Acre 2015

After rigorous field testing around the world, Acre-Supply has released its Spring 2015 cycling collection. The latest offering is designed to help riders cover the most ground possible, no matter the conditions. The collection utilizes the most advanced fabrics from around the world including mil-spec stretch nylon from the USA, Italian knit jerseys, New Zealand merino wool shirts, and ultralight waterproof-breathable shells constructed in Vancouver, Canada. Created by Mission Workshop, Acre-Supply is a collection of hydration packs and apparel designed to balance the need to climb light and fast with durable protection from the elements.

Thoughtful design and attention to detail make this collection equally at home on the mountain, trail, open road, or city streets. ACRE apparel is comprised of highly articulated jackets and shorts combined with durable stretch fabrics to allow maximum movement in a minimalist design. In addition, merino jerseys and base layers provide thermal regulation and moisture management over a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The 2015 product range includes quick drying shirts, versatile pullovers, long distance padded compression shorts, ultralight waterproof-breathable outerwear, and all-mountain over-shorts constructed using durable 4-way stretch nylon.

The latest offering comes in addition to their highly regarded line of USA made weatherproof hydration packs and accessories. ACRE trail packs are designed to go anywhere in all conditions; waterproof, lightweight, and exceptionally durable.

 $455 for a jacket? Kill yourself

 It's a San Francisco based company.........they need to charge an arm and a leg just to pay the ridiculous office rent!

It's practically the business model for every SF based company. Some hipsters will buy it....Shit they wait in line for 30 mins to willingly pay $10 for a cup of coffee

 Damn hipster mountain bike enthusiasts , i guess they do bring balance to the universe. My brother in law just got a 2014 Santa Cruz Heckler for a killer deal from a parent leaching-mountain resort living-earthy granola muffin. It was maintained like garbage, but cleaned up real nice!

 How can anyone justify these prices?

 I have a sneaking feeling that the negative propping seen here on PB is reinforcing to Acre/MW that they are doing it right (as in, being a Rapha/Outlier/Aether for the mountain bike market). Just at the right time too - as weather gets warmer and days turn longer, many Men's Fitness, Outside, Men's Health, Esquire, and other trashy bibles of male conspicious consumerism will be hawking this stuff along with $12K carbon bikes and $30K motorcycles and $90K cars.

If there were unanimous positive comments from PB, they would have to go back to the drawing board.

(disclaimer: I have an Acre bag, and its pretty good)

 haha Only $62 OR $10 at Target,

Target stores will match the online price, so if you see something $1 or $2 cheaper show the cashier on your phone, and they will match it. Same concept; moisture wicking and blended material.

Seriously, a $455 dollar jacket which is a glorified wind-breaker can fcuk off. That's a new wheelset or brakes, or seat dropper and gas for a month.

 PB -- quit confusing us with a bunch roadies! Wrong crowd. "Italian knit daisy jersies" oh, sorry "jerseys".

 The ACRE line is out of my price range but I like this style of mountain bike clothing. If this were priced more reasonably, I would have no trouble choosing this stuff over the the teal moto and enduro style stuff that is out there.

Bearded model = THIS

 Let's think about this. Would you rather have a pair of xtr brakes? Saints maybe, Thomson dropper, XO 1 set (starting to be able to find these deals) or a hipster ski/moto jacket that breaths like a trash bag? Hmm... Tough choice!

 forgive my opinion but did someone bump their head when you can build a significant portion of a bike for the price of a riding outfit?

 Forgive my opinion, but is this the clothing that style forgot?

 You'd have to sell off an acre or two to be able to afford this stuff.

 It's the Rapha business model all over again . . .

 and so the hipster thing crosses the final frontier and creeps into mountain biking. and OF COURSE it had to come out of San Francisco.

 It would be great to have someone from Acre chime in here and see if they can justify these prices.

 I don't understand how a bike jacket can costs twice my ski freeride jacket that I can use up to -25°C...At -30° you don't go skiing.

 This is high-end technical wear made in Vancouver. Not sure why everyone's going ape-shit over the pricing. You can't afford it, move on...

 How "high end" can a sleeveless waterproof vest be Joeseven? C'mon man.... I've got a "high end" genuine sleeveless riding "jersey" that allows excellent airflow for the low, low price of $299.99.....Interested? In fact I've got a closet full.... come on down! Bring yer wallet!
