    LOL....last month, I actually had my shopping cart on bagjacks site filled with the Next Level Messenger, a laptop sleeve, AND one of these umbrellas. But went with an Acr as I mentioned before. For those who still think that bagjack is ugly, I kind of agree on the grey, and was considering it in straight black which looked much better to me.

    This post needs to be bumped.

    I'm going to rummage through that SuFu thread when I have time later, but any tiny people have experience with ACR gear? I know there are measurements out there, but with these unusual cuts and fabrics, I'm sure these won't fit the same way traditional clothing does. I'm hoping they might be more forgiving.

    I want to pick this up, but I know something hooded would be more practical, especially since I don't drive and use public transit:

    12th Man is having a sale.

    Pretty good prices and I love the garment dyeing. Nice orange colour. Very osti-esque.

    nine, you could always pick up a shadow project bomber and get the hoody attachment. all the pieces, regardless of the season are meant to fit together

    What is that?



    Does anyone know whether tailors are commonly willing & comfortable with this sort of thing?

    If I want to slim down a jacket with taped seams, should I be contacting the manufacturer instead?

    That's interesting that you posted about seam taping. From what I've heard, it needs to be done by hand and helps contribute quite a bit to domestic labor costs.

    Snow, I looked up some images of those and the way the system works out is cool. I just prefer how the ACR Bomber looks, and to be honest most of my hard goods have a bit of molle and webbing attachments anyways. It would already fit in. It's just my wardrobe went from soft shells and sneakers, to leathers and boots. I feel like I'd have to go back to wearing murdered out Nikes, if not at least something like SFB Chukkas(which are comfortable, I've used full SFBs for work the past two years). Not sure I want to go back to that lol.
