Mk1 will be too big. Exchanged my mk1 for a mk3 for this very reason 

Is it perfect? Snug fit? How practical is it, having to undo all those buckles just to get at the MK3?

@junkie_dolphin I currently use two Mk1s on my 5ts; one on each side of the bag. An Mz1 and mz3 on front underneath the buckles. The picture here isn't updated the mz3s but it all fits nicely.

Is there any wash label on j28gt or j68ws? 

Yeah you just gotta dig for them. Tags are always hidden somewheres in the garment

Or you could just follow Gore’s instructions for said fabric, ACR basically just copy and pastes that shit on the tags

For the 28 i believe its in the left side hand pocket. Don't have mine anymore so can't double check but think thats right.

Question about the 3A-5TS:

On images of the 3A-6TS I can see that the 3A-MK3 fits nicely between its compression buckles. It looks like the 3A-MK1 is a little too big to fit between them. Is the space between compression buckles the same on the 3A-5TS? In other words, could one fit the MK3 between buckles on the 5TS?

More broadly speaking, what kind of modulars do you guys use on the 5TS/6TS? Thinking about different options right now.

I was using other non acr mods for a while but wasn't really working for me. Too much faf.

Currently happy w new setup on my 6ts of all internal pockets.

https://www.bagjackshop.com/en/baicyclon-inr-pct-l_903_2331 - this is the L one

So i have 1 x large across the back 2 x small on the sides and 1 x med in the front. Means i can pack all the fiddly bits cables, kindle, chargers, sunglasses etc etc down the sides whilst still having the main compartment for jackets and quick use stuff. Saves rumaging for ages also means you fit size req's for flights which is handy.

+ Nice and cheap alt :)

thanks guys, just found j68-ws's at left hand pocket, probably j28gt is at the same place. 

Btw, j68's hand pockets are enormous, quite similar to some pants' deep pocket concept, dividing one pocket into two.

More broadly speaking, what kind of modulars do you guys use on the 5TS/6TS? Thinking about different options right now.

5TS has 10.5cm width between the straps, 6TS has 11.5cm.

MK1 width is 12cm, MK3 width is 9cm. This is at the backside though, and the front side is 0.5cm narrower.

Which means - MK1 will fit super snug on 6TS, but it fits. It's too big for 5TS though, as others have already mentioned. (unless you don't mind the straps going over the MK1s)

To back all this up, here's a pic of my 5TSR with MK3s and 6TS with MK1s:

thx,

measurements: both are pretty close to each other, maybe the same. (FIT BLOCK)

I would like to know your meaning regarding the wearing experience! = ultrawide / DFMA / any differents?

The knee silouette is different, how do you like it?

(Thinking about at DS27__ with cuffs.)

Sold my trusty J15-GT shell and now I'm without a waterproof jacket...looking to buy one new or used. If you could pick one shell to have, which would it be?

I think my favourite will always be the J28-GT, esp. in terms of the functionality of the chest pockets.

I always thought one flak pocket is more useful than 3, but I guess it works for some people. I have P23 pants and I only use 3 of the 7-8 pockets it has.

I thought so too at first, but just find them incredibly functional. Certain pockets for certain things. I'm especially fond of the mezzanines, with the larger one used for phones, passports, notebooks, and the smaller one being the perfect fit for a cardholder wallet.

Personally, I find that it's a stark contrast with the P23A, where I pretty much only use the phone pocket. I find the placement of the side pockets very clumsy (or rather, form over function), and the zips make them even more difficult to use.

Last but not least, the hitch tabs on the J28 are really useful, given the width of the sleeves. Much more so than the other pieces I own, where I struggle to roll the sleeves up over my forearms.

The only drawback is the hood, imho. It's baggy, and makes the collar quite bulky. The folding "mechanism" means that you often end up with two air intakes on the side.

But, it's definitely my favourite waterproof jacket from Acronym. Much more so than the J1A or J47A. I'm personally not a huge fan of the chest pocket layout on either of these (I know, I know, lynch me).

Jackets with baggier sleeves are the only ones I've found the hitch tabs somewhat useful on. It is so cumbersome if not impossible with slimmer sleeves. Admittedly, the only time I've used them is while biking when slinging isn't an option.

Anyone that owns the J76, do you use it as your main? It's more similar to my J15 that I just sold. I wonder if you can squeeze some of the thicker insulators underneath.

Yup, my main shell now lined with the 58 or 65 during colder months. I preferred the utility over the j1 both pockets and hood wise. Have the 61 for severe weather.

J16-GT could be the only Acronym piece I own for the rest of my life and I'd be quite happy. Pocket capacity > quantity but fortunately it has both. The chest pockets are huge. Looking at pictures of it before, I assumed the pockets would reach up to the stitch line just above the top zipper, but they actually go all the way up to the shoulder stitching, it's wild. Will swallow boarding passes and books with ease.

since both wool surface lp in j54 and mixture lp in j1a are listed as hardshell.

well my daydreaming acrnm jacket would be something j29a-lp the wool surfaced one or you may call the cut version of j38 would work.

the softshell ultimate version blazer is long da sein the ss-j5, as well as the leather blazer l-j11.

Yea I don't see myself moving mine either unless people want to pay up for it. It has wings

Really wish they would do an updated DS version of the J16. The GT's pattern is so great, I feel like it would be perfect in DS.

I wear the J76 since a few months now in cold and warm weather areas and it works for me very well. I used the jacket even for hiking trips. I use the J76 in combination with the J74-PX for colder months and it just works fine.

J76 in Medium, just to have a different view from the motherside pics:

Appreciate all the help, ended up getting a J76 since it's the closest to the J15 I just sold. I prefer a more streamlined look because

1.) Usually have my 3A-1 on me

2.) 3A-1 is a lefty version and the way pockets are placed on some of the busier jackets, I was worried the strap would just be over the pockets all the time.

in case anyone was curious, medium p30a over a large p30a. only major difference i could see in terms of sizing. everything else is pretty much identical or a few millimeter difference.
