Curious, does your DS still bead when cared for that way? 

Yep. It’ll definitely bead more persistently with a fresh DWR application. Repetitive washes will diminish that obvs. But the quick drying characteristics are entirely fabric dependent and performance is unaffected, wash temp/dry temp or otherwise ime.

That's insightful. I've been relying on dry cleaning for any of my Dryskin pieces. I've also been super curious about whether or not to eventually reapply DWR to DS pants, and see conflicting feedback about that for some reason.

What do you guys use to reapply DWR to DS?

I remember reading that the DWR on DS is some proprietary substance that only works with DS. 

This is exactly what I have read about it. But I would love for someone to prove that reproofing is a thing.

3xdry should last for around fifty washes at a warm temperature -- 40°c

reactivated using a tumble dryer or iron, personally i use an iron, works for me.

I spray it with grangers (as if it were a shell) and it reactivates the fuck out of the water resistance. My Acronym DS pieces do pill slightly over time but I think that's gonna happen either way.

So many people have them at this point, I don't think it really matters anymore tbh. Retailer leash has loosened up significantly, it seems.

Here's one I missed. I'm not entirely sure what it is, but I've heard that it could be a new NG4 with different coloured zip options. Personally, I'm most excited for the new J16. It looks really good in Alpha Green. My guess is that it's going to be similar to the recent J69 with what looks like stretch panels and could get a -HY suffix. But what do I know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Anyone else have a favourite or a planned purchase? I haven't seen the alleged new P23s yet but if they do drop, I'm definitely going to be trying to get a pair of those.

Much welcomed loose fit on the J1A -- never personally liked the fit on the later iterations. Also digging the return of the old-school flap on the flak pocket; hated the look of the exposed zipper on the last one.

That said, it sounds crazy, but I think I'm at the point where the exposed zipper designs of late have been holding me back from acquiring a lot of the newer pieces. Aquaguard coils are an absolute pain-in-the-ass to open with one hand and always feel like the zipper pull is about snap off when I try to do so.
