In 1975, Liz and Royal Robbins designed the Billy Goat short for durable performance at a time when outdoor clothing was whatever you were wearing when you weren't inside. Its durable construction and rugged good looks have made it an essential for hiking, for travel, for life.

I have been wearing Blue Water Shorts for 30 years. Usually buying at least 5 pairs at a time. I have worn them all over the world. And wear shorts year around. It is just too bad that they are now made so cheaply. Gone is the heavy cotton canvas material. The D-ring and right pocket strap. Also the waist snap is cheap. I have had snaps on 4 pairs pull through.
Also gone is the 5" inseam. It is still available on the Billy Goat shorts. I am a real hiker, and male goucho or knicker length doesn't work for me climbing and hiking.
The new shorts last less than half as long as the old canvas shorts. As do the pockets. But then how else do they make us buy more than to make them cheap so they wear out fast. I will pay for the quality, please Royal Robbins bring it back! By the way, I am wearing your shorts now as I write this.
I will buy 5 or more pairs at a time periodically and put them away and break them out into rotation as needed.
Quit worrying about fluffy fashion trends and start building quality products that made me want to buy your products!

At what point will management read these emails about the reduced quality of the one famous Blue Water Shorts and DO SOMETHING. All state the same thing... lesser quality, thinner material, no D-ring, etc. Please fix this as they were once a short I would gladly buy, now they are not quality enough to carry Royal robin's name. He should be chastised for letting the quality of this design go downhill for so long. Fire the twits who promote profit over quality and buy Patagonia instead.

Lesser quality than the originals. Made in Vietnam (nicely) BUT with Thinner fabric, cheaper fitttings, no D ring, etc. No longer a premium short but at a premium price. Will return and darn the old ones.
