I wore the Carhartt Rugged Flex Rigby Shorts from June to September last year without any issues. I ordered the comparable pant in the Fall (this one), but within a month the back pocket was worn through. The back pocket needs to be stronger.
I ordered a pair of these back in the end of last year in 36x30. Fit snug but loosen up through out the day. Just ordered two more pants in the same size, fit totally different. The waist is much larger then my first pair. Returning to size down.
I've got large muscular thighs (Rugby) that usually bind up when bending or sitting. This usually requires me to size up on the waist and they still bind, but these so far have been great. I still sized up on the waste, but I'm able to move freely. I'd recommend this for anybody looking for more fitting work pant or casual pant that allows them to still move.
I like carhart products, however like previous review carhart never has sizes for taller big men in 36 length..same as bib overalls...Not everybody is 30-32-34 Length... you're losing a lot of customers because of this ...
Ordered two pair rugged flex rigby 5 pocket, I was happy with the look and fit , so i ordered two more of the same style and size. The pants in the second order were so tight i had to return them. I then ordered two more of the same style and size, and 1 pair fit ok and the other was way to tight. Come on carhartt, buy a ruler. Im done playing this game.
I tried on these pants in size 40x30 and they were too tight. My normal size in all my other Carhartt pants (i have about 6 old pairs of all different styles) is 38x30. The pants did not fit. I went up a size to 42x30 and they fit great, very comfortable and look awesome. These were in Hickory color, so i thought i would get a pair in Gravel as well. I grabbed the exact same size and they were far too big, far is an understatement. so in case it was a one off pair, i tried on two other pairs in gravel and all were enormous! I went down a size and they were too tight. Why are the sizes so different in the different colors??? Because of this i don't feel i can buy a pair of carhartt pants online now, because you really have no idea what size would fit and what would not. you cannot base the size on another pair of pants that you own, not even the same pants in a different color! Carhartt, i have a ton of your stuff and i love your stuff, i really do, but issues like this are crazy! i wish you could do better because i really want to wear your clothes!!!
Like the material, quality control needs some work.
I have been wearing Carhartt clothing for years. They discontinued the double knee twill pant that I normally wear so I decided to try these. The look and durability is good but the fit is poor. I ordered 2 pairs to try. The first pair fit perfectly, roomy and comfortable. The second a little different but ok. I decided to order 5 more pairs. 5 out of the 7 pairs fit differently as if there is no particular measurements for the fit at the factory. These are supposed to be relaxed fit but the legs are tight on some and relaxed on others. The material shrinks up after even a low drying cycle but tends to stretch a little once worn. Still the fit is more like a pair of skinny jeans rather than a relaxed fit work pant on the majority of the pairs I received. I have worn them for 3 months now and I am shopping for a replacement, again. At $40 each, I think they can do better.
Good pants, i have two pairs in 34/30, grey and brown that i mostly for work in the kitchen. The pant runs slimmer than the usual carhart parachute pants, but still leaves some room to move. The side pocket is wide enough to fit your hand in for getting stuff out, unlike the hammer/tool pockets on the traditional pants, so if you have some change or your keys in the pocket they can be easily accessed (i mostly use it for a quick dump pocket for pens, keys, change as it isn't quite big enough for a modern smartphone to fit fully in the pocket without worry of it falling out)
And while i like the lightweight fabric, i would like to see some classic ducks pants in the relaxed fit, as i am not a big guy and the "original fit" just looks silly on me, and there is so much extra fabric that it gets in the way
I really love the fit and flexibility of these pants. I can’t quite comment on the durability just yet as I’ve only had them for a couple of weeks. My only criticism so far is the fifth pocket. It is nothing like the pocket on any other Carhart pants and is rather useless. It’s not deep enough for anything other than a little flip phone. Also the top of the pocket where the seams and reinforcement are gets all bunched up inside the pants. You end up with a big wadded up mess on the side of your leg. I usually like having the leg pockets on my Cathcart pants but the way this pocket is made, I would rather just not have a pocket there.
I love how well these pants flex with my movements. I am a furniture maker and often find myself crouching around projects and these pants move without restrictions, and they are quite comfortable as well.
Ordered my size, same size I wear in all my other Carhartt pants, and they are easily 2 inches too short. They look like high waters. I don't wear them often(maybe 10 times in 8 months), but the color is still faded. Also the material is thin, which I somewhat expected being a flex fit, but these wouldn't hold up to frequent wear. Rating would have been higher if it wasn't for them being so short.
I got these for work because of the flex, I like the ability to move freely these pants provide. I don't feel like the fit is good, one size is just too big for me, the other too small. Other than that, the pants seem durable and of good quality. I prefer the cryders but these are a good pant too.
I find thsee Carhartt work jeans very comfortable I bought 3 pair and I do plan on buying more in the future once these I got wear out if they ever do because I find Carhartt clothing so durable and relaxing that if I would say that Carhartt done the job Right they have Pride in their work.
Definitely one of my favorite CARHARTT products! They are so comfortable with the “Rugged Flex Technology” A few months ago I had one pair of these, I now have 8. These pants are a game changer with their performance and quality. One of my favorite things with the pants is the versatility of them. The pants have a look that you can not only work in comfortably and effectively, but dress them up for a night out on the town or dress them down with some chucks and a t-shirt. The pants fit extremely well!! They say relaxed-fit, but have more of a straight cut look and feel without loosing the mobility of a looser fitting pant! Carhartt definitely raised the bar with these pants!
I would love to see home additional color options in these, definitely need the DARK CEDAR, a NAVY, a Olive Green maybe even a white or egret color for “painters” or just a sleek color you can dress it up with
Have been a long time wearer of another style Carhartt pant that has been discontinued. Thought I'd give these Rigby 5 Pocket pants a try. I ordered two pair; Hickory and Gravel in 33" x 34". I received both pair and tried on the Hickory first. Good initial fit. The Gravel pair were way to tight in the waist to the point I could barely button them. I washed the Hickory pair and they still fit very well. Not very satisfied that the same pants in different colors fit so differently. Not likely to order from Carhartt directly again.
Love these pants, went to order more in tan and in true Carhart fashion they are being discontinued in this color. I have the Rigby Flex Pants in model number 102291 and they don't fit the same as these. I have muscular legs and a smaller waist so finding pants that fit is really difficult and these were great.
I had ordered these for my boyfriend a while ago when he was on the hunt for the perfect work pants. He loved them so much that we had to order more. We actually ended up at our local store to get a couple of pairs so he didn't have to wait for them to ship :) They are perfect for construction - paired with the Carhartt Baseforce Xtreme Lightweight boxer briefs!!
