Has anyone removed the outer pockets of a 257 to save weight and make the bag more efficient? I am considering cutting mine down.

I have a 257 and use the pockets all the time. How much weight would you save by bastardizing the bag like that?

Each to their own I guess, but you have to think maybe the OP chose the wrong bag if they need to save some small amount of weight like that. Maybe a 256 would have been better ?

I already cut away the key ring and interior pockets and noticed big difference but the bag is still inefficient. Considering cutting away the top flap that covers the zipper as it serves no purpose. May keep outer pockets.

I've seen it on guys that are 6'0 and skinny and it looked OK. Not sure what your definition of big is.

If you did that you almost have yourself a zippered tote.

You've posted in the 1K thread and the Saddleback thread about how you chopped up or want to chop up a product to save weight and make things more efficient. Post the pics of your butcher work. I don't think you have done what you claim.

Really strange thing to lie about though :S

I was quoted $377 - 30% ($113.1 off) for this:
http://www.filson.com/products/oregon-trail-jacket.10067.html

and $77 - 30% ($23.10 off) for this :

http://www.filson.com/products/oregon-trail-jacket-hood.10139.html

Still a little cheaper then the next best deal, but not really 30% off as mentioned before considering there is a mark up on the items.

So my total cost for the combo would be:

Cable Car: $317.80 plus shipping
Joe's Sporting Goods (Next time they have a 20% sale): $325.60

Still a good deal considering its slightly better than 20% off retail...albeit a bit misleading on their part.

Why the hell would you buy something and then butcher it up. That's effed up. I use the key ring and outer pockets quite frequently. But whatev's - its your money

I can't seem to post pics from my Mac. I have chopped some down to save weight. I carry a lot and need efficient products. If I can figure out how to post pics I will. Crane the boots I bought from you a few months ago.

I'm not sure I even understand why you would do what you say you are doing. You are talking miniscule amounts of weight here. That and everything you chop up no longer has any kind of warranty.

If they don't have it in stock they can order, but as noted earlier you probably won't be getting 30% off list.
