I love these. With my old monks, the strap/buckle were the focal point of the shoe and that made me a little uncomfortable (hard to explain, but like I was trying too hard). With these, what you see is a nice wingtip, on a great Last, and oh, by the way, they are also a monk strap. Couldn't be more pleased.
I use the M Travel as well for non flying travel. It's a great 1-2 day bag but I hate how it flips over when packed full and carried over the shoulder.

I own both the Filson medium travel bag the small duffle. The medium travel bag is prone to flipping as suggested here, and was discontinued by Filson earlier this year. The small duffle is far less prone to flipping, but I miss the exterior stow pockets for quick access to small items.
