Is there an additional pocket on J78 under armpit? confused, since the total pockets were stated as 4.  

Aren't they the interior pockets? Copy should really list as 6 pockets total

which spray do u use?

Got them off of eBay. Listed as a friends and family pair. They don’t look like they’ve been sprayed or painted, the production quality is impeccable. Believe it or not I think they might actually be legit. Here’s a video that shows closer details:

Yes, those are the interior ones, which can be accessed from two sides (both zips for each pocket are inside the coat though). If you count the backwards-facing side pockets as separate, more like 6 on the jacket, yeah.

Dont want to rain on your parade, I would be skeptical about them if they dont come with the numbered card.

Oic they’re the same pocket lol. I thought they were separate compartments vs dual access. Thanks for clarifying.

Worked for Nike for ~5 years and nothing I love more than some samples/promos and f&f shit. And to be honest my hunch is telling me that there's nothing to be skeptical about! Those look fine. Seen plenty of influencers toss to the side whatever cool gear they get, try to return it, sell it online- whataveyou. Often sans all the packaging because they've thrown it out lol. You've come across a great find! The best way to tell difference or if they're indeed real or just a custom though is if you share with us a pic of the inner tag! Usually it'll say promo or something different than the GR model.

The bottom pic of those reminds me of dentist fillings/dirty grills. I’d rather have the thirsty bandits with matte sand colored cells

Yeah the VMs are legit. No spray can achieve a chrome effect that well. Nice find.

Crazy find man! Definitely not sprayed, it's way too even and flawless of a chrome finish to be some hand-spray job. the knit looks perfect too.

But why the caption of the photo says"Exterior JacketSlingǽ anchor loop"? I thought there is an entrance to the pocket from outside as well.

Thanks for the advice on the tag, figured they were legit once I checked the tag and noticed promo. Already got them in a mirrored display case. Only ended up paying 300 for them.

Not that I'm aware of, sadly

If it's like the J50, you cannot access the interior pockets from the outside of the jacket.  They have dual-entry on the inside only.  The exterior pockets are separate and single entry.  

Yeah this is correct. The photo caption is just referring to the exterior loop for the jacketsling (sewn under the armpit area) if you want to mount the sling on the outside, I believe.

the teeth of the zip against the neck takes some getting used to

i was thinking i could never get used to this but glad you're into it.  excited to see which jackets they make with SD fabric in the future. 

on a different note, LA6B-AD came in today and I am surprised by how much I like it.  Got it thinking 'meh, lets just try it' and now I'm thinking I'll be wearing it everyday this winter and may never sell it

Is there any treatment that can be done to Limonata to preserve the color?  My 3a-1 is in pretty good shape, but not personally in love with the patina that I see on some of the more well loved bags.  Thanks for any info.
