Disappointed
I usually have great luck with carhartt but these pants are not the usual quality. After just several times wearing them, holes started to appear at the top corner of each cargo pocket. I am surprised and disappointed.

Great pants, order a size larger
I really like the pants, style and design are great. My issue is they state "relaxed fit" however my 40 waist pants feel more like 36-38. So I won't be wearing them anymore and can't return them since they are "used". Definitely worth the buy, just get a size larger.

Poor Stitching
After my second wash my left cargo pocket came un-stitched to the point where the entire bottom of the pocket was a giant hole. I had to sew this up so I could continue using the pant. Everything else I like about this pant. They fit and look great and they are breathable yet tough. I now have to take them in to have them professionally sewn and reinforced to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Hate to bear bad news
I wanted to like these. Cotton rip-stop cargos are my choice for work pants at least 6 months of the year. And who doesn't like Carhartt quality?! Unfortunately, these were a little small all over, and at least a size too small in the waist. Not a problem if you're buying them in a store, where you can keep trying 'til you find what fits, but bad for online purchases. After my first day wearing them, there was a hole in each leg at the lower front corner of the cargo pocket. I wore them again and found the same thing at the upper inside corner of the right rear pocket. They look good, but are not as soft and roomy, and definitely not as tough, as I am used to getting for a lot less money. Try again, Carhartt!

Poor Quality
I purchased 2 pair of these pants on January 10, 2016 and it is now March 1, 2016. I wear each pair once a week, so I estimate 6 to 7 times so far. I work in telecommunications and already have holes in the pants. They look and fit really well and I do like that they dry fast after working in the rain but they do not hold up. I have always worn Carhartt pants for work but I will not purchase another pair of these pants. Basically I spent $100.00 to wear these pants for a couple of weeks. I hope that this in not the future quality of Carhartt.

Force Tappen Pants are great!
I work on a Heavy Armor range on Fort Bliss, Texas and I climb on big vehicles, in and out of trucks, and sometimes sit at a desk all in the course of a day.
I own and wear several pairs of "tactical" pants to work and I view the Force Pants as being more like "tactical" pants than carpenters or work pants
The Force pants have a good combination of the various festures I like in "tactical" pants
I like well-placed cargo pockets. The Force Pants cargo pockets are well designed, I like the two smaller pockets on the outside of the right cargo pocket and the zippered compartment on the left cargo pocket. I also like the "watch pocket". I really do not like when "tactical" pants have zippered or extra pockets inside any of the pockets, the simpler the better for me. The fact that the extra pockets on the Force Pants were on the outside and not the inside is a big reason why I like them. Having these extra pockets makes it difficult to put things in your pocket because they get hung up on the extra pockets, or you are trying to get something out of your pocket quickly; but instead of two front pocket you have three or four to dig through. I also like the reinforced edges on the front pockets. The only other pants I have with this feature only have a small piece of edge binding sewn on the pocket edge.

Overall I really like the Force Pants and actually look forward to purchasing more.

Nice Product
Wore the pants for outdoor work and camping excursion. As a work pant, these are very light and comfortable in warm, weather as I changed oil in equipment motors and cut firewood - would not consider these industrial grade because of thinner material. Also wore on camping trip - after full day of hiking thru streams, over rocks and thru brush, they held up well and again, were very comfortable for full day wear. Lot of pockets to hold light duty pliers, cutters, phones, etc. Overall good product, well made and would recommend for light duty construction work and definitely for any warm weather outdoor excursion.

Love this pant - why discontinue black
I absolutely love everything about the design, fit, quality... of this paint, but you discontinued "black," which I need for my work uniform. I found this out when I went to buy more at the Carhatt store. The clerk said, "I know you're not the only one who's been disappointed because they need black for work." Bring back black!

Great Work Pants
These are great work pants. Lightweight and cool yet durable. They absorb moisture and dry quickly. They are very easy to clean, stains come right out. Only issue I found was that the waist size runs a little small.

Very Rugged Pants
I was pleasantly surprised with these pants. They are rugged yet very comfortable to were in both warm and colder conditions.
The side right leg pocket has a hidden vertical zipper and slot for a pencil with Velcro flaps for easy access.
I have worn these well over a month doing projects form mending fences to doing building repair with no problems.
I would say my biggest surprise is how warm they were in the colder weather in early March here in Texas.

Hi, I was wondering what the leg opening for this in a 33" Waist x 32" Inseam?

Out of curiousity, does the leg opening for all pants get bigger, when the waist gets bigger? If so, by how much

BEST ANSWER: The leg opening for this style in a 33" waist is 17 13/16" and will have a tolerance of (+1/2, -1/2"). The leg opening will change based on the waist that is purchased. Unfortunately, it is different for each garment.
