  1. 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

    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?

    Welp. Finally found a blazer lt for a nice sale price and it looks like usps has lost the parcel (been sitting at "accepted" for 10 days). Anyone ever had this happen and end up getting their stuff? I need hope.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them restructure their business model again and start working with retailers. I'm not sure how I feel about them coming back, aside from the wonky design issues they did some interesting stuff for a while, but it was getting really bland the few seasons before they went dark.

    In my experience wash in works well for things that are made of pro shell. Spray on works better for stuff like nonstandard goretex (like on my monitor sft) and stotz. When I wash my J46s I hand wash, hang dry, spray on the dwr and then iron. I've used both grangers and nextec and both seem to work well.

    I don't know if it's because I was never into denim, but this whole "don't wash your clothes" thing is very strange to me. I don't own any stotz pants, but I've never had any issues washing my acr stuff.

    If anyone in conus wants a pair of black kmtrs in 11 for retail + shipping (let's say $180 pp/ $175 gift) hmu in the next day or so, otherwise they are going back.
