Carhartt, if you made these in about 10 more colors I would seriously buy 5 of each....these are the most comfortable work pants ever and are flexible enough to ride my horse in. Need 100 more!!!

Waistband too tight!
I love these leggings but the waistband is way to tight to pull up over my hips. Every time I put them on I hear threads popping. If the waistband was bigger they would get 5 stars.

Most Comfortable Work Pant
I bought a pair of these from Bass Pro Shops to wear for work and I love them. I got them in black. Love the 4 pockets and reinforced knees. All the comfort of a legging while being functional and durable. Will be buying more in other colors.

Awesome leggings!
I've only had these for a week or so, but from the two times I've worn them now, I can say they are Very well made, with a thick durable nylon material that really holds you in. All six pockets are actually functional and the knees are reinforced, although the reinforcing seems a tad bit low. Im about 5'6, 140 and can snuggly, yet tolerable fit in a small, therefore Id consider them running a bit large. Overall, I think im going to love these, and so far recommend!!

Amazing
Love these so much. Extremely comfortable, I wear them around the house and to work even though I bought them specifically for work. The pockets and knees are extra durable, which is great. As is the fact that these are real pockets! Deep enough for actually holding things and not having everything fall out when you bend over. And I love how high waisted they are, no fears of my underwear showing off when I'm throwing big boxes in and out of trucks. I do extensive amounts of bending, crouching, lifting, and running at work, and have not once had to stop and adjust these. Nice change of pace to breeze through work without my pants being a nuisance. These do run a liiiitle big, I'm between an 18 and 20 and the XL is perfect on me, they don't dig in at all (whereas a lot of the carhartt regular pants do dig in at my belly quite badly).

These fit a niche in my wardrobe. ????
I am very excited about these leggings and have already worn them all weekend since I got them on Friday. I can see them being wonderful for jogging, gardening, raking, cross country skiing and hiking. However my only gripe is that they do not come in petite sizes. I am 5’3”, 120lbs and wear size small but I I have to roll them up on the bottom and can tell that they don’t fit on me the way they do on the model in the photo- the knee reinforcements start mid-shin and end just above the knee for me.
Please Carhartt, make a petite series! Thank you!

GREAT FOR EVERYTHING!
I love these leggings, I can dress them up and wear them at the office or I can wear them doing work on the farm. They are perfect for every occasion and so comfortable and the pockets are the best. Can't wait to get more.

I wear a size 10-12 pants which puts me between sizes. I am 5’3. Which size would you recommend?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: SINCE YOU ARE BETWEEN SIZES, BUT YOU MAY HAVE THE BEST LUCK WITH A LARGE. PLEASE CALL US AT 1 800 833 3118 FOR FURTHER ASSISTANCE.
Do these keep you warm?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While this is fairly thick for a legging, it does not feature any insulation and isn't water-repellent.
When will there be a short inseam for these?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have forwarded this over to our product team as a suggestion. At this time we do not have an estimated date for a shorter inseam.
Will you be restocking the olive in medium and small?
Natalie M on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, but the olive color has been discontinued.
I love these leggings! Do you have plans to make them in other colors?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We plan to offer this style in Black and Tarmac this fall.
Which would you recommend for landscaping in 90+ degree weather? SERIES 1889® SLIM DOUBLE FRONT DUNGAREE or FORCE UTILITY KNIT LEGGING?
Layla F on Jun 9, 2018
Force Utility Knit Legging
Force Utility Knit Legging
Series 1889 Slim Double Front Dungaree
Series 1889 Slim Double Front Dungaree
BEST ANSWER: I would definitely landscape in Slim double -front dungaree, It may be hot outside but whenever you are working in the yard you should always wear sturdy pants. If someone is cutting grass, you can get hit with anything the lawnmower decides to hurl at you., The pants are breathable canvas, so the tiny bit of added material is worth the huge safety benefits.
I have size 27.5 inch waist and 40 in hips. Height 5'9. What size utility pant should I get?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You are between sizes, but you may have the best luck with a Medium. Please call us at 1 800 833 3118 for further assistance.
Will Carhartt be making these leggings in petite sizes in the future? I'm 5"3, and I have the regular ones, but I have to roll them up to wear them.
Natalie M on May 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Are these comfortable to wear in hot weather?
A shopper on May 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The material is quite thick and very densely woven. I wear them as if they were thin (~1mm) neoprene wet-suit pants, only very tough, with pockets and knee pads etc. In hot dry weather they would be very "hot", in wet conditions, and or windy/wet, they do cool off a bit with evaporation. For me these are "working wet-suit" pants. When you are wet, you need a skin-tight fabric to keep you warm. In very cold weather these can be used as "skins" under a shell or dry-suit, etc.
Are you going to make these in petite sizes?
Terry C on Apr 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your input with Product Design.
Is there a timeline for adding more Tall sizes to your stock?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We expect more XL tall in black in December. We do not have plans to restock the Olive in Tall sizes at this time.
I'm a soon to be electrical apprentice, would these be appropriate attire for that kind of work? And if I range from size 0 - 2, is it possible the smallest size be too loose? Do they shrink at all?
Jamie R on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are very fitted and may not be work appropriate or comfortable. They stay true to size and keep their shape after wash. Hope this helps.
Are these FR?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style is not Flame Resistant.
Does the %5 spandex include a natural latex additive, and/or does the whole garment have any latex added anywhere? I have a latex allergy and try to avoid certain fabrics.
p h on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While our specifications do not call for any latex to be used in this style, we cannot guarantee that trace amounts of latex won't be found in the spandex.
Hello, how stretchy are these? Do they stretch in the waist band, thigh area or less so?
Eden C on Apr 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Edan they have good stretch, I have found one pair gets more loose in the waist than the other and they have nice thigh area, I have large calves so I went with the large 12-14 I tried the 10’s fit everywhere good but the calves they were just too tight, a great durable pant.
How long does shipping to Canada take?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Shipping to Canada is 7-14 business days.
When will the black small be in stock?
Laura G on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We plan to restock the first week of July 2018.
when will you restock the small olives? This question has been asked several times before so obviously there is a demand that's not being met, PLEASE RESTOCK YOUR SMALL WOMEN'S CARHARTT!
omfggg_restock on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We currently have stock in the color Olive, size Small for the force utility legging.
Are these leggings boot cut?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the leg opening is fairly snug around the ankle.
Will these be available in Olive again soon?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, it will not be in the near future.
Big butt, small waist. Can the waistband be easily modified to tighten it up? Or are you going to put belt loops a/o drawstring soon? (PS Your model looks like a boy)
Rissy on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I added elastic to the waistband by opening up the seam on the inside and threading through a 2-inch length of elastic. It didn't take long, and worked very well. I no longer have issues with the waistband stretching out & the leggings falling down. I have two pairs, and did this to both.
DO YOU KNOW WHEN SIZE M WILL BE BACK IN STOCK?
millerre on Feb 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We currently have the M in stock.
How do the inner seams hold up to friction? I've got thick thighs that tend to destroy pants.
TayaR on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the same issue and have found these to be very durable. Great pants

BEST ANSWER: This is not an FR (flame resistant) style.
What is the inseam?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The inseam is 29."
Are they see through at all or will I have full, opaque coverage?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2018

Are they csa approved?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These pants do not have any type of a CSA rating.

A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are expected to have a new color for Fall 2018

Make them in TALL to prevent the pants from dropping after bending over. I pull them past my ankles to allow for some give yet the inseam requires room! Love the product, fabric, durability and look! Help!

BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
