    I had a chance to check my trousers out fully I am not showing any abnormal wear after about 20 uses. Are you going to make a warranty claim with ACR?

    thanks for posting this. I have not noticed any of the issues you have mentioned but I will inspect my trousers and let you know my situation. I have worn my pair about a dozen times. always with the insulation inside. The bald patch on the knee is particularly concerning!

    I really like the look of that jacket but unfortunately I am too fat to wear it! I will leave it for the more svelte members of this forum. I do however welcome the J99-WS, J91-WS and the J1W-GTPL.

    Thanks for posting this video. There is a lot of useful information in it. I have the GT, DS and AD versions of these trousers and appreciate your comments on all of them.

    the J99 doesn't need a liner because it is very well insulated. I normally just wear a shirt under it. When its get really cold (I am in Canada) I will probably wear my J-78-PX under it and that should be plenty.

    I got my J99 a short time ago. Yes it fits big! I normally wear an XL but because of the specs, I ordered and L. It still fits quite large and I rhink I could have ordered an M. If you consider buying it go down 1 size or even 2. It is very warm . . the warmest ACR piece I own. It is well-designed with lots of pockets and I was glad to see it has a YKK zipper which is nice and smooth.I have similar ACR coat with the Ra******* zipper (I can never remember the full name) and it jams and sticks on a regular basis.

    I spilled some hamburger grease on my trousers a short time ago. I followed the washing instructions on the label and the stain was still there. The stain was tallow/beef fat only! So I washed them again in warm water with all other instructions as per the label. Still no luck. So applied a liberal does of "Shout" and then washed the trousers in warm rather than cold water. The stain was finally removed. There was no apparent harm to the garment, but perhaps some of the weather proofing was removed. (Some stated in an earlier thread that these E garments were good for 50 washes?) In any event, I broke some of the washing rules.(I like to live Life on the Edge!) and nothing bad happened. but maybe the laundry police will show up with a warrant.

    in my experience . . no! when I walk around the house in my E trousers . . .my wife says: "those trousers are so noisy . . you're annoying the dog!"

    I must agree with your comments as well as those of chris_n above. The P30A-E's are a nice fit, well made and generally the design and pocket layout is good. The encapsulated nylon material is noisy, thin (light shines right through it), it doesn't stretch at all unlike the DS, and it is "cold." I wore my pants for the first time this morning when walking my loyal Bull Terrier and my legs were cold. (I live in Canada and the temperature was below freezing.)The E material seems to wick the heat out of my legs much quicker than DS trousers (both pants uninsulated.) Another thing to consider is stain resistance. I stopped on my way home from work to grab a burger at a fast food place. While eating the burger, some beef fat squirted onto the leg of the pants. I eat my burgers plain so it was not a topping stain; only been grease (tallow.) I am still trying to wash the grease stain out of these pants using "Shout" "OxyClean" and the instructions on the washing tab. All-in-all I will stick with DS Products in the future!

    Thanks for posting! Was the NG4 1.0 as popular as the NG4 1.1? I thought the first version sorta flopped? I have the first versions somewhere and I never wear it. I looked on Grailed yesterday and there were around 14 flippers. Correction 19!
