According to their site, it's 2000 denier Cordura on the shoulder and elbows/forearms just like the AST, but the shapes and areas of coverage are a bit different. The elbow/forearm coverage on the AST looks like it has better placement, wrapping more around the elbow/forearm area while the GT Air seems to stay more on the oustide of the arm. Don't know about the seams.

My overall impressions of this jacket is that it's a waist-cut hybrid of their other current offerings: it seem to sit between the Voyager and Airglide. And I was hoping to see this type of jacket come along from them.
