Fit & Technology
    Rugged Flex icon
    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.

    Force Extremes®
    Don’t hit walls, knock them down with our fastest-drying, odor-fighting gear designed to increase comfort and performance


    Force Extremes® increases your comfort in a wider range of conditions, from hot to cold. Stay dry and on the job longer without having to switch out your gear. Fabrics made with 37.5® dry up to five times faster than other fabrics, making this our fastest-drying gear.
    How does it work? 37.5® particles are naturally embedded in the fabric, and will never wash out for the entire lifetime of the garment. The particles don’t just move water around, like traditional wicking does-they evaporate it.
    When you wash your Carhartt Force Extremes® gear, the odors are released into the wash and the technology is refreshed to trap odors all over again during your next workday.

    Relaxed Fit
    Comfortable fit through the seat and thigh with room to move

Size runs small!
Size runs small, tried on two other shorts I bought and they fit comfortably couldn't get the waist band button buttoned. Sure wish I would have tried them on before the tags were removed. Getting another pair, I really like the feel and the style of these shorts.

These are well built shorts so thats the only reason they wont get 1 star. These shorts "having stretch" & having "more room in seat & thigh" is a joke! They're tiny, small- I could barely get my trunk into them & no way were they buttoning comfortably... They were above the knee also at 10" seems short I dont know but thats a whole other issue

Surprisingly thought out cargo short layout. Great quality and comfortable!
These cargo shorts are surprisingly thought out. They have a zipper on the left hand pocket which is perfect for my needs. The 2 belt loops on the seams are also a great addition for me since I can connect electrical tape or other things to a retractable line and makes things easier for my carpenter/electrician pouches. The cargo pouches themselves have no zippers/Velcro/buttons to close things off but it suits my needs perfectly as well as I usually never used the fastening systems mentioned most of the time. They are designed in a fashion where bigger content (wallet size and up+) will not fall out unless they are protruding from the top or are maneuvering through trusses monkey style. The exterior of the puches feature utility pockets that help when you are working on a fixed project like electrical panels or miter stations. They are not too friendly to hold things while running/speed walking which I do not mind as I believe these were meant to be an extra means to set things aside.

Nice hot weather shorts
I have worn these in 90 degree weather and are noticeably more comfortable than other shorts I have. Nice product.

Great Lightweight Shorts for hot days.
I have two pairs and will be ordering more. Nice and light, and quick drying. I can't wait to take them to certain theme parks in Florida.

Very comfortable
They flex when I move, they breathe well and don’t hold a lot of moisture. I can golf in them or wear them to work in.

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?!

BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
I would love to see a few more colors...black, navy maybe?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2018
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.
