The brochures measure about 12"x1.5"x10" in a ring file format.
Would the 256 or 257 be more appropriate for the above?

What do you sell? The size of the samples may affect our recommendations. Though I would say if they were not too big the 256 should be fine.

If they are 1.5" 3-ring binders, the 256 will fit but you wouldn't have much room for anything else, much less a laptop. 257 is likely the better choice.

Yeah I am looking at it again and if you need to carry two brochures at 1.5" a piece, the laptop and the samples may not fit.

From what I have heard the large travel bag is rather cumbersome as a result of its size and design, and is certainly less carry-on friendly (while many have argued that when not to full capacity, the medium duffle may be well suited as a carry-on). The large travel bag does have greater accessibility thanks to its outer compartments.
I'm looking at a medium travel bag, medium duffle, and a sportsman bag myself.

The Sportsman bag is a Godsend. I bought it specifically for overnight travel. It's now replaced my small duffle as a gym bag and my large carry-on bag (which really wasn't that large) as a weekend bag.

noted on the remarks, I sell construction goods for water proofing so the samples are about 6"x8mm x2" on average. the thing is i need to carry around a couple of them as well because of the various profiles.

As for the laptop i might just get a 10" tablet instead. or just swap around a bit. the laptop is a non issue. i for see the bulk of what i would be carrying around would be the files and samples as well as stationary and a daily planner

I'd say that you might be able to get away with the 256, but it's going to be a tight squeeze.

so i've been debating getting the Filson Zippered Tote for a while now.. does anyone use it with a macbook pro? i have a 15" model and was wondering if it fits in there, granted i'd be carrying a notebook/textbook along with it. 

 

edit: wont be using exclusively for MBP, just wondering if it would be able to fit it inside incase I decide to bring it along

Just picked up the Filson 1 1/4 in. leather belt in black with stainless buckle - it is great! One of the best casual belts I have purchased. Highly recommended!

Filson belts are great. I love the double belts on heavyweight jeans and trousers.

I have one, but no MBP. If you check earlier in the thread I think I took pictures of it next to my otter 256. The opening on the zippered tote is at least 44cm across.

Are Filson bags sold in Brook Brothers stores or just online?

Can't speak for smaller stores, but they have them in the Madison Ave. store.

Just picked up a Double Mackinaw Cruiser. I've owned a couple tin cloth jackets and quite a few bags; but I've got to say that this is, hands down, one of the highest quality articles of clothing I've ever purchased. We've only had a couple of cold and wet days since I purchased it, but it definitely did not disappoint!

Trying to decide between the Filson 256 in Tan or Brown for a business casual outfit.





At first I was leaning towards the brown since I thought the tan might look too "casual," but the tan looks more striking in pictures. However, the tan seems like it might get dirty easily. Any thoughts?

Also, if you get the handgrip installed on the 256, it's stitched onto the handles and can't be removed?

It all depends on your workplace. The tan looks awesome and gets a nice, rugged patina, but is for me a little to casual. The green was perfect fort me, and almost looks brand new after over a year with almost everyday use.
