Kirk Dudgeonwrote a review of Filson Medium Twill 51L Duffel on December 3, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have used this bag a few times on business travel and here are some initial thoughts.
The build quality is unparalleled in any luggage I have ever owned. I could tell when I first unpacked it that it would outlast me. The Twill while rough to the touch is sturdy and stain resistant (which I discovered to my dismay with a cup of coffee). I have had owned high end Eddie Bauer duffel's and while they are nearly as sturdy they leave something to be desired in stain resistance.
The zippers feels like they can go a million miles and not even feel it.
My only feedback would be that it would be nice to have some smaller external or internal pockets for organization purposes.
