    I know this is US and not UK, but when I asked UPS it said it would take them about a year to refund duties...

    I spray it with grangers (as if it were a shell) and it reactivates the fuck out of the water resistance. My Acronym DS pieces do pill slightly over time but I think that's gonna happen either way.

    Sooo I've got a very old Veilance jacket from when I was young and foolish and didn't know you have to wash Goretex often, and predictably it's terribly delaminated, especially on the upper back. Wondering, besides being ugly, and I guess making it easier to accidentally rip the membrane, what are the downsides of delamination? I had assumed that waterproofing goes, but I've been in downpours and even worn it into the shower. It wets out, but I'm still totally dry after? Weird, right?

    Did J1A-GTs get listed and sell out immediately today, or is it old stock?

    I don't want to tell you what you don't know, but your measurements sound exactly right for size S. Is it possible you're unfamiliar with how it's supposed to fit? can you post some pics?

    Huh, I assumed it was the same windstopper as on the J58-WS. I didn't even notice it was Infinium until this post. I guess that's another notch in the "goretex marketing is too confusing" column

    Yeah... I've got a J83-WS, and while the GTX Pro is obvious, I wouldn't have known it had anything to do with infinium until this discussion :?

    Where is the infinium in the J83-WS?

    acrnm will refund you the retail price but getting back the tax money from the broker is going to be a pain in the ass and take a long time, if it's anything like the US edit: oh you mean if you refuse the package. I don't know! Email them, I'd be curious to hear

    J56 is cool. I'm surprised he used the zip grav pocket; the elastic mechanism is far superior imo.

    Union LA still has an S24 in S if you're into the dryskin tees. They also have a full size run of the J1A-GTPL in black and the SP28-DS in alpha green

    Looks like adding item to cart doesn't save your spot anymore. I tried to buy P30A from the mothersite, but by the time the checkout page loaded, it was gone. I'm about to email them to volunteer to help step up their web hosting game, they got 503s like crazy coming off that site

    you are right, many shitty human beings like me are already running robots against it to catch the drop, it's currently at a crawl

    Yeah idk not feeling it. Water resistant? So if you get caught out in the rain without a jacket, 60% of your upper body stays dry-ish? A windproof… tee shirt? Why not make windproof socks while you’re at it? DS is one of my favorite fabrics, for slim pants with freedom of movement (like P10s) and for more obscure uses like weightlifting (durable, low friction, stretchy). But I just don’t see it in a tee. Hard to imagine anything supplanting merino, as far as function goes. YMMV I guess. More for you

    I get that it stretches, but who cares about that on a loose fitting tshirt? I'm tryna understand why you would do up a tee in dryskin at all, except to flex a tech fabric. (which is fine!)

    What's the appeal of the DS tees or tank? Not particularly breathable, drape is whatever, stretch is moot, presumably smells bad when you sweat? Pants shorts and bomber looking dope, not sure about the hoodless j1a tho, carrying a hat around clipped like that seems like a pita

    I see what you mean. I can definitely imagine the glossy xpac delaminating in the sense that the entire laminated face may separate from the inner material, as one piece, starting around the edges. However, the old foil lacks that lamination layer completely; individual shreds of the foil will tear off inevitably, even with light wear. I guess time will tell, but it's hard to imagine anything less robust than the old silver foil. EDIT I took a picture: That's not "delamination" in the gtx pro sense where the layers separate, it's just the outer layer being incredibly fragile. The current foil lineup seems like it would fail more like gtx pro

    No, I don't think this is right. I've owned a silver foil, a black foil, and a green regular (with the current "foil" reverse face) and they are all obviously of different durabilities. The silver foil is incredibly fragile, but even the black is much less rigid than the back-face of the green xpac. The current "foil" seems to be laminated in some way that makes it much tougher (and more rigid). As for waning magic, man, whatever. I'm too lazy, but I wonder what year the first post about "the magic is gone" was made in? Before 2016, I bet... hasn't it always been like this? Maybe it's you that have changed? It's been five years, after all -- it's natural for your tastes to shift over such a long period of time. I've said this before but I think "making money" is the wrong take. Prices go up, sure, but the volume is too low for it to be a cash cow. If he wanted to make money, he would create a diffusion line and do more shoes. Acronym is his art/prestige project.

    On the bright side, looks like the foil is just reversed xpac, which should be way more durable than the previous foil.

    shitty post. in depth reviews, especially of flaws, are one of the best parts of this thread. why do you think i'm here? to read you and orientalq bitching at each other for pages and pages? why don't you brevity your posts out of existence?
  23. eidolarr

    I've got the J83-WS as well and it's absolutely dope, but the zipper is... temperamental. I love the look, but the bottom zip doesn't stay flush, and if it's not flush you can't unhook it. It does also bite the material sometimes which also makes it hard to undo.

    A few J1s are trickling back in as people empty carts, keep your eyes peeled if you missed it edit: they just marked j1b-gt as "coming soon" again. Wild day for ACRNM IT department
