Thanks for the replies. Is there much "give" in the fabric in the 257, more give than the saddle briefcase? Is the saddle briefcase a lot more rigid?

Thanks

They grow on you when you're around them in person. Pics don't do the bag any good at all.

22 ounce waxed twill doesn't stretch if that's what you mean and neither does 16 ounce nylon twill. The passage line is definitely more rigid.

Just got a 256 in brown for Christmas. Loving it except I want to add handgrip. Just called Filson customer service and they quoted me $37.50 ($10 for part, $20 for labor, $7.50 for return shipping).

Did you really get all this for $20?

That's what we charge. In fact we started ordering 256s with it already installed along with the normal model.

LOL! Not really. Take a look at Filson's site. Even THEY are having a 20% off sale. Gee I wonder where they got that idea from?

Not at all. While Crane's does indeed have great deals, it's always nice to hear about other deals out there. Keep em coming!

I am moving somewhere where the temperature is subzero (down to -10 F today after windchill). Would the single or double Mackinaw work for this? Any other filson products that would work at these temps?
post #160 of 667
The double mac is a good choice for subzero temps. Another good choice is the field coat or outfitter coat with a mac wool jacket liner. The advantage with this setup is you have a solid wind/water barrier over a mac wool coat. You can add lighter liners for days that aren't as obnoxious. Think of it as a 3 season setup versus a hard Winter setup.

Don't forget that no matter how warm the coat is if you don't protect your head hands and feet you'll still be cold and miserable.

I have a oil finish coat that I've worn about two years, so I guess it's time to re-wax. Never done this before-anyone got a link on how to or any suggestions?
thanks

Filson does this if you contact them.

You can do it yourself rather easily. You'll need at least two of the small cans of wax to pull it off and a hairdryer along with a rag. Warm up the wax with the hairdryer. Heat up a section of the coat with the hair dryer and liberally apply the wax with the rag using a circular motion. Do small sections at a time and don't worry about it being even. You'll fix that later. Once you get it waxed hang the coat using a coat hanger and heat it up until you see the wax melt and disappear into the fabric. Once you're done look it over and add wax to the areas you missed and on the high wear areas again. Melt it in and you are done. It takes a while but once you get the hang of it things go quicker. I can do one of my coats with two coats of wax in about an hour or so. It'll probably take you about 2 hours the first time you try it.

OK-will go to second hand store tomorrow and buy a dryer. thanks

Anybody here happen to have any experience using the Filson 222 as an airplane carry-on? The girlfriend got it for me as a belated Xmas present and I love it. However it seems like it maybe a tad too big according to the airlines' checked baggage limitation.
