What Label is under the flap? "Made at filson" or "Might as well have the best"
I've bee eyeing the Frost River and Duluth briefcases. They seem to be worthy Filson replacements.
After about 18 months of daily use, I began to notice some things about my 257 that I wish were different. So instead of finding a different bag, I made the desired modifications. The first being the removal of the flap. In California where it never rains I didn't need the added protection. It also always felt like an extra step to get inside the bag, so I wanted it gone. I originally took it to my cleaner to make the modifications, but they said their machines couldn't...
Does anyone have pics of used navy bags? I want to see ho the fabric fades.
They're two separate models.Original med duffle http://www.filson.com/products/duffle-bag-medium.70222.html?fromCat=true&fvalsProduct=luggage/duffle-bags&fmetaProduct=1019/New med duffle http://www.filson.com/products/duffle-medium.70315.html?fromCat=true&fvalsProduct=luggage/duffle-bags&fmetaProduct=1019/The style numbers and dimensions are different.
Yes it is permanently attached. I do leather work and stitched it myself.
I'll buy one when they get marked down!
Price drop. Bag also has added handgrip.
I was going to downsize from my larger 257 to the smaller 256, but after investing the last 18 months in the larger bag, I decided to keep it. So I'm selling a new otter green Filson Style# 256 briefcase. I loaded it up once and carried to the office and switched everything back when I got home. Comes with unattached tags. The bag is a newer version with the red "Made at Filson" tag. Also has added hand grip from a 257.
Was more wax applied? I've never seen one develop a shining like that
