I was on the hunt for new shorts and decided to give these a shot. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I haven't had them long enough to speak to the durability, but am very satisfied thus far. I intend to order more in the immediate future.
Fit is right on. What I really like is the NINE, I repeat Nine belt loops. Most pants/shorts have only four or five. I wear shorts just about year round and these are comfortable. I also like the way the cargo pocket flap is made to tuck inside neatly when needed.
I am comparing this item to AE extreme flex cargo short. The price is roughly the same, however the materials and quality of construction of the Carhartt was much better. Second, the fit was definitely much better. The AE was size 40 and I had to wear a belt to hold them up, although I am normally size 40-44 in everything else I wear. I assume AE does this because after 40 they jump to 44. The Carhartt were true size, I ordered 40 and sent them back for 42, which fit perfectly. I expect to get many years of use and will definitely order again!
Shorts fit well, look good. Hook and loop closures on pocket flaps are a plus -- easier than snaps on shorts these Carhartts replaced, and much easier than buttons on another previous pair of another popular brand.
The shorts are nice with one exception- the were a size too small. I ordered the same waist that wear in Carhartt pants only to find the shorts were too tight. I returned them and am waiting on the credit so I can order a size larger.
