Great lightweight short
These shorts are extremely comfortable. They are lightweight and perfect for a hot summer. I did notice that after wearing them for a while the pockets started to wear and turn like a light grey where my phone and wallet edges pushed at the fabric. They also ran a size big in the waist. Had to go up a size for them to fit when a different pair of shorts fit in my normal size.

Nice shorts
I like the shorts they just seem to run a little smaller in size than the ones in the store because I have both. Other than that they are great. I would buy again. Unfortunately I can't find any stores selling them.

Comfortable, light weight but tough shorts
I love these shorts. They are perfect for hot, humid days where you don't want that "heavy" feeling on your clothes.

Great fitting lightweight cargo shorts
These shorts are exactly what I wanted; a lightweight pair of shorts that don't feel thick, and weighed down. The shorts feel breathable whether I'd be working in them, or out and about on a hot summer day. My only disappointment, is that they only come in Shadow and Dark Khaki, I was hoping to get a pair in Asphalt, Gravel, and Black. Nevertheless, if your looking for a lightweight cargo short, I'd highly recommend these.

Awesome shorts!
My husband absolutely loves them. Ruggedness that we love from Carhartt, but they look and feel really nice. Very glad we tried these out! Also for having several pockets, they lay nicely so the leg lines remain slim.

All pockets are better design with no Velcro to get in the way. Gonna buy another color. Would like to see made in USA cargo shorts.

What is the total length of these shorts?
Brett P on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These shorts have a 10" inseam.
Why does Carhartt not make more 13" inseam shorts? I have found only one pair, cotton, but nothing in the Force Extremes category. Why?
Brett P on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry we do not carry the inseam you are looking for in Force Extremes. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
How do these look after taking them out of the dryer? Are they a wrinkled mess or decent looking?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They look great right out of the dryer...really no wrinkles. Just fold them and they are ready to store or just them put on...there is no ironing at our house...so these make the grade for no-iron.
Are both cargo pockets zippered?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not.
What is the source of this product?
Anna C Staff on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is imported.
