  1. Appleseed

    Acronym.

    Would hope now that some of the dust has settled around the Windstopper re-brand and Shake-Dry becoming it's own thing that the nomenclature is standardized (re: both Gore and ACR). Any new -WS piece is Infinium-membrane'd (my understanding). Gore is still doing a lot of other things under the Infinium-umbrella, making it somewhat hard to know what you're getting based on copy only....

    Acronym.

    Oh I got that - just using the adjective incorrectly. Totally agree that 'military-inspired streetwear' is dumbed down enough to get the gist across to most ppl who would care-
  3. Appleseed

    Acronym.

    You're using that word incorrectly. Could pick up any one of the Blue Ant entries and come across suitable descriptions that don't include 'techwear' or 'cyberpunk'!

    Love my Voronoi, but they're getting a little long in the tooth. Sizing up on the Convex is an interesting idea; will keep that in mind!

    More pieces I'm excited about this season than....I don't know - in quite a while. Ordered one of the Demlo pieces and now waiting for the rest of the stuff to get stocked- @Inkinsurgent, no love for the Convex LT? Will be giving that a shot-

    If heat-activated seam tape has failed once, it's going to fail again (eventually). Sooner, by your method, than if repaired properly w/ (N) adhesive.

    Do it right, do it once.

    That's not delam., just failing seam adhesive. Use a Gore-Tex specific product (McNett makes many), tho I'd try to actually get the seam tape re-adhered instead of 'patching' over. If that's an older jacket, then I'd say there's not much cause for concern. Doesn't appear to be any soiling, etc.

    Not gonna pretend I know the whole RiRi catalog, but I suspect this is a design/association choice.

    Curious as to how much difference there is in treating the new nylon vs. the old cotton-based Epic fabrics? I've got a few ACR pieces that are Epic (but not 'encapsulated nylon') and they get the same cleaning cycle as any Stotz/Ventile/Supermarine piece.

    Well, patching from a burn is a bit different than repairing a jacket suffering from delam., no? If delamination has started on a panel, it's only gonna get worse over use+time. A little patch (even well done by Rainy Pass) isn't addressing the issue of the membranes separating.

    Has anyone actually had an ACR jacket repaired for GTX delam.? Only way to do this is to have the entire fabric panel replaced and a new one sewn in, and given the complexity of most ACR patterns/detailing...

    Thankfully, there are other ways to use Dyneema - the woven stuff that Outlier has played w/ comes to mind. It's categorically different from a full membrane application, but I would agree that a non-breathable fabric is less-than-ideal in a typical jacket. Seems like something of a step backward, IMO.
