Tailgate Review

May 2011
For the traveling bird hunter who packs loads of gear, nothing beats a roomy duffle bag. And for style as well as function, nothing beats a Filson bag. Built of 22-ounce 100% cotton oil finished water repellent rugged twill with heavy-duty brass zippers, the duffles are tough enough to take everything baggage handlers can dish out. With accents of 100% genuine bridle leather, they are good looking and, as reviewers of Filson's website mention, easy to identify when they appear at the luggage gate. How to improve on near-perfection? Make a loaded bag easier to transport. Filson's Extra Large Wheeled Duffle Bag (#284) adds two ball-bearing rollerblade wheels and a base of three heavy-duty sled runners that make it easy to roll the bag from location to location and to slide it in place once it is stashed. W tested one of these last fall over several weeks and on a slew of trips. It can hold much more than we can comfortably carry, so we were grateful for the wheels. A note of caution, however, is in order: It's large capacity also mean it can handle enough gear to make the combined weight of the bag and contents exceed the 50-pound limit established by airlines. Contrasted to a hard-sided suitcase or a duffle with a hard-framed "basement," the canvas-walled #284 was easier to stow and fit into place amid other luggage in the back of a vehicle. It is available in three colors: brown, tan and otter green. Its dimensions: 34 1/2" wide by 13 3/4" high by 13 3/4" deep.
