Does anyone have any info on the Filson/Apolis Activism bag? - Page 6

post #76 of 291
Am highly anticipating this bag but seeing as it's an AW09 piece I'll have a while to wait. In the meantime, I'm looking to ditch the North Face backpack I currently carry to work every day, does anybody have recommendations for a messenger bag that can fit a Macbook Pro?

In the absence of suggestions I may just take the plunge on a Saddleback Leather bag... lol

We'll try to get some measurements and let everyone know how many we'll be able to get and the ship dates.

Also saw the bag in Vegas last week and agree with everything Detour said! I definitely will be picking one up when they drop, and it's worth every penny, in my opinion. This bag will last forever and is timeless so I find that the price tag is pretty justifiable.

Does anyone know what the white tag says? And how tightly it is attached?

They should be the same dimensions as the standard Filson 256.

I have no idea what it says but it should be able to be seamripped. It looks like the same size as the regular Filson tag which is normally put on an inside panel.

That is a load bearing tag ...

Cheers. Would have been nice to fit a 17" laptop into the bag, but may get one anyway.

Couple more things about the bag:

I'm sure everyone has figured out the measurements based off of the Filson Briefcase, but here are the measurements per Shea at Apolis:

16" W
12.5" H
4" D

Starts shipping 8/1 ish
Price is $396
and the tag is just stitched on...could be seam ripped off.

PM us with any other questions or pre-orders
thanks for the support

Can anyone else confirm the color of the bag? Detour mentioned above that it was navy, but I PMed Mauro, who said it was black. Both supposedly saw it in person. I don't know who to believe, haha.

Black. It's black, black, black.

When I saw it in person it looked black to me as well.

This whole thing reminds me of that "navy" EG bedford that was clearly black.

Navy is the new black.
post #87 of 291
Haha, sorry, didn't mean to assist in the spreading of rumors. Just wanted confirmation, as the color is make-or-break for me. Thanks, Mauro

The rumor was that Apolis originally pegged the bag to be navy but after catching "Passenger 57" on TBS the Partons quickly changed their minds.

Mauro's right, the bag is black...my fault
next time i should actually look at my order rather than my horrible pic on my phone

sorry for the confusion
