  1. WTS: P24-S Black, Large, BNWT - $775 + PayPal fees, shipped to US.
  2. Let us know if you can. That would be great. X-Pac rules!
  3. Yes the Skidcat is a backpack, so made a good alternative to the 3A-7TS (also a backpack) and a more comfortable option than a fully loaded 6TS. I'd say the 8TS is the same size as a Bagjack Little Jack, yeah, or maybe even the Pogo. Maybe email them to check. Firmament lists the 8TS dimensions as this: height: 29cm/ width: 33cm (compressed) height: 37cm/ width: 33cm (expanded) in centimeters; approx. values EDIT: is the Little Jack the only one with the top handle? Looks like it. Definitely get one with the top handle. I missed that hugely on the 6TS. EDIT 2: I see how my original post was confusing. I meant look at Bagjack for an 8TS alternative, not the Skidcat. But you obviously figured that out so I don't even know why I'm typing this. God I'm annoying.
  4. This is unhelpful, but I have one and I highly recommend it. I bought it in 2011 and still use it all the time. Because it's XPAC it does not develop a stupid patina that, I think, looks horrible. It pretty much looks new still. Good on foot, good on a bike, ideal size. I had a 3A-6TS for short trips, but it was too big fully loaded to be comfortable on one shoulder. I changed that for a Bagjack Skidcat XL which is great. I hardly ever see 3A-8TS's come up for sale. I originally wanted the 3A-7TS to replace the 6TS, but no-one was selling at the time. However, the Skidcat is essentially the same thing, so I recommend looking at them for an 8TS substitute.
  5. [sOLD] IC: Olive P9-S, size L. FW1213. Good condition, but slightly shrunk. I bought these new ($800) and wore them a bit up until their first wash, where I stupidly took them to a dry cleaner. They came back shrunk by about one inch and they had ironed creases down the front. This made me sad. It was a bad day. I got them to de-iron the creases (you can still faintly see them in the lower leg close-up picture, but not in use), but shrinkage is permanent obviously. As an unshrunk P9-S in large is already almost too short for my legs, these don't get worn at all any more. I've kept them several years since the attack of the dry cleaner, but I just wear my black ones or, better still, my P14-CH's which fit much better. Anyway, if you are so proportioned that these would make sense, then let me know. I always estimate usage by label wear, so I've included close-ups of the labels.
  6. I've had a 3A-8TS for about four year and it has been great for biking and general use. I lean way forward on the bike and it pretty much just sits on my back where I put it. If I was doing an extra-long ride I would use the connector strap to secure it in place, but I've never actually felt the need to do so before. It's good to have the option though. As for heat, it's no better or worse than any other bag. I can't imagine there being a good solution to that. If something is pressed against your skin when you're hot then you're going to sweat.
  7. IC: I have two pairs of Muroexe Metal in Chrome. Size: EU 45 · UK 11 · USA 11.5 Brand new, in boxes.
  8. Same here: hand wash in the bath tub. I took my first pair of P9-S's to the dry cleaner and got them back shrunk and with a crease ironed down the middle of each leg.

  11. Most of the chat is in the Urban Techwear thread, as it's Nike stuff rather than Acronym.
  12. What I meant is these products aren't dual-branded Nike and Acronym. Nor are they a special Acronym line for Nike, as you often get with designer brands doing runs in department stores. That's all. I'm not assuming anything.
  13. I got the backpack, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to return it. The size is good, it's comfortable and I like the white interior of course, but I don't like the fact the zips can never be fully closed, the shininess of the thing, and the lightweight-ness. It feels a bit delicate and fragile. Rain is surely going to seep through the zips pretty quickly as well. And it's $300. Considering the standard Nike Responder pack is $185 I'm not sure the ACG one is worth the extra. For $297 I'm thinking I'll get a 40L Mission Workshop R6 with Folio pocket, which should actually be waterproof. It's worth remembering this is not a Nike x Acronym collaboration. These are not Acronym-grade products, so we (I) should adjust our expectations accordingly. Of course the ACG backpack is not a 3A-7TS mk2. How could it be? This is why it's less good and falls on its face.
  14. I got the Responder backpack, which was sold out in five minutes, but seems to be available again on the US site right now.
  15. The pictures on acronym.de show it post-wash according to the text.
