Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 38

post #556 of 4312
Hi all. Is the 256 large enough to carry a medical textbook and a netbook? Or should I be getting a 257? Will I look douchey (abnormally so) in first year med with either of these bags?

/\\ How big is the text book? Id say theyre pretty low on the douche scale as far as bags go. They're ultimately designed to be workwear bags. Showing up on your first day with a super expensive initial embossed leather bag would closer to the douchy category. IMO.

Hi guys,

I bought a 256 at the Filson Portland store (Woohoo~). I am loving it so far, but the shoulder strap is really not all that comfortable. For those who have had the same bag or a similar bag, my question is, will the shoulder strap get more comfortable with age? Thanks!

It definitely will.

Hello; It is about 3" thick. Is it best to get the 257 then?

I want to get a Filson for school, I've narrowed it down between the 256 and 257. On most days I'll carry an iPad and a binder, and very rarely a MacBook with a textbook. Those that have had similar situations what are your thoughts? Thanks guys

^I guess the 256 would suffice.

I can't agree more. I initially thought they were uncomfortable, however after a few week the strap is nice and soft.

I am wrong. The different colour is not called canvas, it's called khaki.
