@Inkinsurgent I remember a while ago when gore softshell was implemented then disappeared, hopefully this tech gets some traction. It seems rather weird to release a high-loft technology during spring/summer though.

Maybe it's a case of prototyping in advance for the colder seasons. They know Acronym buyers will be sweating away in jackets all year round so won't be deterred to purchase regardless of temperature B)

I think the fleece is what was needed to give the proper heft to what seems to be a homage to a couple of classic leather jackets. 

 

Seems like the backing also softens the hard creases seen on the unlined SHAKEDRY™ bike jackets, especially on the hood and sleeves, adding to the illusion.

 

Question for those who have seen the product. Pick a color. Black? Grey? Green?

I've felt shackdry and it's very soft and not harsh at all

This looks more like active shell inner laminate used over a cotton fleece

if i'm not mistaken shakedry is, irreverently speaking, essentially reversed paclite.

the jackets are ridiculously soft, both in and out. you'll barely feel that you're wearing anything. also, not sure if it's been mentioned already but the fabric doesn't really make any noise at all.

That's an interesting point. For all of the #techninja, they'll hear you coming a mile away in your gtx.

They've been talking about combining the face/membrane/backer into a single layer for a while now. Only a matter of time until it's really a single integrated layer.

 I wore the J-61WS today, perfect for 55 degrees wind and light rain. I saw the other acronym pieces, and the J61WS stood out to me the most ^_^ because it is very lightweight , pack able, and big pockets ( i can fit a novel book inside)

It is so practical, I can see myself retiring all my other parkas and opt for layering , then just throw the J61WS on chilly nights

I just received my J-61 WS today and I agree with the consensus.  This is a perfect every day jacket for the spring.  Also as I have broad shoulders sizing up to XL was the way to go even though L would have been fine everywhere else. 

I am glad that I held off on the J-25 WS.  The flowing shape and excellent pocket placement / design of the J61 is more evident when trying it on then in pictures.   Thus the hype is lower then other jackets from SS17.

Thought I'd share a quick photo as I always appreciate seeing others post in the run up to thinking about copping a piece... I had to pay £220 customs charge, but still happy.

Not sure what peoples criticisms were, regarding the quality?

The only other piece I own is the J1A-GT, so the breathable mesh top pocket design was a nice surprise for me on this (as I don't know the ins and outs of every piece).

I've been after the S-J1A for that assymetrical look for a while now, but this blew that out the water for me, if we're talking simply aesthetics.

As far as I know taobao version j1a-gt is already came with full set,which means 'specshit',ziplock bag and acrnm paper tag.

Also,there is already ss-j16 rip off in taobao too. They will argue that they inspired from U.S bdu anyway lol.

So this person is looking for a "high quality scan' so they can print out spec sheets to accompany their counterfeit goods? How about we just scan the sheets, photoshop something obvious, and send it over. That way when they print them out all the spec sheets will have an obvious tell that the community can use to call out fakes.

I'm not sure there is a J17, J36, or J28K replica is there? Did a bit of digging on Taobao and could only find a J1A-GT, J43-GT, and J32-GT (admittedly I chucked "acronym" in the search bar).

Either that or the guy just needs the spec sheets for his collection which wasn't an unreasonable ask up until about 6 months ago!

It's perfect, I know my measurements well as I don't like baggy jackets, but I also need to have a good fit for cycling and I certainly wouldn't compromise mobility to wear any item of clothing. I don't intend to wear layers under this piece it as it was bought as a light spring/summer/autumn jacket. I also like to do the wrist straps up so there's no hang, and pull the hem cords in so that the jacket parts at the bottom.

Hi guys. I'm new to this forum. Anyone has any thoughts on the J36-GT? Would it be worth to trade it for a J1TS-S. Thanks in advance.

If you have the J36, keep it.

Didn't realize it had this. I can see it now looking at shop pics. It's something I thought the J1A-GT should have had but I imagine Gore doesn't like mixing of their materials and straight up doesn't allow mixing with non Gore materials. The extra cuff tightening and the riding up from the bag alters the way it looks, I reckon it does fit.

I'm turning this into a 'what I thought of this seasons drop'. I bought a J61 so I'm inclined to say it's the highlight but the J47R is da real MVP. The innovation in the construction is unlike anything else.

Functionally, I wish the J61's zip didn't catch on the flap. I wonder what the reasoning is behind only having one parka style button up at the neck because I think it needs another one in the chest area to make it less cape-like in the wind. I have wanted a jacket in that kind of silhouette for ages and was waiting to catch a Veilance monitor in the sales, I'm very happy with my purchase. When Shadow Project or Nike have done parkas there's less hype. I think the light material and packable feature has just pushed it over the edge into archetype-shifting territory.

This tech is crazy. Now I can't be super condescending when people ask if a shell is good for cold ass weather.
