    Acronym.

    Exactly, I think there could be legitimate concerns re: China's track record with the garment industry, but considering what Errolson tweets about, he's probably done his homework on the factory he's partnered with. Unless we learn to the contrary, give him the benefit of the doubt, and enjoy the fact that prices will go down a bit between fw18 and ss19/fw19.

    You're correct and I mixed up patrol and monitor. Update: They also changed the logo font for ss19

    Why wouldn't you just wait until ss19 comes out, there are normally unlined patrols then for much cheaper than the down

    Would only the spray work, not wash in dwr?

    I've only ever owned almost every voronoi AR iteration but i've always gone size 32, which might not be that helpful of info since theyre not the same pant (pattern wise). I do know if you call up veilance customer service (there is only one true veilance customer service rep iirc, i'm blanking on their name) they can pull up patterns for you and give you any measurement differences.

    They release pretty much the same kinds of shit every winter, shells, cargo pants, etc, but if youre interested in what kind of things to expect design wise, I dont think anyone outside of the acr team really knows/havent seen any leaks. I know nike can be a pain in the ass for a lot of the retailers they work with since they will often get notice of new product around the same time nike makes the official announcement, which can only be a week or two away in some instances, there isnt always a roadmap like with other brands.

    I guess I generally don't layer that much except on especially cold days i might wear a thicker flannel and just wear a coat on top of that. I'm replacing a mainline fission ar i've beat up since 2009 (and has served me well), and after digging around im pretty confident that the warmth will be much more comparable for the field IS. Should go without saying, but go TTS/stick with your regular veilance top size on the field is?

    Whats the temperature range of the monitor down and the field is? I'm based in DC and looking for a new winter jacket, and I'm trying to figure out which would be the better option/if the monitor would be total overkill. I do a fair amount of walking to and from public transit and that wouldn't change in the winter, but if the monitor is really only usable in sub 20ºF temps it might not be the move.

    Little birdie told me that a component overshirt is coming. Interested to see what will be different about it.

    Errolson said one more season (so I guess earlier reports of fw17 being its last season were just a year too soon), but overall it is a bummer. The only consolation i would take from it is if nike releases the acg cargos in their latest revised form in different colors, im less into the direction the shells took

    Haven just dropped some new SISP (assuming a first delivery of fw18), really feeling the hidden pocket cargos and shirt jacket(?)

    Launch was 5/18 last year and I don't think info was available that far ahead of week of release, so if there is anything coming we'll find out next week or the week after. Even if errolson isnt heading up the collection, JFS is still at nike and I doubt they'd end the line after having pretty good success the past few years.

    I had one pair of regular voronois and i found them much more restrictive in the seat than voronoi AR/liminal/apparat and I sent them back. At the time I spoke with a veilance rep who gave very detailed measurements as to the differences between the AR and non-AR and it didn't sound that different (maybe .5 inch of rise and some other slight changes) but it made all the difference in fit. As a city dweller who walks around a lot, I have had no problems with the movement/fit of veilance pants, but I think thats because I use them in the environments theyre designed for and have never really considered using them outside of that.
