    Something I forgot to acknowledge re: J58 is that all of the 1.2 “changes” that Errolson mentioned on IG already existed on version 1.1... The only main difference between .1 and .2 is the primaloft gold active.

    Any of the jackets I've bought in the last few years that fit "profile", I've gone a size up and I've been very happy with the results. The 58 works really well because the cinch at the waist still creates a slimmer silhouette.

    Received my J58 V1.2 today. Paid $230 for customs at 4.2% + 15% tariff b/c Made in China. Quality seems the same if not better, especially around the piping of the elastic. The way the collar sits is also different. It's more straight across while the 1.0 was more rounded. Warmth and feel of the jacket feel nearly identical to 1.0. A quick walk around the block in around 25° F NYC weather and I was quite warm with a long sleeve underneath. I weighed old v. new and the Primaloft version is about 20g heavier overall (though, the new one is a large v. the old one is a medium). The extra padding in the pockets are wonderful (v. cozy) and the bilateral pockets are a huge plus. Elastic feels about the same to me in terms of tightness. Aesthetically, the biggest difference I noticed was the height of the collar (1.2 on the left). The snaps on the wrists have also been reversed so there are two sockets and one stud, instead of vice versa. I still feel like this jacket is better worn on its own. Underneath a shell, it always felt quite tight with anything more than a tee.

    Just bought a J58 to replace my V1 (too small). I'm a little skeptical that primaloft gold active will be as warm as climashield, but happy the price didn't increase from the last release. Anyone have any experience with primaloft gold active? If the weight is a factor, hopefully warmth will be on par as V1.2 is actually 30 grams heavier (534 v. 504).

    Tried on the new SD fabric on the J44 today and I was really impressed. Fabric is much heavier than standard stotz and has a great drape. The J44 isn't my favorite silhouette, but I'm really excited to see what they do with it in future seasons.

    I've owned a J47-GT and J1A 2.2. Sizing is tough to compare IMO because the patterns are so different but the J1A is much roomier than the J47. A J58 underneath the 47 was always very tight with anything more than a tee base layer. I have plenty of room and movement with the 58 and J1a together.

    Not surprised the measurements are more like J69. The fit in product shots looks almost identical. Are you able to flip the collar over like with the 69 or is the collar too padded from the hood?

    The cut looks nearly identical to the J69 so from experience, the double zipper isn't an issue because it's cut so short. You also have the snap closure / plus escape zip if your'e sitting down. New storm hood mechanism looks incredible. Interesting that none of the product shots show the collar down when the hood is stowed. Where did you see that there were issues at the factory?

    You're in luck. J61 in Paclite coming FW1920.

    I spoke to UPS and gave the code 6201.99.8030 and my duties were reduced to $65. If you already paid duties though, it's extremely difficult to get them reduced. Few initial thoughts: Collar – I've liked the folded collar since they originally showed 2.2 with the 3A-1s, and it really is a great refinement. With the last J1A, I always ended up folding the collar over anyways. I don't like the collar up as much, as the collar seems really skinny and high, so its less proportional than previous J1A's, especially without the hood. Gravity Pockets –The redesigned gravity pockets are an improvement too. Much less in the way, and easier to open and close the zips. Zippers – I wonder why they decide to keep the shiny zippers vs. the matte zippers on other jackets (like J47). Aesthetically, I like both but the matte zippers feel way smoother to me. Fit – The sizes on the site were identical to the previous version but it seems a bit boxier. With a J58 underneath, I have much more radial movement than I recall with the last version. Although, it has been a couple years since I last owned it. Hood – Perfect. The shape is great, and it no longer has those flaps that the last version did. The flaps always bothered the hell out of me so I'm happy they got rid of them. I'm also able to get the hood over my head with the storm collar all the way zipped, which I've not always been able to do with other ACRNM jackets.

    Received mine today. I did find a QC sticker in each of the front pockets...

    Here's what I noticed: New hood New collar (This collar is also fundamentally different than even the J69, which doesn't include a collar stand) Second snap higher on the jacket (as they've done on many recent jackets like J47 / J69 / J66, etc.) Hidden snap at bottom of zip Black snaps (old ones were silver) Added back hitch tab (from OG version) Also first time I can recall them actually listing the models heights which is probably very useful for people new to the brand
