Got my Filson 256 in tan. Checked with Crane's first and they couldn't get it to me in time. Ordered it direct through Filson. How do I add that extra leather hand grip option now? ...

I second the 'use the phone'. I bought a 257 in otter over the phone from Crane's about 3 months ago and I didn't have any trouble whatsoever.

can anyone compare the small duffle vs the sportsman?

worth the price bump just for extra pocket compartments?

i can get the small around 205 and the sportsman around 250

RKD, I just bought a small duffel to use as a catchall. I guess the real question would be whether or not you need the pockets. I didn't so I went with the duffel.

I just got a tan 258 from Crane's. I really can't recommend them enough. I placed the order on Wednesday night, got a tracking number on Thursday, and received the bag today. That's Amazon-levels of fast.

Beautiful bag.

I bought a Filson 246 back in March, which I use during weekends. I noticed that the shoulder pad is showing significantly more wear than the shoulder pad from my 257, which has been used almost daily for two years! Now granted, the 246 is used for much heavier loads, but the 257 shoulder pad is still practically smooth, while the 246 shoulder pad has tiny bits of leather peeling. Is this normal wear?

guys i like the og briefcase 256 but ,it doesn't look to roomy. i need bag that allows me to stash a few composition notebooks, some pens, a 15" laptop, and maybe a text book. what filson bag would be able to hold my stuff? the 257 seems to be the standard choice and with good reason but, I'm a concerned that it might be too big and a burden to carry. plaz halp, thanks in advance.

Hey guys, I am going to visit chicago next week. Can you point me to a place where I can check out filson bags (and buy one)?

Thanks a lot.

Should probably get a 257.. I'm getting a 256 because I use a 13'' laptop, 1 notebook, and 1 textbook.
