Rugged Flex Icon

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.

Force Icon

Carhartt Force®

Keep your cool with sweat-wicking FastDry® technology.

All Carhartt Force® gear wicks sweat thanks to FastDry® technology. Force also either fights odors, releases stains with Stain Breaker® technology, or both.
Fast Dry technology has superior wicking action which makes perspiration a memory. The bottom line is that Force works harder, day in and day out, for hard-working men and women, at a price that doesn’t bring out complaints at the kitchen table.

Great shorts
Make some pants with this same fit and material. Make more of these shorts in other color options. 9” inseam is perfect for me and love the cell phone pocket. Belt loops are great. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars on durability is I haven’t had them long enough to know how durable they are.
