    Cup of water, shake dry. I did not feel a leak on the inside. The scuff is on the elbow and above, so I can’t imagine being in the rain long enough to impact function. To me J63 is more of a casual leather replacement item than an all day raincoat.

    Actually, more durable than I would have expected. From pavement. I did not stick the landing.

    I just don’t want to have to battle an ex-pres for every seasons ACRNM drop. The man has connections.

    Nike’s new do everything Epic React Flyknit are pretty sweet.

    Season 1, F/W 15; Orange Aglets and a secondary inner cell phone pocket as part of the right front pocket. Season 2, S/S 16; Cargo shorts have the same pocket configuration and Orange Aglets. Season 3, F/W 16 Cargos have Black Aglets, no phone pocket, and mesh inners on the front pockets.

    Soon it will be cheaper to winter in the tropics than to buy new ACRNM

    Damn, I have zero ACRNM bags, but a 3A-1 in RAF would be an instacop.

    Love my Hoka’s. Highly recommended. I would buy again if they ever remake ‘em in all black

    Do you think Japanese people agonize over ‘culturally appropriating’ American fashion to build....basically their whole apparel industry? Visvim, nothing but an overpriced Levi’s store circa 1970something. WTAPS, overpriced Army surplus right down to the Woodland camo and BUDS logos. And the SUFU ultra-rare Japanese denim threads are every bit as insane as the ACRNM forum. Great artists steal.

    Was at NikeLab Chicago today, they still have Black ACG cargos in store. Dunno if they will ship

    I was wearing a Heattech shirt today, underneath a ACG insulator and a ACRNM J47GT. Plenty warm in sub-zero Midwest weather. But then I do run hot (Heated seats and steering wheel are helpful too!). But I wouldn’t call it a base layer, more of a thermal fashion layer maybe? Which sort of begs the question of how to differentiate between the people that are asking about real performance layers vs those that just want to stay warm during static to moderate outdoor activities. Frigid temps for an hour or so walking the doggo, almost anything that traps a layer of air will do. Near freezing rain with no easy shelter to be found, the outside of your fleece/inside of your shell soaking wet from exertion? Be damn glad you’ve invested in wool. That kind of shitty weather will KILL you.

    Love wool for a base layer, not as much for insulation. My calculations would be more along the line of Cali weather + under shell = Fleece. I know I harp on about wind shirts and the over valuation of shells, but here’s some reading that may explain my thinking: https://www.itstactical.com/gearcom/apparel/comprehensive-guide-protective-combat-uniform/

    Down is slightly warmer, and a little bit lighter. Synthetics compress better and retain warmth when wet. If you need a coat for cold and dry, down is fine. But if the cold is wet too, buy something with man made insulation. Note that the Military does not use down.

    I heard that there was not enough F/W 17 to go around, so not every regular shop got stock, there would be no retail S/S 18, but F/W 18 would be back in all the usual stores?

    Keep checking the NikeLab site. In past years cargos have restocked
