I buy these for my son - a master carpenter. Initially he could not believe I spent so much money for shorts, BUT now that he has worn them for 2 years, he cannot imagine wearing any other brand. The quality if top notch, he loves the placement of the cell phone pocket with a flap that keeps dust out, and they last. He says the shorts "mold" to his body, are extremely comfortable,breathable, and wrinkle-free. He now owns 10 pair. The rip stop pants are also awesome.
I love these shorts ! they are so durable and have all the right pockets for knives screwdrivers and nail guns with hooks on them. They are comfortable and look decent even after years of use ( except for the paint heheheh) I wish they would bring them back again as i have not been able to get them for a couple of years and mine are getting a little raggedy. the only thing is i wish they came in a 8.5 or 9 inch length so when i kneel down the seam wouldn't get could under my knee
I ordered these in Desert...liked em so much I ordered Moss and Coffee as well... These shorts are well made and fit great. You folks at Carhartt might as well make these in Black so I can buy a pair of those too.
I am sitting here ordering more of these shorts after having worn out the first five that I purchased more than 4 years ago. I also bought the pants version of these shorts and find them to be the best pants and short I have ever purchased. I am a Cabinet Maker, Movie Prop Maker and Automobile enthusiasts (18 Cars) I put these things through the gauntlet of hard work. I was looking at Carhartt's latest short offerings and thought that they didn't deserve to wear the Carhartt name, so I went into the dirty laundry to look at the old model number of these shorts and Violá they are still being carried. I'm ordering 5 more and my only wish is that they still carried the Desert color. Thanks Carhartt for making such a sturdy short. The reinforcements for knife or tape measure are awesome and the long narrow pockets hold a variety of Sharpie, Carpenter and Mechanical pencils. I place my wallet in the left cargo pocket and my cell phone in the right C. pocket....I'm right handed. And, lastly, I do hang a claw hammer from the loop!
I really like this product a ton. I have been wearing these shorts for 2-3 years roughly. They have a lot of pockets both small and large and I have a lot of stuff I like to carry with me so they fit that bill perfectly for the warmer months where I can't get away with a vest to carry my various necessary things for the day.
I had originally purchased them for work gear while working in the oil fields and they are very well made, take a lot of abuse and fit perfect under coveralls.
These days I am in a corporate type job and while the clothing doesn't take the same amount of abuse they still work perfectly with pockets for cell phone, keys, wallet, comb and so forth but still are presentable for the corporate environment (provided you are somewhere that shorts are acceptable attire anyway).
Great shorts, I liked them so much I bought every color.
I love carhartts because of how durable and functional they are. The pockets are nicely designed and I prefer the snap buttons to velcro or anything else. Zipper is solid and smooth. These are my new favorite shorts. If they came in more colors I would buy more. They do run small so I buy the next size up. Not really an issue though.
these could be decent shorts but they put all the pockets in the wrong place. nobody wants their cell phone right on your knee cap and nobodys cell phone can fit in that pocket. The top pockets are cut to low which makes the pockets a lot smaller. I like the idea of a rip stop reinforced pocket for your tape measure but again its to low. It needs to be up closer to your waist so its not flopping around when you walk .
Don't know the name of the material but it is the greatest. My shorts are comfortable, totally functional, and the material just lasts and lasts. Hard dirty work and washing machine, this material blows away jeans
