Just tried it here at the store (working late to ship to all you fine folks) and it won't work. There is actually a lip on the inside of the top flap so a laptop that is more than 12" won't fit. I went the other way, and it's too tall for the flap to close. Sorry.
I think I'm finally about to bite on a filson briefcase. But I am having trouble deciding between the zippered tote and the original briefcase (style number 256 I think). What do you folks think? The informal polling I have done among a few colleagues and frieds is the zippered tote is a bit feminine. I tend to disagree since a picture I've seen (Phat guido I think) it looks pretty awesome.
This is a great deal on Filson stuff. I'm expecting a waxed Foul Weather jacket and a Security Wallet next week (thanks for adding that wallet on for me David). I've always loved Filson stuff and at these prices it's just too hard to pass up. Once winter really hits here in Wisconsin I may have to order a Double Mackinaw Cruiser to go with my regular Cruiser for the cold winter weather up here. Thanks you guys for the great pricing!
Dave - I'm now looking into the 290 wheeled carry-on (you know, to go with my 257 ). Looks like it's out of stock, so how long a wait would it be until they come in? If it's a special order, do the usual discounts still apply?
Any other forum members own this item and care to comment on it?
I am hoping by Thanksgiving. They sell out quick. Filson had production problems this summer and couldn't get all of the wheel parts. That put them behind on all of the wheeled luggage. If anyone is interested, I have the 291 in otter in stock for a while.
Well the crazy webmaster is going to do a phone in special on a couple of Filson items. These items will be 40 off, how's that for a discount? To get the discount you'll have to specifically mention Styleforum when you call. I'll let you know tomorrow what's gonna be on special for a week. Who knows, if this goes good I just might have weekly specials all the time.
