    much appreciated. I will pick one up when I go to Portland (they have a Filson store+no sales tax) for Thanksgiving.

    Was in Portland a few weeks ago and was sad I was not able to make it out to the Filson store. My 261 did make it out with me to Portland though.

    I picked up a 257 the other day. What care products, if any, would you all recommend to protect the leather?

    I use Chamberlain's Leather Milk #1...I discovered it when I bought a few products from Saddleback Leather and I have been very happy with the way it conditions my Filson trim.

    I have also heard that Obenauf's is good, but I have not personally tried it.

    I've used some Chelsea leather food on my straps. Not sure if it is working well or not, but don't think it can hurt.

    I use Obenauf's periodically; I have no complaints so far. The Filson leather really soaks up liquid treatment.

    Same here. Obenauf's is great stuff.

    I just purchased a couple new Filson bags from Glen's this morning at 25% off. I am not sure how long the sale will last, but if you have any Filson bags on your Christmas list...now is the time:)

    Thanks for the link!

    Shoot. Literally hovering my mouse over the order button for a Sportman's Bag. I already own a tin cloth small duffle. Hah, anyone want that? That'd make me feel better about getting the Sportman's...

    Anyone have a navy Filson Red Label bag with natural leather trim/ handles? How does the leather age? Anything special I should do to protect it?
