    Thanks! Yeah, I ordered a 256 in tan from Glens (the only one they had in stock) a couple weeks ago with the discount. but they don't have the rucksack. are you saying they'll order it? i was very satisfied with Glen's customer service.


    I actually just found a place id never heard of, WorkingPerson.com who have it on sale for $207 and then I found a company discount code for 10% off bringing it to $186 including shipping (not to canada, but i have a friend in buffalo i can ship to). Im sure I cant beat that for a brand new one.

    260- 25% from glens would be $195 if my math is correct.

    Only a few months - not enough to begin to opine on how the brown will wear.

    Good news! So I checked and for some reason the Otter Green Rucksack was being offered at http://www.workingperson.com for $187, $20 less than the Tan Version. This made no sense, so I chatted with their online chat and explained the situation. She understood and credited me the difference.

    So with the extra 10% off with code "TY2012", I got the tan rucksack brand new, shipped, for $166, $11's less than what it would have cost to win the used one ebay, and almost $100 less than the filson site.

    Crazy!

    P.s. they have a bunch of other filson bags on sale plus the 10% off coupon i found. Great day!

    Yeah, working person seems to have great prices. I just ordered a Filson Garment Bag which is $550 on Filsons site and with 3 day shipping got it from workingperson.com for $460 INCLUDING the shipping. Thanks for the tip & coupon code!!!!

    Anyone on here used the Filson Garment Bag?

    Sounds like a good idea.

    Gigantic as in... spacious. I will try to post some pics this week of what all I carry in it, but the rundown is my laptop w/ accessories, a small library of books and papers for research, and and a closet's worth of supplies. I had been able to fit most of this in my previous bag, which was rather more sleek, but stretched to the max with everything in it. the 258 on the other hand really seems to be about half way between satchel and carry on. Were I to need it, I am certain that I could still fit a change of clothes into the bag without needing to move anything to the outer pockets. It's my first Filson though, so I don't really have any way to compare it to other models.

    The 256 comes out to $189. That price is fantastic!

    Edit: Thanks for the heads up!!

    Heads up, workingperson charges sales tax in CA, MI and IN. So the price is on par with Cranes.
    Also Glens Outdoors isn't that great of a deal since their markup is already 15-20 above MSRP.

    Good stuff, guys! Glad my find benefitted some of you as well!

    WorkingPerson let me know that it would take 5 or 6 days to receive the rucksack from filson since they dont stock it. But that's fine. Im in no rush. So long as I receive my bag by July ;)

    Glen's must have raised the price due to the surge of purchases. My 257 cost $195 shipped. Code is still working though with the price hike it's a significantly lesser discount.

    Hilton's Tent City has a 15% off coupon for all Filson Products: FSNREG11

    The best part is the free ground shipping for orders over $50.00

    I just picked up a zippered tote bag for $114.75

    the 256 will come out to $182.75 and 257 $221.00.

    If you see a lower price they'll match it. You just have to call them. I've actually price matched through them a lot (even on super heavily discounted items) and they were always cool about pricematching.

    So I received my filson 256 last week (it ended up being about $170 altogether from Cable Car Clothiers with the discount) and have to report that I'm very pleased and impressed by it so far. It feels incredibly sturdy. As promised, pics of it in brown. I'm not much of a photographer so I tried taking pics of it different settings as it seems to affect how the colour looks.

    Comparing my pics with the Otter Green, I do think that the green looks better as there is more of a contrast between the brown of the straps with the green of the canvas. Having said that, I still like the colour of the brown and hope that it will age well over time.

    I'm considering the brown for office environment although color wise prefer the tan with more contrast..thanks for posting yours they look great [​IMG] not many pics of a well aged brown I can find..

    anyway would a medium field bag (232) looks ok for office wear?How does it compare between the 232 and the carry on small bag (240)(I think it will be better to have the zip to secure the items)?any comments?
