wow.gif I didn't even know those existed. If you find any suitable strap pads, please share! Thanks.

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

Think I'm too late, but I can go two months probably on a medium duffle, so it's definitely good for a weekend

Very nice. I wish they had those with chest and belly protectors, I'd have one in a heart beat. I have had the Filson collar and lead for quite a few years now. Of course they are great and have held up well to rough conditions.

I bought a Brown and Green and only will be keeping one of them. I was planning to return the other but I could also sell it to you.

Anyone have any advice on a tan 257 with a darker suit? I've been waffling on pulling the trigger and generally prefer the tan over the brown (not sure about the monotone look) or otter green, but I'm looking to make this my everyday bag aside from some concern of pairing it with a dark grey pinstripe.

I think either way the pairing of 256 with suit is going to look more casual. The dressier the suit looks the more of a contrast this will be.

It also depends on how your work environment is.

IMO for the 256 and possibly all Filson with formality from most to least, the colors would be brown, green, then tan, but it doesn't swing too much as we are talking about a canvas bag here.

Got my Filson order and decided to keep the brown. Before sending the Green 256 back, does anyone want to buy it for 25% off plus cost of shipping? I also have a Charcoal Greenwood jacket in small that I'll sell for 25% off plus shipping:

Got my Mackinaw Cruiser and 257 today from Joe's. Settled on the 257 after spending a good while at the Filson shop in Seattle. It's huge but at the same time (maybe because it's still new and not broken in) still is thin enough to carry with a light load to work and back. For those on the fence, I personally think it's worth getting the 257 over the 256 to have the extra space. I was on the fence between the 257 and 258 and found the 258 to simply be way too wide to take to the office everyday. Chose the otter green because I liked the subtle contrast between the canvas and leather. Tan looks great worn but didn't want to match my Levi x Filson trucker jacket...

 

On another note, I mentioned that I picked up a very, very well used 256 last weekend off of craigslist. Snapped some photos. One of the most worn Filson briefcases I've seen in person...appears to be a factory second X out. The woman I purchased it from was a geologist. Terrible lighting, sorry. But it looks between a tan and otter green. It's so worn I can't even tell. It had a very strong grease/crayon scent to it. It was so worn I hosed it down and even threw it in the wash and dryer. It's been sprayed with half a can of Febreze as well. Still has the musk. Oh well. Enjoy.

Hi Liquidus, 

For the 256: 25% off the MSRP price or do you mean 25% off the sale price (what you paid)?
