8. Go back to the thread and read about how X thing will last for years and years and years.
9. Figure it's not so bad, if you can one day find it on sale.
10. Put it on a growing list of things to get.

wow, so classic.

Is it necessary to treat the leather on a filson bag? I've had my 256 for a few months now.
post #246 of 4407
forgive me for not paging back through the entire thread, but can someone tell me, isn't there a filson tote with a zip top?
post #247 of 4407
Yes, they do make one with a zip top. I believe you can source it form Crane's, one of your board affiliates.

Large carry on, 242. My first Filson bag. I want a 256 in the same colour now.

wow even the filson.com website is showing their bags in full patina: http://www.filson.com/products/brief...taProduct=1019 the 257 i presume in brown (wrong! its tan!) and aged/pantina-ed to kingdom com EDIT: WBaker did some research and the bag shown is actually a patina-ed Tan colored 257! my god that bag must of been through hell and back!
post #251 of 4407
Wow, that really 360's my opinion of the brown. Very cool looking. EDIT: I actually contacted filson about that bag, and apparently at one time it was a tan. The brown hasnt been out long enough to show any samples with an aged patina. Still cool information.

Guys, I need your help REAL QUICK! Sorry for the caps. Am, right now, on Crane's Filson 258 buy it now page...what color do you guys prefer..I put my bags down in not-so-clean places and i live, unfortunately, in a not-so-clean place. I LOVE the tan, but am worried about stains, smudges, etc..don't like the green too much and the brown doesnt contrast with the straps... Also, it doesn't seem to offer me any discount??
post #253 of 4407
Don't buy from Crane's! Get it from this seller, it's much cheaper http://cgi.ebay.com/FILSON-Padded-La...item255cb4763f only $240 with free shipping

And what would be the general consensus on the "stain" repellant properties on the tan? Does it get grimy quickly? How do you clean it?

Not sure how quickly they gunk up, but Filson's official cleaning advice says just use a damp cloth.
