    Curious what the F1-T is...

    100% with Tek.... inly new feature in the past serveral years was AuxZip? Which has been done before. I’m still mostly all in in the design, albeit would like to see more diversity: capes, blazers, etc, but would love more innovation.

    Regarding pricing... It’s hard to believe ACR is concerned about reselling.... if that were really the case there are ways, albeit extreme, to ensure they go to actual users. But production costs are going up in every category, not just techwear. Every production department operates on margins, prices are not arbitrary. Sure larger companies will round to an even number, but margins are why the J53ts is priced at 1,887.00 EUR and not 1900. The price of GoreTex has gone up a lot of the past several years, so has leasing factories, wages, travel, etc. Errolson isn’t backed by a financial conglomerate to bankroll all his expenses. He has to pay for all the aforementioned as well as any R&D. While I’m sure he is doing fine financially, his business model is not the typical blueprint so I’m sure he’s still figuring things out. Ya, it sucks that I can no longer look over each piece every drop and decide on a couple, but it is what it is. Good things come to an end, and I don’t really see a “correction” back to old days of 15 3rdArm items sitting on the webshop for 2 years. In the meantime, I’ll keep checking the usual outlets for the J28-e, DS-J5, E-j21, and on and on...

    6ts-cor get my vote in the bag fabric awards. As seen vs. my 8ts. Both used pretty extensively, but the COR still looks brand new

    I ain’t even mad at the bags... but the “mods” ?...?....? I mean looking back at the OG 3rd Arm selection compared to the these 1 zip pouches.

    ...like this..

    Let me start off by saying, admittedly, I panic ordered the WS having missed out on everything this winter. I get the whole cost vs. fabric vs. previous releases thing... I'm just not sure that's really an argument for any ACR gear, as discussing the usage of gravity pockets, ect. I wear a p10a/j29 combo with 17 pockets... Did I use/need all of them? Nope, I had my phone and my keys. Was it poring rain? Nope, it was 73 and sunny in January. Maybe I've just been waiting for a full-on-ACR WS jacket since I live in SoCal and can only wear a Pro-shell for 2 weeks out of the year, but I don't take ACR all that serious. Yes, I love the technical features of fabrication, and fit block construction, but damn Acronym just looks dope!
