A short one anyways. Last week I received the special Filson x Apolis Activism briefcase that I had ordered several months ago. I ended up not keeping it, which I’ll explain in a moment. Except for the fabric, it’s the same in every aspect as the regular Filson 256 model, and it even comes with several nice pencils. The fabric itself though was not as heavy as I was hoping it would be and it didn’t feel as strong, nor did it seem like it was treated. Overall it’s definitely a nice bag and would serve fine for daily needs, but if you need something heavy duty I would recommend getting the regular models instead.
If you’re still hunting for one, it looks like the Apolis guys are taking more preorders for another delivery in November: http://www.apolisactivism.com/?event=startPreorder
Update – Crane’s Country Store in Missouri has a few for sale on their website: Link. They’re great folks to deal with and they’re whom I order most of my Filson gear from.
