    I really want a Navy small duffle... I keep hoping they'll release one before Christmas but it's not looking like it... How much was that navy Harris Tweed bag above?

    Good luck with that. I'm not at liberty to discuss the details but good luck finding any deals.

    i was lucky to find a deal last minute, but i would have happily paid full MSRP. i was actually about to when a friend emailed me about the end.com first time buyer thing and that they had what i wanted. they are worth every penny at full price and its probably the best kop i made all year.

    I had a quick look at my 258 and 256 and if you look very closely there are some slight lighter lines. Some have probably been there since day 1 and others have probably been added in daily use. I'd live with it unless it really annoys you. After a while the bag is going to get additional character.

    Crane's, do you know if a navy 257 is ever going to happen?

    Those lines are normal and to be expected. It's the nature of waxed twill or tin cloth. It is not a defect.



    I would say so but the question is when.

    Hi guys, I'm new here. I'm very interested in the 70262 but am unable to see one in real life thus i need the help from fellow forumers.

    Firstly, I'm 6.3 foot. Is this bag to small for someone my size?
    2nd, I'm looking to fit a 15 inch mbp or alienware 14 in it. Is it possible?

    Thanks a lot for your help, i really love the filson look but am not looking at a messenger as i would like better weight distribution carrying my stuff. If it doesnt fit the above 2 criteria any other recommendation which is as kickass as filson?

    The bag is probably not too small for you, but the shoulder strap may be too short. Filson has recently started selling replacement straps, including this one I use with my Field Satchel.

    I wonder if you called Filson and asked nicely, if they'd be able to ship a longer strap to you with your purchase instead of the standard size one.

    Large duffle next to the small duffle. I've used the small duffle as a carryon and it works well. It's also a good weekend bag, and if you don't care about the clothing inside being balled up, you could fit a lot of stuff into it. I think you could fit 2 basketballs into the small duffle, with room to spare. I'm going to use the large duffle this weekend on a road trip for the first time. It's a beast, and more than I need for this trip, but it's nice to have room inside and not have to dig through things to find what I need.
