Rated 3 out of 5 by PitPat from Scaled back from previous version I have two pairs that I purchased in the summer of 2017 that are great because of two unique features-- zippered pockets at the waist and gusseted cargo pockets that increase the pocket's volume and make them easy to use. I recently purchased a pair (2018) and discovered that there is now only one zippered pocket and the cargo pockets are sewn flat onto the shorts. Additionally, some of the buttons have been replaced with snaps. These changes might seem trivial, but those features were what set these apart from the literally thousands of other brands of shorts one could buy. These are still well-constructed, but they're now like every other brand at this price point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3rdrail from Questionable Quality, Features I like the Allagash Series of clothing for appearance and style. 65% of customers apparently will recommend these shorts. But 35% will not. I have been a part of that 35%. That is a significant percentage of unhappy. Bean needs to change that. Keep the favorite features of your products. Zippers or Velcro instead of buttons on pocket flaps for example. I like shopping at Bean, visited the store at 11:00 PM, I live on the West Coast! I went out of my way to see the Big Shoe in front of the store. Tell your manufacturing engineers to listen to customers and quit messing up good products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ShortsAllYear from Not what it used to be Frankly dissapointed. Have been wearing the Allabash shorts for years due to the large secure zippered and buttoned pockets. Wore out another pair and ordered without looking too closely (I know mea culpa) and found to my dismay a single smaller zippered pocket and instead of buttons there's now some fairly flimsy looking snaps. And all the pockets seem smaller also. These used to be 5 stars for me, but now 2 stars or so. Would really like to have the good design back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ventureman from They changed them This is my 7th pair of these shorts and they REALLY changed them. First off, no more double zipper pockets on the sides, just one. Second, no more buttons only snaps. The double zippers were great for security pockets. I travel a lot and always felt like pick pockets would have a hard time getting into these. Same with the buttons, hard to get into, but I liked the security that they provided. These will be my last pair, I'm sorry to say.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pjh101487 from Not the fit, material nor function of originals Have the Allagsh pants and shorts that I ordered previously and they are outstanding. This pair I just received are so inferior to the the originals I feel cheated. They lack the same fit, material, and features that made the originals so great. Fit is actually uncomfortable and I’m not a big guy. The cargo pockets and back pockets lack the bellows featured on previous Allagash pants and shorts which leaves little room for the pockets to be as functional as before. This makes movement in them very restrictive as well. There’s only one zippered front pocket where there used to be two. The material used is also completely different and far inferior to previous Allagash items. LL Bean you’re making it hard to stay loyal customer, really hard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sgm228 from New Design - Snaps Instead of Buttons The Classic LL Bean Cargo Shorts style with buttons on pocket flaps is no more. The sturdy buttons on the pocket flaps have been replaced with a lesser quality snaps design. What I liked most about these cargo shorts was the safety provided by pockets that buttoned closed - preventing something from falling out during active movement, or while in a crowd. Snaps are easily popped open. Too bad. These shorts were perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Athelstan from What did you do? The old model was much better. - “ Generous side cargo pockets and two back patch pockets - all with snap-closing flaps.” Is it an improvement ? As I travel all over the world, I am afraid the pickpockets will be delighted by the snaps if I ever put anything in these useless generous (but smaller than before) side cargo and patch pockets : buttons are more difficult to undo. - a zippered security pocket on the right side : the old model had two zippered security pockets (one on each side) which were larger (11in versus 8in) which enabled me to have my passport and some cash in one and my wallet in the other, when I was abroad... Please bring back the old design of the Allagash cargo pants and shorts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hookedshopper from Not the same The new shorts have no zippered pocket on the left side now, and although the right side still has a zippered pocket it's half the size. Also, instead of secure buttons on the pouch pockets they are small snaps. Very disappointing. Pockets are now so much less useful as they used to be. Bring back both large zippered pockets and buttons!
