    Oh, by the way, word is going round that Conroy is gone again.

    Neither the Mionn IS Jacket nor the Conduit are going to get you down to -20C (I'd know—I run warm, and even I need more than that below, say, -10). Even if you're wearing a shell. That being said, the Mionn IS is warmer than the Conduit, at least in my experience. Keep in mind that the Conduit's baffles aren't very thick—the jacket is basically a Cerium SL in terms of warmth. The Mionn IS is a total monstrosity as far as warmth goes. For -20C though, I'd go with a Monitor Down.

    How are people finding the PB/FO stuff is holding up? Has it kept you dry? How’s the abrasion resistance? A little dubious on the idea of a shakedry j1a...

    Not going to ask for specifics, obviously, but if anyone with subnet access can give me a yes or no answer, that'd be cool—can we expect any non-TS interops jackets this fall? Maybe less expensive than the J47TS-GT? Hard to imagine finding a use for that webbing...

    “I’ll spend a thousand bucks on a jacket, but god forbid the company I’m buying from should find a way of saving a bit of money on manufacturing.” I really don’t get this combative attitude that people have towards the companies they’re buying from. You’re saying Veilance should only move to China if it means prices go down for the consumer? Do you think that’s how the world works? You were going to buy the product anyways; quality is the same, if not better; now Veilance makes more money, which means more Veilance in the future. You do like Veilance... right?

    wts: 3a-1 olive xpac Have a look here: https://www.grailed.com/listings/6081568 Obviously I don’t want to pay Grailed fees, so give me a shout and I’ll give you a sufu deal.

    Quick thoughts on the Anneal and the new Graph. The Anneal fits like a marshmallow, the cuff is weird, and it's really really warm. Also unbelievably light. The new Graph has the same problem as the Dyadic Hoody: those front pockets sit strangely and make me look like I have a belly. The cut's also wider, and the collar is sort of like the Nemis collar... sort of bacony in the way it ripples... Not impressed with either.

    WTS: 3a-1, olive xpac, barely used. Asking ~1400 USD. Posting here for my sufu peeps; would rather sell to you guys than Grailed, so hit me up.

    Had the chance to handle the Isogon MX today. Fits very much like the regular Isogon, but it’s longer and with maybe a bit more room in the arms, presumably for layering. The four-way stretch in the material is a welcome change for Veilance, and hopefully a sign of things to come; generally Veilance tends to favour structure over drape, and while the Isogon MX is by no means “drapey,” it certainly tends to hang a little more that other pieces.

    The site monitor I used to use always did stuff like that. Not sure if it’s picking up on actual changes being made somewhere or what. General question for subnet boys out there—how many (if any) interops jackets can we look forward to this F/W? S/S has been sadly lacking...

    That went up months ago.

    The old Mionn IS Jacket is in the workbook--but workbooks sometimes lie, so I'm not gonna say for sure one way or another. But no way the Mionn will stay dead.

    It’ll be back. Hooded one too.

    In a world where Acronym prices jump every season, Good Guy Veilance keeps prices real. Some highlights from the new stuff: Conduit LT, ~700CAD - down midlayer - 850 fill goose down, with 80 gsm and 40 gsm Coreloft in certain spots for moisture management - bomber-style collar, like the old Graph Cardigan Isogon MX, ~700CAD - hooded softshell, a la Gamma LT Hoody - Burley Double Weave and Schoeller Dynamic, so four-way stretch throughout - apparently derived from the regular Isogon, though it looks like it's cut a lot longer Anneal Down, ~1300CAD - a short parka with a stormhood; warm af - Gore Thermium face (that's basically 2L Windstopper bonded to synthetic insulation), with an inner layer of 850 fill goose down, plus 60 gsm Coreloft in the pits probably - notably not waterproof, but too warm to wear in rainy conditions anyways; depending on the size of the down baffles this could be as warm as (or warmer than) the Node Down
