  1. Re: P24A-E fit, I believe it feels slimmer because the material makes the seat/thigh fabric drape down the back of the pant, whereas on the DS version it drapes down the outside of the thighs. Not sure if this is due to a change in how it's cut or the material. The fabric itself seems stiffer than DS so you'd think it'd make the pants look looser. I'm probably not wording this well but hopefully it makes sense. P24A-E waist is smaller than my P24A-DS, but the latter were prob stretched out. 

    I happen to like this version much more than P24A-DS. Silhouette works for me, and I prefer the non-reinforced hem despite not planning on using the cinch. As thatslapz said, the cargos are more functional and easier to zip one handed. Didn't like E on p10 and p30a, it suits looser pants much better because they don't need stretch and benefit from more structure. 

  2. WTS: 

    9/10 P30A-DS 1.0 Small (had everyone's favorite pocket tear, repaired by acronym), full pack $850 SOLD

    9/10 S24-DS-B (tag peeled off but came off clean, no residue) Black Small full pack $250

    9.5/10 S24-DS-A Alpha Green Small full pack $250

    BOTH S24 FOR 450

    9.5/10 3A-MP2TS White (white WP zip), Black (black reverse coil zip), and Olive (olive reverse coil zip) full pack $100 each or $250 for all three

  3. Late to the discussion about the P30A-DS seam ripping issue. IIRC when I handled the P30A-E there was some new reinforcement on the seam that connects the front and back pockets. Might point to Acr trying to prevent the issue.

    Maybe someone who bought a pair can generously provide a picture.

    Yeah... I've got a J83-WS, and while the GTX Pro is obvious, I wouldn't have known it had anything to do with infinium until this discussion :?

    it's not obvious that the shell is Infinium?

    It wasn't very straightforward when Gore rebranded WS as Infinium and had the film out stuff included under that umbrella. They might have started with FO labeled as Infinium and then expanded to include WS idr exactly. Yeah all the PB and FO products are considered to be "Infinium tech" even though you get persistent beading whereas WS isn't WP. Whatever the the face is laminated to gives it a different feel/look as well (ex: J62/63-PB, J63A-FO vs. J46-FO, J67-FO).



    I think this is correct across the board, but I haven't handled all the variants of these fabrics that Acr uses:

    FO/PB = membrane is the face fabric (Shakedry)

    WS = membrane is the backer (and may or may not include a stitched third layer next-to-skin like J29-WS, J68-WS) 

    GT = 2.5L or 3L Gore-Tex where shell, membrane, and backer are all laminated together (PL is kind of an exception here but that might be getting too technical)
