Im looking to upgrade my weekend/travel bag. Im deciding between the Filson Small Duffle and the Filson Medium Travel Bag. I want whatever bag to be acceptable carry-on luggage, and both of these are. Anyone know what the real difference between these bags is? Thanks.

No need to for this forum, and it will save a copy in your profile album if you want to pull it up later too.

A lot of people are using the medium duffle as airplane carry-ons as well, but not filling it to capacity.  So long as you can stuff it into the size-o-meter box, then you can generally get away with it.

Has anyone checked out the Filson bags that Brooks Brothers is now selling? I'd like to know if they're any different from standard Filson gear. It doesn't look like they've been modified, but who knows? But if Brooks is selling it, it will eventually go on sale, and I can use my discount card.

They look and are priced the same.

Hmm never noticed this on any of my bags and I usually wear blue oxfords or something similar.

Yup Filson can always be had by just calling Cranes or if you are in the Bay Area, Cable Car Clothiers. Both stores offer great service and it's really a shame to see so many members not call and just keep asking for deals.

I now only use my Filson duffle for road trips or one-flight check-in, and my Briggs & Riley for stops and gos travel.
50/50 on this one. It's still a hassle walking a few miles with a relatively filled bag but I still feel it works better especially when you are walking in crowded areas. No issue with duffle over shoulder or in front of me, no way I can walk a normal pace with rolling luggage.

I've used my duffle countless times over carry on capacity and it's never been an issue (Including RyanAir multiple times). Only time it doesn't fit on a plane's overhead compartment is on the tiny planes from Indiana to Chicago or something like that, but then they gate check everything so it's not an issue. I also got weighed the duffle weighed once in Asia but no matter what bag I was using I'd be over the carryon limit

That was the one I referred to in an earlier post that some think a used Filson is worth more than a new one.
