    A 257 can definitely hold a 15" Macbook Pro. The 256 can as well.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum. Wanted to post here because I just opened a Fed-Ex with my new 222 in tan. I've wanted one of these for a long time but for whatever reason didn't pull the trigger till a week ago. Just wanted to thank the forum for all the pics and opinions it provides all of us out there looking for some helpful advice, it certainly helped me out much more than I thought while I was on the web those few days. As for the bag, it goes without saying but it's timeless and I can't wait to put it to some good use. Although it exceeds carry-on limitations I'm sure I'll be able to keep my hands on it, the idea of a baggage handler playing soccer with it is pretty scary for now.

    I've carried the medium carryon almost fully filled on countless flights including RyanAir and the typical European budget airlines, you should be fine. As for baggage handlers, bag is built so well, used to be scared to check in, now do it every once in a while on southwest

    My New Modified Red Label Tote

    I added snaps to the outer pockets to keep them more secure and also added snaps to the end of the top of the bag to cinch it in and keep it more secure also. If needed they can be unsnapped and allow me to carry larger items. I also shortened the handles by 2 inches so the bag does not drag on the ground. being 5'8" sucks sometimes.

    Are these accurate color representations of the the Otter Green Briefcase? It looks like a different color in every picture I see.

    I'd say the second image looks more accurate to me, at least on my screen. To me in real life, otter green looks closer to a forest green than an Army green.

    The color will depend on age as the bags fade over time. Each picture very well may represent the "true color" according to age and fade. I can certainly say that both bags are quite weathered.

    I just bought the same tote and waiting for the shipment,, if you are 5'8" and still drag the bag, then I think I am screwed.......

    BTW, nice Lamy pens [​IMG]

    are you sure those are the same bags? because after 2 years, my brown 257 looks exactly like the picture on the left, and my otter duffle looks exactly like the colour on the right

    Aside from Crane's, are there any ongoing sales in which the Filson rucksack can be had for a good price?

    Also- any recommendations on whether to go with the tan or green? How comfortable is the bag itself?
