Filson Bag and Backpack Reviews

These Filson bag and backpack reviews should give you an idea of which one is right for you.  These reviews are based off reading other people’s reviews of the Filson bags and backpacks, my personal experience with them, and my experience in general with other factors (material, size, weight, etc.).

The reason that I decided to add Filson to the brands I reviewed is I believe they have some of the most quality products on the market.  They might be a little more expensive than some of the other brands.  But in general, they are going to last a lot longer and come with a lifetime warranty.  They are a good overall investment.  Plus they look amazing as well!  Take a look at the list below and see if you can find the right one for you.
