Typically see these in Snow or Ski Jackets as a "Snow Skirt". Prevents snow from entering from below and into the jacket when you're shredding the gnar.

And the snaps hanging are to attach it to your snowpants for maximum gnar sealage

Seems like a good buy for snowboarders except for the exclusive pricing/stock quantity. Acronym enthusiasts would dig this throwback but the actual use case remains unknown... Meanwhile, Arc'teryx Rush does the same but at half the price. Also, High-vis might be desirable for Snow-use vs all black...

http://aexo.thebrain.com/video/S1359-descent.mp4 major finding with the brain update along with more puzzle pieces for my team to try and solve. Its a 24 minute video and has credits at the end.

EDIT: Team has solved another bit, there were 32 tracks that had to be manipulated. When we did it properly we got a full Album by an Artist name Clouds. Errolson can be heard twice. More info within 7 days.

I think it was mostly just a fun milestone marker. Like I haven’t seen a good image but it looks like that graphic inside is XX (20) with an eagle (Germany) and lion (Czech).

curious what the bottom module of the jacket liner is about, looks like it can be detached with buttons so more optional seal protection?

seems just a powder/wind skirt as mentioned before that snaps shut at the front.

Also on the topic of acrnm/Tilak this is errolson designed. The original concept was gtx wool but that was apparently too crazy for buyers...

Is there anyone who's around 5'10" that owns the P35-DS? I'm kinda torn between getting the S or the M. I normally wear a 30 inseam in dress pants and jeans.

This would be my first full length ACR pant that isn't aggressively tapered toward the ankle like with the leg cuffs on the P23 series, so.

They just recycled the J1B-S one.

Insane & exceeds my expectations. White>Dust>Black>Raf imo. What's everyone's thoughts on the J1B-GT?

The bi-color J1B looks great, so does the orange hood with black one. Will be a hard decision between those two colorways, or maybe my wallet will stop me first :D

Acronym is the best thing about this year.

Feeling the same.

At least it’s a solid season to me but considering the shitty world situation basically these nicely build high pricing garments were only benefit for acr team, and workers(hopefully).

But damn that’s what fashion industry is about for.

Does anyone know what time drops usually happen, or is it just some kind of shock drop type thing? 

I'd love to get the Bi-Color J1B and P31, but I bet they would be sold out within 5 minutes.

Maybe I got bored after 9 years, but none of this is exciting same as J28, J36, J47A, CP2-SS, P10, P23A, P24A etc were. Just don't feel current vibes, last great season for me was FW-1516, pretty much all killer no filler.

I'd argue last great season for me was SS18 in retrospect. But it is cool to see them add more color as that's what many of us were clamoring for back in the days when the only colors available were black and raf green. Maybe the designs will take some time to grow on people as it has often been the case in the past. I think it's highly unlikely we'll relive the days of FW16, FW17 where things sold out in less than 30 seconds but I think that had more to do with Nike-related hype than the strength of the products themselves. 

One thing I'm really curious though is what happens once Acronym product codes reach 3 digits. There's gotta be a landmark product/event for that.

Does anybody know if the lower pockets of the j1b also expand to the back like detached entry pockets or only to the front? Thanks for any insights.

I've never worn any profile fit ACR jackets, so I'm wondering if I should size up, or stay my normal jacket size with something like the J68-PL? I wear an L in my J1A/GT-J34, and also my former J47R, which all fit Straight.

I weigh around 220lbs and am 5'10" 

Should I size up to an XL in the J68 due to the profile fit? Or should I just stick with the large?

For reference I’m 6’3 and float between 205 and 215 depending where I am in my training for a sport and I wear an XL in the J1L-GT and my J58-WS. I tried a L in both and it was a bit too snug.

Would it cause any problems if I were to wear the J68 in an XL inside of a size Large shell at all? I've never really bought a liner/insulator jacket to wear underneath a hardshell, so this would be my first one if I were to get it. I'm not sure if you should be sticking with the same size as your shell, or if you can size up in the insulator an still be fine.

That I can’t answer. Maybe sleeve length would be an issue but I assume it would be as simple as comparing measurements. It could also be far less simple as that.
