Acronym.

Recommended Posts

@lehadrakon, i am a similar situation with pants. i'd recommend adding p36 and p31 if you're hankering for another pair of pants. p31 are a more tapered version of the p33. though honestly, like ink's said, take it easy. check BSTs and the mothersite and just get what you think fits as and when.

for accessories, it is hard for us to help you without understanding your usual carrying capacity and distance, etc. so it's sort of hard to answer since alot of it depends on needs/preferences. but if you're looking for something bigger than the 3ts, i cannot recommend the 3a-5 highly enough. perfect for a 15inch laptop and enough carrying capacity for me when i cycle to work. fits a change of clothing + files

Unless you haven't included them, looks like you should try some midlayers and shirts.

Hey guys, I hope you feel good at this time. Got a question for long time Acronym enthusiasts. Right now I'm trying to understand what piece should be my next goal. Already asked for advice from a couple pal's that could be on this forum, but thought that asking a bigger audience would be a plus. Just need guidance in my path of exploration of brand. So here is a list of what I got in my closet. 

It really depends on what your goals are, which you have not shared, so it makes it difficult for people to help you. You mentioned "exploration," -- is that your end goal? to taste all the different flavors of ACR? If that's the case, you could focus on pieces utilizing: 

  • different fabrics (e.g. seems like you have no -CH pants)
  • silhouettes/fit blocks 
  • different solutions to similar problems (e.g. what's the best pocket organization for my use-case?)

And are there things you're dissatisfied with in your current pieces? certain (social/climate) situation that a garment doesn't address (e.g. would you feel comfortable wearing what you have to a wedding? to an office? to a board meeting? to the tropics? to deep winter?).

Not that you have to cover anything and everything with ACR, but these are some questions you should ask yourself to figure out what your "needs" are, and then people will be better equipped to help.

You have enough jackets. You have enough pants. Acronym mainly sells jackets and pants. Replace if you ever wear anything out. 

I mean, apart from the glaring omissions of a J1A-GT and 3A-1. Like, what are you even thinking?

Slim stuff is definitely not for my body type(5'7 and 85kg with strong torso and hips). Had real trouble with P10, they look like leggings on my legs. And not looking for just Acronym label on item (like H5-AJ). Soooo with all of this, I would love to hear your suggestions about what should I try to get as the next piece. (I would love to have a list with pictures of all Acronym items that were created, so I could figure out the answer on that question by myself lol). Thank you in advance! <3

 

I think any of the following items would be great additions:

j47-gt, j57ts-ss, j79-gt, j1a-gt 2.0, s8-ds, p10ts-ds. 

by pure coincidence I actually have all of these items for sale in your size. let me know

Since that roast nuked this thread into fallout, let's change topics.

I want a durable jacket that will last me a long time. A buy-it-for-life sort of thing since E is all about that (((sustainability))) nowadays. The question is, what fabric should I choose? 

The main four fabrics that are durable used on ACR jackets are 3L Gore-Tex (J47), Stotz Etaproof (J36-S), HD Cotton (J84), and Encapsulated Nylon (J33)

For GTX I know that it's made of plastic material that can block water and is used for many outdoor jackets. The only problem I can see is delamination over time, which will cause the layers to grind against one another as the jacket is worn. Apparently, you can't really do anything about that without paying a huge price. Can Gore-tex be vintage?

I don't know much about Stotz other than its swiss origin and is woven with really long fibers. What are the possible long-term implications of owning a jacket (which is prone to rough contact) made in cotton? Is there any research out there comparing the durability of Stotz, HD Cotton, and Encapsulated Nylon? Or are there better materials out there that ACR doesn't use like Polartec?

Great topic made by @CARLOOA here. Weigh your pros and cons for each fabric and see which one works best for you. I personally try to avoid Stotz jackets because I personally don't like the patina.

Thanks for the link, but it's a bit outdated as it doesn't include Encapsulated Nylon or HD Cotton. What is the difference between HD Cotton and Stotz in terms of performance anyway?

over long periods of time stotz will fade and discolor. to some, this is part of the appeal, but others dislike it. gore-tex, if cared for properly, will last a very long time, but when it fails due to delamination it fails catastrophically. epic nylon does not discolor nor does it delaminate, but is prone to pilling when it comes into contact with pack straps. 

personally i would be less concerned with long term durability and focus on what you expect performance wise: gore-tex is actually waterproof but synthetic-y, stotz looks natural but not waterproof, epic nylon is super comfortable to wear and quite breathable but not waterproof.

The other thing to take into consideration is maintenance. GTX/SS/DS (basically anything with a membrane/layers) must be washed regularly. If you don't delam sets in much quicker. Stotz you don't have to worry about.

The hd cotton is made by stotz. They're basically the same but with a different texture.

Guys, please help me out

I'm trying to find P26-S measurements (L and XL sizes), but it seems they are no longer available anywhere online.

Maybe somebody still has them saved somewhere?

as long as you take care of your gt shell by not wearing it directly against your skin (which is a key factor in delam) it should last you for a long time, and even when it does end up delaminating as years go on, there are certified gt repair centers. buy some nikwax and grangers and your shell will love you

Has anyone actually had an ACR jacket repaired for GTX delam.? Only way to do this is to have the entire fabric panel replaced and a new one sewn in, and given the complexity of most ACR patterns/detailing...

I had the back of my old 2.0 J1a replaced by Rainy Pass Repair in Seattle after some of the fabric was burnt by a candle. I mailed them the jacket and the patched the damaged area with the exact same GT Pro fabric. They taped up the seams around the patch area as well to prevent any delam. I'd definitely vouch for em.

@brainerd666 If only I had enough alcohol in my system to justify this when it happened...

Well, patching from a burn is a bit different than repairing a jacket suffering from delam., no? If delamination has started on a panel, it's only gonna get worse over use+time. A little patch (even well done by Rainy Pass) isn't addressing the issue of the membranes separating.

fair enough. I mean if the delaminated area is small enough, they should be able to patch it and nip it in the bud for you by removing that part of the jacket and resealing it. i had no issues with respect to the new seam tape they applied on my fix. that said it might not be worth it if its delam in multiple areas or if the jacket is beat overall

Can anyone share experiences/pics of their used J1A-GTV or J66-GTV? Curious how they've aged given the raw seams and safety vest colour.

Huh. I was talking about that with the tilak guy in like 2018 and was expecting it to be more acrnm'd out.

Extra little tidbit: It's supposed to be cobranded (as opposed to only having tilak labels).

Why bother with making a video interview if you're just going to record it in the most echo-y warehouse on the planet? +1 to reasons why to have sound crew on set or some common sense.

Anyone have spare strap keeper clips (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/DYZD-Multi-Size-Webbing-Backpack-Management/dp/B06VVXGNJF)?

Snapped the one on my 3a and trying to figure out how to avoid buying a 5 or 10 pack when all I need is one....
