    Yeah, it happened to mine and at least one other person on here iirc. I posted up a picture awhile back sometime last year if you search for it. Anyways contact arc customer service, your friend will have to send it in to them. They ended up replacing mine with a brand new one.

    recently hit up some new cafe's and lunch spots in shimokitazawa. Light up coffee was great, pretty new, I think it opened just a few weeks ago, manager is like japan aeropress 2016 champion or something. anyways, worth going out of the way for. Hit up Glaubelle coffee and Hi monsieur in the area as well. Light up is one of my new favorites though. Try their coffee and tonic on a hot day, super refreshing. back in omotesando, where omotesando koffee used to be, the owner opened up the new koffee mameya. specializes more in beans and roasts now. really nice little spot and flows a lot better. the pour over i had of one of their light roasts, cant remember which one, was insanely delicious. also tried out "deli fu cious" in nakameguro and their fish burger. amazing stuff.

    Another new interview with Taka from veilance over at Minimalissimo, starts off covering the same stuff in prior interviews. Gets a little more interesting toward the end when asked about growth of the brand and working with outside partners as well as maintaining the same level of quality. https://minimalissimo.com/arcteryx-veilance/

    Yeah I love the side handle and vertical oriented organization pouches inside the bag. Works great when navigating through airports and on flights. That being said, has anybody had any problems or faster-than-normal wear on the shoulder straps of their nomin, namely the top part of the shoulder strap where it attaches to the bag itself?

    I think branespload was talking about the upcoming FW 17 when the changes were happening to the nomin pack.

    Is the new haedn fabric similar to the limited release monitor at the veilance pop up shop in ny? Still wanting an indisce but debating if I should wait for new haedn now.. Also, quite a few more stuff from the new season released today at Haven

    That's great zekay. Hoek and Graphpaper looks promising, thanks for the recs Last time I was in Daikanyama I remember finding a homegoods store when wandering around near the APC store, can't remember the name, maybe it's the same one you're thinking of... EDIT: Was it this place? Tenoha http://tenoha.jp/

    Since we are on the topic of the Nomin, anybody here own or have owned both the nomin and outlier's quadzip backpack and care to chime in on the preferences of either bag? Main question is how comparable in size are the the main compartment areas? I currently own the quadzip (and the rolltop version before that) and am looking to possibly sell it and pick up a nomin hopefully on an upcoming sale. the cuben fiber is so damn noisy to me on the qz. I own a seque tote and think i prefer the ac2 material arc uses. Also the lack of any real organization is a bummer. i've tried outliers ultrahigh flatpacks but the medium and larger sizes are a pain to access when the pack is loaded.

    From the looks of it the $660 priced nomin pack is the FW16 one since it doesn't have the ripstop finish. I think the $725 one is from the upcoming SS17 season. From the ssense pictures I can't make out any real difference between the bags though... so just a guess.

    If the rep never told me that they "updated" the elastic, I would have never known. The elastic to me looks exactly the same to my eyes. I haven't worn my SS16 version but maybe 2 times, so I can't comment on how well the elastic collar will hold up this time. If it bacons out on me again I'll probably just replace it with another jacket next time...

    Definitely contact customer support. Arc service team replaced my SS15 Nemis with the SS16 version for free after sending it in to them. I couldn't find the original email from veilance about it, but IIRC, the rep said they updated the elastic on the collar of the nemis so that the rippling effect shouldn't happen again on the new one. Suppose this applies to any other jackets that use the elastic cuff/collar after the '15 season.
