Anyone got any real world images of the #70025 messenger bag ?

Not sure I like it in black.

I found tan colour great in many pictures seen on line but not so good in reality.

Thanks for the pic. Now I just have to decide Brown vs Green.

Either colour is fantastic, but the green is going to hide a lot more of the dirt and smudges that the bag will accumulate over time. I tend to prefer the otter green for this reason. If you tend to look after your bags - don't put it down on wet pavements, etc - then the tan may be OK.

Ebay & craigslist are going to be the most obvious places to look unless you are near a Filson outlet store who sometimes have some interesting stuff.

I think he is trying to decide between the green and brown. It's personal preference at that point. I don't think that the brown or green will hide any better than the other.

curious to see how filson apparel looks on person

I just got a mackinaw cruiser as well.  I'm normally a 39 or 40 size chest and the 36 fits fine with a sweater.  These things are enormous, so I really recommend sizing down unless you plan to wear a live preserver or something underneath.

I was just looking at the Filson Outerwear stuff at Joe's. Anyone seen the Greenwood jacket in person? The charcoal one seems like a good pairing with jeans.

Sale is live now!

Just picked up an Otter Green 257. Debated the 258 but think it's too heavy/wide to carry by hand everyday. 257 should be plenty big. Ended up getting a Mackinaw Cruiser too! Had to resist buying more...

Thanks for the heads up. Ordered a 256 and Greenwood jacket.

Anyone want to sell me an unused strap? They are asking 70 bucks for a replacement :\

Also, any recommendations for a duffle bag that can hold clothes for a weekend? Is the medium large enough for this?

Arg. Killing me with that temptation. I love that jacket. Tried it on in the store - seems to run large, at least for me, YRMV. Forest all day baby.

I think this is the largest discount Joe has provided since I first got my zippered tote from them about 21 months ago. Only discount that has beaten this was the Cable Car coupon for 30% off they had back in January.
