    Jeep as in Grand Cherokee or J40. I knew I shouldn't have gotten rid of my Ram 2500 turbo diesel 4X4.

    Anyone know how heavy is the Filson Small Duffle Bag? Will it be a bitch to carry around for everyday use?

    A couple or few pounds which to me is nothing.

    Darn can't believe I missed that deal! Much better than the Brooks Brothers deal. Gah! Guess I will have to wait until another sale as good as the wconcept one comes around. :(

    CI, Thanks for the BB heads up! Some great deals. Unfortunately they seem to no longer offer the 256 in tan only brown. I may have to grab the 257 at this price but I think the 256 fits my needs better

    Mainly, the wrangler body shell with the soft top. The wife has a fairly basic, upgraded tyres & suspension, tough as nails JK that is a blast to drive. However, the soft top offers no real security as velcro and zips are easy to get into without tools let alone being easy to cut. The soft top folds down into the trunk which is thus essential always open at the top even if a hood is used. Interior fittings are pretty much plastic and the lockable glove box and centre console are easily pried open.You have to weld/bolt something more substantial in place and there is not always an easy place to fit things without impacting some area of functionality - soft top take down, rear seat push back, etc. For small items storage boxes can be securely placed under the front seats. Larger storage - boxes in the floor of the trunk or by adding a top to the trunk and using with the soft top up or a bikini top.

    IMHO - Best combination is removable hard top + bikini for the summer + storage vault in the trunk + under seat box.

    The SUV models such as the Grand Cherokee will be OK as they have all over metal skin and none of the issues brought about by having a soft top and no real trunk.

    It used to be that Filson would not allow their goods to be discounted and they were excluded from such things as store-wide discount coupons. Recently, we have seen a number of vendors offering fairly substantial discounts off Filson goods.

    Change in policy from Filson ?

    No official change that I'm aware of. Some just do it and worry about it later or they're dropping the line from inventory. We've fought with them over this for years remember?

    Grabbed a 256 & 257 from BB this morning! For 40% off I grabbed both and will return whichever I don't want. Thanks again CI! A little less of a great deal since they charge tax and shipping but still like 30% off even with that factored in. Looking forward to my first Filson bag

    Nicely done rf. I'm debating over the Sportsman/266 as it's such a good deal. If won't ship until Feb but I assume the discounts still apply. I've been carrying a 256 as a briefcase since 2008. It handled a 13" laptop in a sleeve for much of that time but now I can get away with an ipad most days. I also have an ancient 257 that I picked up on eBay but don't use it much and lastly I use a tan Medium Travel bag for weekends or 1-2 nights of business travel. For air travel I still use a rolling 22" suitcase but when I'm driving I just shoulder the Med Travel bag.

    that W. Concept store has a new 30% code (GOODBYE30) for all items with free shipping. its still more expensive though (257 comes in at $190+ and the 256 at $150+) but its free shipping and if you're outside NJ no tax. There are also some other items like the rucksack (in black) and tote bags. The zippered tote bag comes in at $98 with the 30% code so thats a nice deal.

    Thanks! I am looking forward to it. Between the 256 or 257, my Saddleback and my Billy Kirk I think I am set on briefcases for a bit..

    I almost grabbed that denim duffle as well due to the deal. I believe it is an 18 oz Japanese denim and like you debated it because it is such a good deal. However, I decided it is ultimately a bit too large for what I am looking for. Its a shame because I think its a great looking bag.

    Congrats on your first, but I doubt last Filson bag rydenfan! I still need to find a few more ways to have you spend money to pay you back for finding those Alden Ravello's for me. [​IMG]

    I like my Sportsman bag more than any other bag I own. Including other Filson's, bucket mouths and the typical Midway USA shooting bags. The U shaped zipper has a lot to do with that if the XL Outfitter and duffles had it I would own them by now too. Someone on here way back posted that they use the Sportsman as a diaper bag and when his son is older he will give it to him, great idea. I have the brown and will end up getting the tan and olive someday. About a year and a half ago I was shooting skeet and a guy walked in to the clubhouse, looked around and walked by at least 60 people and their bags to come up to me at the back of the room. Said he broke a screw off on his scope ring and asked if I had anything in my bag to help him out. I reached into a side pocket and handed him my leatherman, it took him all of 30 sec. to get it out. He handed them back to me and said he just knew that I had what he needed in my bag. Not sure if he even knew it was a Filson or not but there is certainly something about a Filson......

    That W Concept store looks too good to be true. Anyone know if they are legit?

    I'm looking at my 257 I ordered from them on the 23rd and received on the 24th so I'd say they're on the up and up.

    kr.conecpt.com redirects to www.wconcept.co.kr which is full of emaciated models who have been on the rack (or maybe just photoshopped) wearing skinny jeans. Poor kid.

    As has been mentioned people on the east coast have received their order and others have shipping info and tracking #s for theirs. Fingers crossed.

    If in doubt pay with a credit card that has a stated policy on internet claims that go wrong.

    I do remember the issues that you have had with them, which was one of my reasons for asking.

    i got my 257 from that store. they look like they are located in the fort lee NJ area (near the george Washington bridge) which has a lot of stores. the super good deals expired, but they still do have some decent ones (257 for $190 and 256 for $150+). The order I put in (on the 23rd were shipped out on the 24th and arrived in time before xmas).

    Heads Up:

    Filson.com has some incredible discounts right now on discontinued items - but things that are nice (like bags and even things that never go on sale like their Filson Rain Coat).
