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).
