Men's 10" shorts to help you stay cool.

Because the hardest jobs are done where there's no air conditioning, we made these men's shorts to keep you working through the heat. They're made of lightweight yet durable fabric that wicks sweat and dries quickly. The relaxed-fit shorts have built-in stretch so you can squat, crouch, or crawl easily.
  • 6-ounce, 53% cotton / 25% polyester / 22% Cocona® 37.5® polyester blend
  • Force Extremes: Our fastest-drying, sweat-wicking gear built for all-day comfort
  • FastDry® with 37.5® technology makes this our fastest-drying gear
  • 37.5® technology fibers maintain your body's ideal temperature while attracting and releasing sweat
  • Built to move with Rugged Flex® stretch technology
  • Carstrong® durable reinforced front ledge and back pockets help prevent wear and tear
  • Fights odors: Traps and releases them in the wash
  • More room to move with a comfortable fit through the seat and thigh
  • Left-leg zipper pocket; Strong sewn-on-seam belt loops
  • Comfortable gusseted crotch for more stretch between the legs
  • Inseam: 10"

Very comfortable
Took these to the lake two days after buying them, got them wet launching the boat, they dried quick and stayed comfortable all day. Since then they have become some of my favorite shorts.

The material is great. The pocket configuration is not so great. The cell phone pockets on either side are great when standing but the phone falls out when you sit.I wish you you would use the same fabric and do the "cargo work short"pocket configuration. The cargo work shorts are my favorite.

Everyday work wear for Solar installs
Can’t say enough about how great these cargo shorts are at work. Carrying tools and zip ties etc in pockets safely while climbing on roof projects.

Great shorts. Awesome pockets.
I have these in grey and the pants in both colors. They’re great. The cargo pockets have flaps at the top that hold things in. No zipper or velcro. It’s awesome. There is also a small zipper pocket on the left side inside the side pocket. Perfect for keys. The length could be longer though.

Carhartt must believe in the one size fits all mantra that so many companies have now days! One guy was asking for a longer inseam on shorts, but I have the opposite problem I need a much shorter and same for two reasons: one is that I have short legs and the other reason is that I’ve had both knees replaced and when I have the ham of shorts rubbing across my knee caps I get a weird uncomfortable sensation. So why can’t CHR heart offer a wider variety of in the seams on shorts and jeans, or offer to re-him that was in seems there are much too long?!

I would love to see a few more colors...black, navy maybe?

BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Will these shorts be offered with a longer inseam in the future? Great shorts, just a little too short.
Shane on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do not show plans to offer this style in a longer inseam this year. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
What is the total length of these shorts?
Brett P on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These shorts have a 10" inseam.
Why does Carhartt not make more 13" inseam shorts? I have found only one pair, cotton, but nothing in the Force Extremes category. Why?
Brett P on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry we do not carry the inseam you are looking for in Force Extremes. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
How do these look after taking them out of the dryer? Are they a wrinkled mess or decent looking?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They look good since they're made of a stain-fighting cotton fabric and really don't wrinkle like plain cotton. However, if you throw them in the dryer I recommend going with a size bigger since they will shrink a little.
Are both cargo pockets zippered?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not.
What is the source of this product?
Anna C Staff on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is imported.
