Does anyone have any input? I'm debating between the tan or the navy blue...

You'd need to confirm with them that they are talking the Navy twill 256 rather than a Red Label Navy canvas. They say its canvas, which would be the red label, but perhaps they just don't know the difference, and can't identify one or the other.

Yes, they will darken the leather. Never used them on really light leathers, so can't comment as to how much they will darken though.

Crane's sells them separately. I asked them to send me one with my 256 if they couldn't get the 256 pre-installed with the handle from Filson. I don't remember the exact cost, but of the top of my head, it was $10-12.

Received my #240 Small Carry-On Bag few days ago, and has been carrying it since and really happy with it.

 

Btw, I also have the Medium Field Bag

 

Dimensional wise, the #240 Small Carry-On Bag is just a bit bigger.

 

And with the same loads; with 240, it feels a lot less lighter than when carrying with Medium Field.

Plus I can now add a 13" laptop and A4-sized binder. And a camera . . .

My review of the Filson Original Sportsman Bag was featured on Filson's Facebook page!

Has anyone crammed one of these under an Airline seat? Dim's suggest it might fit with some coaxing.

 

Looks like what I'm after in terms of a travel bag.

Does anyone have any pictures of how the tan or any other color looks after several layers of LP or Barbour's wax? I want to see what kind of color I can add to a new tan or brown bag

I'm not sure how many people put wax on their canvas/rugged twill bags.

Some people have done it with varying results. The last post I could find on this was from last month - http://www.styleforum.net/t/133759/filson-bag-thread-with-pictures/2595#post_6464485

Personally, I'd not do it, preferring to use scotchguard to add water repellency as I prefer a dry finish that will not seep into clothes. Filson, according to their web site do not offer rewaxing of their bags, but this may change now that they offer oil finish bags.

Perhaps you should have bought an oil finish bag ?

Thanks for the info. I haven't bought one yet. I'm trying to decide on which size/model/color combination I want to get, and to get an idea of how to maintain and care for it.

Is that an umbrella in the 256 side pocket?
post #2670 of 4401
Yes, it is. Foldable umbrella.
