Just to be clear, the image is not of my actual boots.
I'm pretty sure that if the bag is new and is not a second then it will be covered. Years ago, I bought an all seasons raincoat from an ebay seller that sometime later developed a problem with some stitching coming loose around one of the pocket studs. Filson repaired it at no cost, with no questions asked about where it was purchased.
This post and the below image will give you an idea of how the zug-grained Grasmere boots tend to wear and age. My Grasmere boots have aged in a similar fashion, with the grain still very visible. I wonder how the grain would respond to the hot spoon/burning and bulling regimen so beloved in days past for cheaper leather ammo boots
If it has been rubbing against something for the best part 2 years, then it seems reasonable that it could wear through like that. If this were the case I would have thought that there would have been visible signs of wear prior to the hole fully appearing. Jeans often have metal rivets which could increase the rate of wear and acts as snag points.I'd hope that Filson (new or old) would repair rather than replace if that is the only damage.
Amazing transformation. Was there any temptation to buy a new pair, rather than do a full resole of that standard ?

How do the black bags fade with time and wear ?

I believe that the panniers are really meant to be removed and then carried, rather than being left on the bike as they are held on by snap-on fasteners.If you were going to leave them on the bike I think you would have to fettle with them in some way to more securely attach them to the bike, or at the very least least pass a lock cable through them.To be honest, when it comes to bikes and concerens about theft I'd think more about not making your bike stand out from the...
Pretty much
