    I don't blame them why let a reseller profit when they can just pocket more.

    They were suppose to release yesterday. They increased the prices on everything compared to the original prices that they were going to sell it at.

    Nah bro I'm just getting warmed up, its only the 5th inning.

    I was talking about the main line not Veilance. The same idea applies to Veilance as well, people are buying it for the brand and the way it looks not because of its durability. You could pay 3x less and just get a Beta and it would last just as long as a Veilance shell. The same is true when my wife tries to tell me Channel and LV has "better" leather than Longchamp or Coach. Sure, the quality is slightly better but she is buying Channel and LV because of the brand and the way it looks, not because of the durability and how many pockets it has.

    Yes, I climb mountains.

    Thats all I needed to see. I've owned over 10 ACR jackets and 7 bags and I can tell you that I didn't get many, many years from it. The best example would be the foil bags that everyone has rips and tears on. For all the other stuff I guess we can agree to disagree.

    I thought the comment was funny which is why I thought it was a joke. Patagonia doesn't cost 200-300 a piece. Even if you had to constantly buy Levis you would need to buy more than 20 pairs to cover one pair of ACR pants. Yes, if you wear ACR every now and then it would last many, many years but so would 20 pairs of levis. Which is why your argument of it being more economical made no sense to me. They do care about durability but it is heavily outweighed by the other reasons they are buying the item. Like I said, you are mostly buying it because it looks good and the brand. If you people buying ACR really cared about durability/usability that much they would be purchasing arc'teryx that has a lifetime warranty.

    I'm sorry but this statement is a joke. It's definitely not more economical buying Acronym over some cheaper 'throwaway' garments. There is no way the cost per use is cheaper on a Acronym items over say Patagonia or similar brands. Also, I have 3 pairs of P10's and they start to fade and wear down after less than a years use. I think people need to stop convincing themselves that they are buying ACR for its usability/durability or any other bullshit reason. We are buying it because of the brand and the way it looks. Well, maybe you are buying it for the phone escape shit on the wrist because we all know how useful and practical that is.

    Does it really matter if its shitty quality? If someone has the means to drop 2k on a jacket then they will surely have enough to drop another 2k when it breaks. Its not like someone who buys Acronym is calculating the cost per use.

    Anyone else getting a COD from UPS? Normally they just send me the letter like fedex but now its COD.
  11. Acronym.

    They want to avoid previews at all costs because they want those impulse buys
  12. Acronym.

    New hard shell jackets will be 2k+ euro.
  13. Acronym.

    Yes, its trash QC. I have a pair and there is glue everywhere. The QC for the original presto release was bad as well.

    Thanks for the info! I have been looking for these boots.

    I have been saying this for ages. The bags are really uncomfortable under heavy load, especially 3A-7TS backpack. I said it was a garbage backpack and I got bashed into oblivion.
