don't overlook these shorts because they are in the men's section. The 28/29 is the equivalent of a women's 4/6 shorts. They aren't bulky in odd places and you won't look like you're wearing your big brother's shorts. I chose the 10" inseam because short shorts look unprofessional. The canvas is lightweight but tough. It is cool and dries quickly. A good choice for professional horticulturists. Carhartt, please give women more choices in shorts.
The best pair of shorts I own, and I own 2 pairs of these and planning on getting more soon! The only problem I have is they don't shrink like my waist line has in the past couple months! They are great work wear in these 100º + 100% + temperatures when out working around the truck and if you sweat like I do, they don't stain or even show the sweat! Keep the colors coming too, would like to see some in navy blue, black, olive, dark brown, etc... ;)
I love these shorts. I've been wearing them for over 10 years and won't buy anything else. They hold up well, look nice, but most importantly, I love the two side pockets. I put my reading glasses in one pocket, and my cell phone in the other. Please Carhartt, don't ever take those side pockets away!

Not durable at all
I install solar panels for a living and very busy these days. If you are looking for the durability of perhaps coveralls, these shorts are definitely not similar. They looked great out of the box, all the pockets I wanted but 2 months into wearing them the front right pocket has 2 holes. I have had to duct tape it or my tools will start falling through. If you are looking for a pair of shorts to abuse then don't waste your money on these.
Saw these shorts at my local Tractor Supply store. They look thick like they will last, but there's no way that I'm paying thirty bucks for something that's made in China. I can buy foreign made shorts at Walmart for half the price that will last just as long. I don't mind paying the extra for something that's made in the USA.
