    The original price on Filson.com is USD 290 so the offer price is not that far off. Furthermore the ratings for the seller is really good so I don't see why you shouldn't go for it.

    I'm not aware of any fakes.

    The only thing to watch out for is for items purchased from the Filson outlets store, which could be seconds, over-runs or end of lines. These items are marked clearly on the Filson labels - generally with a large 'X' but sometimes other marks. The two sellers that you link to seem to be volume sellers so I don't think that this concern would even apply, it is more for when buying from individuals.

    I'd say go for it and hope you don't get hit by any import taxes.

    Travel/dopp kit (70218), wheeled carry-on bag (71290) and oil finish medium field bag (70112) are now on Filson's website in navy.

    I like that navy travel kit, but just got it in tan for Christmas. I have the small carry-on in navy, which I quite like.

    Actually, the oil finish medium field bag doesn't look too bad in blue

    I'd really love to see a duffle in Navy with the natural leather straps- give it a real pop. I don't care for the dark brown leather with the Navy- works much better on the tan and green. They make the denim bag with the natural, should have it in the canvas as well.

    Agreed - that's why this is one of my favorite bags:

    It's not as rugged as the normal luggage but still can take a beating IMO.

    Agreed. I almost grabbed the denim duffle with light tan straps for this same reason. Bag was ultimately a bit too big for my needs

    I love that bag- where did you pick it up? I remember looking at this at some point but read that it was a lighter canvas that the standard Filson fabric. Still, damn beautiful.

    I know this is the Filson BAG thread, but is anyone else sick of seeing the Seattle Fit clothing from Filson? Unfortunately I think all Filson offerings will soon be only cut tight to the body.

    I also find it odd that the historic and limited edition and extremely expensive 1912 Cruiser Shirt ($612) and 1922 Sleeve Vests ($500), which have been reissued for a short time and brought back from the Filson archives are only for sale in a fit that was invented in 2013. Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

    Yeah, my understanding is that the red label isn't as sturdy.

    Bought it from a shop called Devil City out of St. Louis. I think it's 18 oz. instead of the traditional 22 oz. It's not as sturdy, but it's still a Filson.

    I remember seeing a few of the navy Red Label duffles on one of the sale websites recently (maybe on the Clymb) but I'm not sure of any retailers that still have them in stock.

    Here are mine. I have been carrying the zipper tote daily for a year. It's holding up just fine. Got the zipper tote from Urban Outfitters -- don't remember which online store sold me the duffle... [​IMG]

    Very helpful thread. Thanks all.
    Scored my first Filson piece, 256, thanks to the good information here.

    WConcept was an ease to deal with.

    Some pix without/with flash.

    Yes. I use Obenauf's Leather Oil. It is thebomb.com when it comes to protecting leather.
