The Filson Tin Cloth Backpack

Admittedly, I haven’t carried a backpack since high school.  I understand their functionality, but they never really worked for my day-to-day environment.  I get it, though.

Over the last couple of years, our peripherals have gotten smaller.  What used to be huge Dell laptops have turned into Macbook Airs and iPads.  Spiral notebooks have turned into Moleskines and Word. notebooks.  Filson released their Tin Cloth Backpack and it seems to be just the right size.

Available in tan, black, and otter green, these colors should satisfy any palate.

Some details, thanks to Filson’s Facebook page:

So what do you think?  Is this something that you would use?

    I like the functionality, but the style leaves something to be desired. I prefer the look of a Duluth Pack, or Frost River, and this coming from a devout Filson fan.

    I regularly agree with your reviews and occasionally even make decisions on your recommendations, but I have to respectfully disagree on this one. In my totally biased and uneducated opinion, backpacks are for little kids and people going camping. I am sure there are other applications but I just wouldn’t see myself spending Filson money on a Filson backpack.

    I love Filson, but this backpack is feminine.

    Thanks for your feedback, folks. This was simply for discussion, not for promotion.

    just ordered this backpack in black for a trip abroad. doesn’t strike me as particularly feminine, but doesn’t matter either way to me (being female). like the separate iPad case and the option of reaching in to the side of the bag for my camera. hope it travels as well as i’m wanting it to travel. 😉
