    I would like to add too additional advantages of the Nomin Pack and Seque Tote. Don't know it's by coincident or intended to be designed in this way. But both their length sits perfectly on a carry-on luggage. The handle fits perfectly with the suitcase's one.

    01/17 I bought 32-32 and 30-32, the 32-32 is what I ordered for a colleague. 08/16 I have 30-32. The 08/16 30-32 is actually smaller than 01/17 30-32. And thanks to Capsuletoronto, they measured the waist for me before I placed my next order. Then I got another batch 30-32 but same sizing as 01/17 version.

    And it shall be the same batch but dyed in different color. I experienced similar sizing issue in Voroni SS version, but it is because the batch is different. The 08/16 is also like one inch smaller than 01/17. It is really a risk for those Veilance user like me who buy most of the items oversea. Simply because we only have agent rather than direct Arc'teryx store in my country. The agent buyers picked only few items rather than the whole series. I still don't understand why it is different sizing in different color, since both Black and Peat need to be dyed... And if fabric relaxing is an issue, then it means the factory didn't wait enough time for the fabrics to relax...it's alarming.

    Just got a Peat 30" field pants, What I would like to share here is, the sizing in black and peat color is different. Peat is like one inch smaller than the black. This is quite annoying to me because I tried the black 30" in store, it fits me perfectly. Since the peat color is not available in Taiwan so I ordered it from Capsuletoronto. Then after almost 3 weeks long wait, being forwarded from Canada to Taiwan, at the moment I opened the bag, I noticed the waist may not be the same size as the black one I tried in store. I still can put it on and okay to walk around for a day, but it's just not that comfortable as black 30", especially when I sit down. Since it has been over 7-10 business days that Capsuletoraonto shipped it. I can only keep it and thinking maybe I shall get another black one from somewhere else... Another issue I would like to share is, it is shorter than the Indice. I think it is intended to be designed in this way and you can tell from the official website pictures. And YES, it is made in China. A bit disappointed spending 650CAD then got something made not far away from me.

    Very much appreciated your comments on the V2 Nomin. However I can't access the pictures. Are they level limited in this site? I do want to see those pictures..

    Where is the mall? Or do they have a website?

    Try Mr. Porter, SSENSE, they ship to wherever you are with easy return. And with reasonable price, sometimes even cheaper. Mr. Porter free return. SSENSE you need to cover the return shipping fee, however, compare with the convenience you can try them on. It's trivial.

    I have an Indisce too, I think the material and cutting is better than Anode. I don't know about the new Anode, but I had a previous version, the spiral cutting over the knee just a bit annoying. Sometimes the seam line rubs my knee or the culf region just twisted then it became tighter which is quite uncomfortable... I would like to echo that Veilance pants doesn't fit to those who have bigger calfs. I have an Align pants in 30W, which fits perfectly on the waist, but very tight in the calf. And Voronoi AR is something that not my pants. Another minor thing I would like to share is Veilance adjusted the Voronoi SS size a bit bigger from 17 SS. I bought one 17 SS (01/17) Navy blue version which fits me perfectly then I purchased another black one on MR PORTER. Then I got an last year version (08/16), which is like one inch smaller than 17SS version. I had to return it and buy it again from another website. Before I bought it, I repeatedly confirmed the version and sizing from the retailer. Thanks to Capsuletortoronto, I got what I want.

    Mr. Porter UK site has some already, and it seems they are ready for some items. (From the model picture, Patrol Coat has arrived too)

    I think what should be taken in to consideration when putting Blazer LT as a formal (I would said semi-formal) circumstance is, whether you need several buttons to make it look formal. I would say Blazer LT + Voronoi is somehow perfect to me. I own two pairs of Blazer LT + Voronoi in both black and blue. The color just matches perfectly. If you really want to look formal then I would suggest you put on Quoin vest, it helps a lot. If you regard the fabric of Voronoi is too soft, then try Align pants, it is harder but you should well choose your shoes, the length of Align pants is not very long to fully cover your ankle. Indisce is another good choice, looks better (thicker, therefore, harder) than Blazer LT. But it is just warmer. I once put it on for a very formal lecture, my colleagues gave very positive feedback to the Indisce.

    The Nomin pack is one of the most frequent used backpack I have. It is really light and, different from other outdoor backpacks, it doesn't have the wrist bands. For those who use in the city, the wrist band is redundant. And I wasn't quit interested into the Tote bag either, but when I got it from a friend. the long and short handles make it so useful. Veilance is something you may doubt yourself why you shall pay so much for it, but when you got it you realize it is worthy what you paid.

    I think I accidentally revealed Veilance 2017 F/W webpage. However, when I clicked on 2017 F/W, it shows as below link, there is nothing new.. https://veilance.arcteryx.com/ProductFind.aspx?country=ca&language=en&collection=Veilance_Collection_Fall_2017 I think they are preparing to launch of 2017 F/W and the Veilance webiste purchasing UI has been revamped. The way to show the stock and the detail pictures is different from before. More user friendly to shop around their website. Can't wait to see what's new in 2017 F/W series.
