    Wish I’d seen this earlier, would’ve snagged that raf sweat.

    I felt the same. Then said fuck it and took a seam ripper to the front pull tab ribbon and removed the clunky shock cord. Now I like them.

    If both chest pouches were somewhat loaded it probably wouldn’t feel tooo awkward I’m guessing. I’m more interested in how much of a pain in the ass it is to mount shit to that internal TS? And how useful it is based on that...?
  4. Acronym.

    I was curious about that as well. The chest pocket configuration on the 47R can be... interesting to work with at times. I’d almost rather it was a one way zip, as opposed to how it works on both. Can be a bit frustrating trying to remember where you started and stopped the zips in relation to the inner pocket, which I really like in practice, but takes a lot of practice to get used to getting the zips right so you don’t have to open both. The other pockets on the TS and previous iterations look cool, but I just can’t see myself actually using them by and large. And the TS rail itself- see my above comment about pockets.

    I’d just like to express my appreciation of the work that both of you have put in regarding this. As well as your contributions to material info, item categorization, and general product reviews. It’s members like you that made me appreciate this forum back when I was just a lurker some three years back. Glad to see you’re posting again and sharing your views and opinions.

    I’m curious to see durability reports as well, but the description on the mother site sounds less like it’s a fabric based around durability like GTPro and more for comfort like Paclite. I doubt it’s anywhere near as rugged as Stotz. I wore my P10-S daily for about 6 months straight -in a busy kitchen no less, and only had some cuff wear. The phone pocket is starting to fray on one edge now two years later but otherwise they’re strong besides tons of patina and fades. My P10-CH are getting some fraying at the front pockets but are pretty solid otherwise.

    Yeah, see I think it works better with less going on. The busyness accentuates the pleather look IMO. Granted I haven’t seen it/handled it up close so I’m probably(most likely) talking out my ass. I like the idea of it, but it almost has that uncanny valley look to it. I dunno. Not trying to yuck anyone’s yums, just wish it was in a different material.

    It reminds me too much of those overstuffed leather couches from the mid 80’s.

    Rando question, if this isn’t a good place to ask delete this shit and I’ll start a thread... anybody on here tried dying the soles of their sneaks? I got a pair of low top 80’s style Jordan’s that I wanna dye grey. They're black and grey over all but the soles are white and I feel like I’m wearing clown shoes because of it Any tips would be appreciated.
  10. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    You know you don’t wanna go on that ramen diet after wilding out today. I can help. Sell me your size medium SS-J25 in either color, 8/10 condition or better

    I really dig the design of the J63A, but just can’t get with the look of the infinium fabric. Looks too much like a trash bag from the Matrix or some shit. If it was 3XDry I’d be all over that business.
  12. Acronym.

    Sucks, those are so much more hype than the last drop...
  13. Acronym.

    Sorry, I was referring to my J47R-GT from the previous post.

    It’s not the washing that I’m nervous about- more the LACK of washing after reports of backing separation in recent posts. I’m just hoping I didn’t wait to long to wash. I wasn’t avoiding it, it just didn’t occur to me as it doesn’t look/feel/smell dirty...
  15. Acronym.

    I’m gonna wash my J47a tomorrow’s. Luckily I’ve worn it almost exclusively with some type of long sleeve mid layer. Looking at the neck though... little nervous truth be told. Is it just me, or is the wash knowledge not as wide spread as it should be for cash money garms in this respect? I’m really nervous that I didn’t wash my damn J47 100 wears ago
