    at some point outlier realised there are a handful of reddit weirdos that will buy literally anything they can think up and now their business model revolves around that.

    out of three epic glacier jackets i used to own i have one left and it's quite pilled but it hasn't faded in any noticeable way. nylon tends to be really colorfast.

    the two things that pill epic glacier something fierce are velcro and heavier denier nylons found in gear (straps, pack surfaces). on pants used in a city context it's probably not as pronounced of a problem.

    nah, i'm mistaken. the thread is aramid but the fabric itself is a modacryl/cotton blend.

    no the later non-melange fire resistant material. the melange model has been a long term grail piece for me.

    the p10 in aramid CH is hands down the most comfortable pant i've ever worn.

    i'm less annoyed by the people immediately flipping what they ordered than by the people listing beat up six year old items for twice what they retailed.

    Handfeel is absolutely epic glacier's strong suit. I sometimes wear my pcu jacket around the house instead of a hoodie because it's so nice next to skin. Purely by comfort it absolutely beats all competitors in the same weight/function range such as dryskin, dynamic, durastretch and terratex. Of course the downside to this is pilling but if you stay away from rocks, velcro and high-denier nylon/cordura you'll be alright.

    nextec epic nylon. it has a very comfortable and soft hand, but it pills like fucking crazy and has rather poor water resistance over the lifetime of the garment. edit for a bit of backstory: this is the textile used in USSOCOM's PCU level 5 uniform, a design referenced by acr in a few other items. One of the founding fathers of the PCU programme, Mark Twight of gym jones fame, picked it because he emphasises dry time and vapor transmission over pure water resistance. The color "alpha green" is a direct reference to the PCU system, although the color in the acr pictures does not seem to be the same as the one used in the L5 uniform.
