    Does anyone have/use the Filson travel kit? Feedback on it? I have a much less expensive kit that I use, and recently passed up on a Travel Kit that was on sale, just wondering whether people see it as something worth spending on.

    Short answer? Yes. The one on sale is an absolute steal for $29. It has accompanied me throughout the US and overseas and is the perfect size, specifically for business travel.

    Yes. I have the small travel kit and it’s excellent.

    I bought one and tried it - was just a wee bit too small for my for traveling. I carry a Braun electric shaver when I travel and that, combined with everything else was just a touch too small.

    I gave it to my college-aged son and he loves it (it's his first Filson "bag"). I ended up going with the nylon Travel Pack. The size of it fits right between the traditional dopp kit and the smaller, triangular one (that I agree is a steal at $29.90).

    Love my Travel Pack although I realize the nylon doesn't make it a TRUE Filson....

    Hello all! Greetings from Italy... I've been out of the country for the last two weeks and without reliable internet for most of my time abroad. I've enjoyed checking in when I had to opportunity and catching up on the conversation I have missed... 92 unread new messages last night!

    Unfortunately I did not travel with any Filson gear this trip as I needed something a little larger than any of my current bags, but not so big I couldn't carry it on the flight. I ended up traveling with a GORUCK GR1 (26L) as my personal item and a Patagonia MLC for my carry on bag. These are two other companies I love and own a lot of their gear!

    While in Italy, I stumbled across a store across from the Pantheon in Rome that carried Filson. Of course I went inside to browse, but ended up purchasing an Italian made jacket by a brand, Pomandere... quality feels on par Filson and the style resembles the short cruiser mixed with one of the jackets from Rogue Territory (another brand you should check out if you haven't!)

    In the air currently and on my way to ATL, should be there in 6 hours or so... then a short flight back to Texas.

    It'll be good to be home.

    Cheers!
