    I've recently ordered the Filson Medium Duffel and I'm wondering how many of you have used it as a bag for 3-7 day trips. I also have a large wheeled duffel coming and I've seen that in person so I know it's pretty big.

    Anyway, if you've all used the medium duffel I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. I ordered it in Brown so it handles airline handling and scuffs, etc better.

    Yep, Filson did it for 20 bucks for me. Would definitely recommend it.

    I've used it for a 3 week trip. Really depends on how much you pack.

    anyone has pictures of an aged 256/257 in brown?

    Any inputs on the 230 if it can be used as a camera bag?

    Just got my Filson 223 Duffle (tan). This thing is built like a tank.

    Thanks. I'm a light packer. Should work. Ideally I'd like to get the garment bag and medium duffel and I think between the two I can travel for 2-4 weeks at a time with the two bags.

    Cable Car Outfitters already charged my credit car for my Filson 256 with what I think should be the handgrip and shipping. Total is $192.50 with the discount and shipping. Not expected to ship till 25 February is what I was told from initial follow up on my order..

    Hey guys, I just lost an ebay bid for a Filson Rucksack. Thing is I would have had the winning bid, but at the last second it restricted my country even though i'd have it shipped to the US. (Im in Toronto)

    167.50 was the winning bid, lightly used. I woulda bid up to 180.

    If anyone has one sitting around, please let me know. I need one for a trip to europe and would be happy with a lightly used one in tan or otter green.

    i posted in the wanted in B&S, but I figured id post here looking for help.

    Thanks so much,
    Danny

    Cable Car will order it from Filson. Takes about 4-5 days to get to them if the bag is in stock at Filson and then they'll ship it out to you.

    At their discount price? I don't see the rucksack listed on their site. not arguing, just wondering, what incentive would they have to sell a product they have to special order at a discount?

    Cable Car ordered a brown 258 for me on Monday because they didn't have it in stock and also gave me the 30% discount. Also Glens Outdoors http://www.glensoutdoors.com still has the 25% off till tonight with code LASTCHANCE and free shipping, they would be worth a try too. Ordered the black oiled Filson weekender coat plus a wool jacket liner this morning from them.


    Figured I might as well get a new coat to go with the case.
