    Wanted to share my thoughts on the 76 after about a month of use Been looking for an everyday type shell to replace my j1a-gt that’s a bit more low-key on design but still has the utility. Looks wise it reminds me of the 32 + elements of the 66. The 43/47 are a little too plain for me, but this strikes a nice balance between clean silhouette / storage / features. So lets talk zippers since that's the main selling point on this one. No soft plastic on the tips is great and makes one handed operation easy. Haven’t got caught as much as I thought since they lay flatter and they're not double zips like normal gravity pockets which tend to catch on most things. There is a slight snugness right at the arm joints and under the pit - no loss in mobility, just a bit of stiffness from the lamination. The holster pockets are roomy and extend far back. This can make it a bit awkward reaching smaller items at times. They can fit 2 point n shoots and don’t get in the way of arms when walking. I like having the weight distributed up here instead of lower so it doesn't weigh the jacket down and you don't feel it sag as much. Can't really access the right one if you're wearing a bag though. I like the vents as I usually run hot and works well lined with the short sleeve 65. New cinch cuff design is great. I usually never have to adjust the cuffs, but the cut is wider in the openings so even when you do cinch, you can still use the gravity pocket which was an issue with previous designs. Can also use gravity pockets with a liner attached due to the wide cuff design. You don't have to fold over the cuff to tighten - it kind of auto cinches, so when you pull the tab the cuff tightens and you can do it with one hand. Maybe not exclusive to this jacket, but the new storm hood is also great. It's deep, but conforms to the shape of your head well even when you move up and down and still gives you peripheral vision with enough overhang in front keeping the rain off your face. Expansion zip does help with interops if that's your thing. I usually wear it lined so it's a moot point. As someone had commented earlier, I do wish it had a secondary zip for helping you when you sit. I do miss the chest to neck zip like on the j1 since I like to wear things half open, but the 2 cf closures do a good enough job. Things I didn't like about the j1a gt (2.0) - Short storm hood, never felt it really did a good job, mostly wore it without. Never used any of the pockets except for flak. I found them too profile so fitting hands in them was tight / mezz pocket behind the flak usually had things falling out when bending over. All other gimmicks improved upon with the 76 (interops, gravity, cuff, storage, hood...) Biggest thing was probably sizing though since it was a small. Found it too tight to layer with the 58 and 65 and didn't like how snug it started to fit overall. So went with a medium in the 76 for more room and have been much happier.

    Anybody have any good glove recommendations? Looking for something low profile but still has some warmth and water resistancy - touch screen stuff is a plus. was eyeing the infinium stuff north face put out and might give them a trial

    Gonna echo dolphin on this one as I own both as well and the 58 is a more substantial insulator in both the material and warming categories. Mionn has a cleaner more low profile look and sizing up on the 58 helped with the overall fit and using the second zip to alleviate the bunchiness works well. Can definitely get by with the veilance if you’re looking for a cheaper insulator and can be worn stand alone. I do prefer the 58 and get plenty of usage out of it both under a shell and by itself.

    Anyone have a Ng9-ps they’d part with that’s not a $500 Grailed listing? Lmk!

    It actually does accommodate one. It’s not the most comfortable thing to wear for long periods of time and I wouldn’t do it daily, but it can be done.

    Preface I’m 5’7” 135 / wear a small So, I've wanted a pair of dry skin cropped pants for summer and this checked the boxes. Was never quite able to track down 17ds' so this was the next best thing. These are a more straight cut, wider version of the 17s instead of tapered as someone else had pointed out. I feel like they’re a bit shorter, fall mid shin instead of at the ankle. Belt system feels sturdier than my older p23ts ch’s. No buckle system implemented like the 25s etc. These have been global updates on all new pants, but the belt loop (namely the first one where the closure is) is now properly wide to accommodate thicker buckles. Both the outer and inner phone pockets now can easily fit a + sized iphone width wise, but will stick out the top a bit. They’re flow-y, super comfy and breezy exactly what I was looking for. The range of motion you get is akin to wearing a pair of shorts so you can bend and sit without restriction. I prefer DS on flow-y type pants over a stiffer/ less stretch stotz especially for hotter months. Other than that they're a no frill pant, deep front pockets, 2 back pockets and that’s really it. Standard long drop crotch without the diaper bunching. Can’t comment on ds weight vs other pants but feels decently thick prob same as 23ads etc. I’ll try and get a side by side with some p17s another time.
