I have been e-mailing Filson over the last few days and got some good info from them. It looks like the over priced proxy service for the bags is not needed for much longer for those that want them. According to Filson the Red Label bags will be sold in the US through Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom and Paragon. They did not give a specific date, but said to keep an eye on their websites in the near future.
Nordstrom does not have the red label items online, but they DO have the 256 and 257 in both tan and brown at the moment. For those that are looking. Just one of the many public services that I provide.

After that I got n more word from Filson and none of those places carry the briefcase. They do carry the totes and the zippered totes.

And their prices are actually the same as the original filson tote bags.

also see my previous post regarding the red label:

"I got the navy version and sold it a week later - it's softer but you'll see every bit of dust on it and it's very hard to clean. never happens with the otter green version. also, the leather feels a lot cheaper - almost like fake leather."

Is the tan leather not bridle leather?
post #1464 of 4315
It is bridle leather according to Filson. I actually went to a Steven Alan store to check the bags out. I personally think the leather on the red label bags is roughly comparable to that on the original filson bags. But the canvas is definitely thinner. I think the red label uses 18 oz canvas versus the 22 oz canvas on the original filson bags.

Do you guys install the grips or are these just for customers who want to install the grip themselves?
post #1467 of 4315

I got my blue 257 red label for around 270€ off ebay.

Don't know why so cheap but it is definately a real one!

As for other places to get Filson, I've gotten a good amount of stuff at Cable Car Clothiers in SF, just give them a call.

 

A personal shopper seems a bit extreme.  There are plenty of stores with excellent customer service, I shop at many of them.  This was a pretty simple case, however, Unionmade entered in to a contract that they did not fulfill and then jerked me around for weeks.  So I will always recommend avoiding them.

post #1469 of 4315

I'm a rookie in regards to Filson. But which bag would you recommend for traveling for a week or so, the medium or the large duffel? 

post #1470 of 4315

I just picked up the medium duffle and it is very large.  Larger than a carry-on size limit if filled to capacity.  The "large" size would be for well over a week of travel (at least the way I pack). 

 

Also, I think if you filled the large duffle up, it would be way heavier than you would be willing to carry.  Although, perhaps you are some sort of muscle man?  I've seen pictures of people carrying the large size, but it always looks less than half full. 

 

 

These guys say the large is for "a month-long trip" http://www.formatmag.com/news/filson-large-duffle-bag/
