Well Otter, my old nemesis, I’m going to find out for myself what this ‘Tallon’ thing is all about. I bought a new Sportsman utility bag for my truck recently, and it isn’t big enough for my needs. I found an old 239 outfitter bag with low miles on it and it arrives tomorrow. It goes against everything I stand for, don’t like used stuff, kinda creeps me out. I like to put my own honest wear on a bag. However, theres no other item currently in Filsons line up to do what I need done. I’ll report back...

That’s a beautiful car, I would definitely rock that replica! Much like I’d take a Porsche 356b replica if done correctly.

OMG, I like that bag a lot. I’m really thinking of navy for a 258. I likely won’t make any purchases until this Covid-19 stuff blows over since my job supports lottery and casino.

Welcome back Strat. I'm excited to see your reaction and review. Hopefully you vetted the seller and got one that doesn't come with too much funkiness (i.e mustiness). I have heard the Outfitter's (given the nature of its owners), can possess this trait more so then any other Filson. That usually is attributed to wet/dirty gear being stowed in the bottom compartment. However some on here haven't experienced this. @speedy611 what say you?

This one is my favorite Outfitter pic...followed by Speedy's

Came across this post today while 'working'. Wanted to respond so any newer members may see. Would be interestin to see if @danfilsondill alone can swing the Navy bag count :bounce2:.

It was definitely interesting to look through and see everyone's collections. I also added a chart for Material - @TinMan3 if you prefer you can remove it - I was just curious
I’ll fill this out today and see what happens haha!

I took the time to update my collection by adding my medium field bag....

With regard to smell etc in the base compartment: mine is fine. This isn’t a bag I use that frequently, and when I do, even if I’m carrying boots or shoes they are dry so the problem doesn’t arise. But I agree with the theory completely.

For comparison : I have a waxed Cotten saddle bag made by a classic UK manufacturer. Twill, wax and leather ... sound familiar? These things go on for 20-30 years. I discovered mine today covered in mold after the winter in the garage. Bicarbonate of soda, white vinegar, then a rewax and treat the leather and it’ll be good to go.

After filling out the attached (I couldn't complete bag numbers I still don't know if I know them all - is there a list anywhere here?), the Navy percentage jumped from 9.7 to 12.8%! Sorry for throwing everything off haha

You're looking at it...we are the list. What bags do you need numbers to?

You can look at the tag inside the bag and it will tell you. Example, the small duffle is 70220. Then there will be a 4 digit code like 0416 that means April 2016 build date. I filled in a few of yours based on bags I have also.

I also updated the chart for bag numbers to read a hidden column that only looks at the last 3 digits for anyone that put the full style number. This will be combined (ex 70256 and 256 will be 256 on the chart).

I'd like to see a specificity between both noticeable era's. Talon/YKK Era only uses 3 digits and Bedrock Era introduced the 5 digit (70 + 256) build number. Although I see how that might be tedious to bifurcate

You're all set, I filled in the missing gaps for your build numbers. My only question is your rolling carry on, can you confirm the build number on it? Filson revised this model (like the Sportsman) and introduced a completely new build number. Also can you confirm the build date on your MTB? Staying on the MTB, I wasn't aware you had a 246, since I didn't see it reflected in your first picture post

Thanks for the heads up about the Tanner sale, OMG. Yes I dipped into the sample sale.

TOP - Travel Wallet - M81 Camo from this year's sale.

MID - Utility Bifold Natural from sample sale last year.

LOW - Utility Bifold Natural bought several years ago, regular price. Retired from duty.

Thanks for turning me onto Tanner Goods. Their wallets and belts are incredible. I still have this in my peripherals in the near future hopefully. They retail for $325 but occasionally go on sale for nearly $100 off. @M635Guy has one in Natural Shell Cordovan, which is what I want too. Like mine (and your's) TG Utility Bifold, it transitions quite beautifully. It's called the Fat Herbie and appears to last much longer, which is a benefit to shell cordovan leather.

Amazing thank you! Don't know why I scrambled my brain (I was looking at Medium travel bags online that's probably why), but I fixed the error I was referring to my Large Twill Carry-On Travel Bag. I updated the number as well. Thanks so much awesome to see this spreadsheet and all the data!

So this Shelter at Home stuff has me going through closets and cleaning out the house (nothing else to do) and I found an unused, pretty much new 256 briefcase in the back of a closet........SWEET!

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
