  1. It was -20 here the other night, and I wore the NG4-AK with a hat—I was very comfy. This meme that it’s not warm/functional is bizarre.

    Pouch question for everyone here.

    What other brands are out there that make decent pouches, specifically ones that would be slim and light for Tec Sys jackets?

    I come from an outdoors background so I know all the good military brands and websites, but none of them make low profile pockets I would want to put on my J1TS-S or a J64TS-S. They all look a bit bulky and lack that certain aesthetic.

    Triple Aught Design OP1 is a great pouch I have on my backpacks, but it's too weighty for J1 front panel.

    The only brands I know of other than Acronym that have that low profile look are; Enfin Leve, Orbit Design (I have a few of their pouches) and AOKU. I'm hoping there's some more out there.

    Any recommendations appreciated

    Bagjack will do custom stuff, so if you want something completely unbranded, you can just shoot them an email. I’ve heard they won’t do x-pac stuff, but their cordura stuff is quite nice, and would work well on a J1TS.

     I've a feeling that Outlier hit the point where the brand's basic concept worked but the business was heading in a direction that wasn't that interesting to the founders. I'm sure the new product a week, or what ever it is, drops and sourcing new fabrics is way more interesting than figuring out how to sell the same pair of pants made from Scholler dryskin day in and day out. I kind of like the weirdness of their experiments, but like many things, that sentiment likely won't lead to my financial support.

    You’re probably right.

    I’m sad that a lot of my favourite pieces (the runweight and the OG cloth pieces) have been discontinued, with little in the way of exciting things coming out as experiments. So many definitive pieces are gone—the OG Classics, the Climbers, the Dyneema backpacks, the supermarine bomber, all the great merino sweaters...

    It just seems like the current product line lacks focus or direction. I’m not trying to hate though—I hope this fall gives me reason to recant.


  4. What's the overall length of the P30A with the extended cuff added? The measurements on the site seem to only list the outseam for when they're in 3/4 mode. Is "3/4 mode" to be taken literally here?

    all the p30a's for sale in the sales thread was a bit discouraging, seemed like many people we're not liking them, but I got mine in and my initial impressions are very strong. ill perhaps edit this post with a fit pic so I can be the tall guy reference. I think I'm happy with sizing up for length, but even at 6'3ish I would think a medium would still be fine

    So I'm guessing you went with large?

    Kind of funny, but after combing this thread for sizing references, I still don't really know how I should size as a 6'1" skinny dude.


  6. Great stuff Neromancer!

    Regarding the annoyance of undoing three buckles to get to the main compartment: 90% of the time I only do up the centre buckle, and that works fine for me (when you look at pics of how Errolson sets his up, he actually has mods blocking the use of at least one of the three buckles, and it looks like he only ever really uses the centre buckle).

    Also, I'm curious—I've had a hard enough time keeping mods from detaching from the webbing on my 5TS (mostly it's an issue with the MK pockets)—are those loops really reliable for keeping mods attached? Seems like they'd be kind of flimsy...

    New inverted x-pac 3A-1 in this instagram pic. Pretty sure it's just the stuff they're currently using, but inside-out. Saw Ian rocking the same material on a 3A-5TS on insta a little while ago...

    Wouldn't be surprised to see these as part of the next big bag drop.
