    Probably it's a way to differentiate the brand from others using similiar/same material from schoeller? Though ppl love acr will still buy them, but for new users they may compare with brands with less markups. Using customized fabrics so it's harder to make comparison idk.

    J28-WS First Impression Got the J28-WS a few days ago and I want to share my thoughts about it. Hope it will help people figure out whether is it worth the $3K resell price. First I would like to start from the difference between the older GT version and the WS version. Convertible collar In my opinion, the older GT version collar design, along with J28Ks and J28-E are aesthetically better than the new convertible collar on J28-WS. The 3D collar in previous ACR jackets, especially the one J28 used can provide better structural stiffness, which gives better support to magnet velcro. Storm Hat The newly designed removable storm hat replaced the original storm hoom which can be stored in the outer side of the 3D collar. This new hat/hood hybrid design is believed to be the one from J1E-GT experimental jacket. I personally like this new design despite I wasn't a big fan of bucket hats. With the characteristic of PA windstopper material, this hat is ultralight yet durable. The hat is taped so we can expect better water resistancy. It also can be worn as a normal bucket hat if you pack the hood parts inside. RainDrop [aka thigh shield / walking accelerator/ Dik cover] I believe this is the first length adjustable design in an acronym jacket. As you can see in the look book, these two pieces of single layer WS fabric are folded and stored in the inner side of lower hand pockets. Functionally, it’s a good design and should be used on more jackets in the future. However I’m not a fan of how it looks especially when you are wearing wide pants with large detached pockets like P30, P10A and P31A. Next I would like to share some of my short term experiences of this jacket. Ultra lightweight, an ideal everyday outer shell with balanced water resistancy and comfort. Beautifully designed and well functional triple front pockets can be accessed easily with single hand on driving. No need to open trapped WR zipper pockets under your seatbelts (if you have tried that on recent J1As you know what i’m talking about, pure pain) Storm hat introduces more variability in head protection under different weathers. Can be easily packed & stored in a front pocket. It’s also taped, I’m expecting to use it with other GT jackets. The short zipper added as part of the convertible collar is very likely to interfere with the main zipper, basically they block each other. It happens almost every time I wear this jacket. I have to pay extra attention to this problem all the time, which should be found and fixed in the testing progress. Pics attached below explain the problem. RainDrop curtains are hard to fold back to the inner pocket without a flat surface. Your ass is completely out of protection so better run fast in rainy day. An evenly wet pants brings no problem, but if only a wet butt… Attention: EXTRA FAT sleeves. I have only seen something similar on J79TS before. Still lack of expansion zip for the bottom hem. Would be great to have snap bottom near the wrist/chest part to wear in warmer area. Short summary, I only wore this jacket for a few days and did not regret the purchase. 8.5/10 satisfaction for this jacket so far. It’s a J28, one of the most popular models, and it’s made by WS. That makes it a must have for me, but it still comes with some issues like the zippes, and controversial looks with raindrop deployed. Some pics for reference: Fit with P30A, hat removed Storm hat- individual Raindrop-outer side Raindrop-inner side Raindrop-stored in inner pocket Zipper system-Interference issue

    Uniqol shortsleeves with airism fabric probably a better value choice in my opinion. A $400+ shirt maybe not a good choice for most people.

    Fakcronym making tommow comes today

    Actually I found their taobao webpage but it seems too good to be a fake. I have a GTKP on hand and I can barely tell the difference. One possibility is old man got back stabbed by chinese factory who sold the blueprint to repmaker and even use the same factory to make fake. Or this repseller is taking pics out of the real one to sell the fake which have 2.0 cut as all other previous fake J1As.

    One thing I wanna add is that AK version is much more friendly for glass guy like me. It's better ventilation makes less fog coming up on glasses, which is very important for winter use.

    J68WS has the weight of 444g, and 591g for J68PL. If assuming the overall construction and design does not change too much, that 147 grams of primaloft would give sufficient amount of insulation. I don't know much about insulations like professional ourdoor player so let me know if I'm wrong. Considering my personal experience on other primaloft insulation jacket, i can say that this insulation material could be very warm and light weight. So I would expect similuar peformance like j58WS. i've wear my other primaloft insulation undershell over longsleeve last winter in around 14 °F and I can have enough heat keeping inside. However considering the length of J68, as a rider jacket, I would suggest to wear a parka or longer shell to cover your waist part.

    The bi-color J1B looks great, so does the orange hood with black one. Will be a hard decision between those two colorways, or maybe my wallet will stop me first
