    New here, but looking to pickup my first Filson bag soon. Can someone tell me which bag is on the right, next to the small duffle in the picture? I saw it in person really quick so I snapped a picture but didn't have time to look in detail. I looked all through Filson's site but couldn't find it, looks almost like a small carry on to me, but it has full length zippers going all the way down.

    Here is a pic of the Otter Green Rucksack that was requested. I put it next to my Tan 258 for perspective. I'm actually the second owner of the rucksack, and it needed some work when I got it. Cleaned it, gave it a beeswax treatment (got this advice directly from Filson) and then saddle soaped and oiled up the leather. The leather treatment really helped. Night and day from when I received it. Good for another lifetime.

    Just got my Med Travel Bag in.. family shot time!

    Interesting that my 256 and 246 are both tan yet look so different. The 256 is about 2 years old and has a nice patina (can't tell from this photo though!)

    Sorry, I've been on a little SF hiatus... has the iGent groupthink now extended from what we buy to where we buy it? Has our fetishization of stuff extended from posting photos of unused bags, right past leaving the tags on, all the way to carrying around our bags inside the bags of the store where we bought them so that the rest of the iGent community knows we bought them at the right place? As I said, I've been away for a while. Someone please fill me in so I can be a good little follower. Thanks.

    I think he meant "determined by SF members to be the best combination of cheapest (e.g. SF Discount)/least aggravation/Affiliate status".

    That's possible. They're going through some major changes these days. I think we might have one of these in stock. Dave has one and loves it. It's been on my list for a while now. I've just put off getting it since I have no real travel plans that I can't cover with what I already have.

    What do you guys think of the new Large Twill Carry On? Looking to pick up one as I always wanted the Pullman, but it's too big.

    That is for sure. It would be interesting to see the changes in their catalogues over time.

    Just grabbed the Computer Briefcase for $75 off so the 25% deal is definitely working.
