Yeah, agreed on really cold weather footwear. When it gets that cold or I'm doing outdoor winter activities I use my Arc'teryx Bora2 GTX with the insulated liner, works perfectly. It also doesn't look bad, but a little bulky for my day-to-day wear.

Let's face it, who look more daft, the person swanning and skidding around in their $700 fashion pumps or the person happily trudging through the snow and slush in their old waterproof duckboots?

 

Count me in the latter any day!

100% man. I guess if day to day wear means trudging through snow theres not much choise. Old waterproof duckboots it is. The only boots i own atm have that white vibram wedge sole on em and I swear they will be my death. Curling shoe level slipperyness.

Need to up my insulator game for this winter. Currently looking at the Veilance Mionn IS and Nike ACG Metamorphosis jacket as liners under acronym shells. I like the convenience of being able to attach ACG insulators into acr jackets but figure the Mionn is much better quality and warmer. Any opinions on one vs the other from folks with experience with these pieces or other suggestions appreciated. Ideally would like to get a J58-WS but not an option atm.

Ah, you're the infamous legendary creator behind this piece of art. It's made its rounds through the techwear community already. Super funny and well done.

Anyone here have any experience with the Arcteryx Mainline Rico shacket? Looks like a pretty dope down filled shirt jacket, which imo looks way cooler than the Cerrium. Apropriate for urban cold weather condition as well as more outdorsy stuff. Am I right or not?

I tried one in an Arc store some time ago. I like the concept of this jacket but for my understanding the insulation is not enough for anything but a slight fall breeze. The fit is nice (but not exactly super slim - which is ok for me) and qualitywise there are usually no complaints when there is Arcteryx written on it.

Damn. That’s a shame. I take it you know that from personal experience with the jacket? Do you know if it’s a well known problem regarding the construction, like the crotch tears on the Veilance pants, or might you have been an unlucky cat with a bad sample?

That specific jacket is from Arc'teryx's infamous "24" line—their urban stuff from mainline, sort of the poor man's Veilance—which is almost always garbage. Let's just say I know a few people who would be in a position to accurately judge the rate of failure of these pieces. That jacket ("shacket") and the Therme/Patera parkas have (I'm told) more problems than virtually any other garment currently sold by the brand. It's Voronoi AR-level failure, except that the Voronoi's are produced in much more limited quantities, so...

That being said, if you're looking for a nice clean down jacket, there'll be one coming in Veilance in FW18.

I really want a wool  fleece mid layer, but I can't seem to find anything that fits the bill. Anything new is either 100% synthetic or best case 63% wool (Outlier). I'm on the hunt for a size 3 iris liner, but are there any other options out there? 

 

It doesn't have to be exclusively wool, but only natural fibers.

That's what I'm saying! Everything is synthetic fibers.

I found a Filson liner that's all wool, but it's a bit boxy in fit.

Take a look over at Klättermusen Kvaser Hoodie or the stuff made by icebreaker. Maybe they offer some considerable pieces.

The ACG cargos of this year look exactly the same as the last two previous years (2015 & 2016).

Can anyone else spot a difference besides the logo near the heel?

FW15 and FW16 were almost identical except the different colors and lack of belt loops on fw16 (from what I know, I dont own fw15). FW17 seems to have a different pocket configuration (at least the right cargo pocket looks to be placed differently), there is the reflective logo inside the leg, no zippers to expand the hem opening, and belt loops are back.

There was also a noticeable fabric upgrade from fw15 to fw16.

could be wrong but it seems like they took out the drawstring on the cargo pockets this season. worst "feature" of the previous iterations imo.

Got a good deal on a pair of ACG Woven drawstring in sz L. I like oversized pants, love p17s. Im 6foot 165lbs, 30"waist. Will L look okay or should i stick with M? Anyone with experience?

IIRC nike size chart says size S covers up to a 32 in waist, so I wouldn't go any higher than size M. Im the same size and I have acg cargos in M and the drawstring gets kinda annoying at times with how tight I have to pull it.

Their Lima Jacket from 2 seasons ago, which seems to be back, is still on my mind.
