Is your guidance the same for both of these? I mean I know they're wide pants so shouldn't worry about my thighs being 25" an issue for either cut, P10 or the 34? I definitely don't want them too baggy, based on the photos on the main site, Medium would be fine for me as well, ill check the length..I am 170cm

ah sorry i was talking about the P35-DS. i have thicker thighs and calves than the average person so the pants actually do not fit so baggy but i could see it being baggy for someone who is on the thinner side. however the DS material is so unstructured that it just drapes fairly nicely especially since there are not external cargo pockets. take a look at this post.

i think with your height size S might be the way to go. i don't think these pants would look great with stacking

Not a pro at fitpics but here are a few of the new P35-DS. I'm 180cm / 75kg wearing a Size M together with a custom Enfin Leve Dryskin Shirt and Birkenstocks because, you know, staying at home anyways for how long it will be necessary.

Does this stuff sell out quick? Maybe a n00b question, I know, but I just sold a bunch of things, including a bike frame :) which covers a new pair of these..

What size did you end up getting in the P10?  I'm 5'9'' and even the S looks like it might be a bit long.  I'm considering the XS..

For the love of god do not get the XS if you are 5'9. I'm 5'8 and the S fits. You could prob do an M, but S will work also. depends on how much stacking you want.

After adding to cart and then ignoring it until it sells out, I'll rest knowing that I won't have to be annoyed at having another acronym piece fall apart or de-laminate after a year-and-a-half of wear.

I don't think gore-tex delamination is really the fault of ACR tho.  That's inherent to the material, and would be the case for any manufacturer using it. Do you find more success with gt in other brands?  Also do you find the construction quality of their products lacking?  So far I've been pretty mean to all of my ACR gear and its seems to hold up really well.  Even the seemingly fragile WS stuff has held together through all of my abuse.  I mean, it shows wear, but its clothing, not magic fairy dust.  It's not gonna stay new forever unless you leave it in the sandwich bag..

Agreed. I definitely am not expecting a manufacturer to magically improve the properties of GT. I find construction of ACR pieces to fluctuate depending on some of its features (such velcro cinch on sleeves exacerbating the creasing which creates friction and rips in a fairly consistent manner — and this is me not ever utilizing that feature at all).

 

edit: just remembered, every damn gravity pocket has created friction frays on each sleeve; so either i have velcro cinch tearing or gravity pocket tearing lol

i had only one GT shell prior to my ACR discovery. that shell after 8 years had zero delam. 2/4 of my ACR have delam. And yes I granger etc.

How much had you worn that previous shell? Heavy wear/lack of proper washing are the major culprits. And ACR being style forward shit tends to encourage excessive wearing.

I have a J47A-GT, bought used, and have been wearing as my only non-hiking and non-gym day shell for a couple years now without babying, and the only delamination is a tiny 1cm spot that I accidentally left touching a heater.

Ok actual question tho, how often do y’all wash things? I was a denim guy for years so for instance my Momotaros got their first wash this winter after ~120 wears or so? 

With acr I find I wash pretty infrequently, Stotz I’d estimate 10 wears before I wash again, I’m not sure. When I do fabrication work in them I’ll usually do a week of wears and get them covered in abrasives and shit I just can’t wear them at home or to a friends as they’re gnar. But my J36-S has never been washed from last year’s drop.

Honestly DS is probably the same, I’ve never pondered this before so I don’t truly keep track, just gut check if it needs a wash? But I’ve never truly washed a GT, I’m sorry :|

So far we got 3 products in march and 3 in april so my guess would be C1-AM, S23-AK and J84-S coming in another 3-4 weeks at the beginning of may.

i wore the shit out of the other one... and im not hating on acr, its just a fact that ive had delam when by all accounts my level of wear and washing, i should not have. maybe my closet is too warm... (that is different as i moved recently) and oil plus heat is a particular risk...
