Yeah, was kind of annoyed when I learned the J28-WS doesn't feature a two-way zipper. Thought it would've been typical by now since every other acr jacket I own has it.

Still wish the last iteration j36 had one

The flak pocket as partial closure is great don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I want just the hem to break a little

Damn the 3A-1 multi and black-foil are rather disappointing...

Just like that, the multi is gone lol

foil olive looks nice, black version is too loud for me.

These "new" foil material might looks better in smaller size like 3A-MK or MZ series as adding some details to the single color bag/jackets. But making a big bag like 3A5 with this repeated pattern all around...idk they looks bad to me.

Insane. He replaced the original olive straps/webbing with shitty pistachio cw. 

Taobao vibes.

On the bright side, looks like the foil is just reversed xpac, which should be way more durable than the previous foil.

It's genius, you can't rep something that already looks like a rep

Foil was always just reversed xpac. Durability (or lack of) will be the same.

Copped that black and olive 3A-2 (X-Pac). The olive foil is nice, but that inner bag design on the outside on the black version just seemed really bizarre to me. 

3A-2 is probably my favorite daily ACR bag, and my current version was getting pretty beat.

Can someone give me the use case for 3A-2? Genuinely curious. Powerbanks, phone, wallet, and...? Is it big enough for anything else? Would look good as a fashion statement, don't get me wrong. Also, reverse foil resembles a snake pattern which is nice, a lot better than the previous trashbag aesthetic. (If you bought the multi-color for reasons other than reselling I hope you get your eyes checked lol) I hope someone one day collects all the multi-color pieces and makes a fit out of them.

I use it as my daily work bag. The little mini pocket on the inside fits my wireless earbuds case perfectly. I can also fit my wallet, a small notebook and other reading material, phone charger, and all my other essential EDC stuff. The 3A-2 I break out if I just need to bring the essentials with me, and I'm not going to be needing the larger capacity of my 3TS. 

It's best as a light carry, essentials satchel.

I love the variety in colors this drop, very nice. Multi is definitely not for everyone but I hope anyone who copped it genuinely wanted it.

Multi reminds me a little too much of those paint by numbers Star Wars kits with the glow in the dark paints from the early 80’s crossed with Aliens(TM) aesthetic

but not in a good way

3a-2 non foil version would be my five stars 3rd-arm recommandation for newbee, good for a mask pouch with a decent price (same as last this model drop's), and the best is, the stock lasts.:smile:

Didn't notice at first and was considering getting one of the new "black" bags, but now I can't unsee this ...

I wonder how noticeable it actually is - would appreciate if anyone who copped could post some pics.

yeah I had the previous all black version but ending up letting it go because it was "too black". The olive detailing is exactly what I wanted so I had to melt my cop freeze for it LOL

Not long now until we have multi colour pants. Probably p30 with multi colour cargo pocket and swappable cuff sleeves

yikes...

i think multi is fine. glad they're finally trying new stuff beyond the typical black/raf/olive greens

 

would be stoked to see a multi pant if the colors are distributed in a similar patchwork style as the black j1b-multi (black/white/dust)

 

mismatched zipper teeth and pulls would've been *chefs kiss* on the 3a-1-multi. can't wait to get mines in so i can play around with the pockets

3A-2 is my elite level epi pen holster. Spending that much on a pouch for an adrenaline shot is just as ludicrous and unnecessary as my body’s over reaction to certain proteins, so it feels weirdly well balanced :ph34r2:

Move to the Us and the 3a is a reasonable price compared to an epipen
