So I’ve always been a bit baffled by the measurements given for Acronym’s sizing charts. Always assumed I was a medium, but when I tried on the J58 I found it too tight through the chest, and I’ve had a similar problem with some SISP jackets.

So my question is: do you guys take the same size in Veilance that you do in Acronym? What about mainline Arc’teryx? I’m solidly a medium in both, so it would help to know how the two brands compare. One guy told me he sizes up for Acronym vs. Arc’teryx.

Really depends on the fit of each Acronym jacket. My general rule is that I size up for Profile fitting jackets and stay with my regular size for Straight fitting jackets. J58 is tight in the chest because the fit is Profile and supposed to layer underneath shells.

As a rule of thumb I'm an M in Arc'teryx (mainline and Veilance - I have a Veilance Field Jacket in L, but wear it over multiple layers) and an L in Acronym jackets (profile and straight).

Really depends on the jacket and/or generation. I have a J1A-GT and J47TS-GT (both in L) and while both spec sheets indicate the cuts as 'straight', the J1 feels closer to a 'profile' cut; to the point where wearing it over my J58 make things uncomfortably tight (could easily size up) - the J47 has room for a liner and then some. This is to say that the notion of what is 'straight' and 'profile' seems to have evolved over time and that following/comparing product measurements is a much more reliable rubric for sizing.

3A-5TS + 3A-MK2 + 3A-MZ2TS + 3A-MZ1

I chose to rig the 5TS with only X-PAC mods. The MK2 is spacious as to be expected, I chose the MZ2TS for the other side so that the bag does not become too long, it is much more compact and flat as compared to the MK2, limited in space in spite of it’s size. The MZ1 is like a long accessories holder, for cables, pens, etc.

I did pretty much same set, but changed the mk2 to mk1 one the side, which is really handful.IMG_5518.thumb.jpg.1e57dd3f5b68aeaa1154882c4cb0c936.jpg

Could someone please help me out with the 1/2 chest measurements for the J1B-S (at the least, L and XL)?

Looking to pull the trigger, but getting conflicting information from Sellers, END and other sources...

Thanks @eyesolation.

I have conflicting measurements from END, with the 58/61cm for the L/XL, respectively. One of the Sellers has echoed these measurements, so I'm pretty confused.

The Firmament measurements also seem overstated... I expect the cut to be tighter than the J28-GT, which has a 62/65cm 1/2 chest for L/XL, respectively.

Any thoughts? Would someone that actually owns one be able to confirm?

I have the J1B and J28 in medium. I can't confirm the exact measurements for L/XL but I would say the J1B fits "roomier" than the J28.

Thanks @deathrazr... Any chance that you could give a measurement of the actual garment, just to confirm against the Firmament measurements?

Anyone run into issues with delayed customs clearance when trying to return something to Acronym? I sent back something using my local courier (stupid in hindsight, but UPS was charging something ridiculous) and it's been over a week without any updates. Acronym customer service hasn't responded to my emails either which is strange.

Yes - exact same thing happened to me. Good news is it sat in customs for a week and a half but then was delivered no problem - just received my refund last night for something I shipped back weeks ago. I would still probably email and make sure they know where its at and supply tracking info etc.

Okay, that's a relief. I emailed them all the info a couple of days ago but they haven't replied yet so I was getting anxious.

when I examined the tracking for my shipment it seems like Česká pošta put the package in a warehouse somewhere and sent acronym dynamics s.r.o. an old fashioned letter telling them their package was in a warehouse... I can see why they recommend UPS

Ceska Posta makes you prove value etc before they release a package, and they're actually quite quick about processing - delays would be from the time it takes the recipient to supply documentation. You can sign up to do it digitally, but I guess ACR isn't quite at that level yet :D

Are there any reputable sites that sell rarer/older pieces?

Regret selling my J28GT back in the day, may be in the market for another or something.

Anyone with the J65-AK can comment on how you like it and on fit/sizing?  Would True to size work or def size up 1 like Errolson? Any complaints with this piece?

Personally I feel J65 actually runs BIG, not small.  But I never tried my TTS so I can't say for sure.  For reference, I am usually sz L, and I tried and could fit sz S (still ok with a tee inside, but I would not be able to wear a hoodie), tried sz XL as well and it was just WAY too big (I imagine I could fit a hoodie AND a shell inside and still have room). 

However the material may actually shrink (?) if you wash it... so maybe it would fit tighter down the road, I am not sure.

Cheers to all!
I am looking out for a J25-WS. Any thoughts / recommendations regarding the different generations (gen 1.0 in 2012 and gen 1.1 in 2016) and the sizing?
In the pages before I found the same question but no answers. Sorry if I oversaw something.
Thanks in advance to y'all!

you'll have to hunt through various marketplaces such as grailed, yjp, rakuten, sufu, and such. No actual sites sell it unless it's a consignment.

That year probably means it's a Limonta version? Price would heavily depend on the condition, particularly the material's fading. Do you have any pictures?

I am in the market for a mid layer. Can anyone comment on the J72-AK in terms of warmth? How does it compare to J58 and J74?

Also, anyone with inside news on that new J1A with the flipped collar? I think it would look much better with the collar stand up.

hoping somebody can help me out,

I'm going to buy my first pair of ACR pants but i'm noticing discrepencies in the pictures posted online for the P23TS-S

in some pictures they appear to be a cropped pant ending high above the ankle and in others they seem to extend down, at least touching the top of the ankle (see pictures)

Is this just due to the model's height?

is this due to how they are sitting around the model's hips?

Is this a dumb question with a super obvious answer? probably.

The top picture is from END, who is known for their shit styling/sizing of ACR. Pretty sure that dude is 6'3 rocking a small.

Heard the J74 isn't terribly warm. The 58 is a beast for warm imo. There's some chatter about the AV Mionn vs the 58 a few pages back. Comfort temps are subjective but I would think they'd rank 74<72<58 under a shell.

edit: @esper never take any sizing advice from END lol
