    Yeah.. The brass zipper is really jagged, it has frayed the sleeves of jackets and shirts I own during a year and a half of regular usage (Tote, Brief case, Duffel). Most noticeable on Barbour where the waxed surface has been lightly 'chewed' around the wrist. I am afraid I won't be keeping them as long as they would last :(

    Yes it does, just email them after your order and they will refund the 30%.

    Has anyone ever compared the J.Crew Abingdon Laptop bag to the Filson 256 or 257? I am sure it is not made as well, but was wondering if it is a good substitute at 1/3 the price?

    I don't know but if your looking for a deal check out Barneys Warehouse. They had some Jack Spade marked way down that are the same style.

    On sale at $92 with a further 25% off using their promo code =~ $69 (+ tax + shipping). Got to be worth a punt. Shame they don't offer free shipping to stores.

    Waxed canvas. Might be 10 to 12 ounce material possibly less. Filson 22 ounce waxed twill. Should be pretty obvious which bag will last longer and be more resistant to extreme conditions. The bigger question is does the Crew bag have a lifetime no questions asked return policy when it starts to self destruct or you beat it to death?

    Hello guys!
    I'm currently contemplating buying a Filson Medium Duffle in either tan or otter green. So I was just wondering if someone knew the best place to order it from? I'm living in Norway, so cheap international shipping is good. Looked at Revolve, but it seemed as though they only had the navy one, and that was a preorder. Can any of you guys help me out?

    Where's the SF approved place to buy Filson nowadays. I'm in the market for a new small duffle.

    I'm going to buy a brand new Filson bag from someone in person. Does anyone know if Filson fake bags exist? More importantly is their any way or anything to look for that will guarantee it to be authentic?

    Thanks in advnace

    Check out this thread, it might yield some information:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/223192/filson-like-bag-fake-or-authentic-pics

    Do you own any Filson bags? If not, it might be worth your time to visit a retailer that carries a Filson bag in store like the one you are looking to buy. There have been some minute changes in Filson's core lineup over time, but nothing drastic. Generally speaking, any indicator of authenticity and be replicated or duplicated. The greatest indicator is going to be materials quality. Thick bridal leather, heavy twill tightly woven fabric, brass hardware including very high quality Filson branded brass YKK zipper. If the zipper is junk it's not a Filson. You can read more about Filson's materials here: http://www.filson.com/filson-life/2013/02/filson-101-what-makes-our-rugged-twill-luggage-so-rugged/.

    Just a quick hypothetical:
    What happens if someone sends in a limited edition Filson bag for repair and Filson determines that the bag is beyond repair? Does Filson give you store credit since the bag is no longer in production?
