I got the grey zip bag. Though I was underwhelmed in the first few minutes I saw it, it really grew on me and I like it a lot. I also really appreciate the packaging- you can tell these guys love design. Is it recommended to wax the canvas? It doesn't seem like this would hold up well if I get caught in the rain. Does anyone have experience waxing canvas like this? Any advice would be appreciated-
I received my 256 today. As many others, I was concerned about choosing between the 256 and 257. If you're going to use it on your shoulder, get the 256. I was surprised at how much it fit... if I were to put anything more, it would fuck up my shoulder and I'd be better off getting a backpack. I think a quote found earlier in the thread perfectly summarizes the 256 vs 257 debate. If you're working, get the 256. If you're a student, get the 257. Is the bag good to go from...
Thanks for the advice- you're right about the max profit being 100% with shorting. Another bad thing about shorting is that losses can theoretically be infinite.I should have specified that I see Apple falling in two years or so. They'll continue to have strong numbers through these next several quarters since they're still riding the wave of innovation they've enjoyed, but I can't see them realistically growing at the same rate in the long-term. If you look at the...
I want to short Apple. I think it'll go down in the intermediate/long-run. Having been interested in the tech hardware world for a while, I see Apple's sky-high market share as an imminent sign of its downfall. To be considered the most valuable company in history within such a volatile industry is not the best news: ask Microsoft, back when it was the most valuable at the height of the 2000 bubble. With the gap left by Jobs, the pace of innovation is slowing within...
Cool. Thanks for the responses concerning the handgrip. My question was more about whether it's feasible to get the handgrip installed by a local leather craftsman but judging from the responses, it seems like it's a safer bet to get it done by Filson.
Can anybody comment on the handgrip on the 256/257? I'll have to wait two weeks from Crane's in order for them to get the brown handgrip 256 from Filson. However, they said they could send a 256 the next day with an unattached Filson handgrip and I could try to find someone who could do it for me. Any advice on this? Does attaching the hand grip look like an easy installation / is it merely stitched onto one of the straps? Handgrip pics would be amazing, as well as any...
Does anybody know the intricate differences between the 3sixteen+21BSP and the ST-100x? I opted for the 3sixteen+21BSP and while they seem like fine jeans, they are not as tapered as I'd imagined them to be. Were they built off the same silhouette as the ST? I hope they don't stretch as I get more wear on them. Other than that, the denim looks like it'll break in nicely. I was told that these unsanforized jeans were made in the same mills as Samurais. Any other info about...
To 256 owners, do you find this true?Thanks!
I've just finished up school and am now exploring the tech/start-up industry now (a.k.a entrepreneurial endeavor) so my requirements are pretty flexible. I just need something that's versatile, durable and comfortable- and preferably not ugly. I thought the rucksack might fit the description.The briefcase seems great but I've always had some shoulder problems with messengers and it doesn't seem as grab-and-go as the rucksack. Maybe I'll get a Filson briefcase further down...
Aside from Crane's, are there any ongoing sales in which the Filson rucksack can be had for a good price? Also- any recommendations on whether to go with the tan or green? How comfortable is the bag itself?
