Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 315

post #4711 of 4714
My otter green 256 (purchased in early 2013) seems constructed just as well as my old tan 257 (purchased in 2009). In fact, my 256 feels more rigid than my medium travel bag (purchased in 2011), but I think that's more due to the way the 256 is constructed.

I just got the 256 in Navy too and it definitely uses a thinner canvas material compared to my 257 in Tan. The Navy material also feels as if it's untreated and would be more prone to fraying. I went with the Navy one so I can use it for work as it's a fairly conservative environment, however I may return it if others have found that it does not resist fading/fraying well.
I have used my navy 256 every day for over a year and has not faded. It just lost a bit of the original sheens and can say it's a quality product.
I actually like the the new fabric. Plus longer handle drop is definitely better. Some people here likes to panic .

The 70256 is not wide enough for my needs and doesn't fit my body shape. I'm probably going to look for another bag more ergo friendly. And why da heck is the shoulder strap that long?? If anyone wants the 70256 tan for $200 lmk. Brand new with tags still in plastic wrap.

You must be 3 feet tall! I've always been irritated with how short Filson straps are.
