    Thank you guys for your responses. It's pretty bad: along the whole length of the shoulders, at both arm creases and both wrists. Rainy pass flat out said no. I'll keep trying ACR. In doing research on this I found another forum with a guy who said he spoke to someone who worked for Gore-tex. The guy said he would deny it if ever confronted, but says there are certain people who's oils and sweat just don't mix well with Gore-Tex, and pieces are much quicker to delam. Thinking back, I've had Gore-Tex jackets for the past 20+ years and they all delam. Guessing it's time to move onto a new fabric.

    Delamintaion Update Nothing back from ACR proper. The boss tweeted back and said the fix would be a tedious job of cutting out the delamination and applying seem tape. I'm thinking about grabbing some Gear Aid Gore-tex patches, cutting out the delamination and applying them to the inside of the jacket, and then seam taping off the edges of the patches. I know these patches are meant to go on the outside of a shell, but it seems easier to apply 4x6" patches instead of small strips of seem tape. Thoughts?

    They are 2 different things and the mother site has both...

    Deleted. The neg rep spoke. Thank you for it, it was a welcome change.

    Agreed this is one of my favorite jackets. How do you wash yours?

    For the delamination of my J47a anyone have and fixes? Thinking about waxing it or using a bunch of iron on gore-Tex patches on the inside. I wrote ACR repairs but I don’t really think they’re going to repair it. Seems like it would be pretty major and probably need to be replaced. I talked to a Gore-Tex repair place in Seattle WA and they said there was nothing they could do. They said where the delamination happened isn’t waterproof anymore so it’s basically just a windbreaker. Going to hold out doing any drastic DIY repairs until I hear back from ACR, but I’m open to ideas. Good luck to everyone tomorrow.

    Just took my 47a out of the closet for the first time since the spring and I noticed the grid lining is becoming detached from membrane. Is there anything I can do about this? I wear this thing to death every winter. See pictures below.

    That jacket already dropped. Crazy to see WS more expensive than GT pro but I guess it's the intricacy of the design of the j73 / exposed seem allowances of the j69. Spotted P22-C in the j59

    What the deal with a delaminated fabric, is it sill effective at keeping one dry or safe from the wind? or does it render the technical properties of the fabric moot?

    Unsure about the reverse seam allowances on the J66, especially on the volt. It'll Interesting to see how this thing ages and frays, hopefully not too sloppy.
