All day comfort and light enough for the hot weather. Wear these pants 7 days a week. Never had pants this comfortable before, tried every brand. If you're big and tall i highly recommend as they run big in their sizes. I'm a lineman and these are like a second skin, have pockets in the right places and a safe and comfortable cell phone pocket sealed the deal for me. If you live by the phrase, "I'll die with my boots on." then these are the pants that go with them.
Finish is great, fit good but I've lost weight and may need a 52 or 50" waist. 30" inseam still about 2-3" too long, will find tailor who has Nomex thread to take up excess length. Will start looking for Carhartt in local stores now that I'm getting closer to "normal"!
I ordered on a sunday and they arrived promptly on a thursday. I did this on two seperate occsions for a total of 5 pair. I got them and tried them on and I immediately loved them. They fit very nicely. I ordered the loose fit since I am not a small person. I live in south Texas and temps get a bit toasty. These pants are not as hot as most FRC clothing tends to be. They are rugged and durable. My previous FRC "Wrangler" jeans are very hot and were already coming unravled at the seams and belt loops after only a weeks use. Carhart is the way to go as far as I am concerned.
I've been purchasing FR clothing for our maintenance department Electricians for over 4 years. I switched to Carhartt about 3 years ago and have never looked back. The fit, quality, appearance and especially maintaining the size (not shrinking) over time is fantastic. I have over 50 people wearing Carhartt FR clothing and not one would change to another brand.
These pants are not loose enough in the seat and thigh area. But, really loose just below. So, if you have a thin waist and narrow thighs, but huge knees and calfs, these pants are going to be perfect for you!
