• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

@Rymanocerous doesn't get much better then this with a Tan Talon Pullman, albeit a small mark on the front

That’s a Wool Small Duffle in i believe Gray & Black (GB color code). Its Build Date was December 2011. Is it yours or one you aspire to buy?
It's mine. Bought it on a whim. Were these a limited edition? I hadn't seen one before. Very nice bag; it seems practically brand new. Not sure I'll keep it though.

The all wool duffles are indeed pretty rare. Definitely rarer then the Harris Tweed Collabs and the other more common Wool Duffles that incorporate other materials on the sides.

Yours was built just before the Bedrock acquisition in 1st quarter 2012 so it’s technically still a “pre-Bedrock Era”, even though it bears the "70" before the quintessential pre-Bedrock 3 digit identifier

Another fun fact is the wool duffles had a notably higher retail price than the twill. Not sure if wool is just a more expensive material or just the limited edition aspect driving the price but always thought that was interesting.

Thanks OMG. Added to my watch list. Now I just have to try to outlast the pros.

Picked this up when they dropped to $49.95 last week on Folsom’s site. I’ve wanted one for a while, but the price was too steep at $145

You should’ve bought 3
I do regret not picking my dad up one. He was here when mine came and really liked it. Not sure why my phone keeps changing Filson either. Guess I’ll add it to the default dictionary

I have one of the lunch coolers above and use it almost daily. Great to carry lunch in.

These are still available on Filson’s sale page on their website. Giddy up though. The sale is ending any second.

I bought the plain version and really liked it. I liked is so much that I doubled down and bought the Shadowgrass Camo version. I love that pattern and I’m not even a duck hunter...yet. I paid more than the fifty dollars they are asking now. (sigh)

I will add this: I don’t think these are a miracle cooler or anything crazy like that. They work fine/good/very good. I do love the size...it’s bigger than you think...a six pack will fit inside with room to spare. The side pockets are handy and also hold more than you would think. Great place to keep napkins, utensils, openers, etc. the build quality is very high, of course. They look incredible to my eye. I’m as biased as they get though. So, there you have it. I do love both of mine and hope to use the daylights out of them. It’s an expensive cooler even at $50 but it is pure Filson and it is difficult to get anything pure Filson for $50.
I hope my ramblings help someone.

Couldn’t agree more, and for me I was in dire need of a new cooler bag for work lunches so I purchased this for $50 instead of another descent quality bag for $25-30. The size also helped as I sometimes pack breakfast and snacks for tennis matches also.
