    Plan on picking up a 256... What colour would likely go best with black/dark brown jackets? Different sites and pictures seem to give different indications of what the colour really looks like. And is Crane's with the 15% off coupon the cheapest option to Canada?

    the ebags 20% off doesnt apply to filson. but bing is offering the 30% cashback.

    i asked cranes if i could use the SF discount plus the black friday and of course answer is no. so right now, ebags may be the best place to kop.

    tying to get a small field bag in tan dedicated for my dslr camera use

    Does anyone think it would be possible to dye one of these without ruining the leather?

    Would it be a good idea to put obenaufs on my leather straps and parts on my 257? Or do they come already coated/prepared for hard wear?

    i did. i dont think obenaufs ever hurts. but its annoying not because its hard not go get it on the fabric. but if you do, light soapy water with toothbrush/rag gets it out

    anyone got pictures of the Filson small duffle? I'm considering it for daily purposes. I hope it's really really soft and not rigid in form and bulky.

    can anyone who has a mackinaw cruiser or double mackinaw give their impressions?
    is the double significantly warmer?
    how does either compare to a standard pea coat?

    i'm looking for something to keep warm in a new england winter. walks in the woods, shoveling snow, driving around, going out at night, etc.

    any insight is appreciated

    I've got a mac cruiser in black size 40. It keeps me warm enough as long as I wear a hat, gloves and the right socks. One must remember it does not matter how good a coat is if you fail to dress properly. The double is downright hot. It has to be pretty cold if you want to wear it while being active.

    thanks very much for the info. neither is lined, correct?
    is the cruiser good in say, 10 degrees with a below zero wind chill?
    i'm just wondering if the crusier will be warm enough on its own (with layers underneath, hat, gloves, etc)

    is the crusier at all form fitting or is it "boxy"? worried about wind blowing in

    thanks again

    Yes it is warm enough. It's a bit boxy but it is long enough to keep most of the wind out. If you layer then wind is not an issue. I wear mine deer hunting in 15 degree temps and stay warm.

    It's not really really soft and it's not rigid either. What it will do is soften up as you use it. It's made of 22 ounce waxed twill and bridle leather. It's some of the toughest soft luggage you will ever find.

    An alternate would be the small duffel in wool. They are nice nut nowhere near as durable as the waxed twill stuff. Pictures of both can be found on my site.
