Filson definitely made improvements after 2017/2018. IIRC mid to late 2018 this QC issue was reigned in but what you see being offered since 2019 till today is a different bridle leather, or at least a different finishing treatment. It’s pretty darn flawless but in many cases it lacks character, which some might find clashing versus other eras.So Filson made improvements after 2017? My new 48-hour bag I just bought directly from Filson has a date code of 2019. I've only used it twice but handle straps don't show any signs of wrinkling.
Popular example I use. Here are two of my Talon Era Filson’s. I don’t own the MTB anymore and I just sold the hat...yup you heard that correctly.
