    I have not worn a Filson Tin Cruiser, but I do have a double mackinaw cruiser, size 40. I'm about 185cm & 77kg (6'1"-2"/170lbs) and this fits well. Room enough to layer beneath if needed, without feeling too loose if worn over just one shirt.

    As for tin cloth, the tin packer hat I have did shrink substantially after a long hot summer of Louisiana rainstorms & sun, so that might be something to take into consideration. The shrinkage was enough I'm thinking of buying a replacement one size up & selling the old one secondhand; it's just too tight now to wear comfortably. Apart from that one issue the hat is superb & indestructible - It got crushed under several hundred pounds of rusty fire escape landing stock for most of an afternoon & emerged unscathed...

    Has anyone else had issues with significant tin cloth shrinkage after heavy exposure to rain &/or sun?

    Most of this is still crazy overpriced or things like sunglasses & socks I would never bother to buy from them anyway. But a few of the shirts look like relative bargains, as do the raincoat, women's logger jacket, & bomber jacket. Most notably the all-season raincoat is marked down to $180 from about $300, just cuz they're discontinuing that blue color. Yesterday four different styles of Red Wing boots were also included, though today they've mysteriously disappeared.

    I'm looking to buy the filson small duffle bag (220) in dark brown, but it is sold out everywhere and on backorder until mid April, does anyone know where I can get a hold of one? I'm considering the tan one as they have in stock but I must say I like the dark brown one better.

    Hi guys! I searched the site for "73008" and got nothin' - hopefully this question hasn't been answered yet on the thread.

    I was thinking about (eventually, maybe, one day) getting a Filson bag for me and my laptop and I'd like your opinion. I'm not rich and I was wondering if there was really a cost-effective difference between the 257, 258, 73012, and 73010 (all being pushed as "laptop bags") and the 73008 - which is cheaper than any of them and looks to me to have more versatility.

    Laptop size is not a problem (my guy is 13" and so fits pretty much everywhere) but I don't want to buy something with limited functionality but on the other hand I don't want to spend twice to twice.5 the money on something I don't really need!

    halp guyz, halp!

    I got the 258 and never use it because it ends up being too damn heavy even when all I'm carrying is the 13" lappy, power adapter, mouse, and small notebook.

    I end up just using my zipper tote with the lappy + sleeve.

    Kapli, follow this link.

    It's out of stock there as well, on backorder until April.

    I don't think anyone has the dark brown.

    What do you guys think? Should I get the tan one or wait until April for the dark brown?

    i like the original tan but it gets dirty easier (kind of the point though as it looks great used and aged)

    Don't rush if you want the tan one. I have the Small Duffle in tan and the 256 in Tan. I love them both. I don't think the brown would age as well as these have started to.

    Has anyone purcahsed the 1 1/2" double belt? Trying to decide between that and the regular bridle leather one, not sure if it would be too much of a good thing. Thx.

    I've been trying to decide between a wool weekender coat or a vintage USN peacoat to be my informal cold-weather coat. I think the peacoat is sharper looking, but the weekender coat is probably a lot more practical. Any thoughts?

    I have a 1 1/4 bridle belt. Filson makes really nice, no-nonsense belts. I may buy the 1.5 inch one too in the future.

    If you don't either always tuck your shirts in or wear your pants very low I think you'd be better off passing on the double belts; thick belts can just end up making bottom shirt buttons pulll and slightly worsen your apparent proportions.

    I just recieved my brown Filson 258 bag from Anonymouschris, I am very happy with how big it is. I was a little worried it would be "too big" like many have said on here but it's the perfect size, enough for notebooks, my laptop and plenty of room for books for the day.

    The padding isn't as dense as I thought it would be which was actually a good thing for me, it doesn't look bulky.

    I applied a layer of Obenauf's on the leather when I recieved it.

    What's recommended to fit a medium sized camera + laptop AND/OR sweater

    Mainly to fit camera and laptop but would like to fit sweater as well, and possibly upgrade to various DSLR + lenses in the future.

    Regards

    I use the double belt as a gun belt. do yourself a favor and stick with a single layer belt.

    I can pull that off with a 257 to a point. You would be better off looking at real camera bags if you're going to be setting yourself up with a decent kit.
