    For me yes, but it's subjective.
    I found tan colour great in many pictures seen on line but not so good in reality.

    Anyone got any real world images of the #70025 messenger bag ?

    Not sure I like it in black.

    Thanks for the pic. Now I just have to decide Brown vs Green.

    Either colour is fantastic, but the green is going to hide a lot more of the dirt and smudges that the bag will accumulate over time. I tend to prefer the otter green for this reason. If you tend to look after your bags - don't put it down on wet pavements, etc - then the tan may be OK.

    Ebay & craigslist are going to be the most obvious places to look unless you are near a Filson outlet store who sometimes have some interesting stuff.

    I think he is trying to decide between the green and brown. It's personal preference at that point. I don't think that the brown or green will hide any better than the other.

    I just got a mackinaw cruiser as well. I'm normally a 39 or 40 size chest and the 36 fits fine with a sweater. These things are enormous, so I really recommend sizing down unless you plan to wear a live preserver or something underneath.

    Sale is live now!

    Just picked up an Otter Green 257. Debated the 258 but think it's too heavy/wide to carry by hand everyday. 257 should be plenty big. Ended up getting a Mackinaw Cruiser too! Had to resist buying more...

    Anyone want to sell me an unused strap? They are asking 70 bucks for a replacement :\

    Also, any recommendations for a duffle bag that can hold clothes for a weekend? Is the medium large enough for this?

    Arg. Killing me with that temptation. I love that jacket. Tried it on in the store - seems to run large, at least for me, YRMV. Forest all day baby.
