    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes, this bag does have the bigger leather reinforcement that the D ring attaches to. I can't find the tag with model information. Here is what the bag looked like before I restored it.

    I need some opinions, I'm kind of all over the place. I need something I can carry my computer in and some clothes for constant 2 to 3 day business trips. Ideally would like to dump the clothes off at hotel and use bag during workday. Love the look of the Original brief but obviously too small, is the 48 hour bag the way to go?

    Also, is there a go to place for ordering (new) bags?

    Rezzor - I had exactly the same question late last year. My answer ended up being the 48 hour duffle. It's pretty capacious and I find the front pockets essential for organization.
    Main body will take suit, shirts and shoes plus a 15in MacBook Pro.
    I use a packing cube and offload clothes etc at hotel. Bag is quite large with just laptop and day stuff, but sits well on shoulder when using the longer handles rather than the shoulder strap.

    For reference I considered the sportsmans bag/ excursion bag which I concluded to be too boxy and the small duffle which was less easy to organize things in. I didn't consider the small Pullman because I have the large version and wanted something different. Padded computer bag might be a candidate but isn't really large enough- this is in fact my day to day bag and it only really manages computer, lunch and a pair of shoes. It copes with an overnight but not more.

    Hope this helps. I really like my 48 hr. Tin cloth is lighter to carry and patinas nicely and the bag just looks good and well proportioned. My only change would be a pocket on the back rather than the luggage handle loop, but that's minor.

    Here is a quick packing dump pic. Poor quality but you get the idea.

    Just curious, how many Filson bags do you guys own? Ever since I bought my first Filson 5-6 years ago I can't seem to stop adding to my collection.
