if only GZ was being like old @GzStudio and bought 20 of each color
There’s too many people out there looking to make a few bucks on deals like this. It’s not worth the time for $25 profit per sale for me but there are plenty of people who are willing to do it for that. I find that most of the widespread deals I’ll buy what I want for me and pretty much leave it to the wolves to try and sell them. I bought one. But I do have a bunch of red small duffles and totes that I bought cheap and haven’t been able to move yet. Learned my lesson.

Agreed. If I was a an eBay seller as a career, I’d have grabbed quite a few and sat on them.

Funny little story: a few months ago I started a little Instagram page that I post interesting (at least to me) Filson bags on. Yesterday, someone commented on the picture of the FRD camo tote that I have, stating "Hey, I made that." So I struck up a convo with the commenter, and it turns out he is one of the three FRD gurus at Filson. We had a pretty long convo about bags and whatnot, and he shared some pictures of some pretty cool stuff, including the two photos here. The blue 256 is using the same blaze orange leather as my camo tote; blue and orange are one of my favorite color combos (they were my high school colors, cheesy, I know). He also shared some photos of products he is developing and asked me not to share yet, but they were really cool as well.

Tell him to get the 24hr briefcase done in twill!
Fascinating. Also the 48hr bag in twill with a proper trolley strap and back pocket!

Are you australian? “Convo” is very common Ozzie slang!

Yes!! Yes!!! Oh, yes!!!!!!!

Sort of sounds like I’m in the wrong group, eh? I guess we are passionate about our bags. 😜

I actually think I would be more excited about the 48hr in twill. So, apply these sentiments there, please.

Maybe we need to email the new CEO and offer our collective services as an engaged and passionate customer panel.

I'd like to propose that we invite the CEO to our meetup in Seattle. For homework, we can ask him to spend 12 days reading this forum. You know, for research.
He’d have to read more than one post a minute continuously for 24 hrs a day for 12 days to get through the whole thread :)
That @OtterMeanGreen levels of commitment...

Oh that’s what you’re taking about. Gotcha! They definitely offer that in Navy because I too almost pulled the trigger on a few. The bag your brother has is the #70081 Large Twill Carry On. It replaced the Large Carry On #242. The Large Travel Bag is the one I am searching for in Otter Green (Talon of course). It’s designation is #248.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was on the hunt for the 70081 Large Twill Carry on in Navy. Otter said he'd keep an eye out. Within a day or two, he found one on the bay that was mislabeled as a 256 at a pretty great price.

I couldn't resist. Received the bag yesterday and am glad I held out on the open tote deal at Nordstrom. This bag is a grail find for me! It's still got the tags on it, build date is 11/13 and is only missing the strap. Thanks @OtterMeanGreen!

Otter strikes again!!!! He recently found me a great bag - of which I need to take pictures and give him public credit!!!! Alas, no travel, so it's tucked away in the closet with my other Filson bags. Ugh.
