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.

j100a - a j1a but costs 100 times as much.

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.

Can anyone tell me the differences between p16 and p24 pants besides pocket flaps.  Sizing the same/similar?  Anything else?  Thanks.

p16 is a slimmer cut in leg width and as someone said before, waist size will be diff. have both in same size (S) and i need a belt with 24, no need for belt with 16. also stacks different due to length and leg width and 24 has reinforced rear band seating, none on 16

How warm do you suppose the J68-PL is going to be? Doesn't give the density but let's assume it's the same as the J58-WS, what temperatures can one get away with with a t-shirt underneath? (obviously with the "warmth is subjective" caveats, yada yada)

J68WS has the weight of 444g, and 591g for J68PL. If assuming the overall construction and design does not change too much, that 147 grams of primaloft would give sufficient amount of insulation. I don't know much about insulations like professional ourdoor player so let me know if I'm wrong. Considering my personal experience on other primaloft insulation jacket, i can say that this insulation material could be very warm and light weight. So I would expect similuar peformance like j58WS. i've wear my other primaloft insulation undershell over longsleeve last winter in around 14 °F and I can have enough heat keeping inside. However considering the length of J68, as a rider jacket, I would suggest to wear a parka or longer shell to cover your waist part.

I wore my J58 yesterday in Colorado while it was snowing/raining at 36F/0C and I was warm enough in just a t shirt. I imagine I’ll be colder if it was super windy. Now that I’m back home in Chicago with 20F weather I’ll let you know when I get my J68 locally (fingers crossed)

I respect your opinion @leg. I just feel this season has been great. The variety, the styles, the TensionZip is sleek, the different colours. It has really appealed to me. Has this been the biggest collection since the start? What would you all like to see from Acronym in the future?

Does anyone know if(and which) stockists will carry the RAF J68-PL? I haven’t seen it previewed by any shops yet personally, so just curious if it’s a mothership fight. Need to sell some things, but a RAF jacket is on the bucket list for me

Don’t see some of the usual spots posting a preview on ig. Will keep an eye out tomorrow.

White gt does age but it isn’t as bad as some people make it out. The first white acg jacket I’ve seen sold a lot still looks like it’s holding up pretty well. I don’t see many used white jackets from Acrnm for sale though.

How well does the auxzip/wrist snap work for liner jackets? I'm comparing the J68 and the J58 to wear under a J1 for the winter, wondering how much the auxzip matters.

They do what they are supposed to do well enough. The system is is more for convenience than anything else, like being able just put on/take off one jacket instead of two. But you lose the ability to use the tighter wrist snaps on the 58 if you pan on integrating it. Again it's just option, not mandatory for full functionality. 

 

P.s. can't use interops when aux is in use. I know, devastating.

Ok, but teeeechnically you can still tighten the wrist as I've done this in sub freezing temps to keep the heat in. 

And same goes for the interops, it's idiotic to do it, but you can still use it should you be wearing a 3a as just a tumorous growth from you jacket that you take off with the jacket all at once, you just have to thread it through and likely do some abrading while wearing...:wacko2:

Neither of these are the right thing, but they are possible lol
