Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 142

post #2116 of 4405

First post! Have been a lurker for some time and am pleased to be adding to the forum.

 

Just broke down and spent some of my fantasy football championship winnings to purchase a tan 256 briefcase with a handgrip from Hilton's Tent City. Got 15% off. Think it will so well with my small tan duffle (220).

 

Plan to use the 256 as my everyday bag commuting in to NYC from CT on the train. I usually leave my laptop in the office so it'll hold my kindle, an umbrella, a black and red notebook, my Field Notes notebook, a manila folder of papers, pens, business cards, a piece of fruit, my iPad...and on the train ride home my empty coffee tumbler. Looks like it should also hold my laptop on the days I need to bring it home. 

 

Now I can't wait to get it and start breaking it in.

I just googled this thread to see if anyone had thoughts on the tin cloth black briefcase

I just just put my order in for one. I'm dying to get it

Anyone get one yet?

Just a "FYI" for anyone thinking about visiting the Filson Outlet up in Burlington, WA.  I was just there on Friday, 01/04 and they are nearly wiped out of anything in Filson's luggage line.  I think they may have had 3 bags total.  Not sure if there was a Holiday rush on these items or what...

 

I'll try to stop by again in the next couple of weeks and see if they have re-stocked at all.  Not sure what their supply chain is for seconds.  Don't imagine it's all that consistent so I would be surprised to see a quick re-stock.

 

Regards,  Dean

Was applying lp and some of it got on my 70257. There's a small unsightly black stain now, any recommendations for removing it? Thanks.

Very much digging my new black ops gym bag:


I work out at my office and this is perfect to transport a change of clothes, computer, and entertainment for the shuttle ride. This will also be my go-to carry-on.

What color are these two bags? Do you find the small duffel adequate for a 2-4 day trip or would a medium size be better?

I currently have a brown original briefcase. What would u guys do - stick with brown for the duffle or go for another color?

What is the best price on the medium travel bag? Hanks currently has them for $262.50 is that a decent price?

Hi Everyone,

 

Thanks to all of your Filson pictures, and being addicted to items with great craftsmanship, I decided to take the plunge and look for a 256.

 

That is, until my wife surprised me with an odd Sebago X Filson bag!

 

 

 

Looks to be a 257, but with a leather storm flap and a lightly embossed "Sebago." 

 

I'm somewhat thinking it is too big for my frame (5'7"), but hoping to break it in. 

 

Cheers, and this is my first post, hoping to be more educated in style :-)

A few photos of my new 256 on it's "maiden voyage" into the wild from my recent business trip to Zurich.





Very pleased with my purchase. Plenty big enough for me (glad I read this entire thread and went 256 over 257) and glad I had them add the hand grip.

So I ordered the brown medium travel bag from hanksclothing a few days ago. I called them today to check my order and apparently the brown medium travel bag color has been discontinued so I had to cancel my order :(

If anyone's interested in a used tan 257, I just listed mine in B&S.

Need a larger Filson bag? I love my 256, but if you want more space, a padded compartment, and an included rolled leather handle keeper, check this out:

Filson canvas padded computer bag: $220 down from ($325), which is the same price as the excellent original Filson briefcase.

Full feature list
  • Cotton canvas padded zip-top water repellent laptop briefcase
  • Two bridle leather carry handles with double-snap closure and snap button storm flap
  • Removable adjustable leather shoulder strap with brass-plated roller buckle and leather pad
  • Two-way brass zipper with leather pulls
  • Two exterior open side pockets, front exterior zip pouch pocket, and two small exterior end utility pockets
  • Two interior full-length open pockets, one dense foam padded compartment for laptop
  • Interior brass key clasp
  • Double bottom for heavy loads
  • Meets carry-on requirements
