hm will wait for the re-release of the J72-DS black.

Don’t hold your breath bro. It was two years between O.G. P10 drops. And they’re foundation pieces.

Interesting observation from the Hotoveli dropbox: J63A-FO is apparently a liner piece. It has the collar zip on the outside as well as the snaps on the cuffs

Yep, also the J74-PX - has the aux snaps on the hood as well - looking forward to seeing that with a shell over it

Why are the arms soooo long on J72-ak?  Ian is really tall and they almost cover his thumbs. Most shells only go to his wrists.  Also, whats with those snaps on the sleeves?

Those snaps allow you to connect the J72 to a shell. The zipper on the back of the collar also zips into the collar of a shell and the two pieces act as one.

The PX fabric is Polartec Alpha. 

This sounds about right, especially when you look at the honeycomb shadows on the fabric in the product shots (not the fabric close-up, but the rest).

I realize we're well past the point where it even means anything to say something like this, but it's insane that anyone is charging that much for a Polartec Alpha jacket. Alpha is (last I checked) notorious for its poor durability—which is one of the reasons we're seeing Arc'teryx switch to Octa on all the jackets that used to use Alpha. Errolson is always tweeting about how we need a "total change in mentality" regarding the way we consume clothing, that we should reject "fast fashion," and so on... but my dude, you're selling a jacket that will not last very long.

It seems we're far from the days of "Lightest, Fastest, Deafest, Baddest..." I shudder to think how heavy the J47TS-GT is going to be.

I hear you. And the durability of my silver foil XPAC and laminate 5TS have also made me question statements like these.

If you are wondering about the waterproof-ness of the 6TS X Pac just cycled 7 miles in the pissing rain and everything is dry inside. The actual X Pac dries pretty fast as well, was suprised at that.

Looks like a new zipper system incompatible with older shells(?) :-/

You're not really missing much armor. It's more of a minor convenience. And the zipper system has been available on shells for a few years now

Yeah lol agreed ...the irony is, despite the moaning, I never bother zipping the 58 into any of my compatible shells due to extreme laziness...but it’s nice to know it’s possible! That 63A one looks different though and it would have been nice if they had kept the same system. I like to think that everything is neatly integrated and backwards compatible :D
