I found that paclite was easier to keep clean as well. Unlike goretex pro, paclite is easy to spot-clean. The outer is a deeper black too if I'm remembering correctly..

Agreed on both points.

Are the discussions on Discord more informed? Just wondering if there's been talk of any WS pieces coming this Spring/Summer.

Just received my J36-S, I must say look & feel is great but the fit seems to be smaller than usual.

Could it be that size-wise it is out of spec but they choose to sell it anyway? Is the J76-GT also smaller compared to other jackets?

Maybe it's just me being nit picky. Bobs your uncle.

if you measure your j36, does it match what's posted on the acrnm website? it seems like a lot of ppl are having issues with the sizing.

I'll take some measurements later tonight. I actually worked for G-Star a while and you do not wanna know how many times entire product series have been out of spec.

Unfortunately it's a bit to slim for me so I'm gonna sell it.

Does anyone have feedback on the P10A-E's?

I picked up 2 pairs, but have only tried them on thusfar, and am still deciding whether to keep them. My initial thoughts on the nylon was a pass, but having tried on the black pair today, it's starting to grow on me.

I think it is a really great lightweigh summer pant. the structure of the material is quite strange in the beginning compared to my other acrnm pants, but so far I like it. I probably  need a lighter belt as the cobra from backjack, but so far the pant works as well without belt. I will use the pants in the next 3-4 weeks heavily during my vaction. Afterwards I probably can give a more accurate feedback.

Unfortunately sometimes the people you work with make mistakes (correctly grading the measurements, forgetting about shrinkage during washing, ironing etc).

Or the manufacturer messes up and doesn't follow up on the tech pack / revisions / instructions etc. It could be anything.

But if E would get allot of returns (which I highly doubt) then he can claim most of $ back from the manufacturer if it was their fault.

Well it's been pretty known that the j36 is a slimmer fitting jacket compared to other pieces.

Anyone with P32 feedback? 

I got the P32-DS. They are slightly bigger than TTS. They are loose enough that they don't touch your legs at all when you're standing still. Feels like wearing loose comfy pajama pants. The pocket arrays are ergonomic and everything is easily accessible. The mezzanine pocket is absolutely massive.

Extremely happy with my purchase. These seem like pants I will keep forever.

Overall, I would say that these are just an upgraded P16A. Highly recommended.

Here are some real measurements for the J36-S in LARGE, as well as a basic bitch fit. Apologies for the quality... Sufu does some serious compression.

If you need any particular measurements, let me know and I will add.

 

1/2 chest:

Shoulders, measured edge-to-edge (probably a little off, as this is quite difficult due to Errolson's magic seamstress skills:

Shoulders, part two:

Just got a pair of p23a and compared with my ts the same size they are slightly more roomy in the crotch and leg opening is 1 cm or so wider which is nicer on the calves. Anyone else notice this or have i just got a weird pair of either ?

I surprisingly fell in love with the fabric. Super comfortable, light feeling, and high range of motion without restriction. I find it to be a happy medium between stotz(windproof) and dry skin(comfort and stretch). The only downside that it is audible while walking, but not as loud as something like gore tex pro.

 In terms of abrasion resistance, do you see this material pilling over time like DS or is it more similar to stotz?

Wore my alpha green pair everyday for a week and I haven't noticed any kind of wear or pilling on them yet. Need more time to judge the durability. I'm quite happy with the fabric for now..I like the overall feel and drape.

The GT Pro noisiness is my biggest gripe. Feels and sounds like you’re wearing a damn tarp. A tarp that breathes a little.  

 Paclite is sooooooo luxe, quiet, and comfy by comparison. The facing fabric on my J34GT-PL just feels awesome and gives more of that ninja vibe. I know it’s not as element proof as the top tier gt pro, but the trade offs are worth it IMO. Really wish ACR would revisit using that shit. 

You're in luck. J61 in Paclite coming FW1920.

Handfeel is absolutely epic glacier's strong suit. I sometimes wear my pcu jacket around the house instead of a hoodie because it's so nice next to skin. Purely by comfort it absolutely beats all competitors in the same weight/function range such as dryskin, dynamic, durastretch and terratex. Of course the downside to this is pilling but if you stay away from rocks, velcro and high-denier nylon/cordura you'll be alright.
