I like the filson pullman for traveling...works as a carry-on on most airlines, especially when it is not stuffed. It is also a lot easier to pack and keep organized than the duffel bags I have...and it is also a lot easier to carry as well.
I have a pullman that I use every time I fly, and I've been able to carry it on even when stuffed. Because the bag isn't rigid like the standard rectangular roller carry-on, it's able to fit into the overhead bins easily. Plus the interior straps are great to keep stuff separated.
Has anyone used both the 257 and 258? I have a 257, which I love, but I got a new work laptop that just barely fits with my other stuff. I'm considering upgrading to the 258, and the dimensions look slightly larger, but I'm not sure what effect the exterior pocket has on those measurements. I might just have to take my computer down to the flagship store and try it out.
Has anyone ordered from Crane's recently?
