@RemarkableArmor it definitely took my 3TS more time to break in, not sure if it’s the logistics of the bag layout or if it’s due to not zipping as much as the jacket? I have the 2016 3TS and I’ve worn it almost daily since purchase, so that might make a difference may have made a difference in regards to your 3A-1...? Dunno really
I was really tempted by the 59, and probably would’ve hopped on it without a seconds thought if it was paclite, or basically anything but 3L. I really dig the design overall.
The only thing I’ve snagged from the current season thus far is the P10A-E in alpha green, and I’m in fucking love with them. Quickly become my favorite pants fabric. The weight, drape, breathability, and level of water resistance/drying time all fit my purposes perfectly. It’s the only fabric I’ve found that I can wear in 80 degree weather and not immediately feel like I have twin greenhouses on my legs. I’ll probably snag any future pants models that drop in this fabric. It’s that good IMO.
