Rugged gear that looks refined—a simple enough thing to ask for, but a tough pair of ideals to deliver on. Filson
has the balance down, (Richard Chai in the driver’s seat
does not hurt). This small duffle is adorable in a way, but you could just as easily see a commando of sorts hoisting it—packed with firearms—through a third-world villa. Just look at the teeth on that zipper!
One of us has a Filson tote similar to this olive green god that gets used primarily as a diaper bag. Putting it over the shoulder always feels the like starting point of grandest adventure. Tell you what: It is the manliest diaper bag at ballet class and still gets lots of cooing from the mothers. Blackbird has it.
