Looked great. Tore easily
The first time I wore these I was very impressed, they were comfortable, the pockets were useful and they SEEMED durable. However, the 2nd time I wore these pants they snagged on something small (not sharp) and I ended up with an 8 inch tear on the lower right leg. I have snagged jeans and exercise pants on that same spot and nothing else has ever torn. I am very disappointed in the quality of this product. I know that Ripstop material should be much more durable because that is what my Army uniforms are made out of and they are far more durable than these pants.

I have always bought and been impressed with Carhartt products, but unfortunately, these pants are the exception. I would NOT recommend them.

Cool pants, baggy cut
They do what they are intended to do. Make you more comfortable when working outside on hot summer days. The only thing I would consider changing is the cut. The pants are baggy. People these days prefer a slimmer cut.

Sizing Issues
Used the sizing chart online, and they weren’t even close to fitting. Had to return four pair of pants, and order four more in a larger size. Aside from that, they are great pants.

Comfortable Lightweight Pants
I was looking for lightweight rip-stop cargo pants and these fit the bill. I was not disappointed when I received them and wore them on vacation. I prefer the Velcro pocket closures to the snaps of some other Carhartt pants for travel purposes (getting through airport security].

I subsequently purchased the Tappen Cargo Shorts version [mainly for wearing around the house], and I am not big on wearing shorts. I would not have even considered buying the shorts if I had not tried the Tappen Cargo Pants.

What stain removers are safe? I used dawn dish soap and a Fels-Naptha bar to remove a small trailer grease spot and now there is a quarter sized white spot on where the stain used to be. I just bought these pants less than a week ago. They are the Yukon shade if it matters.

How are there for hiking and camping? Light, dry quick, durability, etc.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For day hikes, I’m sure they’re great. I wouldn’t overnight in them. “Cotton kills” is still true. They dry faster than cotton usually does, but I wouldn’t bet against hypothermia on how quickly they dried in my house. Also, they’re a touch on the heavy side...

Car camping— you bet. Backpacking— find something designed for it.
