    And finally, I picked up one of the nylon backpacks, mostly because it was only $35. Had I known it also had the small wool pouch, I may have gotten a second color. The blue bag has a grey plaid pouch, same one as the black Ranger.

    You can’t beat that price and ability to stow and go. Luckily the Journeyman can also reap those benefits, but the price is certainly much greater. I’m not sure the daybag will compete with the longevity of the Journeyman though, but again, for $28, who cares.

    That’s what I thought but the quality & craftsmanship is more what I was focusing on, it appears to be that of Duluth Pack and Frost River to say the least.

    Again I echo that sentiment with my recent interaction with Filson CS. I was kept in the dark for 2 weeks, and when i finally reached out they went with the same excuses that it was out of stock, even though the whole time the website showed “in stock”. Luckily it was a “gift” to myself so I didn’t suffer waiting for a Christmas Eve delivery.

    Wow, looks like NYC thrifting it is, only a 45 minute train ride separates me from thrifting glory.

    I figured you guys would get a kick out of this. I was shopping at Target today and saw something quite familiar to our topic of “Raw Selvedge Denim”. I use quotes because I doubt for this price, it’s indeed Raw Denim. To me it looks aesthetic at best. All of their clothing products are this new company called “Goodfellow”.

    Also they might’ve stole (or borrowed) some of Filson’s thunder with this backpack

    Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone here would be able to tell me more about this Filson bag, based on these photos? Specifically I am wondering roughly what year it is, and if anyone knows the model # and type of bag. It has Talon zippers. When did Filson switch from Talon to YKK?

    Thanks a lot!!

    I am thinking about selling my Mac Tin Cruiser. This was a 2016 release and the XL’s sold out in about two weeks, it was one and done production. The jacket is a beast. Forest Green wool Mac,lined with flannel and otter green tin cloth overlays over the shoulder and sleeves for extra protection. I’ve only worn it a few times due to my love for my navy single Mac and forest double Mac. It just never found its place in the rotation with everything else I have, but the condition is like new, no marks or signs of wear . I can post pics or message them to anyone that is interested. Size is XL. I’m a 48R and it fits me well, I wear a 46 in both of my other Macs.
    The link below was the original filson add for this.


    Wanted to put it out to this group first before listing on-line.

    That looks like a 242 Large Carry On to me, Canuckle.

    @Canuckle its also an earlier edition, likely mid ‘90s, seeing that it does not have the straps to secure the cloth in place like there was on the later ‘90s talon 242s.

    Thanks guys. I thought it was a 242 but I was confused because the 242's I looked at had some differences like the front zippered pouch and no straps inside of it to secure clothing (I kind of like that actually).

    Like @TinMan3 has stated it’s a first edition #242 Large Carry On with Talon Zippers (phased out in 2002-2003). Based on the strap-less interior and leather I put it at 1993-1994. Filson saw multiple revisions in and around 1995-1996, which included the revision of the Small Duffel (220), from a sans storm flap to a model with a storm flap. Good find but if it were me, I would hold out until you found a 2nd edition with interior clothing straps, it just makes life easier living that clamshell lifestyle

    Packing cubes might make it manageable without the straps.
