Cool, thanks. Mine doesn't actually smell, fortunately. Just kinda oily.
Of the oiliness? It'd be kind of hard to capture in a photograph. It's more of a tactile thing.
Damn need to follow this thread more closely.....
Yes just call the store. Dave, Chuck, Shane, Carolyn and maybe myself are who you would talk to about anything Filson related.
Concerning the oiled trucker jackets. Any of the Filson oiled products may feel greasy and have a very distinctive smell. Wear the hell out of it and the greasy feeling will fade away along with the smell. It's a paraffin based waterproofing wax that won't hurt you or anything else. Just keep in mind that the wax is what keeps it wind and water resistant so if you let it dry out and don't reapply it you might not want to go for a walk in the rain.
Rad, thanks. And yeah, bought it for the wind and water resistance, so that's perfect. It came with a container of wax, so I should be ok to keep it going.
i want to see pics of someone wearing the jacket in real life
There's already one in WAYWT, and I want to say it's in the "best of" thread as well.
I'll try to take a pic soon and post it here. Bear in mind that it's gonna be stiff and awkward, since the jacket's boxfresh and needs to be broken in.
My 14 month old Filson 258 in tan ... I carry this everyday.
i have found much better deals from this place than cranes
i have no financial motivation just saying...
Those are retail prices, just sayin.
you're so smart haha
call cranes get your quote
call outdoor and tell them to beat it and they will
try it bud
Hickey Freeman is having their FF sale at this moment (ending tonight actually).
The 25% off code HICKEYFF can also be applied to the filson bags they carry online
The selection is limited though, only 220s in tan and 252 Leather Field Satchels.
Does anyone have any experience with their belts? I would like to see a picture of the 1.5 inch belt while someone is wearing it. Or just a general review would be good.
hey david crane
i ordered a filson 256 from you 2 years ago. it took me to graduation, and now it's taken me through a year of working.
the 1.5 is pretty wide, make sure it fits. The bridle leather is what you'd expect and I thought the hardware was good. Their site says to use your waist size, but I found this is wrong. They are sized just like normal belts, i.e. get 1-2" larger than your pants size (at least this was the case ~5 years ago).
