Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 184
On sale at $92 with a further 25% off using their promo code =~ $69 (+ tax + shipping). Got to be worth a punt. Shame they don't offer free shipping to stores.
Waxed canvas. Might be 10 to 12 ounce material possibly less. Filson 22 ounce waxed twill. Should be pretty obvious which bag will last longer and be more resistant to extreme conditions. The bigger question is does the Crew bag have a lifetime no questions asked return policy when it starts to self destruct or you beat it to death?
I'm currently contemplating buying a Filson Medium Duffle in either tan or otter green. So I was just wondering if someone knew the best place to order it from? I'm living in Norway, so cheap international shipping is good. Looked at Revolve, but it seemed as though they only had the navy one, and that was a preorder. Can any of you guys help me out?
Check out this thread, it might yield some information:
Do you own any Filson bags? If not, it might be worth your time to visit a retailer that carries a Filson bag in store like the one you are looking to buy. There have been some minute changes in Filson's core lineup over time, but nothing drastic. Generally speaking, any indicator of authenticity and be replicated or duplicated. The greatest indicator is going to be materials quality. Thick bridal leather, heavy twill tightly woven fabric, brass hardware including very high quality Filson branded brass YKK zipper. If the zipper is junk it's not a Filson. You can read more about Filson's materials here: http://www.filson.com/filson-life/2013/02/filson-101-what-makes-our-rugged-twill-luggage-so-rugged/.
