    Does anyone know where I get them in Toronto? I checked the authorized dealers on their website and they are only in Alberta and Quebec. Shipping and duties could rake up to $90 on a $250 bag on online orders as suggested on their site.

    I thought Filson was made in the USA... which means no duties...possibly HST

    Thanks, I'm definitely thinking of getting the small duffle (220) to carry my gym gear and clothes. When can I get a good deal on it? Christmas?

    Yeah, there's a few places. They're rather pricey, but available. 2 shops in Yorkville off the top of my head had them last time I checked - Uncle Otis and TNT Blue.

    I'm in Toronto and have a tan 257 I want to sell. Bought last year, still in very good shape. $200. You want?

    Thinking of pulling the trigger on a 256 or 257 this winter....never thought 'd have such a tough time deciding between the two though.

    Been eyeing that one as well. Seems more appropriate. 240 it is then.

    Oh, crap. Now if you hate it you're going to blame me. [​IMG]

    You won't, though.

    Nice people. Grabbed a 257 tan couple of weeks ago. Call ahead to see if in stock. Prepare to pay a Canadian premium.

    The phone is your friend. Shipping to Canada is not that expensive. Try the number in my sig before you place a local order.

    i wanna say that i got that bag in 2005.

    i work as an airline pilot though so i travel with it constantly and i am sure that has helped it's patina develop.
