Women's, Fastest-Drying, Odor-Fighting Stretch Pants

Comfortable as an athletic pant, durable as a work pant. This new workday staple is built with Rugged Flex® fabric for stretch and recovery so they won't fall down on you, and a wide waistband to prevent gapping.
  • Super-comfortable 10-ounce, 95% nylon, 5% spandex ponte
  • Go ahead and sweat the details, FastDry® technology wicks away sweat for all-day comfort
  • Keep your nose happy: it traps and releases odors in the wash - not the air
  • Durable, stretch knit fabric fits close to the body
  • Wide, stretch waistband prevents gapping in the back and offers a comfortable fit
  • Abrasion-resistant front, back and utility pockets. Just because it's stretchy doesn't mean it isn't tough

Very pleased
I am extremely happy with these leggings. I bought them to fit smoothly under coveralls that I wear in a maintenance bay. They breathe well in warm weather and are comfortable when it’s cool. The reinforced knees are amazing as I was constranly ripping through jeans in this area. As a couple other reviews have mentioned, mine are a tiny bit too loose in the hips/waist area. I am extremely petite (5’3”, 102 lbs) and even the XS is a little loose to start and it does loosen up during the day. The good news is, the higher waist protects against any unfortunate views when they loosen up. Overall I’m extremely happy with them. Have had for a few months now, think they’ll hold up well and will absolutely buy another pair when the need arises

Absolute perfection
I predict these leggings will soon have their own religion. They are super comfortable. They are actually high enough to cover my ample behind. The pockets! So many pockets! They look nice enough to wear around town, and feel good enough to take on a hike. I recently unexpectedly wore them for five days straight when my trip to AZ to hike in the sun turned cold and rainy, and I only had these pants, which I wore on the plane, and sundresses and hiking shorts. They held up great on the trails, were comfortable from 50-70 degrees, and then when I wore them out to dinner, I just brushed the dust off and they cleaned right up! They didn’t smell, either. I was quite presentable. They’re the perfect airplane pants, too, by the way. All the pockets come in handy, and the joy of wearing leggings that look like pants on the plane can’t be overstated.

I’m 5’5” 125lbs but with a big butt and boobs (proportionally) and usually wear an XS in leggings and underwear, but sometimes I go up to a small. The small in these fits me perfectly. I would buy these in every color of the rainbow. I’m thinking of buying another pair so I have an extra. I never want to say goodbye.

My favorite trousers
The leggings are sturdy but flexible, and the pockets are wonderful. I ride my bike in them very comfortably in chilly weather. Hiking is great with these, legs are protected from prickly plants and the fabric has not ripped or stained after a year of heavy use; (part of my weekly wardrobe fall, winter, and spring.) The leggings are made of a thicker material than any regular jogging leggings, and full opaque coverage for sure in any position. I am 5'4'' and about 130 pounds, I wear the Small size and it is not too tight on my muscular legs. The waist is a little larger and looser on me, but it is a comfortable loose, and in winter it is comfortable to wear fleece leggings underneath the utility knit legging if you need the layers.
I would love more sizes available for these leggings, for example something in between Small and XSmall, (Carhartt jeans also need a size 3, the size between a 2 and a 4!!) then the pair would fit me absolutely perfectly without adding leggings underneath. I would want to have both varying sizes at hand depending on what activity and warmth I need. As a teacher, I find these leggings so perfect for carrying things in my pockets and durable for an active class!

I fully and enthusiastically recommend the Force Utility Knit Legging, I sticking to these as my go-to adventure pants!

Great product - just not for the job-site
I was so excited to see a black fitted work pant that I immediately ordered two pairs. I am 5'8" 110lbs and ordered XS. The material feels strong and durable with just enough stretch. The fit is pretty much like a jegging. I love almost everything about these but unfortunately, I can't imagine wearing this on a real job-site amongst dozens of male construction workers. This is really no fault of carhartt's, I just can't imagine walking onto a site where I already experience a steady stream of "honey's," "sweetheart's," and sleazy innuendos - in skin-tight pants. Please, pleeeaaase bring in more fitted workpants in black. P.S. Hi Vis for women!

almost perfect
I've had these for about a year, and I mostly really love them. They're great for cool, rainy days around the farm when I don't want to get chilled wearing absorbent denim . They're durable and I usually go a few wears without washing, even after I've been with the goats. I don't love them on hot days, but that's what lightweight pants are for anyway. They're also very flattering, and I LOVE all the pockets.

My only complaint is that they begin falling down after a few hours of wear, and I spend all day hiking them up. It's worse if I'm sweating, or if I have a knife or clippers in the pockets. I've been fantasizing about adding a drawstring to the waist, and I finally did it, and now I have no complaints. If Carhartt added a drawstring, elastic, or belt loops, they'd be perfect.

I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and I wear an XS (they're a little highwater on me, but I like my pants that way.)

Hard working
I originally ordered a small but found them too tight. The medium was perfect. I am 5'7" 140 slim built. My worry was tugging them up every minute or so. The first day I wore them I was in an attic all day installing ductwork and NOT ONE TUG!!! I was crawling, bending , twisting, moving up and down the ladder, in and out of service vehicle. These leggings held up ( literally), even with pockets full of tools! It's refreshing to have an alternative to wearing jeans all the time. Love my leggings and recommend them to all you hard working gals out there!

TayaR on Feb 12, 2018

I see you did not post my last question. Does Carhartt make men's pants that are "Odor-fighting" or is this just something 'special' for us ladies? I mean seriously? Are you really wanting to build a relationship with female customers that are looking for dependable work wear?
bethany on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you take a look at our Force Line (for both men and women), most of the gear has odor-fighting properties. Men's pant styles 101964 and 101969 feature odor-fighting technology as well.
These are utility pants but they don't have belt loops? Can there please be a version that is actually wearable
For woman who carry tools or

A shopper on Oct 15, 2017

Does sawdust get stuck in the fabric like it does with other yoga-pant style leggings?
Amanda M on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fabric is a fairly tight-weave and feels fairly smooth. Like almost all fabrics, sawdust could stick to them, but in most cases should be able to be wiped away easily.
What makes this fabric "odor-fighting"? Is it chemically treated, and if so, with what?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Carhartt Force® technology keeps the garment dry and traps and releases odors in the wash - not the air. It is the fabric itself, it is not chemically treated.
