Acronym.

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the response. I did get the new Melange Grey one. and I am guessing that they did just copy and paste the features from one of the old SS-J2 Specs.I contacted them about getting one installed since technically it can have one. Still haven't gotten a response from them yet. Scamster Im still trying to get the acronym lingo.

Heres the empty spot for the Cable tape.

I was wondering If my acronym jacket can handle day to day use, or should I just wear this for certain occasions.

Use it, abuse it. That schoeller material is tough, built for mountaineering use.

Was going to sell my GT-J8 in M to Daniel but looks like he disappeared on me. Any takers on a classic ACR piece?

Can any 3A-9TS owners share their experience on adding attachments to it?

It's a bit of a nitpick, but I'm worried about how it might not be as functional as imagined (Specially with the lack of a flap or such to keep it in place).

Only ever used a 3A-MP2TS zip pouch with it but it's fine. It's really no difference, if the points are secure they're secure.

Aw man! came across some old OCP-KA1 images again.

That shirt was so sick, best they've done in all those years in my opinion. Simple but right on the money!

With a re-issue i would instantly buy all available colors times 2 (black, white and grey please!)

And those graphics of the Twin Tubular knitted stuff (TT-LA1/2 TT-KA1/2) can be recycled any time!

Those were also great looking back on it.

damn... forgot there was a separate acronym thread...

Anyone use the acronym 3A-1 messenger bag? How do you like it? I found one at a decent price, but never seen the thing in person... I like that the strap is extendable which I think makes it much more usable. If you have any pics of it and the interior, that would be great too. Thanks in advance.

I have 2 versions of the 3A-1, both are being used for daily use.

Best non-laptop bag there is for me! (although i still put my 15inch mbp in it usually). Since I have my 3A-1 my 3A-5TS is just sitting in the corner never being used.

I'll post some detailed pictures for you up in a minute. (I only have limonta versions by the way)

Awesome... thanks so much for the pics! I don't know why acronym and the other resellers never post pics of the inside and zipper opening. It looks like a very user friendly bag. I may have to pick it up - primarily for use to carry my camera around, but also some documents, etc.

since it fits a 15" mbp, I'm guessing that A4 sized docs aren't a problem. Thanks again!

ps - STF is up with sufu today - everything is so damn slow...

someone faced with the problem of burnout (fading) of the material in the sun! how to protect your material? method of restoring color?

On the limonta you mean? that's how the fabric behaves.

Not much you can do about it except for keeping it out of strong sun for long times and make sure is discolors evenly haha.

yes the limonta fabric was used on your 3A-1 probably. as cloud said, fading is a property of that material. just let it age naturally, i think it can look kind of cool when weathered.

Hi, New on here. Not usually a message board kinda dude but, could any of you knowledgeable peeps give me a rough estimate of resale value for an immaculate condition GT-J4L?

I have one which gets little use & thinking of moving it on.

Thanks!

with your words a little that you can understand! i would have looked at your photos of this stuff! take a picture and attach them to this topic! will assume that the price will be 300 to 500 euros!

Thanks for the help man. I didnt want to post a bunch of pics as most people know exactly what that jacket looks like.

Also, being first post & this not being the supermarket, I thought that'd be a lame thing to do.

Three questions for the knowledgeable people in here.

1. Best place for me to source a F/W 0809 s-j1a and a FW11 gt-j5a in XL would be.

2. Price range what should i expect to pay (is there even any point in hoping to find DS ones still?)

3. Is it wise to trust the measurements given for these items on say firmaments site + acronym's own?

Thank you for your time.

1. Didn't see any on the typical guilty parties sites, you can run through the ACR stocklists tho; otherwise YJP!, eBay, SuFu.

2. DS, not too likely and depending on what venue; $900~$1200. There were a couple BNWT GT-J5As recently (~3/4mo) on YJP! that ended up at 100,000y.

3. Yes. Firmament just uses the listed ACR measurements IIRC.
