Great Overall Just a Few Issues Beware!!
I bought two pair of these and love them but after washing them a couple of times they shrank. They fit great off the rack. Made from very tough materials. Look great! Unfortunately don't do me much good just hanging in my closet. Also they are NOT cheap! I just felt stuck because I bought them at Academy Sports and trashed my receipt since they seemed fine for first couple laundry cycles. Its a shame because I want to buy a larger size and try again but I am gun shy due to the cost. So learn from my mistake and go up at least one size. THEY WILL SHRINK!!!

The correct size of 33” waist and a 36 “ inseam fit my tall husband to a tee. He loves the fit and comfortable material. We were thankful to be able to order them on line. It is difficult to find the longer inseam for tall guys.

Work Pants
Very happy with my first ever Carhart pants order. Ordered three pair of the pants for work. Great look and feel. I had to return the original order due to ordering the wrong size. Customer Service did a great job getting the order returned and the right size pants sent out to me. I will definitely order from Carhart again and again.

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.
