^^ I think so - a simple everyday one would have been nice

Simple is not the first thing that comes to mind when I ponder anything Acronym. Everyday yes. But simple...?

The simple design is what I was referring to

There's always the 3a-7ts if you were around for that. (Still waiting for a re-release)

I recently post some personal thoughts on 7ts and my general conclusion is that it would not be re release(yeah that silver foil prototype while in j23 fit Lenny being rocking) and conclusion was confirmed Jack himself at Instagram.

 

Alternative most likely be a smaller backpack, like the 13ts as 8ts replacement, and the new one confirmed by this gq interview.

the new backpack in the gq interview looks like a backpacking backpack. like it's got a detachable brain, maybe comes with some hip support. like at least 65 liter capacity.

would be cool if he released a smaller backpack so i can replace my 12 year old mission workshop backpack lolol.

Kinda looks like a travel pack, would not be surprised if he had made himself one considering.

I don’t see a brain on it. Am I missing a photo somewhere?

To me it looks like a large x-pac duffle—possibly those backpack straps can be stashed away. The lack of visible hip belt also indicates to me that this is not a dedicated backpack. Could be totally wrong though.

I was wondering if I can get an exact ID on this jacket I purchased, did not come with spec sheet so I am at a loss. Seems to be a J11 but I have never seen any models of the J11 without two breast pockets, and without the flaps over the hand pockets. It has six pockets total. Is made of paclite goretex, has the removable hood and sling capabilities. The jacket did not come with the sling though however. Thanks for the help in advance and sorry for the poor phone quality pics.

Looks to be GT-J29

Agreed -- this iteration must be mighty old, because the last pac lite version of the gt-j29 (i believe) was 09-10, but it had zippered access to the bottom hand pockets which I don't see in the j29 

above.

 

@Dakota just curious where did you purchase it, that didn't have the jacket name in the listing description?

Here is the exact listing:

https://www.grailed.com/listings/8920570-Acronym-Acronym-blazer-gore-Tex-j11-j29-XL

 

Seller was not exactly sure of the model either. Couldn't not buy at that price though lol, but it is generally confusing me which iteration exactly of the j11 or j29 it could be mostly because the single breast pocket and the lack of flaps on the hand pockets.

Anybody have a J-74 and a J-36 and can speak on layering the two?

@Dakota

I own a J-11. Confirming with others  

The J-11 has:
- 7 pockets (2 chest, 2 lower, 2 gravity, 1 upper left arm)
- The label is black
- The left sleeve tab has the old ACR logo
 
Hope this helps.

I have 2 colorsways for the J74 in size Large but no J36; I will say that the J74 in general is a very sung fit on me. Im 5-9 / 190lbs (athletic build); I can probably squeeze in a Medium if I wanted to. I will say this - the insulators I got in large because I can wear them as a jacket if I wanted to or under a shell. I would consider going up a size for the J36 if you plan on pairing with an insulator since I have read on here the jacket runs small.

 

I also have a Large J58-ws and that fits much looser than the Large J74

Hey guys, can y'all legit check this J1TS-S I bought off grailed? Unless there's some trick that I'm missing the gravity pockets do not work, no matter how hard I throw my arm my phone won't pop out of the sleeve, which was a huge disappointment. The snaps on the inside of the pocket don't release. Thanks in advance for any insight.

that's not how the pocket works. you have to undo the button with your hand then throw your phone out.

Lol thanks for the reply, can you tell I'm new the game? I literally just figured that out from watching Errolson in the videos. So does the jacket look legit?
