MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Jan. 13, 2020 – Ducks Unlimited (DU) and Filson have teamed up to introduce a limited offering of officially licensed DU lifestyle apparel and accessories. Initially, the DU Collection will consist of more than a dozen unique pieces and is expected to expand as the partnership grows.
“Ducks Unlimited and Filson are both iconic brands with rich histories. It only seemed fitting to align the two brands to provide DU members and supporters a unique, co-branded line of merchandise – many of which could be passed down from generation to generation,” said DU CEO Adam Putnam. “Filson items are known for their quality and we know our members will be thrilled to see the DU logo appear on items they can wear or use all year long.”
