Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 127

I think 20% off and free shipping was the best deal I've ever seen, so if I were you I'd take advantage of it now.

Sounds good. One last question:

Do the field bags come with a can of wax or will I need to buy one myself?
post #1893 of 3971
It doesn't come with it. But honestly, unless you're gonna be roaming in the wild I doubt you'd need it :P
post #1894 of 3971
Funny you should mention that...

No, I'm just kidding it will just city use. I'll probably take it camping but I'll just buy the wax when I need it. Still can't seem to decide on that damn colour though...

Btw, has anyone found a place that sells Filson bags for better than 20% off or is that already quite good?

A few posts up someone mentions getting it at 25% off, but not sure if that is still current. Cable Car Clothiers also had one for possibly 30%, but that does not happen too often. I would say that you should get no less than a 15% discount at any time. Anything above that is decent.

Anyone seen this in person:

Tin Cloth Original Briefcase?

I wish I did but no. My local shops have a very small selection from the Filson line. I am thinking about going to Seattle in the upcoming weeks. If I do go I'll keep an eye out for that bag.

You'd think they will give leathet strap instead, after charging premium price.

Yeah. Kind of weird to see a nylon strap.

I would much prefer the leather strap as well. I heard you can buy one from Filson directly if you want but that's another $20-$40 that we shouldn't need to spend. Maybe they wanted to give some variety by adding the new strap (but maybe it's more likely they wanted to up the profit)?

I've got my first Filson bags on the way! 230 and 256 in Otter Green and 257 in Tan. I (probably) won't keep both the 256 and 257 so I'll probably do a local sale to some one in the Lower Mainland.

Im not sure if this has been posted before but I figured out a really simple way of shortening your Filson strap without punching any new holes in the leather. I simply detached the smaller section of the strap and connected the longer part to itself using a copper screw and post that I got at an art supply store for $1.



Also, yes that is a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Good Vibrations 12" single in the background.

Vinyl rules !

Good tip. Just an FYI for others looking for this type of screw and post is that they are also known as a chicago screw.

You get a leather shoulder strap with the below new design ... personally, not a fan ... prefer to look for the classic.png sign smile.gif

I think the wool under the flap is cool but I'm not a fan of it on the sides. I feel like it would work better as a nice semi-hidden accent.
