    I don't think either one fits carry-on requirements. You need the small.

    Modification idea... I find with my 257 loaded with laptop and books it's really heavy to carry by handle or even shoulder strap, so I run the shoulder strap through the closed handles (between them), and put the strap on the longest setting. This makes two loops (one on either side of the handles) and then I wear it as a two shouldered packpack, across my back horizontally.

    anyone try that?

    kinda like this right? (ie horizontal across the back, although two shoulder loops) It looks a little funky, and also probably only works if you're small like us, but I think it does work.

    What you posted isn't a Filson bag (unless I'm mistaken), so why did you post it in this thread?

    Yeah - it looks something like that. You just need to be small enough to fit under the straps

    Just tried this and it actually works pretty well. I can't see a situation where I would ever do it, but it does work.

    I had an extra series of holes punched in the shoulder strap so that I can cinch it up tight and wear it like a messenger bag. I find that this is how I carry my 257 most of the time.

    Are you looking to use this as an airline carry-on? If yes, neither the large or XL duffel bags will work...both are huge, the XL could literally hold a body (or two). Even the medium duffel is too large for this when backed to the brim...but if you leave some room you should be fine.

    I like the filson pullman for traveling...works as a carry-on on most airlines, especially when it is not stuffed. It is also a lot easier to pack and keep organized than the duffel bags I have...and it is also a lot easier to carry as well.

    +1

    I have a pullman that I use every time I fly, and I've been able to carry it on even when stuffed. Because the bag isn't rigid like the standard rectangular roller carry-on, it's able to fit into the overhead bins easily. Plus the interior straps are great to keep stuff separated.

    Has anyone used both the 257 and 258? I have a 257, which I love, but I got a new work laptop that just barely fits with my other stuff. I'm considering upgrading to the 258, and the dimensions look slightly larger, but I'm not sure what effect the exterior pocket has on those measurements. I might just have to take my computer down to the flagship store and try it out.

    Has anyone ordered from Crane's recently?
