    Acronym.

    Many tries grappling with the raccangi on my J50 taught me how particular a zip can be - that said it’s since gotten a lot easier, not sure if it’s just technique or wear... ...but the 59 zipper seemed okay on the few wears I’ve managed. Only thoughts, I wish it were a raccangi purely because the thicc chunky zipper just fits the aesthetic of the jacket.

    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    Think I might keep my trusty P23A after comparisons. WTT/WTS P30A-DS XL I’ll just put $2K but open to your offers. More interested in (but maybe not limited to) the following, all in XL where applicable: GT-J4 Grey P25H-DS/P25-DS S14-AM NG7-AM 3A-1

    Yeah, it's wonderful. Only managed a handful of solid wears, was lucky there happened to be a cold spell just before the rain season/hot weather kicked off here. It's the first GT I've been interested in in a while, apart from the J16 update. Getting used to the noise again was interesting. Last GT I owned was a J43A, about 3-4 years ago maybe and I sold it not long after buying. It has so many great features but still simplified and light. I'm normally an XL in Acronym but after a good measure (or 20-30...) of my J46-S it was clear the L would be sufficient. I could easily fit a tee/sweater/liner combo under there. J74 and J63A zip right in. It's very roomy, in the best way. There's a lot less skin contact inside so wearing with just a tee or a tank feels good. Used the snap closure almost every time (except during a good downpour one night). Looking forward to zipping up properly over next winter. The shock cord really affects the shape quite drastically. The cuffs are brilliant - I was worried about becoming steamy/hot in the sleeves - but they breathe very well. I'm reasonably tall - 191cm and the shape/silhouette looks good with a slimmer pant (P10A) or low/wide swag (P23A). In original config it's a unique piece - but versatile too, in the sense that if you whip the hood off it's a nice simple black bomber which changes the feel completely. So happy with it overall.

    The 3 patches of Infinium are there to stop the zipper heads making an impression/tearing the fabric on the front pockets. I got the same jacket back, pretty certain it was cleaned too (maybe steam cleaned etc). Very carefully packed so as to not wrinkle the front pockets.
