I like that. May have to pull the trigger.
Thanks for the pictures. Refreshing to see something other than otter, brown, and tan.
Red sold out online. Snagged the last red one in the store via phone. Old lady gonna be pleased.
I have a tan zippered tote...the snaps on the side pockets of the red totes are great. Wish that was a standard feature...may just add some myself.
For those who purchased a Filson bag from the Cable Car Clothiers (SF, CA), did you find an invoice in the package ?
My bag is in the customs waiting for clearance.
Yeah, I got one.
It's been asked before, but I haven't seen an answer: I have a Filson 257, which I love. I do not love the shoulder strap, however. The underside of the pad is very smooth so it slips off of my shoulder. This constant slippage makes it essentially useless to me.
Anybody have a fix to share?
A 257 could easily be used as an overnite bag. There are compartments on each end for laptop and organization but a decently sizing middle area:
I'd probably be able to go 4-5 nights with just a 257.
Thanks Facet ! Hope to get it soon !
I'm still waiting on my 256 (otter green) from Cable Car to ship. Think I have another week before that happens. Hopefully it will be drop shipped..
does it take that long for cable car to start shipping?
It depends on how you pack. I may be able to swing one night with my 257 but even that'd be tough as I normally pack business attire. If I wasn't traveling for business, I'd likely not need to carry my briefcase so would opt for something else, like an overnight bag. Even for casual attire, most folks would be hard pressed to get 4-5 nights info a 257 especially if they were carrying a laptop, charger, etc.
Perhaps 4-5 nights at a nudist colony might work
