GEAR REPORT: FILSON’S SMALL FIELD DUFFLE

Earlier this week I spent a two nights in Napa Valley at Calistoga Ranch, an Auberge Resort. The hour-long flight from LAX to SFO was easy, and the two-hour drive from the airport to Calistoga Ranch was beautiful.

Some 40,000 people attend the annual celebration of independent film (that’s over four times the population of Park City), and inevitably, too big a percentage of first time festival goers arrive ill-equipped to take on Utah winters (and slippery, slushy sidewalks).
