Fall is a prime season for many things, chief among them gearing up in rugged fashion to hit the road in style. I’m a big fan of fall road trips through the Northeast and beyond, and if you happen to feel the same way, then I’ve got just the bag for you to shop on this crisp fall day. One of the best men’s duffle bags in question comes from Filson, the famed Pacific Northwest heritage outfitter we’ve been talking about quite a bit on the blog. It’s a legendary piece in its own right — that’d be the Filson Large Duffle — with the sort of pedigree and functionality that nearly speaks for itself (not unlike some of the best men’s wool coats from Filson, for instance).
The Filson Large Duffle carries forward the sort of utility and style you’d expect from a brand that’s been making nothing but the best outdoor gear for more than a century, with both the specs and style to live up to the name. Filson boasts that this hard-wearing duffle bag is made from industrial-strength fabric that’s been lightly waxed, all the better to stand up to rain, wind and more.
For good measure, the ridiculously well-made Filson Large Duffle features tough yet handsome bridle leather by way of reinforced handles and extra durability at key stress points. Of course, the Filson Large Duffle also boasts crucial carrying capacity for long weekends and well beyond, by way of 75 liters of volume to haul everything from Filson flannel shirts to your new favorite hiking boots.
And because it’s a famed brand we’re talking about here, the Filson Large Duffle doesn’t skimp on style points, either — note the Otter Green color, all the better to nicely complement any travel outfit, especially one featuring, say, Filson indigo denim. The next time you hit the road this fall and winter, make sure it’s the Filson Large Duffle you’re packing up.
