Does anyone have any feedback on the J46fo? Seems to be chilling on the main site and I wanted a long coat for a while. 

No feedback, but I wish I had them prestos...

The copy about the durability of the face fabric doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Especially considering it's literally 2x the price of the 2015 J46s. (yeah I admit I'm jealous of that hood)

i totally glossed over that €80 pill holder

erlsn is definitely taking the piss with that one

You can tease, but I ordered one of those with my larger order. The added cost when ordering other stuff is negligible. And to be honest, I just like it even if it’s totally rediculous.

3A-MTS5 (and mts4) arrived - thought I would point out that this 'hard drive' sized modular doesn't actually fit any of my portable hard drives... but it does perfectly fit a mju-II and spare roll of film; which is what I bought it for. MTS4 is great. Pics in spoiler

Did the pill holder came with the usb drive. Correct me if I am wrong but previous releases included a sony thumbdrive...

just got my J63A back from repairs. From the looks of it, They just sent me a brand new one instead and kept my old jacket that I wore for a week before sending it back. Also this time I found 3 small patches of Infinium fabric in the front pockets that could possibly be used for DIY repairs if you ever tear your jacket.

interesting to hear, glad yours made it back.  I had the three small patches of fabric in my original order, I took them out before I returned mine just in case they ended up sending a new/different jacket without the patches lol.

Was actually surprised they gave me a brand new jacket considering i wore mine heavily in the rain and light snow. I wanted to get the most use out of it before I sent it back. Curious to know what they do with the old jackets if they send everyone brand new jackets. Can they "clean" it up and sell it as brand new again? :huh:

Is the 5ts an adequate bag for hiking trips? I would be carrying a camera, spare lens, water, snacks, and my shell/jacket. I know people say its a burden on their shoulder if its a heavy load but ive seen people wear the 5ts vertically like a backpack with the waist strap on the other shoulder. Does that work well? I used my 3a-1 on the last hike it was a little rough on the shoulder.

tbh just get a hiking backpack. I would not want to carry any sort of asymmetrical load for an extended period of time. It's not good for your posture. Even if you can wear the 5ts like a backpack, a real hiking backpack would do the same job... except better.

Sounds like you've answered your own question but are in denial.

I enjoyed the actual interview bits. Some new info (for me at least) in there.

I definitely perked up when Errolson said they have 40-something Kit-1's sitting in a warehouse somewhere. Hit him up on twitter about it and he said there's no chance of getting one. LOL.

The 3 patches of Infinium are there to stop the zipper heads making an impression/tearing the fabric on the front pockets.

I got the same jacket back, pretty certain it was cleaned too (maybe steam cleaned etc). Very carefully packed so as to not wrinkle the front pockets.

Good to know thanks, I guess I should have left them in haha

Well, replying to myself with an update. I got the shipment today. The modulars I got are the MTS1, MTS2, and MTS4.

The MTS2 is disappointing. It doesn't actually fit any of the pens that I use in a useful way. 

The MTS1 is cute, but also not quite what I was expecting. It's actually too big to usefully hold my USB drive, and the button gets in the way.

MTS4 is great and will be in a permanent home on my P23TS-CH.

the 1 and 2 will probably get returned. I really wanted them to be useful as I love the array of small sizes and if my USB drive and pens had actually fit I would be keeping them.

EDIT: Also, I want more CH pants.

MP2TS: Got two in olive because I struck out in the black color.  The mods came online as I was waking up so these will have to do.  Standard issue and we all know the prognosis with these.  Both sides being TS makes it a very useful pouch.  Already put my flippers (2) in one and a Leatherman Wave (w/ bit kits and extension driver) in the other.  Good purchases.

MTS3: I was looking at this thing sideways online but decided to cop after I understood the concept.  Favorite piece of the drop.  It fits a Fluke Power voltage meter (pen) perfectly.  Also got an Extech temperature pen in there without issue and it’ll work for my USBéton M as well.  Nice pick-up for P10 carabiner attaching w/ a few bagack links for my key rings.  I’ll often use it on the pants but can hide it behind any of my MZ’s on a bag or jacket.  Likely going to get the black too.

MTS4: Copped in black and it will forever house my AirPods.  Works as advertised with TS and fits comfy in an MZ3 as well. I’ll pair it with J64TS-S often.  Thinking about copping in olive also.

MTS6: Copped in olive (total mistake since I now see the black pairs better with both my P23TS’) but am happy with it nonetheless.  Have yet to try and see how my S95 fits into it but hope my S95 fits into it.  It’s pretty much the main reason this was copped.  If not, I’ll be repurposing it for cables, chargers or similar.  I like the profile and it makes the TS wearables that much more functional.

MZ4: Copped in black as my main compartment accompaniment to J64TS-S.  I hope the combo with J1A makes my Dual Front Zip much more effective now that I have an internal pocket I can go to.  Very nice, durable, sturdy face and it fit every other mod I purchased.  An added bonus when you can do that and go home without any added bulk.

Still super curious about MTS1 to be honest.  Please send your comments if you’ve copped, as I’m very intrigued.

Gonna chime in, as my shipment has arrived as well in the meanwhile. Still a bit bummed I couldn't get the black MP2TS... but anyway, here we go:

MTS1/MTS2 are gimmicky fashion items imho, definitely not worth their price - but I kind of expected that and got them mostly for collection purposes. Ironically the cheaper MTS3 turns out to be more useful due to its easy to access top entry mechanism. The latter also makes it also possible to put it on in reverse to show the acrnm logo, which is neat. MTS4/5 are pretty much as before, but I prefer the old versions for their leather trim, and the previous MTS4 also had the logo tape, as well as 2 magnetic strips - it's really disappointing that they ditched the latter. MTS6 is actually the best bang for the buck and my favorite item in this drop.

MK1/2/3 are the usual deal - the black ones also looks nice on L2 bags. I think this is well known, but if you have a 5TS/6TS you definitely want to get two MK3s, same goes for 8TS/13TS owners getting the MK2. 

MZ1/MZ2TS are a great alternative to the MKs, they feel much more solid/structured than the latter. I'm a bit torn on the new zipper pulls though. From a utilitarian viewpoint they're great - the short end is very easy to grab - and the interconnected long end makes it really easy to close both zippers in a single pull. The only downside is that the pulls stick out quite a bit when the zippers are closed. They also feel a bit fragile and make me worry that I might tear them when doing that pull on the long end. I didn't get any of the other MZs but I'm a bit on the edge whether to grab the MZ4.

The belt turned out to be thinner / less solid than I expected and thus feels pretty cheap - not really worth it - go get a nice Bagjack mini cobra belt instead.

WTH, just got my order from the mods drop

i find that one of mp2ts is missing, even though been charged.

by the way, my 1st impression of 3a-wb2

much thinner than I expected and almost looks like women's skinny belts

So I’ve been on the hunt for a 3A-5TS-style hip belt for my 3A-1.

First I spoke to Bagjack, and they told me they wouldn’t be able to make me one like what they make for Acronym (the hip belts for Bagjack are different)—I have to assume there’s some sort of contract preventing them from doing it. They told me to talk to Acronym instead.

I just heard back from Acronym, and they’re saying they can’t sell the hip belt separately, and I’d have to buy the 5TS to get it.

I’m bummed out, but I also have to wonder what would happen if someone lost/damaged the hip belt for their 5TS or 6TS. Would they not be able to purchase a replacement?
