Yes! I finally took an overnight business trip this week and was able to use a few new items that I have purchased over the last couple of months. The small navy duffle was a perfect size for me and included change of clothes, sleep clothes, and workout clothes plus a pair of shoes.
Rymanocerous and nevadabob,
In that case, what do you do about the piling and chipping on the back side of the straps? The strap for my 257 is already showing some good wear from use the past couple of months.

Do you treat the other side or inside of the leather? In the case of the sleeve, would you treat the underside of the flap? In the case of a handle or strap do you treat both sides, the finished and unfinished?

I have really enjoyed getting to know more about Filson and its history from reading through this thread.
I have a question that may have been asked already, but I could not find anything on it.
The small duffle was numbered 70220. The original medium duffle was 70222. Large was 70223. Extra...
