i dont understand ... filson cant possible believe that an undisclosed discount for styleforum members is really affecting them do they?

This is the small duffel empty, just sort of sitting there (it will crush flatter than this):



This is the duffel half full:



These two show the bag almost fully loaded:

the small will easily accommodate a weekend's worth of clothes and one pair of shoes. Fully loaded, it fits in the overhead, no problem. Half full fits under the seat. I use it on four-day trips to warm and moderate climates. If I were to carry it fully loaded for an extended period (e.g., walking around a city all day), I wouldn't want to go larger than the small.

The bottom is made of the same twill material and the leather straps extend around the full circumference of the bag. There is a seam where the ends of the strap meet on the bottom.

Does the strap get a lot of wear then b/c the bag rests heavily on the straps?

Not really. It only gets wear when i place it on the ground. I don't drag it around. The straps are strong and well sewen to the bag on the bottom with strong nylon thread. In any case, I don't worry about it, particularly given Filson's lifetime warranty. Build quality is a not an issue.

cool. I'll order it from Crane's after I return from Mexico in the first couple of days in Jan. I think Filson only gives limited lifetime warranty, so I don't think heavy wear on the straps on the bottom will count for free repair or replacement from Filson

You might be right about that.

Their warranty is pretty much unconditional. If you wear it out they fix or replace it.

Good to know. That is what I thought, but the website is sort of vague and I have never had to use the warranty. Thanks for the heads up.

Here's the Shelter Cloth All season Rain Coat. Nice and simple coat. Its unique in that it was made from old deadstock material diffrent from the thinner 6oz cover cloth (the olive green $275 version). I like that its blue. Under the big "bellow" pocket there is another side entry pocket. You can zip in standard liners even from other brands (my old North Face fleece vest and Patagonia down vest liner zip in fine). I guess the only cons is that its heavy (made of 8.5oz oiled cotton) at 4lbs, and with all filson jackets the fit is gigantoid (huge arms ect). Plus oiled cotton (like barbour jackets) is not everyones thing. I'm a sized 38 chest and the small is still roomy. I've used this in the snow and rain and it holds up fine just like Goretex it breathes. I'm going to pair this up with my old liners and stop looking like i just came off a skiing/arctic adventures. The best part: since its a web special (going to be discontinued) its $159 on filson's official website. There are free shipping codes too (just google them and remember they are case sensitive). Made in america, cheap, and tough as nails (plus that Filson guarantee). I still have my goretex jackets but I actually use them for when I go out camping, hiking and skiing. After I hit 30yrs old.. I just felt the need to wear more simple stuff even in crappy weather.

Had previously purchased the small duffel in brown.
Saw the Jean Shop custom dyed red small duffel and purchased that I one instead.
They are also going to red dye a travel kit.
