Filson Patina

I am always looking for great pictures of Filson bags in their natural habitat. Nothing looks better than Filson tan with some hard-earned patina. This picture always grabs my attention (although I could not track down the original source of the photo) and I wanted to share it with everyone.

I really like the way that the canvas has darkened, while both the overall structure of the bag and the bridle leather have softened.  Also note the “X” running through the Filson tag, which indicates that this bag was a “factory second” purchased in Seattle. That detail adds to the character of the picture, showing that all Filson products, even those not meeting Filson’s stringent quality-control, are built to stand the test of time.


SOLD: Filson 256 Original Briefcase

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.
