The smell and feel of a new leather bag or wallet is one of life’s top enjoyments. If you’re looking for an elite holiday gift this year, you can never go wrong with leather goods.
Filson Leather Bags and Leather Goods
We like Filson for all our leather goods. They employ boot-grade leather in all their products, and the material is also vegetable-tanned to perfection here in the U.S.—in Pennsylvania by Wickett & Craig to be exact.
We’re highlighting some of our favorite leather gift ideas from Filson here below. It’s worth noting that while some of these items might be a little on the pricier side, the overall return on investment will be quite satisfactory in the long run—a Filson leather backpack or dufflebag will last for years, if not decades.
Discover Filson’s best leather wallets, catch alls, duffle bags, backpacks, and more. Make sure to let us know your personal favorites!
Weatherproof Leather Journeyman Backpack
Crafted out of 3.5 oz waterproof leather, the Journeyman Backpack features a tin cloth liner and a computer pocket that fits up to 15″ wide. The pack measures 17-1/2″H x 12-3/8″W x 5″D.
Large Workshop Weatherproof Leather Computer Case
Filson uses 5-6 oz waterproof leather for extra strength to this beautiful laptop sleeve. It fits up to 15″ laptops and will conform to your computer over time—expect the sleeve to fit snug at the beginning.
Medium Workshop Leather Field Bag
This field bag has got some major Indiana Jones vibes. Filson uses 3.5 oz waterproof leather for this retro-inspired shoulder bag. The straps and handles are made with bridle leather, and the bag itself measures 14”W X 13”H X 5”D.
Medium Weatherproof Leather Duffle Bag
It doesn’t get much better than this. Filson’s leather duffle bag uses 3.5 oz waterproof leather and bridle leather trim, as well as rugged twill and wool for the liner. Branded, solid brass hardware, a D-ring for the handles, and a capacity up to 42L makes this duffle bag ideal for traveling. This duffle bag will last so long you’ll be able to pass it down in your family one day.
Bridle Leather Front Pocket Cash & Cash Case
Handcrafted in Seattle out of 5 oz bridle leather, this front pocket wallet is perfect for those who like to travel light. It’s got three compartments for cards and space for pocket cash. Our favorite feature is the rounded edge design for keeping in the front pocket of your pants or shirt.
Workshop Rectangle Catch All
We love a good catch all. Filson’s is made with 9 oz harness leather and comes with brass shackles that are plated to complement each leather color offered. In the middle is an embossed Filson workshop logo. Set this by your nightstand or front door and throw your keys and gadgets in it for easy keeping.
Slim Workshop Leather Wallet
Handcrafted in Filson’s Seattle flagship store, this is an OG card holder made out of thick Chromexcel leather from Chicago’s Horween Leather Company. It’s heavily oiled and waxed during tanning to have a softer feel, and it features two card slots and one main compartment. This puppy will wear in wonderfully over time.
