Sooo I've got a very old Veilance jacket from when I was young and foolish and didn't know you have to wash Goretex often, and predictably it's terribly delaminated, especially on the upper back. Wondering, besides being ugly, and I guess making it easier to accidentally rip the membrane, what are the downsides of delamination? I had assumed that waterproofing goes, but I've been in downpours and even worn it into the shower. It wets out, but I'm still totally dry after? Weird, right?

UPDATE: got em
 

LC: Anyone seen these (the 2nd pic...attachments went to the bottom) before? Has the old black tags without the style info. There's a plain spellout logo tab (not the sea air land... but just straight ACRONYM) by the knee, which I'm not sure if I've ever seen...

did stumble across some similar pants without the cargo pockets, so maybe?

Might be the WS-P3a? The pocket layout and cuffs resemble it.

Think you're right about the P3A. Don't know how I forgot about those. Have the fit saved somewhere even.

Except these are in E.

currently wearing my s19-ds and wondering how the fit/patterning of the s24-ds  compares? measurements wise they seem pretty similar

coincidentally wearing mine as well. patterning is indistinguishable apart from the s19's front and center seam and the s24 is roomier, boxier and a little longer where it matters enough to consider if wearing either of them on their own.

Interesting. I’ve only owned(own) an S15 previous to the S24 and I’d presumed the 15 and 19 were more similar in fit. The 15 is much more fitted overall and has more complex shoulder patterning than the 24, and is slightly longer in the hem but shorter in the sleeve, all of which I preferred over the super boxy 24. Might need to track down a 19 now to see if it fills the gap between the two.

kinda wanted something boxier than the 19 so this is great. 

by patterning is indistinguishable do you mean the overall shape or all the shoulder darting and paneling is the same between the two shirts?

yeah i was referring to paneling, besides the front center seam and rear delt paneling, the paneling is identical

47 hoods are comically small though, i love my 47A but if I know 100% that its gonna rain, I usually go with J1A for the massive hood

There are three types of the new gtx pro but the mostly used by acr is the most breathable, not sure if there would be the most rugged for the coming winter.
