    got my filson japan red label this morning and surprised at the difference between the apolis x filson bag. i LOVE it. i was afraid both would be same/similar color but there is enough of a difference that i dont have two of the same bag. the tote is surprisingly roomy and large without looking too big and def large enough to not be too effeminate ...

    Both of them look amazing! I'm still disappointed I wasn't quick enough to get the navy tote. Unfortunately UO won't be restocking them [​IMG]

    If anyone decides to let theirs go, please let me know!!

    yeah thanks ... i heard they only had access to a dozen total for all of the three colorways in both styles. you can still get them but have to find a proxy from japan [​IMG] edit: also evidence is shown from any other limited collab item UO had access to. always single runs and very limited numbers. case in point were the filson x uo bags in the navy duffle and the white zipped tote. came in, gone in like 1-2 weeks, never ever came back ... much to my dismay. would have loved the navy/blue triple threat of all filson collabs haha

    Does the Filson #262 Rucksack comfortably hold a 15" Macbook Pro in a sleeve? Also where would be the cheapest place online to get it that ships international? <3

    I have a dark green wool filson mackinaw in size 42 but need a 40. This is used but in perfect condition. Anyone with a 40 need to trade for larger size?

    Anybody have recommendations for Filson jackets (or similar brands) that are a little more lightweight?

    I really like the look of the waxed westlake jacket, but it's just way too heavy for southern california. I'd never wear it.

    I have had a very bad shopping experience with Crane Country Store. I ordered a Filson 220 which they processed on 30th June. On 7th July I sent them a email asking for the tracking code. No reply. A few days after this I called the store and they said it should arrive the middle of the following week. At the end of that week, on 11th July the bag has not arrived. I asked them once more by email for the tracking code. No reply. On July 15th I remarked in an email that I still have not received the bag. No reply. Yesterday, I wrote to them "Can I please have the tracking code? The bag is still not here. I hope insurance was bought for this (no Flat Rate box)." No reply.

    I am now in the process of disputing the charge they made to my credit card.

    Good thing you bought that up. I was just about to pull the trigger but I decided to email them and wait a day. I need a bag by the 27th... I might just order direct from Filson.

    i have had several experiences with cranes and they have always been great. i would recommend not emailing though since they are always busy and probably dont have someone dedicated to checking emails.

    just deal with them over the phone. i feel like you should have learned to not use email over and over again when they are not replying. regardless though, they must be swamped or having an off day/week or something. try calling again and tell them its been long overdue. i am sure they will make it right with you.

    You know what? I can put up with bitching but an outright lie I won't put up with.

    Your credit card was never charged. We run the card when we are packing the item in a box and are printing out the shipping label. THAT has always been are policy.

    Crane's missed a chance to take the high road here. I wouldn't refer to it as "bitching", and it would have been better to just explain what's happening / why it's not true.

    Lodging a complaint is one thing. Cross posting it in multiple threads is another and I call that bad mouthing or bitching. Add in an out right lie and you can kiss PC or playing nicey nicey good bye.

    Well, if the dude claims his card was charged and it wasn't, that's not cool. I've shopped with Crane's both over the phone and in store, and they've always been great. I'm pretty sure they have troubles at times with getting product from Filson in a timely manner.

    Yep we've had nothing but trouble for well over a year now. We have no idea what the problem is and our inquiries yield no response from them. They used to fulfill stock orders in two days which was cool. We have pending orders that go back 4 months now with no status updates.

    I like Cranes as well, I would've handled it different is all. Fair enough.
