  1. come on g your キモイ levels are high enough i KNOW you got pockets to hold the wifi in the club now
  2. awesome, thanks for the recs my guy. XXX def sounds interesting. will check the FB pages for anything cool (and try to keep an eye out for anything at Acadana). may try to catch a d&b show at basement bar since it looks like the first place i've seen with bpm > 140
  3. sup hk peeps & enthusiasts, gonna be passing through hong kong for 2 days in november... looking to see if anyone has recommendations on clubs/venues that are good rn. mostly trying to listen to various forms of non-EDM club music. seems like venues close down frequently out there, so i'm wondering what ppl living there think is currently good. only places mentioned to me so far have been Volar and midnight&co. this place FLY looks like it could be cool – anybody been? Same with PLAY Club (only because they have some "hip hop/garage" night or some shit). much appreciated
  4. iirc you have to press the release button on the clasp and, while still holding that down, pull the green tab/webbing to reset the cord.
  5. don't own the jacket but i can't imagine an insulator will fit comfortably if you size down...
  6. really wanna echo this. i used the 5ts for a few days as my daily commute bag. carried a laptop, charger, waterbottle, sometimes a jacket or book. found it pretty uncomfortable on shoulder after maybe 15-20 mins of standing. fortunately i had the mk2 cordura, so i had the top carrying handle, but i generally couldn't adjust. it wasn't nearly as comfortable worn as a backpack or even an ecat. if you can compartmentalize well with attachments and keep it under a reasonable weight, it's cool. also i used to switch to the "backpack" configuration every so-often, but the weight doesn't distribute evenly between the straps + it's a bit awkwardly oriented – just in case you were considering that option.
  7. i asked this same question back when the original p15-ch dropped. the extra 2 pockets are the "deep pocket" pockets. to recap, it's: - 2 back - 2 front - 1 external phone pocket on right - 1 internal phone pocket on left (same size as phone pocket) - 2 "deep pockets" (one in each front pocket) the deep pockets are a bit hard to explain. there's a small partition connected to the outseam of the pants that is big enough to hold small items (e.g., earbuds, car keys, etc.). it's not separated from the main front pocket space by a wall of fabric, but more like an additional small compartment added to the main front pocket. really hard to explain but maybe if someone has a pic handy they can upload it
  8. much appreciated. i'm about the same height/weight but usually size up for baggy ACR fit. i think i'd fit a M in this, though. last question: if you were to layer with a hoodie under instead of a tee, would you be able to zip up without expansion panel? or would you need to add it in? edit: ah and what was the sale % from haven? when did this happen? i thought i kept up with it but i guess not thanks for the help.
  9. thanks for the reply man. if you don't mind me asking, what's your height? edit: also i will keep my eyes peeled for another ACR head in SF
  10. anybody order the j-40L? how did you size? any fit pics? only ones i've seen were from boutique hermitage. also, what were fees for that lol
  11. will help here since i own each of these jackets and have worn them in heavy rain: J47A-GT: I usually keep my phone in one of the right side pockets. Have worn this in pretty intense rain a few times and never had a problem (unless i'm trying to change songs on the phone without ample protection – e.g., indoors). I'm not wearing the jacket right now but iirc the zipper is not orthogonal to rainfall (assuming rain falls completely vertically). The zippers, I believe, are somewhat slanted such that in order to creep into pocket you'd have to kinda fold the excess fabric at the top of the pockets awkwardly. Ultimately – I haven't had a problem with water getting into these pockets. Even better, though, would be to use the dual pocket on the left side, as it's really protected. GT-J5A: Lower pockets are not zippered – not recommended to store anything water-damageable. The expansion pocket, though, has a velcro pocket with a storm flap. I use that or the large waterproof-zipped pockets for my phone. J34-GT(PL): The chest pockets are slanted with flaps, making it pretty unlikely that water gets in there significantly enough to destroy something. I often keep my phone in one of the chest pockets during rainfall. In the event of torrential rain, though, I'll use the left side thigh pocket to store precious cargo (and put gloves in the chest pockets). I'd say the chest pockets are generally sufficient. The jacket being long and roomy also helps – I can store things in pants pockets if necessary. I wear the J34 & J47A often and haven't had a problem with water leakage for either, but I live in CA and maybe don't see the worst of rain storms ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I feel like each jacket has at least one sufficiently protected storage option, though, so it's never been a problem for me.
  12. shrinks near a full size down after wash + dry. there's more info in this thread around here
  13. anyone know the customs amount on the foil bags? specifically the 3A-1 to the US if anyone's got it. if not, all good.
  14. additional reference: i'm 5'10 160lb and wear a L in the j1a-s – fits semi baggy. usually layered with a hoodie, has ample room for interops. M still fits well (semi-baggy) with hoodie but no interops.
