It's a carpenter's pencil which you sharpen with a pocket knife.

Kind of cool to see what numbers people are getting. Not that the numbers really mean anything (they're not exactly proofs), but will be cool to see what other numbers are out there (including Top 10 #s).

How weather resistant are these? I'm thinking about getting one but won't any rainfall soak right through? Edit: Here seems as good as place as any, are these bags waxed? I might just go for a Filson 257/7 in Tan (sooo much cheaper) but does anybody know how easily they stain? Tan looks great but I'm leaning towards the Appolis in large part because it seems like dark wouldn't show stains as well.

I don't think these bags are waxed, and I think you're right about the water soaking through. Sorry I can't attest to the staining - fortunately that hasn't happened yet.

Also, I know they advertise these things as computer bags, but if you're going to use it for such, make sure you check the bag dimensions AND understand that the zipper into the main compartment is very industrial strength. When I was putting my 15" MacBook Pro in, it would rub up against the teeth of the zipper, scaring me a little each time.

Anyway, keep that in mind anyone interested in the bag, and hopefully someone can give you a better answer regarding staining false!

Good point guys - thanks! I suppose a nice slim sleeve should still be narrow enough to fit inside the bag.
