1-they are comfy 2- they run slim soo big boys size them up 3- they dont last that long!!!!!they seem too tip from the b ottom! 4-they dont seem too last that long i bought 2 pairs and both of them lasted only 6 months!
The Carhartt shorts have performed very well. They are very rugged though wash up with ease. With more than 3-months worth of use, these shorts have exceeded my expectations. I will be purchasing more in additional colors.
These short are a nice alternative to B147 (my favorite, for which I give all 5 stars.) But I don't like the synthetic flex part of the fabric. It feels hotter to me than all cotton. Won't buy them again because of that.
Bought 3 pair of these new blend shorts last summer, and notices they couldn't take any snagging or work related wear. During the second summer of wear holes wore through at no stress points. This pare didn't last two seasons. Going back to the old brands.
I do think that these shorts are durable and look good. I am very hard on my work clothes and move a lot. These shorts would be five stars if they were not so long. I like the way they hug my hips and legs, but don't like the feel of them near my knees. I'm going to try the shorter force shorts and see how that goes. Right now I buy these and pay a seamstress to shorten them.
I have close to twenty pairs of these shorts and their pant counterparts and have one complaint that is consistent, regardless of which item I'm buying. The sizing does not run true. I first tried on a pair of 34" waist Rugged Flex Dungarees in a store and the fit perfectly and were extremely comfortable. They only had two 34" waist in my inseam and I bought both pairs. A few months later I ordered three more pairs on line of the same product and size one was markedly larger around the waist, several inches in fact, one ran the same size as the other two I'd already purchased and the third was around an inch smaller than. This has continued for the past year or two with every order I've placed. No two pairs are the same and this is 100% a QC issue that needs to be addressed. The product is a good product and a good value, but customers shouldn't have to return or live with what should be a basic QC check on every product the company puts out.
Bought these shorts after going through way to many of the OTHER cargo shorts. The main button is made of brass and not going anywhere like the others that are plastic and sewn on. The cell phone pocket could not be more perfect to hold an over size phone with a case on it. BEST shorts ever. People are saying they don't fit true to size, but mine came in perfect. Tight at first but broke in after a couple of washes
I've been a long time wearer of carhartt products. If you are like I am you burn thru pants and shorts at a very high rate. I wear pants or shorts all week and wash on weekends so they get overused. I also wear them all day at work as a carpenter. Here's my tip. Spend the extra $20 and get the double front rigby pants and cut them into shorts....they'll last twice as long! They rugby is not quite as tough....but worth it in comfort! Thanks carhartt....love you guys!
I bought a size 38 two months ago, and it was little tight after washing it once (they measured 37-1/2). I needed a second pair, so I bought a size 40, thinking these would be perfect -- but after washing, they measured 43-1/2.
Carhartt has excellent customer service, so I called, and we discussed the problem -- and they offered to replace the 40. We decided that the original 38 was mis-sized and was actually a 36. They thought the 40 was also mis-sized and was actually a 42.
All I wanted was a short that measured 40 inches after washing, so we decided to try a size 38 (again). It arrived today, and after washing, it measures 42-1/2 inches (4-1/2 bigger than marked). This time I just threw them away, because I don't want to go through this size mess again.
I did, this time, determine that they shrink only 1/2 inch when washed. I still have the slightly tight size 38, and think it's an excellent short, and I love the tarmac color. If/when my local Carhartt store carries this short, I will buy another pair -- no more online buying for me.
Very comfortable shorts that match the durability of all Carhartt products. Great price as well, these have replaced all of my other "khaki" or dressier shorts as well because they are cheaper and more comfortable.
A week after purchasing the Carhartt Men's Rugged Flex Rigby Double Front Pant and finding the 36W x 34L to be the most comfortable work pant ever, I jumped right in for 2 pairs of the shorts version for my remodeling business here in Florida. Wrong! Bad Move!
Whatever size template is being used for the long pant it didn't carry over to the shorts, not even close, can't even button up the waist on the shorts no matter how hard I pull. Major disappointment on the heels of what was a great experience with Carhartt.
A good fit and is made of tough material for what I hope to be many years of use. These shorts are very comfortable to wear and have enough pockets to store my wallet and other things I need. Give them a try and see for your self.
I'm a window washer. These shorts didn't last four month. Holes where my bucket on a belt sit, And holes on thigh area from thorns snagging my shorts I guess. I expected long lasting durability from Carhart.
Very nice. Love the more flexible, lighter weight material with fewer pockets. Easier ironing. A sophisticated look if you will. I wish you had more colors especially in the 13 inch in seems. I pray for you to add and continue the new line !!!
These shorts are very nice and the stretch movement is fantastic, really comfortable. Im 6.4 and slim, ordered the 32 which is my normal Carhartt size but these are definitely larger. They still fit but have to wear a belt or they slip off my skinny butt. The waist almost feels like is flairs out at the top. The length is good just sitting above the knee, the leg width is just ok, a little to slim fitting for me in general but the stretch make up for that.
I was looking for a good pair of work shorts that I could wear around town too. These shorts are a perfect fit for both. They are both casual and functional. They fit well and are the right length. The material seems very durable as well. I bought multiple pairs in different colors. I'd recommend these shorts to anyone.
