I use my Sportsman for alot of things, but when my wife has our baby (she's four months pregnant with our first) I just can't justify using it to tote around dirty diapers and spit-up rags. That will be a job left to my tin cloth field bag; which will still be a manly step up from the coach diaper bag she's getting for Christmas!

this is probably me being OCD but just got a 257 in the mail and it's pretty wrinkled out of the box. Any tips to unwrinkle?

Load stuff in it and start using it. The material will take care of itself. I bet by the end of the day the wrinkles will be gone...

using my 257 quite a bit on this trip

I was wondering if anyone had issues with the shoulder strap sliding off your shoulder? The shoulder strap pad is just a but too slick on the bottom side. Anyone try anything to get a bit more grip with it?

Yeah the strap is quite slippery; what I do is I just hang the strap across my body.

The strap is an optional accessory. Is it possible to go without? I only carry my bag for a total of 5 minutes every day and the strap would be an annoyance. I carry by the handle.

I took a piece of large grain sandpaper and just did a single swipe across, and then again to create a crosshatch pattern in the leather; that helped the get some grip, because otherwise as you've said it slips off too easily.

However, I should warn you that carrying these sorts of heavy things on your shoulder isn't recommended. My right shoulder can handle the weight a lot better than my left, which means I have more muscle on that side. It can also mess up your back.
