Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I've worn these shorts for 10 years or so, gone through 4-5 pairs, surfing, rivers, swimming, diving, hiking, kickin'it...The old ones were the best; 2 HUGE cargo pockets with zippers, a zippered back pocket, two mesh front pockets. A full cut. A comfortable, stretchy mesh liner. Add a stretchy belt with a bomber ladder-lock buckle, these short never came off once.

Now, the Snake River "11" shorts are here. Reverse everything I just said; only ONE zippered pocket (in a river short?), and it's too small to put anything in. All the other pockets "close" with the smallest piece of velcro you've ever seen. The belt stretches no longer and has a cheap, flimsy buckle that comes apart at the smallest movement. Worse of all, if you're a man, the mesh liner is cut so tight and is so non-stretchy that your junk feels like it's being squished in a vice.

Like I said: used to be great. Now just cheap and a rip-off, IMHO

I've worn two of these shirts for years; they are my favorite winter shirts and still look like new after a gazillion washings. I ordered a new one this year and it was too tight! I laid it over an old one and there was a full inch less fabric on each side. I wound up giving it to a skinny friend.

I wore last year's model for a whole season, but the lack of a double-zipper caused me to send it back; sitting on the chair or in a car the jacket puffs way out because you can't unzip the bottom. I tried this year's jacket and the fabric is very stiff and the chest pocket hard to access; why no zipper like last years. A good jacket but for the zipper.
