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.

Don't buy more than once! (You won't have to.)
When doing dangerous work, the last thing I want to think about is the quality of my gear. The shorts I got allow for a full range of motion and still manage to stay together. The reinforced belt loops are nice. I would recommend these shorts to anyone who doesn't want to buy work shorts five times a year.
