    I agree on the tighter feel of the inside pockets. Obviously due to the heavier 22 OZ Twill over the lighter materials in the Bedrocks. With my #257 I find the shoulder strap to be on the larger side for cross-body carrying, I have mine right in the middle (I'm 6 Feet tall). I wonder if the Talon Era 256's are shorter in size to the #257's Shoulder straps? @GzStudio please chime in on this one??

    As far as the keychain lanyard I have no comment, because my talon era 257 doesn't come with one HAHA

    Awesome I'm happy for that guy, at least he was upfront with it being a BOYT and not a Filson like that other seller (who was also asking an arm & a leg for it). His price was much more befitting; $88 is an absolute steal for arguably the most high quality Faux Filson

    I have noticed that the longer straps tend to come with the smaller bags. The larger duffles have shorter straps. I have noticed that I do not get or have the same size strap for the identical bags. I think I have like at least 5 talon 256's at home, 2 257's, and 1 talon 258. I might take a look late and compare...

    My feeling is there are 2 strap lengths, but I couldn’t say which applies where. I seem to recall the Filson site selling replacements and offering 2 sizes also.
    Certainly my first Filson (258) has a really long strap and I ended up putting a couple more holes in it.
    Is it possible that longer on briefcases was intended to enable cross body, Wuxi is less likely for a duffle?

    I just checked the Filson site, looks like they sell them in three lengths. I bought one a few years ago because I didn't like the nylon strap for my 24 hour brief. The woman from Filson recommended the longer one so I bought that one and it was very long - left a lot of extra strap flapping around. I even cut it down a bit but never did like the "improvement" I made.
