    What is the general feedback on the PX? How warm is the fabric, is it worth the price tag, and is it as fragile as it looks? Also, what shoes are P23A-S owners pairing with? I have a pair in black, love the fit, but always find myself doubting my choice of shoe when I wear them.

    +P22 Great guidance on the rest, have always wondered about the P9s!

    Don't mention it P15, P17, P22 and P23 all have the same waist... I'm not certain, as I haven't owned them, but I think P25 and P27 do too. I'm usually a 34 or 36, depending on the brand, and wear a M in P17, P22 and P23. It all depends on your preference, really - the guideline is usually to go with the length that works for you. Btw, someone posted a really helpful fit pic comparison between S, M and L of the same block a while ago. I'm not sure when, you'll have to do some digging, but will be very helpful. P.S. It's worth mentioning that the fit will vary *slightly* depending on the fabric. I find that the Stotz is a little tighter than the DS/CH of the same model.

    Yeah, that looks great. The guidance posted on Acronym's website says that the L is made for a 34" waist, but, it's massively oversized, and designed to be cinched, as @thatslapz explained. Enjoy them, the P17's are ridiculously good!

    I have a 3A-1 in L2 from 15/16, and so far it's held up beautifully against light-medium rains, with no visible damage. I also have a 5TS in L1 from 13/14 with a couple of years' wear on it, and the material is starting to age rapidly, so I'd expect these to have a little less resistance. I might be wrong though.

    It's usually pretty easy to spot the fakes. Look for: the sizing of the lettering on the label (the font used in fakes is sometimes off, and the letters a little bold when compared to the real thing) colouring of the exterior Gore-Tex colouring of the inner membrane zipper pulls (look at the difference between the product shots and the jacket in this ad, as an example) In short, if it looks cheap, and is priced cheap, it probably is cheap. Also, it's worth taking a look at this forum. Not updated that often, but valuable, as the members that contribute to the thread know their stuff (shout out to @xumatrix and @danii!)

    Looks solid to me. What made you doubt its authenticity?

    Label looks wrong (bold, spacing) Different types of zipper pulls Colouration on GoreTex, zipper pull tab, microgrid, seams Last but not least, a J1A-GT for $699...

    So, any "long" term reviews of the J65-KM? @HeckHouse, you posted some great shots a while ago. How has your opinion of this one shaped over time? I'm particularly interested in how the fabric evolves over time. The quality looks very different in the fits vis-à-vis the product shots, which is to be expected, I guess. But wondering whether it gets better or worse with age. Also, would you recommend sizing up, or going with your usual size?
