    Spec-sheet was a typo; the original online copy stated the correct 6 pockets (1 flak, 1 mezz, 2 gravity, 2 normal).

    Video/YouTube is a great format for a lot of things, but for sharing opinions on something like this I don't understand. That could've been a couple hundred-word post that could be read/digested in 2 minutes, but instead it's drawn out to almost 11 minutes for no added benefit. What a waste of time, literally!

    Outlier is a poor comparison. Outlier has always been really communicative with its user base--Acronym is basically the opposite. Plus, Outlier used to pride itself on its production being in the USA and it was one of its selling points, so diseminating the fact that they're changing production is almost required. Acronym, AFAIK, has never touted its country of origin.

    What? Fit is absolutely a legitimate reason to not purchase/return something. People return $20 pants because they don't fit well; you don't think that would apply with garments in the several-hundreds; especially considering this crowd is much more keen to these things than the general public?

  16. Thanks, I'll take a look! A little looser fit is totally fine with me, but Carhartt is a bit too loose and look like bell bottoms on me. I had a pair of straight leg Sugarcanes back in the day and those were my favorite-fitting pair. So if you've any suggestions on looser pants I'm all ears! As for sewing, that's true, though I thought heavyweight denim required heavier-duty machines (which I don't have) to get through the fabric? Plus, I don't trust my beginner-level knowledge on a pair of pants that may be a couple hundred of dollars X_X
  17. Can anyone recommend a denim brand that has a "phone pocket"? Something like this (doesn't necessarily have to be the same location): In doing a search all I found was people talking about phone fades in their pockets :/ Thanks in advance!

    For P23 (and some other wide pants) you should size based on length/inseam more than anything else. The waist will be laughably large on all sizes, and therefore almost completely irrelevant (unless you're at the extremes of really large or small waist).

    What kind of metal detectors are we talking, though? If it's at airports in the US at least, in all my experiences they make you take off belts at security anyway, regardless of if it's metal or otherwise--they just want all belts off. So if you're thinking to avoid having to take it off for US airports (and maybe abroad too?), I don't think it'd matter.

    Last season we found that Nike ACG and NikeLab ACG are two very different things. So since that announcement didn't mention "Lab" it may not be what we're looking for.

    J73-WS full body pic: Pocket empty: Pocket with a wallet (in its box) I found here lol: Random stuff I found at this shop that I'm putting into the mesh pocket to illustrate how well it hides weight/contents: Can you guess which of the two following pics is of the mesh pocket full of those items? This one (#1): or this one (#2): Detached pocket detail (like an upside-down MZ pocket). Both sides are like this, not just the mesh side: My hand under the pocket all the way to the top:

    I just picked one up and I love it. The perfect SS jacket for comfort against light breezes. It's WS so it's negligible weight to carry around all day, and stuffs down really small into a bag if that's your jam. Contrary to @lopiteaux, I think the pockets are the hallmark of this piece. It's a bit hard to describe, but they are semi-detached from the jacket body (not just detached-entry, but detached pocket). If you have a 3A-1 or anything else with a MZ pocket, imagine that the chest pockets have upside down MZ pockets, so if you stuck your hand from the bottom under the pocket you'd find dead open space between the pocket and the jacket body. What this accomplishes is that when you do put something in the pockets it weighs the pocket down independently from the jacket. Now that doesn't mean it's weightless and unnoticeable--it's still WS so any weight you add to it will be felt--but it significantly reduces the sag on the garment itself compared to if the pockets were "normal" pockets that are directly sewn onto the garment. I tested this with different items and felt like this helped the jacket retain the profile when you have asymmetric loads--I didn't feel like it distorted the profile at all. I'll try to take some crappy phone pics later today.

    The problem with an FAQ is not that it doesn't exist (as @CARLOOA and others have made before); it's that people don't know what they don't know. If you don't know about EscapeZip, how do you search for it? You can't search it by name, so you try and describe it..."zipper without teeth"? Same with "mezzanine pockets"--that's not a word in the common vernacular, so people won't know to search it. It's not ideal but I think the solution is to keep answering these questions when they arise instead of saying, "use the search function." The advantage that forums have over Reddit (which, let's face it, killed forums) is that a discussion is on-going (reddit threads last for a day or two, max?). The more people come here to discuss the longer it survives That includes the questions asked millions of times before.

    #2 buy outright and when items arrive refund the PP transaction to get your fees back, so in the end you just "lose" shipping. It's how I've always done trades in the past.
