I'm wondering the same thing myself. I've been so out of the loop with this thread.

 

I've been looking for a discounted travel kit. I've wanted one for a while, but I'm not so keen to spend over $100 on one...

From what I have read, the medium duffle bag will be too big for the gym.

Can someone post pics of the Filson small duffle in BROWN. I can't seem to find any pics in real world lighting.

Thanks!

Hi guys,

This is not a good day for me. I received an unidentify Filson bag from my uncle(no reference and no similar thing on Filson site) which I would like to post its freshly taken photo for your expert eyes.

This is my very first post here, and I already run into multiple trouble with the way this forum doesn't allowed me to post any photo. Where it ask about copy right crap, and when I submit(that it is not copy right), it just spunned indefinately. Is there an easy way around it?

Thanks in advance.

Okay, I got it fixed finally!!!

 

The bag is brand new, my uncle got it from Filson dealer in LA called Seed People's Market, where he gave them my specific instruction for a 232, but he received this one from them instead.. The price he paid for was US 220, and the receipt shows "medium field bag" which is obviously incorrect.

 

I tried to check in Filson site for the description, but found no model similar to it. FYI, this creature measures 20" x 13" x 7" (roughly, as it does not held its shape that well) Which is HUGE.. Did I got a better deal than I ask for, or totally ripped off?

 

Thanks in advance.

Looks similar (but not identical) to the Pullman with the clamshell design.

^I believe its a couple years years old. If you look back 3-4 pages some one else asked about the same bag. Remember FIlson is always changing their styles and discontinuing what isn't selling. Given that its similar to Pullman and you payed about half of that, and that this bag is actually pretty awesome, you got a hell of a deal.

Thanks gnu, I did look it up and it is indeed a discontinued 242 "Large Carryon" retail for over twice what I paid for.

But still, although this deal is no doubt a steal, I could not help but thinking, what I really ask for and really wanted is just a darn 232. As I am on a frequent business trip to Africa, a 232 and a beat-up hard shell American Tourister are all I need. And this 242 is far from being my solution.. Yes maybe I'll get to use it on short vacation once or twice a year, but that's about it.

Trouble is, I am residing in Bangkok Thailand. And it is sure just across a small volume of water from the shop in Southern LA. What do you guys think I should do? Should I keep it knowing I got an awesome deal? Or should I try to contact the Seed People's Market, and what would be a solution left for me?

Any comment/suggestion are warmly welcome.

I checked the reviews and yeah, it is too big. Think I'm gonna go with the sportsman, any ideas which online store have the best price currently?

yeah but not a good deal on the item he actually wanted.
post #2864 of 4416
Thank you for all of your comment,

What if I want to ship the 242 back to Seed People's Market(where my uncle pick it up under my instruction, I called the store a few days prior to ask them to check their stock, they confirmed that they have the 232 medium field bag in Tan, abd would reserve it for me). Given that it is the store's fault in misslabeling, would I be entitled to any compensation eg, free exchange/shipping of the correct 232 bag to me in Thailand? What option do I have(if at all any).

Thanks
Bick

Well, Bick, I would think so, but why the hell are you asking us? Ask the store; only they can tell you how they will rectify the situation.
