    Thanks for pointing that out @piece keeper I can't believe I didn't think that with other items I have w detached pockets ex: SISP moleskin cargos. Initially I thought it was more for looks but that makes perfect sense. It does help to alleviate the feeling of extra weight. Assuming this is the same for the J63a pockets as well but can't verify as my aux zip is currently getting rearranged....hopefully.

    Should be fine, I sized the same as you and was a bit tight at first (usually 11.5 Nike and took an 11). Loosened up w some wear but as mentioned above I took the laces out and only use the zipper.

    1. Ship to agreed upon intermediary or 2. Buy each other’s jackets outright I understand it’s not ideal since you lose a bit on shipping and PP fees, but that’s going to happen w any trade unless it’s w someone you know. Anyways good luck.

    Maybe you two should chat...lol read the thread guys

    Anyone complaining about having to search the thread for HTS codes etc... Honestly, how hard is it to copy/paste the info and save it as a document for future reference? Also save, bookmark, whatever this https://outdoorindustry.org/resource/oia-legislation-establishes-new-woven-performance-outerwear-classifications/ PDF at the bottom of the page. Back on track, really looking forward to getting the 63a. I thought the black PX fabric looked much more trash baggie than the FO. I feel the products shots probably don’t do the FO justice for how it will appear in person. Mothership shots have an image to compare after 3 months of use like w the raw edges they did during SS. Like many items only time and a bit of abuse will tell. edit: damn @xh79 now I’m even more anxious for a shipping notice after your post

    Think this may have been mentioned but don’t the sleeves in the 72-AK look much longer than the DS? Also hidden zipper would’ve looked better imo. edit: DS iteration has cuff buttons which make sleeves sit higher when closed.

    Noticed that as well, wondering if anything else will come with them.

    Anything specific? I was able to check out the down bomber, parka and field jacket a couple weeks ago. For me TTS for the jackets worked well, could size up on the bomber since it’s typical bomber fit and cut on the shorter side. Definitely a puffy jacket w the insulation. I didn’t realize the field jacket was quilted and the vest looks pretty badass in person.

    Have a pair in 11.5 and 12 and the 11.5's are noticeably tighter, especially in the tongue area. Your friend my have wide feet and stretched out his pair making them feel looser as well. Edit: Also curious about the cuff on the P30A as it appears much looser than the 23's. I would assume it wouldn't stay folded up as well. Not sure I like it as much with loose cuff as I think it looks a bit sloppy. I wondered why the P30-DS they released earlier weren't listed as P30A-DS since they have the additional pockets but I guess there's my answer.

    If anyone is curious, new cargo's and tee. Material: Stretch moleskin cotton (98% cotton/2% elastane) The material is very soft and cozy. The elastane gives a nice amount of stretch to them as well. They've released different trousers in the same fabric a few years back and some folks I spoke with that had them said they do tend to fade a bit. From what I've read, some moleskin fabric is woven tightly enough to provide wind resistance. I have not been able to test if this is the case for these as the weather has been too hot to wear them often. Fit: I went with my typical SISP pant size 48 and the fit is perfect (normal pant size 32-33). Nice loose top block with a good taper to the hem. Gusset crotch allows for freedom of movement in addition to stretch fabric. Features: Two side hand pockets, two rear pockets and two slanted cargo pockets. One of the cargo pockets has side access via zip while the other has a separate compartment with zip closure. The pocket flaps close via snap buttons. The bottom, rear corner of the one cargo pocket while the other side’s bottom portion is completely detached which causes them to flair out some. The hand pockets have a flap sewn in facing the opposite direction of the pockets to "catch" items if they fall out while sitting. This is a nice feature that some other SISP pants I own have too. No SISP shadow badge on these, only SI branding above the rear pocket and CXADO tag on the interior. As for the shirt, material and graphics are nice but at $200 RRP I would say definitely not worth the retail price. It's also kinda thin. I'm typically a Medium in tops but sized up to a Large on the tee. If anyone doesn't want to wait for sales, Dope Factory had the best prices I found for the new items. I purchased the tee and cargo's for ~$425 shipped through them (I'm in that US so VAT was removed). I've purchased a few things in past from them and had very good experiences. I received this package in 3 business days Italy>USA. Code: 15XFORYOU takes an additional 15% off. If anyone has any questions, feel free to hmu.

    Ah nice, I’ll be in Europe in a few weeks and was planning at stopping at a SI store. Hopefully they have the new stuff stocked.

    I wouldn’t think so bc they don’t have anything online yet.
