Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 50

post #736 of 4136
Looks like the Glen's Outdoors sale is over. I was told last week that my Pullman, bought last Monday (a week ago) would ship some time this week. So not really "five to seven days" for shipping but I'm pretty sure I'll live with shipping being free and the discount price.

Nice, I also snagged a Pullman at the Glen's sale. What color did you go with? I had trouble deciding, but decided to switch it up and try the green...got several items in the tan already.

I did tan so that it matches my 257--my luggage will match when I travel.

Tan matches more universally than green, and I don't need another brown thing in my wardrobe.

Im considering purchasing the Filson 257 for law school. My heaviest load is 3 BIG law school books and my laptop + a couple pens and highlighters. Does the 257 have enough space to meet my needs?

^^ why not measure the textbooks and check the filson website size specifications?

is crane's still the best spot to get a 256? i'm split between the brown and otter green, though i'm leaning towards brown to use as a work bag. I honestly won't be carrying documents to and from work that often but really like the look of the bags. satisfied.gif

Just not sure if the bag can withstand the daily grind of having heavy objects inside. Dont want to destroy it

If it can't, there's something wrong with it and Filson's customer care department will be more than happy to fix it for you (given previous experience).

it looks like the Filson comes up JUST short of my law school needs at 6 inches... thanks for the replies.

i'm starting to notice two wear points on my 257:

 

the stitching around the ring where the strap connects to the bag

where the shorter part of the strap loops around where the buckle connects

 

this is definitely a product of me having to carry too much stuff for school. i'm not too worried though, i feel like it would take a long time for anything to malfunction

do you condition the leather? or does anyone condition the leather strap? I would imagine that all that rubbing would weaken it if dry
