It was so HARD choosing a colour for Filson bags… ended up getting a few of them...

In case you're having a hard time deciding too, here's a link at a quick look of them under natural sunlight.

Thinking of purchasing a Filson Small Duffle Bag to be used as a Carry On on flights and as a "day pack". Anyone travelled with a this bag before? How was it? Or should I consider something else?

For domestic carry on flights, I think the biggest bag you can use is the Pullman. However, if you fill it up to capacity, it might exceed the size in measurements. I opted for the Travel Bag Medium and its a good enough size to hold clothes and toiletries for a casual weekend away from home.

Here's the hat's tag (shitty iPad photo):


Tag looks the same as my Mackinaw cruiser., so my guess is that it isn't Ebbets.

Hat was ~$50.

 

Very interesting! I feel like that's a missed opportunity for a great collaboration. Thanks for the pic.

I went to Ebbets and tried on a bunch of their hats – I much prefer the Filson's construction and shape. Missed opportunity, maybe, but I like the product much better.

Got myself a slightly used Shelter Cloth Packer Coat. Love the thing, it's just too warm right now to wear it... I like the Filson stuff I have (wool shirt and pair of tin cloth pants), so hopefully this lives up to my expectations as well.

I have a brand new otter green rucksack that I'm looking to trade for either otter green/black tin cloth backpack. Please pm me if you're also looking to trade.

Filson Original Briefcase.  I can't remember exactly when I bought it but I know it's at least 10 years old.  I've carried everywhere I've gone all over the country and whenever I have time off.  I never go anywhere without it.  It's held up well.  I have one of their field bags that is almost as old and it has held up just as well. 

 

It has traveled constantly as well.  Not the best pics but that's all I had time for right now.

I had one of their packer hats that lasted about 15 years until I lost it.  It was getting pretty wore out by then.  Their wool socks wear like iron.  I have yet to wear out all but one pair of them I bought years ago and i wear them all winter long every year.  Most all of their stuff is bomb proof but there are those exceptions as I have mentioned in a previous post.  I had a pair of their Chukka boots for 7+ years before I finally froze them when they got sopping wet in the snow at zero degrees and the leather finally cracked.  I wore them every winter, every day all winter long for those 7 years.  They do guarantee their products just don't buy them and put them away for 2 years before you start using them.

No such thing as "wore out" of course, with Filson. Only "ready to be sent in for some patchwork or (more likely) free replacement" if it gets too threadbare.

Picked up a Seattle fit Weekend/Mile Marker this weekend 

On a piece of outwear like this, would you expect the shoulder seams to lie directly above the shoulder seams of your shirt or is having them hang slightly (half an inch to an inch) lower acceptable?

Actually, you're right.  What happened with mine was that I didn't keep it waxed  because i didn't know much about Filson back then.  It slowly but surely shrunk over the years. I really couldn't wear it because it was too tight.  Other than that the only thing that really "wore out" was the leather band on the inside which could have easily been replaced.

Levi's by Filson Trucker is perfect for this time of year.

post #659 of 684

Can anyone explain to me what the button on the inner pocket on the Mackinaw Cruiser is meant for?  It's the Seattle Fit, if that somehow matters.

 

As far as I can tell, the button is purely cosmetic, as it doesn't hold anything down or close the pocket...it's sewn onto the front of the pocket.  That said, Filson doesn't strike me as a company to just add a button for cosmetic purposes, so I have to assume there is some utility to it.  Happen to know what it's for?

Does it match any of the other buttons on your jacket. Maybe it's just an extra.
