Actually, more durable than I would have expected. 

From pavement. I did not stick the landing.

So two questions:

1. Does it still keep water out?

2. Does it still bead water on those areas that have been scuffed?

If you're concerned about long-term durability, keep in mind faux leather will crack and peel at some point. There are supposedly lotions that may help with this, but I've never tried it.

Cup of water, shake dry. I did not feel a leak on the inside. 

The scuff is on the elbow and above, so I can’t imagine being in the rain long enough to impact function. To me J63 is more of a casual leather replacement item than an all day raincoat.

ACRONYM x Nike Vapormax Moc
Color: Light Bone/Light Bone-Black
Style Code: AQ0996-001

I probably won't be able to wear these, simply because my feet are insanely wide (to the point where I need custom boots—everything else is too narrow), but I actually like them quite a lot.

I suspect we'll be seeing more "out there" stuff from Acronym this fall. They have to differentiate from the black-and-olive tech ninja thing all these other brands have moved in on. Hence the Shadow Project and ACG patterns, hence the exploration of camouflage. I could see white gore-tex making a comeback as well. They're trying to maintain tempo.

The problem though is that its a Vapormax, they are played out, no matter how much they tweak the design and do new colourways. Like the font on the heel though but there is still something a little bit naff about these.

Anyone have any problems with white creases appearing on the film part of their xpac? Like areas where the material is getting flexed or bent a lot?

This is typical of the foils and is the first onset of peeling/de-lamination. ACR calls it ‘patina’, while the folks who developed it would probably categorize it as ‘deterioration.’ See a few pages back around the time of the first foil 3A-3TS drop for images of accelerated degradation on a swatch. Might help you decide if you want to deal with it for much longer or sell.

Can I ask, how long have you been using the bag for? I've had mine since the last release and have been using it on a daily basis!

I've worn it twice. To be fair, it's extremely slight—just a single white crease on the inside, near the middle of the bag, just above the main zip. I can tell what's causing it; seems that, with anything in the two hanging pockets (which I use for my phone and wallet) the wait is distributed on the bag such that it sags in the middle, and creases right where the two pockets meet.

Here's a pic of the spot I'm talking about (not my bag though):

Perfect, thanks for this!

Did you pick up the olive x-pac 3a? Have you had anything similar happen?

No - I actually thought you were referring to the 3A-3TS, as I've heard that it has a similar issue where the foil starts peeling in the creases.

I'd think the issue would be the same on both bags, as the internal pockets are the same size. Maybe it depends on how much weight is being stashed in each pocket...

It's also possible I'm being way too picky. :S

No, I think you're right. The pockets are extremely flimsy when compared with the rest of the construction, so it doesn't surprise me at all.

I realize this is sort of nitpicking, but just in two days of wear that crease has grown considerably, simply because of how the bag hangs. My experience with dyneema tells me to be afraid. :S

Then again, if it's nothing then cool! The bag is great otherwise!

@junkie_dolphin

based on the design that point in the bag is going to be a stress point for the xpac material. all my foil bags have this.

before when i got my first one and i cared more i thought about how to remedy this. You can cut a full length thin piece of cardboard that goes along the entire length of the bag and used double sided tape to affix it to it and it wil support the material long term. 

or just say fuck it and let it be.

i vote the ladder.

Question is, will this lead to holes long-term? Or just the peeling of the film? The latter would be tolerable, though it would compromise the material's ability to resist water in that one area. Of course, it could always be patched with tenacious tape or something once it wears away...

One classic repair service bagjack offers is that heavy ass part replacement. So sometimes you would have a Frankenstein bag. Price varies as different materials and patch sizes but I do remember around 200 euro bill or so.
