    Thanks so much for sharing, have been truly curious for some time! Funny so different from what my brain would have landed on for a modular system, but cool that they go the extra mile I suppose?

    As @wexler mentioned does the zip length match? I've always assumed they used one zip size considering the NGs are OS so I don't see a point in producing jackets with various zip lengths you just find what the largest size that fits the construction of an S and use that throughout from an economy of scale perspective that's all I could imagine (though with the ACG jackets I remember my ex putting my size L liner into a womens M shell and that may have been 20mm off, but I expect that's because A.Nike and B.Womens)

    Thank you for the kind words! Going to make some tweaks to get it to function a bit smoother, but with a month of use it's holding up well and can easily manage 24 beers, a few kilos of rice, and some snacks. Will update with more! I shamelessly made a repro/alt 3A-2(TS) this weekend, nothing too special and not a lot of thought on my part, but sight unseen I tried to roughly duplicate the bag. This iteration instead has a TS inner belt as opposed to the pocket (didn't know the size or functionality of the pocket so I figured something modular would be easy and work well with keys, pens, knives and whatever else) ~sorry for my complete inability to do clean binding around the bends, I just don't have the skill nor the right sewing machine setup.

    I was looking at them too, the weaves and zips are a nice touch, can't tell if it's something they were messing with or something Ziv Lee may have done?

    Are we expecting another release in the next week or two with additional jacket/baselayers/pants? I really want to love some of the new pieces like the J29-PX, but I completely agree with the above, if it were a Schoeller DS with a polar lining I think it would hit the marks, but looking like a liner takes away from the the blazer construction especially with the thread tension on PX. It's a great late 80's blazer vibe and I'm into it, but I think I'm just waiting for the LA6B-AD...

    Thanks to all for the leads, I'm hoping tri-point is feeling nice and wants to pass some my way... definitely seems like getting a nice copy is gonna be tough since I'm not gonna have Güth & Wolf mill some 3/8" nylon ribbon and there is nothing like the elastic I've seen on the market, such is life? Also stoked on a new grocery tote I made and will post up soon, full Güth & Wolf and x42~ https://www.armygalanterie.cz Also another nice supply source when it comes to Güth & Wolf webbing

    Does anyone know of a source for the 20mm ladder locks used on the jacket slings? For that matter any leads on where to source a similar 3/4" or 20mm elastic webbing and the Olive Grosgrain that'd be mint. Trying to make a decent replica since Acr is evil and doesn't include a jacket sling with the AK models, but they do with the KM???

    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?
