This is some of the dumbest shit I've seen in the 649 pages of this thread. No fucking kidding there are people like you who would buy ACR if it were cheaper. There is no need to prove worth to you or anyone, this is simple economics. There is a price for these goods and people choose to buy them or not. You are a person who is choosing not to buy them and are making that declaration on a fan page comprised of people who have chosen to buy. ACR is a luxury brand, always has been, that is the reality of the situation. It doesn't matter how many pockets this shit has or how good the tailoring is, it is still just a jacket, or pant or whatever. Go buy a used gore tex jacket off of ebay and save your money, no big deal, stay warm, stay dry and shut the fuck up.
