Exactly my experience. I did the vodka spray and the sun, but just using the bag a few times on trips seemed to do the most good. It might not work if the smell is very intense, but mine just had that old canvas tent smell.I will also throw in my 2 cents
I bought a used 257 and it came with quite a strong smell that even my wife complained about.
That was about half a year ago and the smell is all but gone on its own through just use and airing out.
Perhaps the smell was from the previous owner keeping the bag cooped up - Filsons are meant to roam about freely
