Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 156

post #2326 of 4209
Sorry its taken so long for the pictures. Anyway, here are some pictures to show the size of the Medium travler.

I didnt pack it very full, but just to get a general idea of what it can hold I included:

1 pair of percells
12 t-shirts
5 pairs of chinos
1 sweater

And there is still plenty of room for undies, socks, and a dopp kit. Plus room in the exterior pockets.

I received the medium travel bag in blue. The colour is stunning, darker than I expected. Maybe not as classic as the otter green but I would get the same colour for the 256 and probably will.

This may have been listed already but just in case, I'm seeing 20% discount (25% if you have a store card) at Brooks Brothers today and tomorrow, including Filson items. Just ordered an original briefcase and medium travel bag for $416 instead of $520, plus shipping.

i'm in the same boat. i find the pullman perfect for longer trips, but just a tad too bulky for a 3 day weekend.

PSA: TheClymb.com is having a substantial Filson sale right now. All Wool Duffels are $150, Levi's tote $165, Rugged twill bucket bags $100. They have some other bags as well.

If you aren't a member of theClymb, PM me for a referral and you will get $15 off first order as well (spam note: I would get a $15 credit as well). EDIT: Not sure if you get a $15 credit at this point, it used to work that way but don't know how they do it right now.

The Filson sale generally is quite large - lots of clothing as well but given that this is a bag thread thought you guys might find the bag info the most relevant. I'm hemming and hawing over whether to buy the wool duffel. I have more duffel bags than I know what to do with at this point (none of them filson, however).

Great deal on some apparel. No Medium in the westlake vest...which is a bummer. Hopefully being on the wait list helps me out! I know it's a bit sketchy...but considering getting a small and trying to exchange at the Filson shop here in Seattle...

does anyone have any thoughts on using the medium duffle in real life?

I have one at home that I am considering returning as while it looks cool, i think functionally it may not be all that.
Seems a bit hard to find stuff inside of it, and is rather uncomfortable to lug around.

I also have an Rei Cargo Weekender http://www.rei.com/product/747934/rei-cargo-weekender-bag , which i currently use for all my weekend trips and it is alot more functional. U shaped zippers, mutliple compartments,lighter,etc.... and its only ~60 bucks. Of course its REI, and nylon. Not so cool looking.

I've had my medium duffle for about a year. While I love the material and everything, I am disliking it more and more because of its size and weight. I probably would've been fine with a small. I find it easy to pack but lugging it around an airport or city is a bitch.

Maybe I'm just a pussy but I might look for a lighter and smaller bag.

Thanks. when I got my 256 originally, I wasn't used to the weight of it, espcially when full of books and stuff. Is it the same deal with your duffle?

I have a large duffel, and I just sling it around the shoulder.

Yeah. It all depends what you use it for. If I needed it for a weekend golf trip, that's one thing. I fucking hated myself toting it around Asia for two weeks.

I've actually found that my Sportsman is uncomfortably heavy when I pack it, and hate using it as a carry-on now, and as an overnight/gym bag, which is basically all that I bought it to use for.

Been looking into a lighter bag. Saw the Qwstion Weekender and been thinking about it.
post #2340 of 4209
Bought the small duffle. Adequate for daily gym needs. But Might be a big small for anything more than an overnight trip. It's lighter than a 257 (less fabric overall due to having no compartments). If this bag is too heavy for you, you're probably just weak as the women on "the walking dead".
