First post here, I just ordered a Filson 257 (Tan) and thought I should share the knowledge...

http://www.glensoutdoors.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=70257&/?Click=6123&site=google_base

I believe all of their Filson items are 25-35% off right now, as well as a lot of other items. 5-7 day ground shipping also appears to be free. I'm not sure when this deal ends though...

@NAMOR, dye your 256! I'm telling you man, it can be done (5)

Have you re-waxed it with that Barbour wax yet? How about some pics?

Does anyone here own a Filson duffle? I am considering buying one, but i am not sure if i should buy the small or the medium. I will probably use it mostly for weekend trips, so i am leaning towards the small, but if anyone have any pictures or info on how much you can cram into a bag, it will be greatly appreciated.

Buy a small for weekend trips. I have been trying to decide between the small duffle, the sportsman's bag or the medium travel bag as an overnight bag... they are all about the same size.

Small Duffle Bag 220
18" x 10 3/8" x 11"
Sportsman's Bag 266
18" x 11" x 12"
Med Travel Bag 246
18" x 13" x 11"

There are lots of results in Google image search if you have absolutely no idea how big they are. Medium duffle is great but imo too big for use as a weekend bag:

700

As for my decision, an airline carry-on was my top priority so I just ordered a Pullman from Glen's Outdoors (great deal, thanks hawaiiguy). I am hoping that having the Pullman in hand to see how it functions irl will make the overnight bag decision easier.

a coworker dyed her's green and it looks pretty cool. ill talk to her about it. havent done anything with the tan 256 yet because I ended up buying an otter green 257. Ill use the 257 until i figure out what to do with the 256.

Nice pickup with the pullman. I love packing for trips with a duffle; its much faster compared to a suitcase.

I was not sure about the Pullman -- wanted to get away from clamshells -- but it seems like the best way to get the most stuff into the cabin of a plane in an orderly fashion. I like the way they look once they soften up. Apparently they don't make them in brown... would have preferred that to tan but whatevs.

I don't expect the Pullman will function well as an overnight stuff bag, so I still need a duffle of some sort. Small duffle would be ideal as an overnight bag; it is also the only duffle that could be used as a carry-on. Since the Pullman has me covered there, and it would be kind of handy to have something I could check if needed, I'm leaning toward a medium duffle or large travel bag as an overnight/road trip bag that can be checked for air travel if required. In brown, just to mix it up.

Med duffle is like 7" longer than the small, probably a bit big for an overnight bag but maybe the most versatile option for me.

Small Duffle Bag 220
18" x 10 3/8" x 11" 39 3/8 linear inches
Medium Duffle Bag 222
25" x 14" x 13" 52 linear inches
Large Duffle Bag 223
30" x 14" x 13" 57 linear inches
