I had an older version of these, and while they were durable, and a great value, there were some pretty annoying shortcomings. The new version solved those problems. There are well located vents on the thigh, they added belt loops, and the front pocket openings are longer so you can get your hand back out once you have grasped the car key. The pockets also seem deeper. I was looking at another brand, and took another look at these because they had been such a good value. With the changes, I'm very satisfied with them.
