RCS Review: The Filson 2-Zip Travel Kit

So I know I talked about this in last week’s Lust piece, but I found this Filson 2-zip Travel Kit on sale for $79 on Amazon (link).  I saw this over at Sid’s last week when previewing their sale, and knew I had to have it.  Here’s the deal: I have the original Filson Travel Kit but I don’t use it that much, especially when traveling with Mrs. RCS.  The original is great for a single guy traveling, but the canvas construction gives it a little more bulk, and doesn’t seem to use the real estate very well.

This 2-zip model seems to be the answer.  It is a little bigger in size, but the space is much more efficient as compared to it’s older brother.   The two zippers allow for easy access to anything and everything.  Why did I choose orange?  Because.  That’s why.  In additions, it’s lighter than the dark green or navy, so it won’t look as dirty.  The kit is made of coated cotton, so this can be cleaned up when needed.  This will be going with us this weekend during #48HoursInCleveland…I’ll let you know how it travels.

    That velcro is unfortunate. A deal breaker for me.
