A friend of the blog (from Vancouver, BC) recently emailed me some pictures of his beautiful Filson 232 Field Bag with a perfect patina. I wanted to feature his bag on the site because it is a great example of how these bags age over time. The leather has a great vintage character to it and the rugged twill is just getting broken in. Classic tan truly does get better and better with age!
This week, I am selling a brand new Filson 220 small Duffel Bag in Otter Green. This bag includes the shoulder strap and all of the tags are still attached (except for the price tag). I purchased this bag from the local Filson dealer for review purposes.
Here is the description from the Filson web site: Our water-repellent heavy-duty Small Duffle is designed to carry plenty of cargo and built to take a beating. Features an inside pocket at each end, leather pulls, leather grip with two-snap closure, adjustable and removable leather shoulder strap with leather pad. One-way brass zipper. Made in USA
This duffle bag measures 18″ W x 10 ” H x 11″ D
The retail price of the 220 is $225 (plus tax). I am selling this one for $180 USD including USPS Priority Mail shipping with Delivery Confirmation to CONUS. This bag has been SOLD
This week, I am selling a brand new Filson 256 Original Briefcase in Otter Green. The tags have been removed, but the bag has never been used and is 100% new (including the shoulder strap).
Here is the description from the Filson web site: Inside is a wide carrying compartment, two full-length open pockets and sewn-on compartments for calculator, business cards, pencils and pens. Narrow pockets on both ends and full-length outer pockets on both sides. Meets carry-on requirements. Made in USA.
This bag measures 16″ W x 12 1/2″ H x 4″ D
I use my tan 256 every single day and it is perhaps the most versatile daily-use bag that Filson makes. Here is your chance to own one at a significant discount. The retail price of the 256 is $225 (plus tax). This bag has been SOLD.
From time to time, I will buy certain items specifically for review purposes or will receive multiple colors of the same item. I have decided to offer my readers the opportunity to purchase these items at a discount and will be posting the first sale item later today:)
