It is a 257, which is what I was talking about originally. I don't have a 256

Wow, never realized there was even a pocket there on either of my 257s shog[1].gif

And now I wish I had a 257 (in addition to my 256)! Thanks a lot...

oh, because your description was in response to organizing the 256.

I've been trying to figure out how to organize my smaller items for my 256, as they currently just rest in the center in an unorganized manner.

Pretty much every day I use both end pouches on my 258. Figured it was better to have more space out of the gate rather then wish I would had gotten something else down the road. It was a good choice for me.

Agreed. I wasn't carrying my 256 yesterday or Wednesday, but I can't imagine fitting anything in there save for a pen or maybe a business card holder. There isn't much room for anything in that pocket.

Some of my Filson stuff...



top to bottom:
pullman - otter green
medium duffel - tan
zipperd tote - brown
medium duffel (2) - otter green
small duffel- otter green
257 - brown
suit cover - tan

trying to unload both of the tan bags, med duffel is near perfect (only used twice...bottom is just a tad dirty, otherwise like new) and suit cover is in good condition, used maybe ten times...PM me if interested

ooh, I bet you could fit one of those expandable hand fans in the 256 side pocket! It may not be socially acceptable for men to carry one of those though...

My medium travel bag has developed some weird white scuff marks. I'm not sure how I got these, but I was wondering what would be a recommended solution for reducing their appearance.

Hi, I'm looking for a Filson sportsman in good order. Will need to be shipped to the uk. If anyone has one for sale I'm happy to buy At a reasonable price. Filson bags are a rare commodity over here thanks. Please let me know if you have one preferably in tan.

those scuff marks are from poorly painted drywall which you must have brushed up against.  just rub it out with your finger.

Hi. The white is liquid paper also known as white out. You got this on your bag la week at the office. Rag with light force will remove.

Magic Eraser works wonders for this

Any experiences or feedback on the rucksack? I have typically used my sportsman bag as a smaller, more portable kit than my duffle. I really like the sportsman due the many compartments. But I am looking for something that may be easier to get around with for day excursions. I like the idea of the rucksack for a camera, laptop, water bottle and other sundries, but would appreciate any insights from current or former owners.

Thanks.
