  1. Acronym.

    Question is, will this lead to holes long-term? Or just the peeling of the film? The latter would be tolerable, though it would compromise the material's ability to resist water in that one area. Of course, it could always be patched with tenacious tape or something once it wears away...

    I'd think the issue would be the same on both bags, as the internal pockets are the same size. Maybe it depends on how much weight is being stashed in each pocket... It's also possible I'm being way too picky. :S

    Did you pick up the olive x-pac 3a? Have you had anything similar happen?

    I've worn it twice. To be fair, it's extremely slight—just a single white crease on the inside, near the middle of the bag, just above the main zip. I can tell what's causing it; seems that, with anything in the two hanging pockets (which I use for my phone and wallet) the wait is distributed on the bag such that it sags in the middle, and creases right where the two pockets meet. Here's a pic of the spot I'm talking about (not my bag though):

    Anyone have any problems with white creases appearing on the film part of their xpac? Like areas where the material is getting flexed or bent a lot?

    Plus rep and shout-out to @Xu Jianfeng—nicest guy I've ever done business with, online or off. Very friendly, generous, and accommodating. Shipped fast as hell, and everything arrived safe and sound.
  9. Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    Depends on who you've heard this from—maybe you know someone waaaay up at the top, and you've got the super-secret-scoop—but Veilance is expanding very aggressively right now, which doesn't seem to indicate (at least to me) that it's being smothered. Arc'teryx is dumping more money into Veilance than ever before, and there's a lot in the works—plans stretching forward ~5 years at least. Now, if you've seen the stuff they're working on, and you think it all amounts to "wings being clipped..." cool, I guess. I'd just have to disagree with you. I'm not in a position to comment on what exactly accounts for the "toning down" of Veilance in the past few years. It's hard not to look at Conroy's departure as a factor, but I'm sure there were a lot of other things going on (and it's not like Veilance is just one person—it's a whole team, and not everyone has stuck around). It's also worth pointing out that Veilance started out in a much more "restrained" mode—CPU-style garments, going for platonic simplicity. It wasn't until the second or third year that things started to get a little more experimental. We're arguably coming out the other end of that now, but you could just as easily frame it as a return to form. Curious what "quality" means in this context. Arc'teryx still makes really solid stuff—if anything the tech is better than it was a decade ago (when Amer bought Arc'teryx).

    I probably won't be able to wear these, simply because my feet are insanely wide (to the point where I need custom boots—everything else is too narrow), but I actually like them quite a lot. I suspect we'll be seeing more "out there" stuff from Acronym this fall. They have to differentiate from the black-and-olive tech ninja thing all these other brands have moved in on. Hence the Shadow Project and ACG patterns, hence the exploration of camouflage. I could see white gore-tex making a comeback as well. They're trying to maintain tempo.
  11. Acronym.

    So two questions: 1. Does it still keep water out? 2. Does it still bead water on those areas that have been scuffed?
  12. Acronym.

    Can e get an update from -PB jacket owners regarding the durability of the material? How's it holding up? This posting makes me kind of nervous: https://www.grailed.com/listings/4782005-Acronym-J63-pb

    It's a completely different jacket. New patterning, different fit, and the material isn't the nylon/cotton blend of the Isogon but a 100% nylon weave. The feeling of the material is hard to explain, but I like it a lot. Can't yet comment on the details of the fit, as I haven't had the chance to try it on in my size.
  14. Urban Techwear

    Does anyone have experience sizing Ten C? I like the sleeve length when I go with a size 50, but I'm concerned adding a liner will fill the thing out and make it too tight. Also, should I go with a size 50 liner if I'm going with a 50 in the shell?
  15. arcteryx veilance

    It's important to remember that the reason they don't just come out and say "we're working on X" is because sometimes they're working on it, but it doesn't work. Sometimes it fails and they have to put it aside for a while. The very first season of Veilance was supposed to have an accompanying side-bag. Obviously that didn't come together in time—and then it never came together. They're probably looking at all sorts of things right now... expanding the Nomin line, working with film-out Gore-Tex, using different materials for wallets and other carry goods... but we probably won't see half that stuff, just because of how the design process is.
