Rugged Flex®

Rugged Flex

Carhartt Rugged Flex® technology moves and stretches with you throughout the day so that whatever you're doing, it's easier to do.

Rugged Flex® garments must meet the Carhartt's defined standards for stretch, recovery, and durability, so when you put on a Rugged Flex® garment, you know it won't let you down. You'll find Rugged Flex® in shorts, shirts, pants, jackets, and boots because you need gear that helps you move, not gear that holds you back.

Finally found the idea jeans for work!
They fit true size and are comfortable. You might have to give it a month to expand a little if you have bigger thighs like me. I'm 5'-3", 135lb and usually wear size 4. I ordered these in size 4 Short and they fit great. finally found the ideal jeans for work that don't look too masculine and are not skinny either. Highly recommended.

Multiple tears 8 months in
After 8 months these jeans have two tears, including a tear where the back pockets are stitched on. I work in a desk, so I can't imagine how fast these jeans would wear out with someone doing actual manual work. I bought these jeans because I thought they might last longer than cheaper jeans. To be fair, their 8 months lifespan lasted 2 months longer than the 6 months my Reitmans jeans lasted, so congrats I guess? My next pair of jeans will not be from Carhartt.

Comfortable & Durable
I have bought these in two different sizes as I lost weight. I wish that Carhartt still carried this style. I really do find them comfortable and durable. Better than some other jeans I have found. These are my favorite pairs of jeans.

Much looser and longer than I expected
I purchased a size 18 (one size smaller than my usual size in other brands), hoping for a good fit. I continue to be surprised at how much larger Carhartt sizes are than the other brands I purchase; i.e., Levi's, Wranglers, etc. Even after washing and drying on hot temp, I found the Women's Rugged Flex Loose Fit Jean to still be pretty baggy around the thigh area and even though it is a medium length and I am 5'5", it's necessary for me to roll the cuff. The main reason I am not returning this item is that I was able to snag it at a REALLY good discount - so, even though I am STILL searching for the perfect fit, I am moderately happy with my purchase and will continue to wear these jeans around the house.
