    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.

    Coming from someone who owns more ACR than they should, it makes me appreciate the pieces I already own. No need for a jacket with a green shoulder, a volt colorway, or high contrast patterns at x3 the cost. Yes, it seems like people are paying more to be seen in something, which never was the point for me. I liked @Timdots point, of I don't want to be noticed wearing it, or notice other people wearing it. But, if one of these new things tickles me, then sure let me shell out for it, and buy less throughout the year. I don't think the point of ACR was to get a new shell every season. Sure, they're hiking prices to match the resellers market, you would too and if you say otherwise you're lying to yourself. Sure, it sucks for someone new to ACR, but if you're part of the old guard you could afford it then, you can afford it now, it'll just hurt a little more.
