Editor’s Note: Sorry to those who dillydallied, because this Filson briefcase is now sold out at Huckberry.
Regular Strategist readers should be no strangers to Filson, the maker of timeless (when it comes to both style and durability) duffel bags, weekend bags, and work bags approved by frequent fliers and cool people like our very own Chris Black. Our columnist has called his Filson briefcase a classic that “still looks amazing after years of travel” (he bought it more than a decade ago). Black carries Filson’s “Original” briefcase, but this Dryden ballistic briefcase looks a lot like his — the main difference being that Black’s is made from cotton twill, and the Dryden is made from “abrasion-resistant” nylon (making it roughly a pound lighter than the Original). Other things to like about the Dryden: It’s water-repellent, features Filson’s signature leather trim, has two large exterior pockets, and has a strap on the back that makes it easy to slide onto the handle of your rolling luggage. One more thing to like: Today, it’s on sale for 30 percent off.
