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.

Just what I was looking for
I've gotten used to nylon shorts made by companies like Arc'teryx, but I was sometimes missing the sturdy feel of cotton. A quick search of durable+shorts yielded this site.

I just received the shorts, tried them on, and found that they fit just right. They are also a lot warmer than my hiking shorts, but that's to be expected. They feel durable, but only activity can confirm this. I will say that the pocket design is not suited for traveling, as the back pockets are open and there isn't a secure zippered pocket. I'm not sure that I would purchase these at their regular price, but I'll likely buy more if I happen to see them on sale again.

How deep are the front slash pockets? Are they deep enough for a iPhone X?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2020
What are they made of?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This will be a 7 oz. 92% Nylon 8% spandex Ripstop fabric.
In real life do these wear below the knee?
A shopper on May 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure it depends on your build to some degree. Standing, mine stop right at the top of my knee cap. Maybe slightly shorter on me than the model in the pictures. Mine seem to fit my legs a little tighter than his too. I'm very happy with the shorts and the fit.
do the back pockets have flaps ?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I work for Carhartt and own these shorts. No, the back pockets do not have flaps. The cargo pockets on the sides have flaps held down with velcro. Hope that helps!

What holds the cargo pockets closed? I really hate velcro, prefer snaps
A shopper on May 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Velcro - no snaps. But know that there is a very accessible pocket (no closure) for a large cell phone. I seldom use the cargo pockets and do not find the velcro that onerous.
