post #2206 of 4079

Hi, enjoy the infor from this thread.  I appreciate it.  Does anybody know where I can buy the black label 257 (other than Italy)?  I like the look of this ver better than my ordinary 257.  Thank you for your help

My sister has been begging me to give her my Oil-Finish Small Duffle. Feels appropriate to hand it off to her, now trying to decide between the small regular duffle or the medium travel bag.

 

Anybody trying to get rid of either? :) Don't like the way the large carry-on or Pullman open (plus they're way too big for my needs) and the Sportsman's was just a bit too small for my needs (ending up selling mine)

 

The inner (and outer) pockets of the Travel bag seem great, but it seems like it may be a little awkward when not packed to capacity and it seemed awkwardly tall. Anyone have more experience with it?

 

Wasn't trying to buy a new bag...but you know, family first ;)

I just received my 257 in brown. Brown was my third choice but the place I called was having a 30% off sale and was out of every other color. When I hesitated, he dropped the price another 10%. How could I say no! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So far I like the color. Of course I've only had it for about 30 minutes so that may change. biggrin.gif

Here is a picture I took of it after I filled it up. It does a good job of standing on it's own. The color is pretty accurate, at least on my monitor.

Looks good man! Also seems like you got a great deal too!

It was actually a total of 30% off not 40%. It still was a good deal I think. smile.gif

Hi,

 

I recently bought a filson bag on their site, it seems the leather on the right side of my bag is more wear out and old than on the left side. Did they send me a second instead of a new product? Have anyone of you had the same problem?

 

Thanks for your help :)

When I first received my 256 briefcase, it had the same issue. One handle strap was visibly more worn and thinner than the other handle.
You should definitely ask Filson to replace it; I'm sure they'll do it no questions asked.
I took mine to the Seattle store and showed it to one of the managers and once she felt the difference, she immediately went and grabbed 3 other brand new briefcases for me to choose a replacement. They have some proper customer service.

Ultimately, that is pretty much what the straps are going to end up looking like after use. If it bothers you then call them up and ask about a replacement.

I've contacted Filson's online customer service. They told me that the leather on the left has to be broken in and then both will look the same. Well I guess I have to wait and use my bag normally. Or next time buy it in a store and not thorugh Filson's website.

 

I wonder who has lost his time to open and close the right handle around 1000 times before dispatching the product.

 

Despite that minor defect I'm completely satisfied with my bag and its quality.

 

Thanks for your comments :)

While technically true there is no reason this should negate a refund. If you're not satisfied push them to take it back, I doubt they'll refuse.
