    The copy about the durability of the face fabric doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Especially considering it's literally 2x the price of the 2015 J46s. (yeah I admit I'm jealous of that hood)

    Well I just got my first (sorta) real law job, and you know there's only one way to celebrate, so: Wtb: nothing for the moment

    arcteryx veilance

    @CARLOOA not sure if I'm just unlucky, or a particularly aggressive walker, or maybe it's my big booty. I spend most of my time sitting in the library, so I'm not doing anything too extreme. Though I do think the durability has gotten a bit better in later seasons. For whatever reason I've never had any issues with my apparat shorts either. (And, at the end of the day, everything that's failed has been replaced - so I can't really complain)

    arcteryx veilance

    Just got my first pair of chinese-made apparats, and the initial impression is... not good. They feel noticeably cheaper, the fabric is unpleasantly rough and the zippers on the cargo pockets are extremely difficult to open and close. Who knows, maybe they will last longer, but not off to a great start. Slightly less irritated edit: above concerns aside, construction seems fine. I don't think I've ever had a pair of apparats last longer than 6 months, so I can't pretend this is a new issue. If these don't fall apart I'll consider them an improvement.

    Tech Fabric Care

    For those dealing with wear on epic or stotz garments, I would suggest tenacious tape by gear aid. My J46s was starting to develop some holes, and I am really pleased with the patching I did with the tenacious tape. The black fabric tape has a nice matte finish that blends really well with the stotz. Seems pretty sturdy too.

    Nice price on the bbs x salomon jungle boots over at MRQT. Would grab them, but I can't justify another pair of boots on my student loan budget.

    sounds like fair use to me

    arcteryx veilance

    There's no way to reverse it, but you can take advantage of Arcteryx's generous warranty. I basically only wear apparats (both shorts and pants) and when they start to wear out I send them back. So far I think I've gotten at least three or four pairs replaced over the years with no issues. Also helps to hang dry them rather than using a dryer. edit: this should work just as well with pants you bought used - I've never been asked to show a receipt or anything. Albeit for that pair there is a chance they will say that they reached the end of their "natural life" due to the uniform wear and apparent age, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

    I'm taking trademarks this semester and on a lark I looked up Acronym on the US trademark register. Apparently someone has registered both "Acronym" and "Acronym Shadow" as marks for alcoholic beverages. So, uh, who knows where to find tech ninja beer?
