FILSON
X
TEN THOUSAND

While Filson was born in the woods and Ten Thousand in the gym, our visions are strikingly similar: to create gear for some of the world's toughest, most adventurous men. That's why we've teamed up with the legendary American outfitter to launch a limited run of our most durable gear in Filson's signature Marsh Olive colorway.

Designed to meet the demands of men for whom failure is not an option, the Filson x Ten Thousand collaboration is built for our everyday heroes - the first responders and wildland firefighters for whom physical training is a way of life.

FEATURES

When looking to create a training short built to perform for the needs of military fitness, we recognized that there were certain non-negotiables. First, the short had to be durable. Between the constant friction and pressure from rucksacks and the unpredictability of the terrain, the Tactical Short needed to be able to do more than take a scratch – it needed to be able to take a beating. Further, it had to complement the durability with breathability and minimal weight to create ultimate versatility. Military training is about being prepared for unpredictability so if your gear isn't ready fro everything, it isn't ready for anything. Finally, it had to meet the specific needs of the military community: easy to wash, swim capable, secure pockets, permanently odor free, convenient and comfortable and more. The Tactical Short addresses all of this and more, establishing itself as the ideal short for all military training and for men who train with military intensity.

TOUGH AS NAILS,
LIGHT AS A FEATHER

The Tactical Short required us to take our fabric and feature development to another level in order to deliver a best-in-class training short that was light enough to excel while running or swimming, while simultaneously durable enough to handle rough terrains, hard lifting sessions, or long rucks. While a hard dichotomy to navigate, we were able to find the right balance with a proprietary ripstop fabric that’s tough, breathable, lightweight, and much more.

  • Premium ripstop shell fabric designed exclusively for this product
  • Lightweight and breathable for comfort through every session
  • Durable and hard wearing for many missions and years to come
  • Ultra tough waistband to stay in place and in one piece no matter what
  • Tested to withstand over 10,000 abrasions on the shell fabric and over 20,000 abrasions on the waistband

READY FOR ANYTHING

The guys we built this product for don’t have the luxury of just being good at one thing. They need to prepare for and excel in everything they encounter. The goal of training for these guys, and all the men who train with this intensity, is to become mentally and physically indestructible. That means the Tactical Short had to be able to keep up and keep going through anything that could be thrown at it so we built in features and functionality that served the wide ranging needs of military fitness.

  • Four-way stretch for complete range of motion in any session
  • No chafing guaranteed, even when soaking wet
  • Quick drying fabric to allow easy transition from water to land and back again
  • Side pockets with zip closures to keep items close and secure, and to streamline the pockets when swimming
  • Dedicated pocket for convenient storage of your ID or cash/card
  • On liner phone pocket for an out-of-the-way place to keep your phone stationary, and bounce-free while on the go
  • Side slits for additional range of motion and mobility
