Which brings me to the most recent 47TS-GT: aux zip and TS at the horizontal mid pocket and the interior mezzanine pocket. I know there has to be a fit allowance for the insulator, right?

Agreed that the 47 iteration is the best version. In its minimalist state, the pocket array and zipper placement is perfectly balanced. I saved the measurements from when I bought my 47R, and they are exactly the same as the 47TS so I don't think they changed the fit block. Having said that, I always felt like my 58 fit pretty well under my 47 because its a bit roomier than other jackets to begin with.

Was able to check out several of the pieces in person today; a few of my brief impressions

J74: I only saw this in the white, which looked amazing -- this is the one piece I actually regret missing out on this season. The fabric is essentially translucent, which I didn't quite realize from the product photos, and the way it behaves in the light in the real world is really appealing. The cut is also quite nice, and I like the black contrast details on the white jacket.

Now I may reget that I bought black. I was just afraid that the white looks in person not as good as on the pics. But I will wait how the black J74 will look in real and decide afterwards. 
Many Thx for sharing your impressions!

And I share your view on the P23A-S. I made the same observation.

@yankees19032002 the ng9 holds ok with the collar up? Is it in the construction or is there some kind of material that would prevent it from being floppy in the future?

I got black as well. I decided on black because, if I'm going for all black, the tonality and textural difference add a bit more variety. I'm a big fan of PB/FO, MP, and K. I'm really interested on who manufactures the face fabric because it still appears like pertex quantum. It would also make sense with the breathability of alpha insulation to have a really breathable face and liner.

I hope this can replace my Arc'Teryx Atom LT in most situations. Dead bird logo is too Alpha for me. @branespload

Not trying to state the obvious but I assumed the PX did stand for Pertex?

Sounds good. I am looking forward to try the jacket and I like it very much that they are going new ways in regards of tonality and texture. I really hope for a lightweight, warm and breathable jacket. Looking quite a while for a Jacket which I can wear as stand alone and as mid layer under my J54-LP for the cold winter days in Munich.
I should get my delivery Monday or latest Tuesday. Let's see.

Forever jealous of 54 owners ...will always regret passing that piece!

Was my first acronym part which I bought and only because it was the only Jacket available on the web shop at this time. the fabric is awesome and it still looks like brand new. 
sometimes you get lucky.

Curious how you sized, would you recommend going one down or did you go with your usual size?

Anyone else a little disappointed the P23a-s doesn’t have the ladder lock buckles? I like that they button, and that I can get buckles for like $1 on Amazon, but I don’t really get the cinches if you have to always wear a belt too :huh:

Somehow I actually prefer buttons. My P10-S uses buttons while the P10TS-DS uses lock buckles, which is faster. But i always find buttons more sturdy... personal preference. My guess is buttons for Stotz and buckles for DS fabric.

Weird question, but anyone ever found a way of putting mods on a 3a-1? Feel like in theory you could attach something to the belt loops on the bottom back of the bag...

I would stick with my usual size. 
I am 180cm (5.9 ft) and use for all my ACR Jackets size M and so far that works very well. I am normally wearing a 50/52 or L, but ACR is always a little bigger and wider than the rest. The J54-LP is quite big for size M, but as long as you are not too thin and lightweight it should work for you. Specially if you want to wear a mid-layer under the Jacket. Currently I always use my J48-BR as mid-layer and for a long time I used an ISOARA insulated Jacket as well. And that was fitting very well. I hope that helps.

comparison of the left chest pocket for j47a and j47ts

I feel like if you put a mod in the left chest pocket on the j47ts it would just feel really awkward if it isn't the new xpac mod that was teased earlier. any other ones would just feel like a bunch of rubbing would go on.

If both chest pouches were somewhat loaded it probably wouldn’t feel tooo awkward I’m guessing. I’m more interested in how much of a pain in the ass it is to mount shit to that internal TS? And how useful it is based on that...?
