MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Mar. 10, 2021– Ducks Unlimited (DU) and Filson, two iconic American heritage brands, announced a new assortment of limited edition co-branded products for spring. The new Filson/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."
Filson has a long-standing heritage in the outdoors. They are committed to supporting DU’s conservation mission, while sharing similar missions of sustainability and the promotion of outdoor recreation.
"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 on our success in 2020 and enhancing our co-branded product collection by offering these new items."
