I had 2 x different J50-S and got rid of them cause I couldn’t stand the raccagni zipper. It is quite nice with the stotz layer and feels bulletproof but personally I infinitely prefer the J50-WS and J78-WS. J50 is quite fitted indeed if you ask me vs 78 so I prefer that as a liner. You could always size up on J50 but I always think that looks sloppy as the shoulders won’t align etc...

Appreciate the feedback.  Don’t think the zipper would be too big of a concern for me.  My j28 Is an S, so I’m hoping the M in the J50 won’t have that snug fit I’m worried about

I’m curious what made you dislike the Raccagni zipper, since I love the one on my J47R. Was it a longevity issue?

It just didn’t work for me - I didn’t bother looking for a workaround as I just want something at that price to work as-is out the box else it goes back. Had to yank it down on one side to align it all the time etc. Same kind of reason why I got rid of the J59-GT as I couldn’t stand that zip either.

I have seen the raccagni zips work fine on other models though and clearly people got on ok with the J50-S apart from me. It has a great sturdy feel to the jacket and I was bummed not to keep it at the time.

I really like it. Super soft material, keeps me warm (I really have very short hair) and I haven't sweated yet when I'm on my bike or using it inside (e.g. subway).

It's quite a price, but I own the H4-AK and it's still in a good quality and I've been using it almost daily for the past 3 years during the winter season. I hope the H5-AJ will long so last as well.

Another fit picture of the J44-SD in green, been wearing it almost everyday the past week, and loving it! The dual zip aesthetic when using the zip expansion reminds me of some older gt jackets.

warm, light, beautiful weave pattern. one size might be an issue, i know it was for a friend of mine. not keen on how umites is wearing it on mothersite, on my head its that shallow fisherman hat fit that i was looking for when fully pulled down. 

it likes to fray, keep depiller on hand and give it a good once over from time to time depending on how much head time it gets. great hat. $300 hat? no chance. but we're not here because of that.

Heads up St Alfred has a promo that looks to be working on acronym ... J78 and j79 ...

Also, anyone have further impressions of the p34-e? I've read a little bit about the encapsulated nylon fabric. Is it prone to pilling as was initially discussed? The pants look boring in pictures but I saw them last month at eliminator in Tokyo and they were much more interesting in person to me. Didn't have my size though so I couldn't try em.

I do find the P-34E are prone to piling. I had mine tapered from the knee down so the piling works for me eventually. The material is comfortable and does rustle a little, extremely breathable and works in the tropics too. I am very happy with it, despite the slit cargo pockets on the side the pants retains its shape well when still or moving.

last collection shorts had imo the perfect solution for the buckles, you have them, but you also have beltloops

The last collection of shorts was excellent. I bought 2 pairs. However, they could have ditched the rear pocket flaps (they just made accessing the rear pockets more difficult and raised the price for no good reason.)

Also, access to the side pockets was made more difficult by the rear-facing design. Increased design and manufacturing cost and zero utility!!! The left and right "phone" pockets were great!!  I missed the little internal pocket inside the front of the left pocket. I used it for usb drives and other small stuff.

Those corner extensions of the main left and right pockets continue to piss me off. Every friggin' Acronym creation has them. They are old, useless and . . . . . . . They trap everything from lint to whatever. They should have been abandoned long ago. I get my wife to sew them closed; but sometimes I miss and . . . .

Hate to be that guy, but does anyone have fit pics with the J50S?  Been searching and only seem to be able to find stock pictures, and just a few other pics.

 

 I was hugely considering the J78ws, but opportunity arose to buy a J50S for less than half the price of the 78.

 

Just not 100% yet as it the pictures I have seen look a bit more fitted than I prefer.

 

 I would like to wear this as a stand-alone, as well as a possible liner inside my J28.  Never owned stotz so don’t know what that’s like as welll

Not the best, but a couple pictures of the J50-S in RAF. I usually wear this by itself, but have worn it as a liner a few times and it fits under my various GT shells in the same size.

I have these. Different feel than the HD but not by much unless you had em side by side. The waist side pockets are deep as well as the backs. I like the mezz pockets for quick access. It fulfilled all my needs use. I fit an iPad into the mezz pocket every now and again as well. 
 

In with regards to pilling on the fabric, I haven’t had this yet after multiple days of use.

Have J65-AK. Dehairs like crazy. Definitely not a long lasting item. KM will show pilling with time instead of dehairing. 

IMO. The 65-KM/AK is bulky af under the shell. Only for over-shell/shirt purpose.  So, they aren’t super practical. 

I find the J65-AK to be somewhat itchy, picky, or scratchy. I have to wear a thick shirt or a jacket underneath or wear two layers of shirts underneath. It's warm and it's nice-looking when new but I must agree . . .it won't wear too well!

Iteration on the J36 using J44-SD (_ Fabric Technology) would be nice.

You guys just saved me a lot of money. Thanks. Was really looking into buying one but this sounds quite bad. Had the J65-AJ and returned it as well, same thing about the fabric (scratchy), also the cut was just not for me, especially the arms looked kinda strange, not anything like on the product pics.

V happy with the j65-km, not at all uncomfortable and it's probably the most cozy article of garment I own. While I agree it's bulky underneath a shell, it looks great on top and worn as a outer over a long sleeve. It also has quite a bit of stretch, something I didn't expect from such a thick cut of Merino wool.

i would like to echo this sentiment, the merino is special. cozy and has natural stretch. i have fallen asleep in it more than once. really love it when acr works with organic textiles. this is such a lovely intersection of proven materials and forward thinking pattern engineering. god i love this thing. 

Didn't wanna repost pic i posted a couple weeks ago. included one more recent pic and one bonus - apple store employee asked to sketch me on an ipad. he liked the garms but apparently didn't like my face.

my pair just came in, pics soon

fit-wise, it's basically a P10 with half/elastic hem rather than a zip, has a nifty phone pocket on the right thigh and a zippered pocket on the left

fits a little more "formal" than a P10, and material has a crazy amount of stretch and is very breathable despite being pretty substantial in thickness

Any thoughts on the shakedry hood on the J36-S or the new J27-GT? Is it comfortable and does it hold up well against rain?

Comfort might be based on perspective. It's really thin but definitely stands in the rain. I love it personally.

Can only speak to the J36-S, but the water resistance baffles me, worn through the past spring in nyc, and a bit this season so far and aside from a slight dampness after walking in central park for an hour in downpour, it’s been really good. I will say that as a person with a longer nose/face i get a little rain on face with the hood, but otherwise love it. Also it packs nicely and the outer face is good on skin imo.

Agreed with xbee, the overall waterproofness of the hood is great. Wore it a few times in a down pour and the jacket soaked through and the hood didn't. 

Although I dont know if the hood is shakedry on the 36-s. The 27-gt specifically calls it shake dry 2 layer while the 36 is a 2.5 layer hood.

A friend just got these and isn't sure if they are legit. I know there are pretty good fakes out there now so any one have any idea?
Size tag looks off and the care tag has misspelt words which leads me to believe they are fake but just wanted to get a second opinion/s to confirm (as the person he got it from insists they are legit).

Thanks
