This is a casual office environment so I could pull off either color.

Get the otter green! I don't find it bland at all, it's actually a very nice colour in person. The lighting that stores use in their photos don't do it justice.

I would recommend emailing them. In my experience they have great customer service.

Agreed; the Otter Green looks great in person. I wouldn't count out Tan even though you're wearing khakis all the time but the OD might make for a nice contrast.

My experience with them is that they will simply order another from Filson. I've ordered Filson bags from them that aren't even on their site.

I agree 100%. I have not seen a picture that does the OG justice. It is really a great color in person and tends to be very versatile in its ability to match any outfit.

 

As an added bonus, it tends to stay a little cleaner looking when I travel. I started with a lot of tan pieces in my collection and I am starting to shift my focus to OG. In fact, the last four Filson bags I have purchased have all been in the Otter.

+1 for Otter Green. I have a 257 in OG that I love.

I'm interested in getting a zippered tote, and that would be in OG. As far as I see, the main use for that would be for trips to the beach/park and other places where it would rest on dirty surfaces, and I think the OG would do a much better job of concealing that than the sin/cos.

I have a 257 in tan though, and it's brilliant. I have a green Barbour Beaufort I use during fall, and often use dark green pants - so the tan has a lot better contrast to my regular outfits. It's also dark enough to work with chinos during summer, so it's a great color for me.

Great choice on the Otter for the 261 Zipper Tote. I originally bought a 261 in Tan from the local Filson dealer, but it had some problems with the handles, so when I went to exchange it, I happen to see the OG version and I was hooked. It is one of my most-used Filson bags because it is so versatile and can haul so much. I use it to carry binders/files to work and (in the alternative) can fit about 2-3 days clothes for short trips. It is such a cool bag:)

Yup. I have the 257 in tan and the Zippered tote in otter green. Really happy with my color choices.

Out of curiosity, how much was it?

Hi all, I'm currently contemplating between the 256 n 232 (tan) n needs some feedbacks. Capacity wise I think both will suit my needs. My only concern is that will the 256 look too formal for a student? Someone usually dress in jeans and polo and occasionally in shirts. The 232 on the other hand is more casual.

Btw, anyone knows if there is any upcoming Xmas or yr end sales from filson?

I eventually sent a message to the Sportco customer service asking about it. However, before they got a chance to reply me, I went ahead to order the out-of-stock Brown Medium Field Bag as the sale was ending soon and made payment for it. Thereafter, I got a reply saying that I could not order items that were stated unavailable. I then replied by saying I had already gone ahead to order. It's been a few days and I still have not gotten a reply. I'm just surprised they weren't able to order for me in another color and how long they are taking to reply.

I think a 256 will suit you needs better. It has a bunch of little pockets to organize and separate your things whereas the 232 is just one big open space. As for the look I would say the 256 is less casual that the 232 but still casual. I think it will suit your style well. The real question now is Tan or OG smile.gif
