Looks like something's finally going into the old Bryan's at Government and Johnson. Windows covered in paper, so no idea what it is...

They make high quality outdoor apparel as well. Swedish based company, so quite expensive.

I mean, the backpacks alone are of extremely high quality. Not your run of the mill canvass. Many people in Sweden have packs from that company that are 30+ years old and still in good shape.

 

When you compare that to what other high quality backpacks go for...it's not far off.

If you want high quality outdoor gear or anything else you can order from Filson either on Water St. in Vancouver or from the factory in Seattle. I bought some luggage from them, very well made.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
