    Good but not what I expected.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36"

    I wear almost nothing except my Arcteryx Palisades Shorts or long pants. Have for y-e-a-r-s. Was excited to see zippers on all pockets & ordered these. However, discovered one had cargo pocket on only one side and both had really different shaped cargo pockets that are somewhat smaller. I can not get in them what I need to carry so I returned them. STILL wish the previous ones had zippers on all pockets like the original ones but truly love the "one of a kind" ones I still have of the originals. My long ones (probably original model) have all zippers and one of my Arcteryx Palisade shorts do also.

    Top notch

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    The Palisade short and pants were revised this year. I have a pair of the previous style and this is definitely an improvement all around:

    - There is now one back pocket.
    - All five pockets have zippers. The hand pockets were not zippered before.
    - The hand pockets and the new back pocket now have meshes in them. I suppose this would help slightly with ventilation.
    - The integrated belt metal buckle is new and it works much better than the old plastic one.
    - The thigh pockets are now sown with a fold in the fabric which gives them room to expand.
    - The fabric somehow feels a little smoother than before even though the label seems to indicate nothing has changed.

    In short, a highly refined, technical, hiking short. They perform excellent.
