i've been really impressed by filson's quality in the past, and i think when i find myself with some disposable income this fall, that will be my next purchase. everything i own from them has been tough, comfortable, and an added perk is most of it is USA made.

i've got their fishing chest pack that i bought in the spring, used it for summer runs/fall salmon so far, and it works well -- the only downside which can get annoying(for a bait fisherman like me) is that it's tough to get at your bait box, as everything's right out in front of you. either have to move it out of the way, or wear your bait box on your side.
