I kinda thought it would be like the p31a which were available at most stockist and still are. Wouldn’t stress about it too much.

I will not worry about that. After last restock I believe the demands on P30A are nearly fulfilled. I don't see any reason this new drop will sold out instantly. Also I personally feel that this new variation does not have that much hype as it's first show 2 years ago. P38-E looks more interesting than P30A this year for me.

Well that's good to know. I didn't really bother with the Alpha Green P31 since I was pretty happy with the black, but I really like the way Alpha Green works on these. Not to mention I do like this new alpha green versus the mint green on the J33/P10. 

I'm definitely wanting to get my hands on a size S though, which I know is a pretty damn popular ACR size. I tend to wear an S in the cropped stuff versus a medium, since I like the higher crop, since I like wearing my pants at the hip, pretty much.

It’s not the the exact same pant and it’s being released in different colors so I wouldn’t be surprised if the hot sizes sell fast. There’s almost for certain going to be more stock in general but there was also more stock of the 3a-2 sooooo...

What's the appeal of the DS tees or tank? Not particularly breathable, drape is whatever, stretch is moot, presumably smells bad when you sweat?

Pants shorts and bomber looking dope, not sure about the hoodless j1a tho, carrying a hat around clipped like that seems like a pita

S15-DS isn’t sweaty. And it does have stretch. Maybe change your diet so you don’t smell so bad when you sweat? lol

You don’t HAVE to clip the hat btw. There’s a big pocket on the front of the jacket. And other ones it’ll fit into;)

Yeah I know nobody knows if it’s the SAME DS as the S15 but it’s def not gonna be drastically different lol

Does diet change sweat smell? WTF

Also, a Dryskin T shirt is terrible for layering, you're almost always better off wearing a uniqlo airism tee for breathability. The water/wind resist is pointless when your arms aren't covered and oil spills on DWR will surely ruin your day so you can't eat with it (grease).

I get that it stretches, but who cares about that on a loose fitting tshirt? I'm tryna understand why you would do up a tee in dryskin at all, except to flex a tech fabric. (which is fine!)

Yeah idk not feeling it. Water resistant? So if you get caught out in the rain without a jacket, 60% of your upper body stays dry-ish? A windproof… tee shirt? Why not make windproof socks while you’re at it? DS is one of my favorite fabrics, for slim pants with freedom of movement (like P10s) and for more obscure uses like weightlifting (durable, low friction, stretchy). But I just don’t see it in a tee. Hard to imagine anything supplanting merino, as far as function goes.

YMMV I guess. More for you :)

Water repellent. Light rain or w/e, I can attest to that from personal experience while biking. Obviously not anything extreme, but it does the job. These aren't meant to replace your merino stuff, just add more option.

Personally not a fan of ultralight tees, much prefer tougher, heavier tees, so I'm all in for these, also nice for summer (40+ celsius) days here in Aus as opposed to sweating through your shirt and the thing staying drenched all day. End of day, different people like different things, but not much value in simply dismissing the fabric in this form because you don't want it.

Aren't you supposed to sweat through your shirt so it evaporates and cools you down? Wind resist is actually AWFUL for Australian summers. It's why ECWCS gen 3 level 2 waffle top (polartec power grid knit) is not windproof and is one of the best sweatwicking/layering materials ever in the summer.

Also Gore WS pant when? It's only a matter of time at this point. We've seen DS go to uppers and GTX to lowers, so E's hypebeast tactical move playbook should point to that next. Windproof, breathable, waterproof (off the record) so theoretically better than DS.

what I'm trying to say is that DS is TOO good of a fabric to use in the summer. merino/airism shirts not blocking wind is a feature, not a downgrade. If you don't want wind then bring a WS jacket since it'll protect your face/arms/hands. otherwise what else are slings good for

It seems that you’re discussing this very theoretical (bc haven’t worn a ds tee in real life) while brainerd666 has real life experience with it. Also it’s wind repellent, not blocking, not comparable to windstopper.
But I get your point and with my experience from -DS pants I’m not sure if this would work for me in like really hot (35C+) weather, I’m still tempted to try though haha

@Orientalq i wear DS all the time in Singapore, which has an eternal summer of 32ºC and up plus high humidity all year round. 
going out in the sun in my LA6A-DS, a tee underneath and my DS pants – no problem. 
Sometimes you really should try the product before you shit on it

Also, I'm not sure if all DS products have the Coldblack technology, but I do know that does pretty much reduce the heat absorption that black clothes normally take on when you have the sun beating down on you as well.

LA6A-DS has sleeves, the product we're talking about here doesn't. It doesn't even have a sling, or a zipper. Let me know how DS feels when you put a jacket over it. No matter how "breathable" a fabric is, layering them WILL filter the rate at which it dries. 3XDRY will be more like 1.2XDRY.

You've assumed that I'm shitting on DS when it's quite the contrary. I've praised its feat in allowing the user to stay warm while being dry. Is it better than a normal 20 dollar T-shirt (airism/merino) for aussie weather? No. If your main goal is to stay dry AND cool, then wear something more permeable. A DS Tshirt is an oxymoron. DS is great for pants and even a jacket like the LA6. Thinking a DS t shirt is anything other than a fabric flex is straight-up delusional. A quite jack-of-all-trades, master of none.

Compare it to an AIRism Micro Mesh Shirt, and it's not even close. The S15-DS will probably be cool indoors or in the fall (but even then your arms are unprotected, which will be a dealbreaker for many).

Guy calls out E's ego, privilege, and virtue signaling (he's been in "Asian solidarity" mode for weeks now) despite ignoring atrocities committed in China to Uighurs (literally 0 mentions ever since it has been known) and having a factory there which he justifies by saying it's because "I'm Chinese". 

>https://www.instagram.com/stories/erlsn.acr/2534353500877762046/

E immediately tries to dox this guy and "meet him 1 on 1", assuming he wants to put his karate skills to use for once. Calls it "white supremacy" when it has nothing to do with said person's race. It could have been an asian person writing and the message would still be the same. 

I'm Asian and I get all the sentiment but frankly, this is getting sad. 

bonus: fetishizing people by race is bad

Another little know fact (apparently) is that DS comes in various fabric weights, for different garment applications. Seasonal temps/conditions being one application, durability being another.
 

The S15-DS for instance, is much lighter weight than the DS used on the 2018 P10-DS, or the P32’s. I’ve found that the lighter weight breathes more than the heavier weight oddly enough...

It's hypocritical to say being anti-CCP equates to racism toward Asians when CCP is committing actual genocide but E seems to conflate the two. No mention of Uyghurs on his page at all, as if it's not even happening. If he's going to preach about food apartheid and climate change, real genocide must sit somewhere on that table, right? I'm thinking maybe it's because E has financial ties in China (factories, business, whatnot, fear of blacklist). When someone points it out to him, E meets that person with  physical threats (albeit indirect), doxxing, and labels him a white supremacist to his 181k followers . It's like a white supremacist claiming to be a victim of reverse racism while also ignoring police brutality. 

I'd also prefer if you didn't ask your questions with ad hominems.

Twitter advanced search comes in handy. Mind telling me how my point is incoherent? I don't see how doing research hurts my case.
