Since the 1890s Filson has been making rugged, outdoor gear from superior materials and to a high standard of workmanship. Indeed, if founder C. C. Filson didn’t stock an item a customer needed, he custom-made it for them. No surprise then that the Filson brand became synonymous with reliability and satisfaction far beyond the United States. Fitting then that Brogue has been a fan of Filson kit for a long time, and in particular its new 24 Hour Tin Briefcase. This stylish bag is an ideal travelling companion thanks to some well thought out features such as a trolley strap on the back so it can be slid onto rolling luggage handles. The two slotted zipper pockets and two interior stow pockets provide ample storage, and there’s also an interior divider to stow your laptop. The 15oz oil finish tin cloth is water-repellent while the bridle leather carrying handle and removable, adjustable shoulder strap have been made with C. C. Filson’s values in mind: built to last – which is probably why the 24 Hour Tin comes with a lifetime guarantee.
