I would say the 256 is probably enough for that,( depending on the textbooks). You ll be surprised how much room you have. Of course there is no padding, but you coul even fit in the macbook with a sleeve.

Ive been backpacking Europe this summer and have used my medium duffle as my carry on the whole time. Even on small planes. Its still relatively small/flexible if not packed to capacity.

I have the 258 because I use a 15" macbook and need to carry law books. Best bag I ever got. Handles much more than previous bags that ripped to shreds with less weight (Swiss Army, Tumi). Customer for life.

how about the pullman? Is it a nice size in ebtween the small duffle and the medium? The small duffle is just that-too small while the medium is too big for carry on IMO

TIA

i tried (not particularly hard though) to find the vans rucksack for a while and gave up, couldn't seem to find one anywhere.

i bought a regular rucksack a few days ago and it's great, except for an insanely loud squeaking sound where the metal ring on the shoulder straps meets the top of the bag... anyone else experience this? should i try to grease it up somehow or just hope it goes away with time?

I've been traveling with the pullman, both overstuffing it with gifts and checking it while returning from international travel, and leaving it underpacked to be a carry on. I'd recommend it.

Just curious, I know the Levis oiled jacket has been discussed concerning it's..oiliness. And someone said that it eventually wears off or at least stops feeling greasy but can anyone tell me approx how long we're talking? I find it unwearable as it is now, which is brand new. I like to wear it with just a tshirt but I cant because it makes my arms all waxy- it aint cool. I really just want it to be dry at this point, is there anything that will cause this? I dont think I can wear it for 2 years this way.

I own the black oilcloth weekender jacket which also is oily. It is a lint magnet beyond believe because of that but I have always worn shirts or a liner under it. It is almost a year old and still fairly oily yet. Hanging it out in the sun will help the oil "cook" off, in fact thanks for reminding me to do so! You could have it dry cleaned to remove the oil but that defeats the waterproofness and part of the reason to own a Filson in the first place.

Thanks for the reply. I wonder how much it would help to let it sit in the sun? I don't really care so much about the waterproofing, I know that sounds strange, but I mainly like the color and fit of the jacket. So dry cleaning, and possibly losing some weatherproofing,  could be an option if that would actually make it much less waxy.
