New "limited release" bags are up on the Filson website now. The portland store has some of the light briefcases and they feel like they're made of thin pleather.

Unlike the other two bags, I would not be confident that my gear will stay dry if I submerge this thing in water. This pack should work fine for my...
  Yes. Once purchased by Bedrock Manufacturing in January 2012, FIlson nearly immediately started building goods with cheaper materials while increasing prices to consumers. "Old" Medium Duffle - http://www.filson.com/products/duffle-bag-medium.70222.html - $345 built with only Rugged twill and a bridle leather shoulder strap "New" Medium duffle - http://www.filson.com/products/duffle-medium.70315.html - $365 - some of the 22oz twill has been replaced with 8.5oz cotton....
Filson just put a bunch of stuff on sale. It may be time for me to snag the large leather tote.
