Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 220

post #3286 of 4219
Just picked up the 232 in Tan from Bench & Loom's New Year sale. My first Filson, I'm quite looking forward to it. I've been wanting to move to a bag with a carry handle in addition to the shoulder strap and had been looking at the briefcase, but at the price I think the Medium Field Bag will do quite well!

Now I have to exhibit patience as I wait for my boss in the US to bring it to me on his next visit to our office!

Mine has met the carry-on restrictions every time (despite the glaring looks from many of the attendants), and is a black hole as far a packing goes. Absolutely the best choice if you're planning on traveling more then 2-3+ days. My only issue with the Pullman is that when fully packed it can weigh a ton and long treks across the airport...especially when you have to sprint from A to D terminal in Atlanta... can be rough.

Thank you

Thank you.

Will have to see if the local dealer in Toronto has one in stock to check out.

However, since my wardrobe consists of more earth tones than grays/navy, I might end up exchanging the navy for a tan. We'll see. I am excited nonetheless!


"fit" pics if possible?

+1. Mine is en route to my parents' house in Oklahoma (it was a Christmas gift from them). Then I'll have to wait one more day for them to ship to Dallas. Should receive mid/late next week. Hopefully, a pic of yours will tide me over until mine arrives.

It's called Te Koop, on Queen just east of Spadina. The Oliver Spencer store near Queen-Ossington also carries some Filson stuff.

Yeah, Oliver Spencer is the one I was thinking.  I might head over this weekend.

Thanks, I will check out either or.

 

In reality, I will probably order it from the US since it will probably beat the prices up here.

Finally, Camera bags from Filson:

I hope they're less boxy than Billingham

if what you want is some heavy canvas bags i've always used domke bags. high quality.

i also use a padded insert in my zippered tote but I still reach for my domkes when when carrying expensive camera gear
post #3295 of 4219

I've owned about a dozen Domke bags but they just don't work for traveling — no zippered pocket for a passport and the single clasp just doesn't cut it. F-803 comes close but I wish the waxed version wouldn't come with contrast webbing; it looks ugly.

I humbly disagree.  I used to be a international travel photographer, and the Domke F-1X is, in my opinion, the best travel photography bag out there.  It has a zippered pocket, allows virtually instantaneous access to cameras, and is rugged as can be...all while being a bag that doesn't like a stereotypical camera bag (i.e. no black nylon), so you're not a target for thieves.  It's not quite as beautiful as a Filson bag, but it's function is unmatched, and the form isn't too bad, either.

 

All that said, now that I'm no longer a travel photographer (bought a house and got married...so domestic photography is my life now), I'd be open to a Filson camera bag, as some of my current clients care a lot more about the looks of my bag than anyone did during my travels abroad.

Isn't it funny how that goes? It's not only the bag but now some clients judge you by what camera you drag out of it as well. Funny and sad at the same time. I have a couple of Domke bags and they're just fine for the situations I bought them for. I'm interested in the Filson camera bag as well but need to see interior shots or better yet handle one. Tanner makes an interesting camera bag too.

Sending some bags back to Filson for complimentary repairs. Cracked bridle strap on a duffel, bent out of shape snap on the sportsman bag, so one of the inner dividers won't go in. Usual wonderful service from them, sent me a return label, and the only issue from my perspective is that I have to wait to get them back... smile.gif

I'm more interested in the worker's canvas collection

Also on the horizon is a new canvas bag collection that takes classic Filson silhouettes and applies them with heavy-duty (almost double-weight) canvas that is virtually indestructible. It’s made with workers in mind. More on that collection soon enough.
