The strap looks incredibly uncomfortable, though. I'll have to look around for something wider and more padded to potentially swap it out for.

Does anyone know about how heavy they are? The Filson web site doesn't say.

It's a lot heavier than a typical nylon or canvas bag. Strap is ok I used to carry 15 pounds when teaching with strap and didn't really have any issues. Not as comfy as a padded strap but not bad

And buckles and stuff technically you don't need to buckle any of them I never did and never zipped neither and nothing fell out

Filsons are heavy and really uncomfortable imo.

Maybe something from Mismo or Porter? If you don't need to carry a ton of stuff get something really light and comfortable to wear. I used a Filson briefcase for a few years b/c I had to carry a full day's worth of stuff to work (laptop, stationary, lunch, etc) and my neck would kill during the commute and it would rumple up the shoulders of my jackets + shirts

Anybody know who can make a bespoke Atraskhan coat with real fur interior and lapels?

Never been impressed with the quality feel of Mismo.

How about nanamica?

Thanks, good to know. I have some back/neck problems, so lighter is better for me. I'll take a look at Mismo and Porter, maybe shelve the Filson idea for the time being.

That's saying something, you have so much to choose from!

It's true that the Filsons are heavy though. An empty 257 will weigh as much as a nylon bag semipacked.

well, i use it daily and i love it in every way. so its a strong contender.

Like I said Nanamica looks nice
