Did you mean color or bits of the leather? I've never actually noticed either happening, but doesn't mean it's not happening.

If you’re looking to buy something from Filson, then please take a look at Hilton Tent City. Use code FSNREG11 to get 15% off all Filson products they stock. Plus, you get free shipping on orders over $50. That’s pretty much the cheapest price on Filson products you’ll find on the web (and, yes, I spent a lot of time looking). Their site is a little old, but they delivered quickly and I didn’t have any problems with them. They even have Filson’s “Red Label” tote bags in stock.

Colour from the leather. I suppose if you're wearing a rather dark flannel underneath, it's not noticeable. But a lightweight button-up or light coloured t-shirt will see transfer from the armpits up to the top of the shoulder.

lol, I think the guy that said the white scuffs are "white out" is making fun of me.  But I think it really is paint transfer from a poorly painted drywall wall.

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking for a used medium or duffle in either tan or brown.

 

I know I know... I was just criticizing the duffle a couple of weeks ago, but this is a gift for my brother-in-law and he is dead set on the medium duffle.

 

If you have one you'd be willing to let go of for a reasonable price or are looking to trade for something, PM me.

 

I'm having a tough time finding a used medium duffle on Craigslist and Ebay.

 

Thanks alot!

Which size duffel is best for short trips (weekend...up to a week). Medium or large? I don't really have anywhere to go to compare sizes.

Worth a PM...

I PMed him. He said he'd get back to me after the weekend. Haven't heard back yet. My Bro-in-law's birthday isn't until the first of September, so I'm not on a time crunch.

 

I've got a green Large Wheeled Duffle I was going to give him, but he hasn't stopped talking about how much he wants a medium duffle for the last couple of weeks, so I figured I'd try to find one of those instead.

I had gotten a PM back from huskeyzealot, he wanted $200 for the tan medium duffle plus shipping.  You can get a new one for $250 shipped, so probably not worth it to buy used.

Some people think they are worth more used. At least one ebay seller I saw this past week. I am not one of these people.

raney,

Looks like you're in the Seattle area... have you thought about a trip up to the beautiful Skagit Valley (Burlington) to peruse the Filson Outlet?  Last time I was in there, they had tons of various luggage items.... can't be sure you'd find the medium duffle though.  Might be worth a call ... (360)503-1897

Thanks to everyone that gave feedback on the rucksak. I tried it on today and found I didn't like how it rode on my back. Disappointing. I thought I might be able to get by with a medium field bag, but I opted out. Bummed I don't have something a bit more portable for my next trip, but I will manage with my sportsmen and new wheeled duffle.

@raneym305- I have used the medium duffle in the past, but depending on the type of travel your brother-in-law does the wheels may be doing him a big favor. If you have to tote the duffel for any distance, and assuming you aren't in the field, the wheels win.

Yeah, I checked it out last week. They didn't have any 2nd medium duffles. Everything was vintage. I'll just keep looking around.

 

Speaking of the Burlington Store: If there's anyone planning on making up trip up here to the Great Northwest, I highly recommend you go to both the Burlington store and The Flagship store!

post #1545 of 4170

Ahhhh, yeah.  I hadn't thought of the fact that virtually everything they (the Outlet) have for luggage is "vintage" vs. seconds.  I didn't see much of anything in the luggage area that looked at all new - as far as I can recall.
