish Shelter Cloth, sporting a water-repellent and stain-resistant finish, and feature the added protection of Oil Finish Shelter Cloth, which is treated with Filson's famous paraffin-based wax for added water repellency, on the thighs and lower legs. That walk through the thistle patch? If I had been wearing cotton BDUs or even blue jeans, it would have been miserable. The Shelter Cloth Brush Pants allowed me to plow through the prickly mess like it was a figment of my imagination.
