I wish Filson made the wool timber jacket for men.
post #182 of 863
i was wondering what you guys recommended for me.

im a student and typically dont carry that much and thus am not really thinking of the 257 but i need to lug around the new macbook 13", maybe a book and a binder and papers. i was thinking of the 256 or the 232. would the 232 fit a laptop? which style is more popular? also which color is more popular: brown or tan?

also on a completely separate note ... i live in cleveland and typically the temp can get a little under 0F but stays around teens-30s. so getting the double mackinaw cruiser would be overkill correct?

are the discounts online same as over phone? or is calling better?
post #184 of 863
Calling in is about $3-5 cheaper. We try to make the StyleForum discounts equal the in store discount.

On the laptop bag question, the 257 would be the best bet. The 256 isn't quite big enough and the 232 has a smaller opening at the top. You'd have to put your computer in sideways which would make a big gap when you fold the top over and you'd lose smaller items.

On the Double Mac, I'd think that in the 30's - 0's the Double Mac is great. I've got one, and it is a little too much in Missouri, except on the days in the single digits.

whats your return policy? if i decide to get the 257 and want to return for the smaller one?

also brown or tan: whats more popular in filson?
post #187 of 863
Brown is becoming popular. Tan is the most popular at this time. If you want to exchange, just leave the tags on it and mail it back.

Awesome, just ordered the 256 in brown. Thanks for the great deal!

doesnt the tan get really beat up and dirtied? im leaning towards brown in luggage just because of the fact that you cant really clean filson bags and the tan must look terrible used and abused ... is that correct?

Filson is not currently making the 240 in Brown. I have seen the Fall '09 catalog and Brown isn't offered then either.
On the beat up and dirty, yes, the Tan does. I'd have to go with Brown for my personal luggage if I was starting up all over again. But alas, I started too long ago to start over now. I'd have to say, I can always find my luggage on the airport carosel everytime though.
