    Encapsulated Nylon better than DS? Which model, in particular, did you like compared to DS? Was it because of the wide-cut or is there something about the fabric that lends it to being so comfortable in tropic environments? Also, does that mean jackets in Encapsulated Nylon are just as good? I can imagine it being better than GTX. Maybe J33-E is actually the best jacket for sale if not for it's saggy cut.

    Why doesn't E just make pants that let us adjust how wide we want the hems to be? Like the Jacket cuff tape adjustment. And no I'm not talking about the ribbon shoelace hem on the p34, I'm not wasting my time with that when velcro holds up much better. Arcteryx, Crye, and literally every other combat pant clone has the velcro tape adjustment. EDIT: cowboy pants don't need tight hems

    If we all typed like chefs I would say the J28-WS is FUCKING RAW. But then it would be full of low-effort one-liners each trying to outdo the last -- fucking childish. You know that unsaid rule among cool kids in school about "act like you don't care and you'll seem cool"? What do you think ACR appeals more to, the cool kids or the math geek? Being a fan of William Gibson's Neuromancer that should answer itself, shouldn't it? I love the detailed reviews here. Keep them coming and never stop. One day I'll get my jacket and I'll make a review here myself. Thanks for telling us what ACR means to you. Do you think Errolson would approve? I'm not his biggest fan but I'm sure he'd take that as an insult. As would many here who take this seriously as a hobby. Some people have to write a lot of papers for their career, some don't (including chefs). Antagonizing them for writing in a way they're comfortable in is selfish and divisive. If you can't read, don't read. Or learn how to speedread, as any grad student would know it's an invaluable tool whether you're in school or not. Clothing and consumer technology are not unrelated. Especially when ACR has a section dedicated to "Fabric Technology" on every piece. New features and pocket arrays touch the same bases as ergonomics for phones which is impossible to gauge without retail stores where you can try them on. TL,DR: high function and high prices require detailed reviews, if you don't take it seriously don't force others to do the same.

    Thank you for the review. Happy to see you enjoy this grail piece instead of listing it for sale at 2x. You would think tho that for a Windstopper jacket they would use a more rigid collar system (as the J1A 2.2 collar already has problems with holding upright after frequent use according to some people here). Anyone know who designed the J28? The center chest pocket cluster is a lot more traditional in form (almost like a field jacket). Would not be surprised if it was Michaela since she also did the more conservative P10. speedreading is a pretty powerful tech too

    I guess I should clarify that because I'm in California, jackets aren't so high on my priority list but I'm still passively seeking the right jacket because I'm a fan of the design and functionality. It's also why I'm not so fond of GT as a material. ACR is a niche and shares budgets with my photography, mid-fi audio, firearm, airsoft, and cycling hobbies like everyone else. A $2000 jacket is hard to justify over a new headphone, IEM, and lens combined. Especially in Cali. I understand when you guys try to pin me, be it that I don't own "real ACR" or that I'm too broke because I'm known for criticising ACR's pricing and stocking behavior post-ACG. I know you guys have invested a lot into your hobby thus feel attacked when I say some things, but realize that I'm not directing these criticisms at you personally. I've laid out everything I believe in a few months back so I know better now to not to repeat myself. That said, I'm still keeping tabs on the ACR scene and asking questions to learn. If I happen to say a few things along the way that don't make you feel good about your purchases, I apologize. In cases when I'm wrong, I'll happily admit it because it means I've learned something. Maybe there'll come a day when I come to terms with ACR as a hype brand and not a functional one. I hope I'm wrong.

    I can afford to buy a new Toyota Tacoma pickup but I don't buy it because I don't need it. I don't buy new ACR because I don't need it either. If I like a design at the right price I'll buy it. I've bought the CP4 and I'll happily wait for the opportunity to buy a jacket too. "Can't afford price hikes? You're a broke hater!" I've laid out all the reasons why I've chosen not to buy new releases before and being poor isn't one of them. Keep trying though.
