What is your best modular liner for the ACRONYM shells that can be connected? The latest J58-WS or something different?

I really love my J74-PX because it is lightweight, keeps you warm but not too warm and it has a hood. I use it in combination with the j76-gt which works great and below my J54-lp as well, but here I do not the option to connect the jackets unfortunately. The j58-ws is great too, but it may depends what hardshell you have and the j58-ws is very warm...when you commute or walking around in the city (at least in Germany even during winter) it's getting sweaty very fast:D

Many thanks. I have the J76 and am in Germany as well. Wouldn’t need a second hood. Have a 7Mesh outflow which works but cannot be connected. Will think about the J58. Am commuting with a bicycle everyday for 30 minutes and temperature is an issue. The Veilance Node that I use as well sometimes gets me warm when temperatures above 5 degrees.

For your information. Peggs & Son is offering a 20% discount. Seems to work on Acronym as well.

My impression from the j58-ws was that it keeps you really warm. for commute on a bike it's a tough decision. Maybe someone else here has more day to day experience with the j58 and can help you more. btw, I really love the 7mesh stuff!

Seconding @Holger — I own J74-PX, J58-WS 1.2, and J65-WS, and I wear my J74 the most. I live in NYC where our winters tend to be pretty brutal. J74 insulates really well with very little bulk added, and I've found it to be fine for temperatures down to the mid-20s (F), and it doesn't get clammy once you get to a warmer area. J58 is much warmer for even lower temps, but does tend to overheat a bit once you get into your warmer destination and unzipping tends to be necessary.

J58 is too warm for active use imo. Get something like an arcteryx atom or j74 as mentioned above.

My goto combination for cycling during the winter is the J74 plus an arcteryx alpha fl

Even more products listed as "coming soon" - no sign of J84-S yet :(

Curious about the prices for J47-GT and P10-DS as these are minor upgrades from the previous iterations. S23-AK seems quite tempting. Overall the first drop felt more innovative in my opinion.

About the J1L - curious if these are made in china as well compared to the normal gen 2.2 but lets see when everything will drop!

Innovation just for the sake of change isn’t always a good thing. Sometimes it leads to ‘rain catcher’ thigh pockets:wacko:.

P10’s <$1000 USD.

J47-GT was always a silent killer and nearly the perfect jacket for me.  The only thing I had against it was lack of interops, so this update is perfect.

Gamers will spend hella money to make their in-game characters appear "wealthy" but when it comes to real life they refuse to understand fashion, or even dress up nicely, while they say things like that

While I admit I haven't gotten to wear any ACR gear lately, when I do have to go outside, is there anything that feels more appropriate to the current state of affairs than Acronym right now?

Unrelated: Does anyone else think the J1L is absolute garbage? All of those features on a long coat just looks out of place to me. Much prefer the J39 / J46 / 53 / 62. Also underwhelmed by the J47, one of my favorite shells ever. Seems like at the very least they could add a shake-dry hood like they have with similar models, but even so, that hood was/is comically small. A J47 with a removable hood would be the perfect shell IMO.

bit off topic from the current conversation, has anyone had any experience with re-dying/colouring black stotz pants? what was the process like and what products did you use? would simplicol or dylon dyes work? is the colour consistent with the rest of the farbic? how long do they last? i understand many here like the patina but i personally cannot stand it and am planning for the eventuality that the whole pants will need an injection of new colour. my back pocket is already seeing some wear from abrasion.

i don't think any home method would do - stotz is so densly woven that it won't absorb dye and will just leave dirt on the surface, please correct me however if someone had any success with home dyes
