    Some of us don't like the exposed Harris Tweed under the straps. I've seen it in person though and it is nice, but I don't like the Harris Tweed under the straps. The Filson rep also showed me the Harris Tweed totes they did for Unionmade as well as an Indigo 256 or 257 with saddle tan bridle straps. I would rather get one of those.

    Damn you, SaddleSC. After reading this, I went and ordered the medium travel bag as well lol. The more I look at pics, the more I think I'll end up agreeing with you on the medium travel bag. I guess I'll have to wait for both to arrive and I see them in person.

    That was you? I saw it reappear and then quickly disappear on the site.

    I made the mistake of placing my order through the store sales associate. He apparently waited a long time to place the order, because he called me more than five hours later to tell me the bag is no longer available.

    Strongly considering a 256, but I'm curious about one thing -- just how narrow are the end pockets? Would they fit a standard plastic water bottle, for instance?

    Not possible in my opinion. You'd be lucky to fit a few pens in it.

    Definitely not possible...they are extraordinarily narrow on the 256.

    You mean the outside end? You can definitely put water bottles in there...

    I think we're talking about the ends where the d-rings are for the shoulder strap.

    Like the others have said you're not going to get much in there. You can probably get a few more things in a 257 but definitely not a water bottle or can of pop. All I've got in mind is a reflective leg strap for when I ride my bike and a hacky sack.

    Hey Mujib, sorry if that was me. I thought there was one still available after I checked out, but I could have been wrong. When I decide on a bag, I'll pm you before returning it to see if you are still interested.

    I figured lol, but I'll pm you after I decide because it will make it less likely that I just keep both haha
