    Thats not what i meant, they require a contact and phone number from the recipient. I'll email acrnm about it, but if anyone knows anything, please let me know. Returning a P30A-DS, btw.

    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..)

    How do y'all feel about the new S/S collection? For me most pieces are a bit too "loud"(bright colors etc), but that's really a matter of personal taste after all. At least theres a new iteration of the beloved tunic shirt and the knitwear stuff is quite solid as well.

    Curious if that means that we will see a new J1 release (or restock) in the near future.

    Talking about sizing, did anyone size up on the J1A-GT 2.2? How do people that went TTS feel about layering, i.e. with the J58?

    On the first glance, obviously not. But we’re talking about something that should last years and years. Also, some “minor” issue can grow into something more serious, holes can get bigger, etc. etc. - maybe this is still better than buying an entirely new one. of course it is an interesting discussion, especially with this brand and customer base. I mean, a lot of people do possibly own a larger acrnm collection at this point. No offense at all, but it is maybe not so sustainable to own multiple gt pro jackets that got shipped all around the globe. On the other hand, most pieces are excellent second hand products.

    Yeah i know, upscaling seems to be hard for the brand, but you have to support your customer base, and basically denying service on products with the current pricing is just unacceptable. Especially if you praise sustainability as E is doing it right now with the so called "rep-iteration". RE J58 Cinch: this is something a tailor can fix if it bothers you, of course you have to get rid of the original hem and replace it though. Tried it, works wonders. I see most people won't do it because it can affect resell-value.

    How do you wash your -PB jackets? Any differences to a normal gore tex jacket? It seems not regarding to the washing Tag but I’ll better double check

    Any thoughts on the shakedry hood on the J36-S or the new J27-GT? Is it comfortable and does it hold up well against rain?

    You guys just saved me a lot of money. Thanks. Was really looking into buying one but this sounds quite bad. Had the J65-AJ and returned it as well, same thing about the fabric (scratchy), also the cut was just not for me, especially the arms looked kinda strange, not anything like on the product pics.

    Just started wearing my J63-PB recently, so i can't say much about its durability yet. What i CAN say though is that it doesn't hold up as a stand-alone winter jacket as its simply not warm enough. If you want to wear this in winter, you def. have to add a few layers as it just hast some kind of fleece-lining inside and not much more. That said, i still really love the jacket and the material it's made of!

    If it did, they deactivated it now. I can apply the discount but got the original price again when trying to checkout.

    Yeah its kind of a sick Jacket, i also love the design of the hood a lot, all in all the pockets in combination with the TS does make it look very aggressive/military looking. I agree with you that i would probably not wear it in public because of this reason. For me, it feels more like a successor of J28 rather than J1A but thats just my opinion. For me, the highlight of this drop for me is probably the J61-GTV. The GTV just looks so luxe, and the olive zipper and interops details really add something to it. Not sure if an A-Frame Parka is something for me because of it being so wide, also the price is like the highest of the collection but where not here to discuss this again i guess. Curious to see fitpics of P33 because i'm not sure how to feel about this one yet. I also still hope there will be a release of the inverted xpac 3a-1 in the near future as this one is growing on me a lot!

    FW2018 dropped mid-October (17th-ish). Let’s see. Really excited to see the pieces either way though.

    Better tell that the guy who is trying to sell his P30A for 150% retail on Facebook lol

    You can definitely see this on grailed or other buy/selling groups on the internet. With retail that high, people seem to not even get back what they paid for originally (i.e. some SS19 jackets like J76-GT).

    J1A and P30A just restocked. Am I the only one getting the impression that this is very likely to happen frequently? Let’s see what this does to the resell market.

    Mine came in yesterday, hadn't had the chance to measure it yet - the package says 140cm which i think could be quite accurate. I'm a quite slim guy so it is a bit long but i still like it. I now ordered some acronym-esque plastic clips (as seen on the 3A-1 or 3A-3TS QLQR System) to hold the excess. (Edit: i just measured it and it is in fact 140cm long) Quick Review: The belt itself is pretty nice. Reduced, minimal, and very slim - as opposed to some cobra belts which are really thick and heavy. The d-ring "lock" works buttery smooth and the quick release strap is a nice addition to it. I ordered the black/olive colorway without knowing what it really is. The color is nice, one side of the belt is black/olive, the backside black - which results in kind of a bicolor look because of the excess length which is almost 50% of my waist.

    To anyone who got the 3A-WB2 (which i ordered this morning.. :)): 154cm seems kinda long, how do you deal with length? looking at the product pics on mothersite (which are of course highly staged i guess) the thing looks pretty okay, lengthwise, but i can't imagine it looks like this in RL

    Wearing my 3a-3ts (x-pac) almost daily for quite a while now. I think it's an awesome bag which could maybe have some more "features" (compared to e.g. bagjack sniper bag, etc.) but the overall size, material and design is perfect for me. So far so good - but one thing that's bugging me is the prominent crease it makes above the main zipper (see picture), which is no real way around. Is it just me or are other people here having the same "issue"? Does the 3a-1 this as well? Any way to fix that? Or is it not a bug and more like kind of a feature?
