  1. arcteryx veilance

    Canned for this season, I'm told. They weren't happy with what was coming back from the factories. I'm just sort of baffled by the fact that they haven't brought back the Mionn IS Comp Jacket...

    Has anyone else found that when they go true to size with acronym the garment is usually a little tight across the chest? This has been my experience. I wonder if sizing up would be my only recourse, or if it’s something special about the fit that I’m missing (the rest of the jacket usually feels fine).

    The Graph Cardigan has been a big suprise for me, in terms of versatility. It’s slim enough to fit under a lot of stuff (my Mionn vest and jacket, my Achrom...) but warm enough to be worn on its own even in pretty cool conditions. Also looks sharp af.

    There are also some massive changes coming to the Graph for FW19. So if you like the current version... stock up.

    No changes to the pattern or materials; just one new colour (dark navy).

    I’ve been assuming this stuff is basically the “shakedry” goretex we’ve been seeing around—the stuff showing up in mainline arc’teryx and 7mesh—but with a more substantial backer. If that’s the case, shaking it dry makes sense given the name... My only issue is that the stuff can’t be very durable at all if it’s the same outer as shakedry. It certainly wouldn’t stand up to prolonged and repetitive abrasion (from bags, for example).

    WTS: Mionn IS Jacket, M, Black BNWT + garment bag Asking 450 USD (retails for 650 USD), though I'm willing to entertain other offers

    It’s not listed because that version of the jacket has been discontinued—they’re making some small changes for spring 18.

    If what I’ve heard is true, my goodness, you’re not going to like what’s coming next year... Personally I find the Patrol Down way too warm, even without the shell on. It actually feels warmer than the Monitor Down... not sure if that’s just subjective though. And I really don’t like the cut of the shell—the hood is weirdly small, and the length is in this weird in-between... not the Node, but not the Monitor either. I much prefer the Patrol IS.

    A really remarkable chunk of the Nomin’s volume is occupied by padding. But unless there was some sort of typo, yeah, the volume is actually less than the Seque. Having used both I can say I agree with you completely: that thing can take a lot of stuff. I just wish the material didn’t scuff and crease the way it does.
  11. Acronym.

    The reason I ask is that all the other items featured in the video are currently visible on the site, listed as "coming soon," but not the NG4.

    So is the NG4 happening next drop? Or never? Why was it in the video?

    And unlike with mainline—where shells have wrist adjusters—Veilance usually just has elastics.

    Veilance is definitely more "tailored," but at your height/weight you should be okay. The only issue you may encounter is that sleeves can be a little tighter in Veilance, I guess because they're not as concerned with mobility as mainline. In any case, sizing up usually doesn't go well in my experience.

    The Nomin pack is 18 liters, the Seque is 20.
