@speedy611 congrats on the purchase looks like you’ve got some great bags there! Appreciate the detail you gave to describe the conditions as well. I don’t think you would have any issue getting Filson to fix that XL in my experience. The one issue I can see is they might deem it easier to replace vs repair. So that’s always a risk, I’ve been able to work with them and come to agreement before hand that we would talk about replace vs repair before any action was taken if they felt a repair was not worth the effort.Lastly, the regular rolling duffle. No damage on this on, thankfully.

Handle works well, and patina on the leather patches is nice

Both this and the XL have these zipped internal pockets. They almost seem to work better when laid flat across the top of your stuff, which might make sense for quick access to smaller / important items

I could see us using this as a family hauler - it’s not so huge as to be untenable, but is definitely a capacious bag. For all those reasons it’d probably sell well too, especially given that new here it’s about £600!!
So, if you made it this far, thanks for reading. Any advice or suggestions as to what to keep and what to sell (or offers...) is welcome! It’s going to be hard to justify my large duffle and pullman - and outfitter and 2x rolling duffles.
Finally - @OtterMeanGreen - I hope I haven’t induced you into an OG coma ;-)
