Exactly what I was looking for! Durable, stylish, just enough fine trim to make it look classy but not shoved in your face. Plus the lifetime guarantee on top of it all?! I’m all in! Probably going to get the larger size soon for longer trips.
First, it's clear this bag is well made. Care was clearly taken in its assembly. For me, the materials came up wanting. the pebbled finish on the leather was not my thing. The canvas though stout I'm sure felt thin and the webbing shoulder strap was not a plus. Overall this bag just did not feel like $265 dollars to me. It's a full $100 less than the equivalent Filson bag making it attractive but for me, I'd buy the Filson first.
Hey Oakley, I really appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. I getcha re: the higher grain leather vs. the smooth leather used by Filson. We lean toward a true full-grain leather that has the grain and other natural variations still visible. Neither is better / worse, just a different approach. Our 18 oz waxed canvas is very durable and the same weight as Filson's tin cloth; in fact, we've shared a common supplier for the fabric. We did choose to use a web strap with a leather shoulder pad for Field Duffle to help keep the cost down a bit on this item; it's about the only place we spared some expense. Filson's leather strap is indeed very nice, totally agree. I hope you give us a chance in the future to please you! ~ Chuck, Founder & Mission Man
Quality material and put together nicely!
