    Cool video. You can almost smell the musty canvas and worn leather in that room. I need to make a trip to Seattle one day. We should all do a meet-up there with Filson bags, whiskey and cigars.

    I realize you are selling those Talon era bags and not amassing a Talonite arsenal, but I don't know how you do it!! I couldn't be surrounded by all those one-of-a-kind masterpieces all day; the smell of all that pre-bedrock leather and the vintage twill....I'd have a constant woody to be totally honest :fonz:

    Since the straps I was referring to are Pre-Bedrock, Talon era pad-less straps I'd be even more curious to see if they offered the same options way back when....or if each bag had it's own length based upon the functions and intended usage

    You had me at Whiskey and Cigars.....I AM SO THERE......only bring a gas mask cause I don't think you could take anymore mustiness after your "little" Talon era 256 project :rotflmao:

    I'm going to brave it out and take it on the road with me next week. I'm home this week so it's currently sitting outside in the Florida sun - trying to dry it out as much as I can. Not too bad, really, but I'm most worried when I'm sitting in a small conference room with my customer and it smells like an old Army Surplus store in there.

    I may spray it with some cheap vodka as has been recommended but, since life is too short to drink cheap anything, I don't have any cheap vodka on hand.

    It is nice to have all these bags. Hard to sell them as well, but it's what I'm doing. No need to hoard as I have a good amount of $ currently invested in my stock. I keep and use my favorites and move on when another beauty comes along. 'vintage' market has slowed a little bit right now and should pick up shortly, I will be ready. I do enjoy seeing my rack of bags on a daily basis though :)

    I'm trying this Instagram thing and might be able to help move some product...Those pics were my first, but not my last. going to try again today with another lovely 256 and tote.

    Speaking of that tote, I was cleaning it this morning in anticipation of taking a picture and was able to paper date the tote thanks to a receipt inside. Leather is absolutely amazing for this talon era tote....
