Kickass.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I practically live in these things. I have two pairs that see near constant use in the summer. I paddle board, swim and sometimes hike in them. I actually ran a 10k in my older pair. I guess the only thing I haven't used them for is actually surfing. Very comfortable, the seams were well thought out. I've never had a chafing problem.

They have a slimmer fit and don’t balloon out at the waist. They dry fast and the bottom of the pocket is sewn with a mesh panel that drains nicely. Another detail I like is that the drawstring is sewn to the waistband so you don't have to worry about pulling it through and losing it (you can see it in the picture).

And the patterns are pretty sweet. I've received multiple compliments on them.

This is a great tool to have on you. The knife blade is readily accessible unlike most tools which require the user to open the pliers. It's like carrying a knife with the added benefits of a multitool. The footprint is comparable to a traditional pocket knife.
It's lightweight, compact and has only the most necessary features. The bottle opener/carabiner is great. It also allows for easy use of lanyards and dumby cords for retention. And the wiregate conveniently grabs the cap for you when you open a beer.
It is built well and has survived years of use and abuse. With a little maintenance it will remain reliable even in and around water.
