The single most important feature for me is the fact that these pants really do repel some of the most common insects. However, I was extremely sad to see that the double-button waist closure had been changed to a single-button. I was also disappointed to see that 1 of the 2 back pockets had been removed, but very pleased to see that the Velcro on the back pocket had been replaced by a zipper. I was also very glad to see that a new front cargo pocket (with zipper), and a cell phone pocket (with Velcro) had been added. Another issue: the back pocket zipper is a bit difficult to operate. Overall, though, these pants still seem to be well put together, and I would consider buying them again in the future if the 2nd back pocket and double-button closure were restored to the design.
