    ~345eur before VAT and shipping, which is roughly in line with price hikes over the past few years.

    Grabbed a 3A-2, after months of anticipatory refreshing on the mothersite. Always wanted one. Looking at the product photos, it looks like the J47-GT is getting interops next time around.

    It’s normal for the X-Pac models at least. My old laminate 3A-1 barely sagged there, but my X-Pac 3A-1 does it like crazy. Eventually leads to creasing and separation of the backer from the woven nylon face, so I’ve patched it with Dyneema tape, and that seems to be holding up fine.

    Does that plastic d-ring attaching the jacket sling look right? Interesting to see an older hardware configuration...

    https://www.fromjapan.co.jp/en/auction/yahoo/input/o331364009/lgk-link_search This is interesting. Looks like the GT-J1 from fw-0304, but I only have a tiny grainy image of that, so I can’t be sure. Seems like a weird thing to fake, but I wonder if anyone can weigh in on its authenticity.

    Grailed boys need to realize the market has changed. Not nearly as much hype as a few years ago; trying to make a profit off this stuff is going to lead to stock that just sits and sits and sits. Case in point: all the J1A-GT 2.2s just sitting there for weeks...

    Well I guess the questions thread is gone, so if anyone can tell me what the buckles on the left of Errolson's 3a-5ts are, I'd be appreciative. They look like compression buckles, but they're all female?

    Agreed. I was okay with the initial changes, but the current stuff is trash.

    Really wish they would do an updated DS version of the J16. The GT's pattern is so great, I feel like it would be perfect in DS.

    Is it perfect? Snug fit? How practical is it, having to undo all those buckles just to get at the MK3?

    Question about the 3A-5TS: On images of the 3A-6TS I can see that the 3A-MK3 fits nicely between its compression buckles. It looks like the 3A-MK1 is a little too big to fit between them. Is the space between compression buckles the same on the 3A-5TS? In other words, could one fit the MK3 between buckles on the 5TS? More broadly speaking, what kind of modulars do you guys use on the 5TS/6TS? Thinking about different options right now.

    I could be totally wrong, but this might be the new duffle on the bottom left:

    Some immediate thoughts on the CP4-WS: - It's extremely light and thin; creasing doesn't seem to be a problem out of the box (I was worried I'd have to steam it before wearing it, but no). No question this thing is supremely packable, and I'll likely be stashing it in my 3A-1 for days when it's threatening to rain. - Not sure how much rain this thing will be able to take; what's the practical wisdom regarding windstopper and water resistance? - "Half cover mode" is not as symmetrical as I thought it would be, zipped up. From the pictures I got the impression the zipper would rest perpendicular to the floor; in reality, it rests slightly diagonally (check the photos on the mothersite—it's not just Lenny's lean). - "Full cover mode" is how I'll likely be using this piece most of the time. The site provides instructions on how to orientate the cape for this mode, but I just reach up and centre the hood with both hands, and the cape sort of falls into place. If I haven't put my right arm through the jacket sling before switching to this mode, the weight from the sling will pull the hood clockwise and mess up the alignment. Not a huge problem, as I expect I'll be using the sling a fair bit. - The snap near the wrist is only on the left side. I'm not sure what it's for; I'd thought it might be to keep the cape from rotating on its own, but so far I haven't had that issue. Furthermore, keeping it snapped seems to mess up the drape a little bit; the cape looks better when the snap isn't done up. - It's quite long. I'm 6'1"; when I'm wearing it in jacketsling mode, the sling needs to be totally tightened, or there's a risk it'll touch the floor (Lenny's shorter than me, and you can see how low it goes when he has it fully tightened). - The "one size" aspect is wonderful; it allows me to wear this over basically anything. I tried it over my Graph Cardigan and my Mionn IS Jacket with no issues at all. It also fits over my 3A. I suspect the right side was left intentionally longer than the left to accommodate bag use (after all, the hood could have been placed on the other side of the zipper—they had a choice). - Hood adjusters work like a dream. The hood itself provides lots of coverage. - SITH LORD VIBES.

    FWIW, it looks like the image has been removed from the site, so I'll take that as an indication that someone higher up doesn't want people seeing it; so, deleted.

    I had to go back through your post history to see that there was drama surrounding that. Wow, people here are fucking retarded. No wonder no one posts here anymore.
