Our Rugged Twill Log Carrier embodies the philosophy that’s guided Filson for 125 years: Manufacture uncompromising products using the best available materials and construction. Products that withstand the rigors of daily use for years on end, that are handed down rather than tossed out. Introduced more than two decades ago, this traditional tote bag remains a testament to the idea that if a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
Rather than waxed canvas, Rugged Twill was chosen for its exceptional abrasion resistance and tear strength. This industrial-strength fabric comes from Britain’s oldest, most storied mills, and is heavily waxed for water resistance and added durability. The Bridle Leather used the handles is strong and durable enough for horse tack. It’s been slowly vegetable-tanned over several weeks in natural plant-based solutions that transform top-grade cowhides into sturdy, supple, and lustrous leather that provides decades of service.
Construction details were carefully considered, even those that are not obvious, such as the Bridle Leather anchor points for the handles that are rivet for greater strength. Our Log Carrier has been tested to carry more than 1,400 pounds with no signs of stress.
