The Filson padded laptop Bag-Briefcase that I tested out is definitely very solid and durable. But let’s admit it: it’s pretty pricey. It’s not a lightweight and water-repellant bag either. The fabricant didn’t reinvent the way to wear a shoulder bag with this model: you carry it in your hand, like a briefcase, or wear it on your shoulder.

The pros are:
Made in US
Fashion and classic bag
High quality materials
The cons are:
Knowing all this, maybe you think I didn’t appreciate my Filson bag. On the contrary, I ended up loving it. Even with all I just wrote, I would put this bag in the fashion icon category. Filson started in 1897 and still makes all their bags in their workshop in Seattle. The company started by dressing mining workers during the big gold rush. It then made a name for itself among hunters in the whole world, with their bags, clothing, and accessories with a unique design and sturdiness.
The bag in question represents this heritage well; the quality of the leather, of the cotton canvas, of the zippers and of the metal pieces is clearly superior. It’s work well done. It’s understandable when you think the same craft workers have been making the same bags for decades.
The Filson Padded Computer Bag, like its name says, has all the features you want in a laptop bag. It’s even big enough to become a week-end bag. There are also many variations and formats of Filson bags.
Thanks to Maxime for his Filson bag review.
