    My bad. Either way- that pocket structure needs sterner fabric and/or an overall re-work to function one handed.

    Yes. Unfortunately. The P16A is a much better design IMO. I’m frankly surprised the went with the same pocket design (roughly) as the P10-A. I had a pair in CH and found the pockets very fiddley and always needed two hands to close unless opened under certain circumstances. I love the look of the P10-A style pockets architecturally, but in practice... I can only imagine how poorly they perform with DS or Epic. Stotz probably performs a bit better due to its relative rigidity but I’d imagine the results are negligible.

    Has the hype really gotten that big that they can’t contain this type of activity? I’m frankly amazed that they haven’t prepared for this kind of push at this point. Having something drop out of your cart is one thing. But for the whole site to crash? That’s a new one on me.

    I dunno about anybody else’s experience, but for me on an IPhone 8 with pretty damn fucking güd WiFi, the website is a nightmare to navigate right now. Constant error codes, dead image boxes. Just complete bullshit. I’ve never seen their site fail this bad. Is this peak hype? Or did Errolson forget to pay his webpage dude?

    He didn’t resort to racist bullshit like you did. Just used plain terms. Unlike you. Your shitty excuse for listed with clear price and pics and whatever the fuck is complete bullshit. You never stated anything regarding offers and haven’t contributed Jack to the community. Unlike @Xu Jianfeng who’s been repping since you were oozing down the leg. Fuck off.

    I think there’s just a general backlash lately to the amount of non-community members trying to cash in after seeing the prices on grailed... And hell, a line needs to be drawn in the sand somewhere. I probably could’ve gone on grailed and charged some poor noob 5-600 dollaroos for my beat up P10’s, but I’d rather pay it forward so to speak.

    WTS: EDIT: PANTS SOLD GIANT MAKEUP BAG STILL AVAILABLE P10-S in size small. These have seen a looooot of use. They’re patina’d, faded, stained, and frayed but are still structurally sound. Selling cheap in the hopes that someone who’s looking to try out a pair can do so without the sticker shock, or if you just want a beater pair of the best pants everrrrrrr. Only letting them go as I’m starting to outgrow them due to my calve thiccness. Asking $300 shipped in the US, paypal f/f. Outside the US you’ll have to add on some cash. Also looking to sell a 3A-E1-L in lightly used condition. Has some minor patina but is solid otherwise. Looking for $100 shipped in the US, add monies if you’re from elsewheres.

    Granted these could be construed as a collector’s items at this point. But after spending some 20 years in the collectible comics market I can say with some semblance of surety that two things are highly indicative of perceived value: 1: Rarity 2: Condition i see a slight disconnect here in regards to one of those descriptors regarding the asking price on this lot...

    I share a majority of @CARLOOA‘s concerns in this regard. Time to brigade E’s twitter methinks. In other news... WHATS THE WORD ON THEM GRAV POCKETS DAMMIT!?!? I want them pics and reviews already you dirty cyberpunk wannabe mutherfuckers(said with the greatest love/self effacement)

    This sounds about right. I recall the ‘15 J1A still lingering on the mothersite back when I first got into this shit in early ‘16. I still kick myself for not going balls out and buying every damn thing on the site cuz they was priced not so hype and hanging out onsite for fucking MONTHS back then. #meh

    PayPal will always fuck you on the exchange. If you want no fucking: Go into your PayPal settings and change it so your bank sets the exchange rate. Your bank will keep track of the daily exchange rate and it will adjust it per each transaction.

    Curious to see how repositioned grav pockets work out for peeps. They’re my least favorite aspect of both my J34 and J-47R. They always snag on just about any type of bag I’m wearing and causing the zip pulls to stick out and then I notice the pulls sticking out either due to rubbing on my jacket/random shit and or I just see them sticking out and get annoyed. And loading and unloading just ain’t that fun. They feel extremely time/mission specific. Be nice if the pocket was a compression style, cuz stuff just rattles around in there. Hell- half the folding knives I’ve tried carrying just fall right out past the snap. So yeah, here’s to hoping Shit is betterer now. ( Be nice to have a grav free option for a couple hundred less tbh... )

    It’s my understanding from reading on here and talking to fellow members that the DS is more wear resistant, less likely to pill, and slightly ‘heavier’. I’ve not owned the previous iterations so can’t say for sure. I only own the S15-DS which is a thinner version of the old DS as far as I know. The face of the fabric on the new DS feels silkier and less coarse than the DS on the S15 IMO.

    So, I’ve been wearing the latest drop of P10-DS hard. Like really hard. Almost daily since I bought them at the end of last summer. Looking at a close to six months of daily. I’ve worn them in a busy professional kitchen environment. I’ve worn them in the rain and snow and in-between. I’ve hiked in them, and drunkenly explored urban confines in them. I’ve crawled around in weird places in them. I’ve sat in my couch for hours in them playing the vid games. I’m pretty convinced that this iteration of DS is one of the best materials out there for a pair of pants. They are light and move with you/stretch, are ultra comfy and luxe feeling -but at the same time don’t feel flimsy, inconsequential or cheap/synthetic like some 4 way stretch material. I’ve been highly surprised by the durability- not found a single instance of fraying, abrasion or pilling. My S15-DS has minor pilling where my arms naturally brush against my trunk area. None of that on these. There’s been times when I’ve had an oh fuck moment where I thought they snagged in something or some shit but turned out to be nothing. Whereas it would’ve been an issue with other shit I’ve worn(presumably). The stain resistance, wind resistance and water beading is great. My only minor gripe is that they do tend to hold odors a bit more than the S or CH versions I own. I may notice that more so based on wearing them in a kitchen environment where some food smells are highly exaggerated both due to strength and frequency(I’ve worn the S and CH versions in the same environment without this issue or at least not to the same degree). If they ever release an iteration of the SS-J25 in this material I’ll happily wade through a sea of razor blade brimmed MAGA snap back wearing aerosolized Ebola spewing yeezy clad mumble rappers festooned in Siberian razor wire coated with Supreme replicating nanites just to get that shit. And I’m not just saying all of this because they costed many of the dollaroos. Shit is güd fam.

    Hah! I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought these were a fucking ridiculous pair of trousers. Unless you’re into BDSM, then I can see the appeal...

    I lucked out when I bought my first pair of P10-S offa grailed, (this was back in 2016 before everyone was trying to retire off their used gear). Dude was very patient with my fit questions and asked straight up what kind of build I have to save me any aggravation(Dude was jealous of my calves). Gave me the confidence to buy my first stupidly expensive pair of pants. I really like the different drapes/profiles you get across the spectrum of materials for the P10’s.

    2016 3ts w/Raccagni zip over here. Worn practically daily for close to 3 years and have used it in all kinds of wet weather from downpours to freezing rain and haven’t noticed any leakage going on.

    That ‘unwelcoming’ community has helped multiple new members over the last couple weeks identify potential fake ACR pieces, not to mention field questions on gear use and fits. If your ego wasn’t shoved so far up your orifice of choice you’d realize that @TEKsevenZERO‘s comment wasn’t directed at you but at the flippers trying to cash in old gear at new prices.
