In Your Words: Charles’ 10 Year Old Briefcase

May 2, 2013
Filed in: Heritage, In Your Words

In Your Words: Charles' Filson Briefcase‘In Your Words’ explores the incredible stories we’ve received from Filson fans across the globe.  Send us your own experiences with our clothing or product here for a chance to be featured on the Filson Life blog.  Charles commuted daily by plane with his Filson briefcase and after ten years of loyal service, he’s ready for his next.

Well, I am not sure how many years I have had this great bag but it is close to 10.  I commute by small plane to rural areas on the plains of Colorado and Kansas daily.  This bag has made all the trips with me.  I was hoping maybe to get a discount on its replacement.  I laughed a little when I saw “nearly indestructible ” in its description.  It has truly been a great bag.

I would be willing to send it to you if you wanted to see its weak spots over time.  It had been showing some wear on the corners but finally, a wear spot came wide open and stuff can fall out.   I would recommend this bag to anyone.  Was looking to replace with the same in the otter green color, style #70257.  My Filson duffles are still going strong but do not get the daily use this bag sees.  Thanks for your consideration.  For your information, this is the only Filson product I have ever seen wear out (I own 2 overalls, 3 coats, 2 duffles, and 1 work bag).

  • This bag is 10 years old and already ripped to shreds? How is this good quality? I have Made in China bags that last longer than this.

  • I own a briefcase as well. at first i was impressed by the apparently heavy quality and the idea that this bag could accompany me a life time. but after a year of everyday use – i carry it like a messenger-bag – it had to be replaced. it was actually worn out in several spots that rubbed on my jacket. the service however was great and the bag replaced without complications. still that left the aftertaste of restricted durability.
