    So you gave up on trying to finesse an achrom from the warranty department?
  3. arcteryx veilance

    You should discuss it with the veilance warranty team as opposed to us. What was the problem on your previous jacket?

    I think you're severely underestimating the production process of Veilance considering the complexities of each pieces' pattern. The garments aren't as industrialized as you may think it is, 1 Patrol Down jacket takes about 15 hours to make (my memory might be hazy but it's within this estimated time).

    I think this goes hand in hand to how Veilance is the epitome of minimalist technical wear for the city and that people are willing to pay the price, take this statement with a grain of salt.

    WTB GG ES-PL03 in a size small, I'm about to buy it from the website and just wanted to see if anyone here is willing to sell theirs first

    Anyone can provide insight and experience with their indisce blazer?

    If possible the Arris and Field OS I've felt it on hand but always been on the edge about buying it and could never really pull the trigger on those two items.

    Or if you want to go even more minimal - Feit

    buy a pair of any low cut leather shoes it'll pretty much do what you want and since you don't like bulkier shoes maybe try CP bball lows? Cp achilles will be too tight for your feet.

    I just want to chime in my own personal experience with the V1 & V2 nomin since it's mostly opposite of what you've felt. Disclaimer: I like the nomin V1 much more than V2 but I'll do my best to be unbiased. The V1 flaws you've listed I haven't either experienced or I think is actually an advantage. The ladder lock slipping easily I haven't experienced whatsoever and while the V2 excels at keeping the straps fastened it's very uncomfortable tightening the straps and I find the straps too loose even when I tightened it up to the max point. However the straps on the V2 are comfortable especially for heavier loads as it doesn't pull much into the pits. I've experienced difficulties using the zippers in the V2 around the corners rather than the V1. The zippers travel the corner smoothly in my v1 with a simple pull motion however for the V2 i have to guide the zipper around the corner and use more force. I don't know if the zipper on my V2 was faulty or not but my V1 gave a much smoother experienced around the corners. The floating pocket for both v1 and v2 are pretty good except the V2 has a slight advantage with this portion. THE V2 floating pocket is easily implemented with the front loading theme of the V2 (pardon my jargon i might be wrong) and doesn't get in the way while the V1 side loading floating pocket does serve it's intended use as a quick access pocket (i carry cables, keys, eye glass case, calculator, pencil case, or anything that I need to store or take on a whim) it really get in the way of using the front compartment for storage due to its placement and huge size. The V1 does collapse and sag on itself and that's related to how the front compartment was constructed. The front compartment's shape is odd, its structured at the bottom to the midsection while the top section is loosely structured by darts to provide some structure when it's not loaded. This leads to that sag where the top section collapses on itself when it's unloaded. Now I actually like this.. it breaks away from the "Boxy" feel people typically get from this bag and takes up less space when its unloaded but that's just me. I never saw the front compartment as a primary dump it all storage unit unlike the V2's front compartment but rather as a secondary dump it all unit when the main compartment is full. When loading on the V1's front compartment i like to shove objects with larger volume and odd shapes at the bottom and flatter or lesser volume objects at the top following the asymmetrical like construction of the front compartment. The bungee cord isn't really that hard to fasten or provides that much difficulty I think you exaggerated on that portion, I carry a laptop on the laptop sleeve, a textbook and some notebooks on the compartment ontop of it and I didn't experienced that much difficulty but I did experienced slight resistance from the bungee cord when fastening and that's pretty much it. I haven't felt fatigue in both bags with a laptop inside of it however I felt greater fatigue with the V1 when I'm carrying it using the top handle; the V2's top handle is better. Being a daily commuter often taking the bus and subway the V2 was uncomfortable to place on my lap as it protrudes greatly on any orientation due to it's length. Laying it flat on my lap sideways, along my lap, and even standing upright it felt inconvenient in smaller spaces as it reaches upwards to my bottom lip The V1 however i could easily place upright on my lap and is right under my chin and placing it sideways doesn't protrude greatly to the other seat. For some people this is a minor inconvenience however for someone like me who takes the bus and train 7 days a week it's a major inconvenience. Again I did my best to write this as impartial as possible however i believe some parts came out biased..

    Have you ever washed the jacket before and how did you apply DWR, did you use a dryer to reactivate/activate the DWR coating? What jacket do you have, if it's goretex you're experiencing a significant amount of wetting out which can be attributed to Gore Delamination or heavily used and unwashed goretex also based on your comment regarding the face fabric absorbing water that your jacket has a nylon face fabric which is a hydrophillic material. Hydrophillic materials absorb water ~ Nylon absorbs water inherently. Regarding the "proudly grantees the quality, performance, and fit of all our products" that statement is more or less about how each of their product remains a certain tolerance range of each sizing hence their sizing across a whole batch of the same model has a consistent sizing; a medium will always fit like a medium and never like a small or large. However this doesn't mean the fit of the jacket is guaranteed to work on you, fit is subjective as we all have different body types, it's still up to you to get the right size and understand if the fit works on you or not.

    I'm getting alot of hate for it but I stand by it. The fit looks like someone who got hold of a full acronym gear and wore it. In a way it looks like someone who's being worn by the internet completely head to toe without individualism and personality within it.

    man idk what it is but you don't do acronym justice

    75% cotton 25% nylon I believe No stretch but fabric isn't rigid due to cotton
