Awesome!

Zipper repair completed. Took me about an hour to remove the old zipper and a few more hours of hand stitching to install the new one. My fingers are raw and bloody from needle stabs but I got 'er done and it works smoothly and perfectly. I will investigate changing the brass tabs to the original ones but as it is now it's good to go.

Well done. Well worth the time, effort and pain.

Got a flyer in the mail that Brooks Brothers is having a 30% off sale for those with a corporate membership card on 3/20/2014.  I would assume this applies to all Filson product.

Hey guys, wondering if you could tell me whats the price you guys are paying for the small duffle- 220? Best price I could find is around $205, but not sure if there's any better promos going on. Also, for the guys who have the travel kit- is it worth it?

Hello,

to Day my 258 arrived and i am very happy with the bag.

but as you can see i must make some modification because i dont like it if my stuff is not at the right place.

^ Nice!

I'm looking for a handgrip for a 256. Does anyone know the best way of going around ordering one? I'm assuming calling Filson, purchasing one and having them mail one to me would be best? Cost & shipping ~$20? Any good "leathersmiths" in NYC?

I plan to do the same. After using my 256 for a few weeks I would like to add the luggage grip of the 257 and computer bag.

Yes, really like my handgrip. Had it installed at the factory before it was delivered to me. Not sure if they do that anymore.
