    Yeah, it is the actual grip that you see on the handle straps on the 257 bag installed on the 256. Basically an additional piece of leather that makes carrying the bag by the handle straps easier. I had Crane's install one on my 256 and it was definitely worth the 20 bucks.

    ah ok thanks. seems like it would be useful but $20 for a small piece of leather =(

    Do you guys know where I can get the 256 for the cheapest price including shipping right now?

    $189 at Crane's or is there a better deal that I haven't found out there?

    Just checked the price of a 256 at a local shop. $400. Danish pricing is great [​IMG]

    Anyone know any good products for the preventing the Bridle leather straps on Filson bags from cracking and drying up?

    I use Obenauf LP on the bridle leather on my filson bags. Works great! I recently bought a very distressed Filson 257 from ebay and the leather was very thirsty, dry and starting to crack. I conditioned with Obenauf LP and it came out great.

    Hilton's Tent City has it listed at 189 and there is a 10% of code on their site right now. Occasionally they will list a 15% off code if you want to wait. That is what I did and where I got mine.

    make sure to wander around every floor in there. It is one of the most amazing places in town. If you are driving make sure to try and avoid it when there is an event at the Garden as it is about 2 blocks from there. Green and orange line are close by if you are using public transportation, ie T.
