    can anyone tell me the difference between p10-ds fw1516 and others versions? specifically comparing to ss20.

    I’m about to get the fw1516 but I wonder if it fits tapered

    old p10's had the snap button waist closure. newer models have the slotted button closure which is a huge improvement

    I wanna return something I bought at the mothersite via UPS but they want a contact person and phone number. Has anyone got info what I do need to state?

    (sorry that I need to ask, I am sure we had this before but I just can’t find the post..)

    Not sure who the contact person might be, but the phone number is +420608434086. Photo attached was the return label address for the j63a auxzip issue

    any new experience with the glasses? Prescription was possible?

    best regards 

    prescription is possible on any glasses/frames, unless acronym superglued the lenses onto the frames which is highly unlikely. any optician would be able to pop the lens out and install your prescribed lenses in. however, the problem is you wouldn't be able to get your prescription onto the colour tinted lenses so it would just be clear.

    Hey guys, quick question. Mothersite TOS states foreign country returns are done via UPS, I'm trying to make the shipping label and they are asking for Name & Contact + phone number.. what do? I put Acronym Dynamics S.R.O. for the name but what about contact & phone number?

    +42 725700067 found this number on my invoice under SHIPPER/EXPORTER

    Can’t seem to find more info on Canada-EFTA for MIE products regarding duties and customs. 

    Any fellow Canucks can help me out? 


    try looking up CETA, when your package arrives in Canada, UPS will notify you about HST 13% in Ontario and like a $10 handling fee.

    Whys that

    The J36-S is priced around the same as the MIC 2.2 J1A-GT, normally GT jackets are priced higher substantially over Stotz assuming both jackets are made in EU. If both these jackets were MIC, the price of the J36-S wouldn't be anywhere close to the price of the 2.2 J1A-GT. This is just my assumption as I cannot confirm if the J36 is MIC or not

  8. it’s pretty safe to assume the recent jackets are still made in EU judging by the prices. if they are made in China, expect to pay $3000 for a stotz jacket.

    According to the info on mothersite:

    J36-S: Made in Switzerland

    P10A-E: Made in USA

    P32-DS and P32-S: Made in Switzerland

    Interesting there're no manufacturing location info for J41/J76


    Those are referring to the "Fabric Technology" and where the Fabric is made and not where the actual Garment is made.

    They dont look like p10a if that is any consolation....but it does look like they will ramp up production in china....which doesnt help your situation at all. 

    It really sucks, I really wish they would mention where the garment is made, and not just the fabric specifications.

    KTC factory has huge history and produce well-made garments.

    It's not ordinary China factory.

    That is not my main concern, I have nothing against anything made in China. The main problem is that I have to pay around 30% more for duties if items are made in China vs tax-free for made in EU garments.

    Anyone know where's the material tag of the J1A-GT Gen 2.2? I checked all pockets, no sign of the material tag. I wanna see where its made in.....so weird<_<


    it's inside at the very top of the hand pockets.

    $428 duties on the J1A in the US is a big oof. My last acrnm purchase wasn't even close to that much tax. Has anyone ever had luck getting an adjustment on that with UPS? 6201.99.8030 should still work right? GT is man-made fiber and it'd fall under 'anorak, windbreaker, and similar articles', but would I have to prove that?

    As for the jacket itself, I like the folded down collar way more than I thought I would, and the look with the hood attached less than I thought I would. With the hood on I think I prefer the old look. The logo tape seems a bit far back, but I'm also used to vertical logo tape. All the details I have checked so far (hardware, seam tape, zipper pulls etc.,) have seemed equivalent or purposefully different (shiny vs not shiny zips) from my J28. Though I do think the sling is a bit stiffer and more coarse than that of the J28 (but I'm not sure how much wear has to do with that). I've noticed that the hand pockets have like a dart (??) to provide more fabric/space on the inside, which is cool. I don't know if old models had that or not but the J28 doesn't for sure.


    I could keep going, but the rest of my opinions really only have to do with comparing it to the only other acronym jacket I have so I'll leave that to be continued later.

    Any requests for detail pics?

    Does the face fabric feel any different compared to other GT jackets you handled with? Judging from the product photos (taken down on mothersite now), it looked more like a stotz jacket in my eyes. or maybe its just me.

    how bad was the charge? i was cool with the price on it thinking I was going to get away with no duties like my last purchase direct from acrnm.com.

    I don't know the exact amount but the UPS rep said it's over $600CAD. meaning full duties + provincial tax will be applied if the garment is made in China and not EU.

  15. Just got off the phone with UPS because i was wondering why there was a ridiculous duty charge on my J1A-GT coming into Canada. I mentioned to the rep that the garment should be made and shipped from EU and the duties should be significantly less. He then tells me the package states that the garments are MADE IN CHINA and not EU. I have emailed Acronym to confirm if this is true. Will update here.

    well you first have to get fucked by wasting 20 minutes trying to find where to do this because of dark UI patterns. youll need to google how to do this.


    new j1a is amazing. was p30a-ds also for sale? looks like they took it off the site. 

    just the j1a dropped, P30a-ds is probably dropping along with SS19

    • This j1a 2.2 recycles the hood/snaps from models like j16, j53, etc.
    • Off-center zipper
    • No escapezipǽ
    • Intricate storm flap with inner compartment reminiscent of the 3-j4ts
    • Not to mention the Kostas Seremetisǽ to ship with each jacket (presumably)

    Does anyone know if repairs/[email protected] ships out replacement Forcelock tape? I recently acquired a jacket that's missing the tape.

    Unfortunately not. Asked a couple of months ago as well. Had the same issue 

    Not sure about Forelock, but they sent me a replacement logo tape when i found out my j28 didnt come with one.
