Great hot weather cargo shorts-need more colors!
Love these shorts! Nothing really bad to say, they're pretty perfect. I'd like to have some other DARK colors though.

Best shorts I've ever owned!
These are by far my favorite shorts. I wear them all summer long (spring and fall too!).
They're light weight but extremely durable and very comfortable, plenty of room without feeling baggy.
They also dry quickly and resist stains really well.
These shorts have a LOT of pocket space but without the usual 'bulging pockets everywhere' look of many cargo shorts.
I don't need any other shorts than these!

Cool Shorts
Lightweight and comfortable shorts! They go great when paired with the Force Exteme Shirt. Will definitely lower your body temp and any help out in the heat and humidity goes a long way!

usless pocket
Good: soooo comfortable. gusseted crotch. cargo pockets, zipper pocket for wallet. Great for the outdoors.

The Bad: there is a pocket on top of the cargo pocket. Maybe for a cell phone? Not deep enough for a cell phone and cells are too expensive to stuff in a pocket that has no retention. So... it's just useless cloth to catch on stuff and tear.

Great lightweight short
These shorts are extremely comfortable. They are lightweight and perfect for a hot summer. I did notice that after wearing them for a while the pockets started to wear and turn like a light grey where my phone and wallet edges pushed at the fabric. They also ran a size big in the waist. Had to go up a size for them to fit when a different pair of shorts fit in my normal size.

Nice shorts
I like the shorts they just seem to run a little smaller in size than the ones in the store because I have both. Other than that they are great. I would buy again. Unfortunately I can't find any stores selling them.

Comfortable, light weight but tough shorts
I love these shorts. They are perfect for hot, humid days where you don't want that "heavy" feeling on your clothes.

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 great right out of the dryer...really no wrinkles. Just fold them and they are ready to store or just them put on...there is no ironing at our house...so these make the grade for no-iron.
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.
