Here's my tan 261 from about 6 months ago.
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.
Your wallet is grateful. So hard to walk out of there empty handed
used my 257 for the first time.
waiting to board
Just fed my Filson addiction with the tan Pullman - for 25% off at Glen's:
$281 + Free Shipping...
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?
