@Soltrane - I saw that story when I was looking at your earlier posts on the 242. It makes me wince every time I hear it.I never check my bags in. It sounds like a nightmare to me to have a Filson bag checked-in.
But then again, I never travel longer than a week. If I really needed to check a bag in, I'd buy myself a classic Rimowa.
Filson bags, no matter how rugged, I baby every one of them .
@Wandering - agree, it’s a balance about checking or not. I have a large duffle which I’m ok to check. If I absolutely need a large roller for checking then I use a pelican case. But my Pullman and 242 are train and car, or carry on only. The modalities in the UK are different to the US or Oz so I fly a lot less and the problem arises infrequently.
