already having goretex seam tape issues on my j47ts-gt on the bottom zippers and i've worn it twice sigh.  do you guys use the goretex glue in the repair kit or think it'll be alright to just super glue that bish back on?  not worrying about breathability cause its on the zippers.

Now I'm confused af. Has anyone actually seen the J61-AH? Can't find pics, though it looks like Errolson is folding one in the Roborace video...

30 fugly ass over-priced folders. Lot more where that came from. The maker has bad business practices too. If you have money to drop and want a proper weirdo style custom folder, that’s actually worth the cash I’d look at Gavko Knives.

If you flip it backward and attach it with the tag facing the front, it’s like a tec sys logo tape. Having said that, I didn’t buy it but hope someone will and show us how it look.

Btw my recalled J63A arrived at acrnm yesterday, and it only took them a day to repair and ship it again. Turnaround time will probably be about 2 weeks total despite UPS's crazy shipping route (Japan->USA->Germany->Czechia) and some delivery delay due to some supposed "Incomplete address information".

Same, just got an email this morning saying it is being shipped out today. was actually surprised with the 1 day repair. My label has been created but doesn't have an expected delivery date yet.

Had the same on a different order from them. Expected delivery date came like 1-2 days after my label was created.

Surprised the 3A-MP1 wasn't reissued. Great piece of kit.

I said the same thing, such a terrible 3a release imho :/ The recycled ideas using new material and 60% price hike, i'm disappointed.

Also, just for reference...   2015 prices compared to 2018.

3A-MK3: 138eur ---> 227eur

3A-MK2: 153eur ---> 295eur

3A-MZ2TS: 99eur ---> 240eur

This happens to every luxury brand that goes mainstream and has resell potential. People will still buy into the brand no matter what.

I thought this release of mods and bags has been amazing. I’ve been searching for a pair of mp2ts for the longest. And thought things like the mz1 and mts6 would never come back ! Not to mention almost every bag returned. Big price hike true but I’ve been searching for so long it was nice to wake up to go to the bathroom at 520am and secure the Bag lol

Yeah not complaining at all, I've been chasing the pen holder for a minute. I like the new stuff too.

Same, I'm stoked I finally got all those mods I've been hunting for. And yes the price hike hurts, but it's still half of what you'd have to pay some reseller on grailed for the same item in used condition (if it ever turns up for sale to begin with). And if it were the original pricing, things would've been all swooped up by resellers instantly anyway. Only thing I'm bummed about is that the drop happened while I was on a long distance flight... the MP2TS was long gone when I got off that plane ... I guess you can't have it all.

Speaking of P23 variants, am I the only one who can't figure out how to use the drawcord on the -S/-CH properly? The one on the -DS has buckles to hold it in place, but the regular one just seems to end in loose straps for decoration? Is there a way to fix them in the cinched position? I realize you can just tie their ends together but that looks like crap and gets in the way of using a belt...

I didn't see this answered but I had trouble with this at first too.  I figured out that you have to tug the left and right straps separately back and forth repeatedly and it'll cinch the material pretty well.  It'll come loose a bit over time but it'll make putting on the belt easier.
