    I usually avoid wearing acr to work as I’m a metalsmith, but got some nicely worn in p24s and have been enjoying some design time as of late bags a repro i made with x10 to see how the cotton duck wears, it’s very much a sleeper as it looks like a canvas military bag on the outside, full laminate on the inside. otherwise j47a-ws, ss-j2, p24-s tables by withers&grain

    Looking into this myself, €1338 + €45 for ups + ~€83 for adjusted HTS if I did the math on that right... so $1656?

    It’s interesting that the whole conversation is strictly about how water proof the jacket is, shouldn’t it be how breathable it is? The J36 is appealing because it’s cotton, something you can wear like a light weight denim biker jacket and the like. You’re not wearing it for the rainy days so much as the hot or muggy mist days. I didn’t end up copping because it seemed excessive when I got a J47WS last year that takes care of that need for light weight and breathabillity (thought you have to baby the shit out of it compared to the Stotz that you want to wear in and patina), but the Stotz seems so appealing for the right seasons. I imagine it fitting perfectly into a daily wear for cold morning comutes before the suns warmed up the city and the windy walks home when the sun has set because you’ve gone late at the office. Maybe that’s just me, but it’s supposed to be 76°F today, but it was 50° on my walk to work with a 10% chance of rain. My question is does it not have the little elastic cord loops for attaching a base layer? I had thought that’s how the sleeve hitch is used.

    Do American buyers have any concensus on the vat that would be paid state side now? Forgive me if I missed this in a previous post. Also is the thought that both factories are producing products, what’s the delineation? Considering all the defects noted in last years releases KTI might help qc standards, just a thought...

    I've been really happy with mine, I have been eyeing a J47 variant for a few years and 2018 was the first I could make that happen and I'm generally pretty Impressed with it, there's nothing that really feels missing, it's a complete package. I think the fit is very much a blazer cut, especially if you wear the sling on the outside it's apparent how structured it is. This hasn't been my experience, admittedly 6'4" 185lb wearing a size L, but I have been wearing the 47TS-GT all winter with the J74-PX or the J72-AK and sometime both at the same time and they fit comfortably with a good range of motion. When wearing both liners in blizzards and deep winter scenarios it felt very snug, but not uncomfortably so. Definitely a loss of a pocket, but I've been using it with the MZ3 and it has allowed for a great deal of storage. I'll usually keep say a glove in each pocket of the J74, then on the jacket I can use the MZ3 or the napoleon pocket in a pocket for a phone, throw snacks/supplies/gear in the in the internal MZ3, a folding knife in one gravity pocket and a card holder in the other and then I still have the body of the napoleon pocket, the bag strap pocket and shoulder pocket to play with (and I keep the main pockets open for hands or groceries from the bodega) so theres still a LOT of pockets. Forgive the awkward fit picks, 2 are with both layers on the other is just the J47 and J72

    I guess I never considered this another pocket, the phone pocket in the cargo pocket is a sewn pocket made of a separately cut piece of fabric, but looking through other specs I realize it's always been counted like that, I just don't know I would count it the same. Thanks for clearing that up though, can't say I wasn't hoping there was some secret way to slide knee pads into the reinforced knee or something

    The P24A is listed as having 14 pockets, are pant legs pockets? Cause I count 12, every once in a while I check again and either I'm incapable of fathoming 13 and 14, or the copy is a joke that flew over my head. If there are a pair of multidimensional voids I'm missing please enlighten me
