It is also numbered a 242, I think it was replaced with the Pullman as they have similar dimensions and form factor..

Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 271post #4052 of 57698/25/14 at 7:16am
You bet. Hope it works out for you.
On another note, I really wish Filson would do something about the cut and sizing of their clothing. I'd hoped the Seattle fit would be the answer, but it's still huge. Ordered the Explorer Jacket (http://www.filson.com/products/explorer-jacket-cover-cloth.10519.html), which is listed as Seattle fit in a recent catalog, but not identified either way on the website. My medium would be a large by any other brand's standard. Trying to decide whether to return, or try an exchange for a small.post #4053 of 57698/25/14 at 7:40amQuote:Originally Posted by dcg

I got this one in Seattle Fit (Med), and it was too tight. I exchanged it for the Alaska fit (also Med), and it was a perfect size.
I have exchange with them a couple of times, and if you tell them exactly where it too big/small, they can recommend the right size based on that.post #4054 of 57698/25/14 at 7:49amActually sent them an email requesting measurements for the medium and the small this morning, so we'll see what they say.
How are you liking the mile marker coat? I'm curious about the differences between the fits - was it mostly in overall width/length, or did the Seattle fit version have higher armholes/slimmer sleeves?
They have a bunch of items I'd love to have if a trimmer fit were available.post #4055 of 57698/25/14 at 7:55amIn my case, the Seattle Fit Med was "exactly" my size - meaning if I sat down, there was no room/material to allow me to extend the arms forward (like for example driving a car, typing on a computer, etc.). And that was without an inner layer. It was just too tight to allow for movement doing normal stuff. It fitted more like a fitted, tight suit jacket, than an outdoor jacket (which is what I wanted).
The Alaska Fit Med was cut more generously in the back and in the body, so I have good arm movement, and I can stretch forward. And it of course now allows for an inner layer.post #4056 of 57698/25/14 at 8:03ampost #4057 of 57698/25/14 at 8:13amGood luck. Like you, I wish your their sizing were more consistent. Right now it is still a little bit of a hit and miss. My Tin Clock jacket (now discontinued model called the Timberline) is size Small, and it is still larger around the body then the Alaska Fit Med size Mike Marker, and about as big as my older (26-oz) size 40 wool Mackinaw Cruiser.post #4058 of 57698/25/14 at 8:21pmpost #4059 of 57698/26/14 at 3:07pmQuote:
That will hardly happen - Sold mine after months of outdoor use. Just too bulky and heavy for what it holds. The new double-zipper Tin-cloth version doesn't get that many great reviews either.post #4060 of 57698/26/14 at 3:22pmQuote:
+1. I love the way it looks, but it takes up a lot of space when you're trying to pack light.post #4061 of 57698/26/14 at 4:07pmQuote:
Interesting I will have to keep an eye out for this. If it ends up being to heavy I will have to take that into consideration as I am trying to pack lighter these days.post #4062 of 57698/26/14 at 6:57pm
Have you seen the old mini dopp kit? Like most Filson items, I'd buy it if it were made of twill.
And for those wondering what the heck Vachetta is:
Made of 6-oz, 100-percent cotton that’s coated in a proprietary mix of polishing agents, waxes, and pigments, our new Vachetta fabric feels like leather. We use Vachetta to create lightweight garments with the uncompromising construction customers expect from Filson. The new Vachetta Short Cruiser is a washable, durable work coat that can also layer beneath an Alaska Fit Cruiser in the winter. The Short Cruiser, Scout Work Jacket, and Redwood Zip Anorak are also available in Vachetta. - See more at: http://www.filson.com/filson-life/2013/07/filson-101-new-products-modern-fabrics-iconic-styles/#sthash.5uyQOFap.dpufpost #4063 of 57698/28/14 at 5:42pmSo, Filson just opened up an outlet store by me. I had the opportunity to talk to a woman from corporate, and I scored a one of a kind item. The Outfitter Travel Bag in navy. They decided not to make it in navy because apparently the navy is not easy for them to make/source.
Here are some pics.post #4064 of 57698/28/14 at 7:54pmpost #4065 of 57698/28/14 at 7:54pm
