    You can see the plastic parts and wheels- very good quality.

    Really like this bag.

    Mgrennier, the close-ups are great. It does look like very nice bag.

    My only question to the customer service rep is why did they now feel the need to move the production to DR based on the plastic, wheel expertise if Filson had been making the roller bags in Seattle for years?

    The overseas production on a roller bag would bother me much less than on a duffle or other non wheeled piece.

    The lumberjacks from 1938 called. They want their stuff back.

    NICE!

    (Please disregard if you are an actual lumberjack).

    Sweet stuff. A man who likes quality...

    Oh, sorry just seeing this. I was in the woods sharpening my axe.... :)

    On Quality - Yes. I'm very fortunate.

    LOL and for the low low price of $13.73 it can be all yours to have the privilege of eventually recycling it.

    I would say waxing the bag could help to bring back some of the dark tan color, how dark it gets depends on the amount of layers you apply. I made a tub of home made wax couple months back (20% bee, 80% Paraffin) and applied it on my 14 year old 256 (made in Nov 2003) recently when I laundered it due to dirt and smell.

    Here's an album of the re-proofing. http://imgur.com/a/7kcIF < link for those interested.
    Will just post a couple of pictures here:

    Notice the bottom corners where the white twill is showing

    Bottom panel waxed while top area un-waxed under the handles

    [​IMG]

    100% re-proofed, 4-5 coats of my home-made wax in general.

    Hope the recent consensus that quality has improved together with the recent price adjustment (have lost count of the number of price adjustments these couple of years)

    Dear letsi,


    thanks a lot for your advice. Actually this is exactly what Filson CS also adviced me.

    Did that two days ago, and yes, the twill was dry like a dessert ...


    Thanks a lot
