    i prefer to look of the zippered tote, but this does look like a good deal at that price

    Agreed. I prefer the look of the zippered tote. I'm not thrilled about the shape of this tote.

    Hi, does anyone here happen to have a spare shoulder strap for a 256 that they would be willing to sell?

    Thanks! :)

    I recently saw two used ones on ebay go for $70+ -- probably better to just buy a new briefcase and resell it without the strap ;)

    Did you try contacting Filson or one of their retailers about buying one?

    If they charge what the post office charges, that would probably be the most reasonable option, but that doesn't really tell you how much it will cost.

    I don't know if it is a medium box since the seller used its own box not the one sold by USPS.

    By the way the box including the 256 weights 4 lbs 7.7 oz. I did a simulation for Australia it is $ 50.55.

    If you want insurance, it is an additional $5.90.

    Hope it helps.

    That sucks! I'm glad I was able to get my 257 before the expiration of the sale. I bookmarked Glenns just in case they have the sale again.

    Yeah, it's a shame. I was going to pull the trigger on a wool whipcord jacket but oh well. Maybe in the fall.
