Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 94

post #1396 of 3916
Anyone still need/want photos of the 257? Filled with?
It's a bit big for my taste.

1. Does the 256 fit a 13" MBP?
2. Anyone have a tan 256 w/handle for trade for my tan 257? Almost new.
3. Anyone have a tan rucksack for trade for my tank 257? Almost new.

So the 256 doesn't come with the connecting piece between on the handles anymore?  It looks like the 257 does.

Yes - it will fit the 13" MBP without a problem. The new 15" retina MBP on the other hand is a very tight squeeze.

No, but Filson can add one for you, as can some of the retailers. Have a look a few pages back where this was discussed as an option when ordering.

I fit a 17" MBP into my 256. No laptop sleeve or additional padding, but it will fit in.

Would like to see more photos of the rucksack tho.

Thanks milw! I'll give them a call and see if they can give me the "part number" to order one.

How sure are you? I'm getting the retina and the 256. The 257 definitely seems too big.

How sure? I have a 256 and a 15" retina MBP. When I put the retina MBP in either of the internal side pockets, it takes some manipulation to get in - like I said, it's a tight squeeze. If you are going to put the MBP in the center compartment it should go in fine but for me, that would make the bag a lot less useful for me. If you keep putting the MBP in the internal side pocket it'll probably loosen a little over time

If the 257 is too heavy you might consider cutting it down. By removing the interior pockets, cutting down the shoulder strap to be only as long as you need it to be ad by not using the shoulder strap pad you could save some weight. Outer pockets could also be carefully removed to get to weight of 256.

PM me if you have a tan rucksack or 256 for sale OR trade for a like new tan 257.
post #1407 of 3916
Buffalowing, I just sent you a pm re 256.
post #1408 of 3916
I've decided to buy the 256. Do you know where I can get one with added (257) handles, fair price and shipping to Europe? Thanks.


Edit: I think I'll get it from Cranes. I have e-mailed them about how to proceed with payment for the added handles. Not sure of what color to get though...

Anyone know where you can pick up the navy special edition briefcase for a good price? Found one place carrying it, but no way am I going to drop $500 on one.

350

Also, is it based on the 256 or 257?

Looks like a 257 because of the strap handles and wider width.
