After owning a 256 for a year, I sold it to my brother and got a 257 as the replacement. The widths of the two bags really change the overall silhouette. The 256 is shaped more like a traditional briefcase because of its thinness. The disadvantage of this is that it does not stand up on its own as easily as the 257 does. It also has difficulty holding wide items. If you fit too much stuff into it, it becomes a bloated tick. The 257 is shaped more like a messenger bag, at...
According to a Filson customer review on 5/31/12, the three open pockets inside the 257 are now sewn shut. I've had the 257 since 2009 and this has been my only complaint.

It has the advantage of being one of Filson's largest bags that is still carry-on compliant. But what puts it over the top are the 4 outside pockets and 2 inside pockets (which I can easily...
I bought a Filson 246 back in March, which I use during weekends. I noticed that the shoulder pad is showing significantly more wear than the shoulder pad from my 257, which has been used almost daily for two years! Now granted, the 246 is used for much heavier loads, but the 257 shoulder pad is still practically smooth, while the 246 shoulder pad has tiny bits of leather peeling. Is this normal wear?
