These shorts are great
These are truly great shorts. Well made and great fitting. Looks like they will be durable and they look great.
They could be made in a longer leg and also in black.

Good Shorts, A little Small
These shorts are definitely better suited for summer times as they are a bit shorter and have a thiner, yet strong material.
I work with dogs professionally and that means mud, spit, bite holes, and sweat. Carhartt always has quality products with great pockets and always a place to hang my caribeaner full of keys off it.
My only downside with these is that they are pretty hot to wear still, even though they are made of a different material than the regular shorts

Overall an excellent short for working outside in the heat.
I love the material of these shorts. I also appreciate how they “move” with a partial elastic band. Belt loops are a big plus, too. My one gripe is how they look a bit “bulky” and not as slimming as I would have hoped. The leg openings seem very wide. Other than that these are awesome for the hot weather. Wearing them at either 6 or 9 inch is a bonus!

Pretty close to perfect pair of shorts
Carharrt you are stepping up your game big time! I stopped using this brand for a while and in the last year your new products have gotten me hooked again. These shorts are pretty great I bought them a few weeks ago and have pretty much worn them every hot day since. They are definitely durable and flexible I love the pockets and loop. The ability to make them longer or shorter is nice too. I like the flexible back I think they keep the shorts up week and tight to the body when bending over. I wish I could give these a 4 and a half stars only because they advertise stain resistant material but. Both my khaki colored pairs are pretty stained with cow manure grease and oil in only about 3 weeks if they hadn't specific ally advertised it. I wouldn't even mention it as it's usually the nature of the job. Every thing else that's important is really good though
I have thick thighs that tend to rub alot these have shown very little wear and tear.
You can see some stains and these just came out of the washing machine.

How do these handle sweat? I am a sweaty person, especially working outside during Kansas summer heat, and sometime sweat through pants. Will these show sweat easily orhide it well?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the dark green ones, and haven’t had a problem with sweat. The material is thick and sturdy and doesn’t get soiled easily. The color would definitely help too if you were to sweat through. I live in California and have worn them a few times all day outside in the summer. I think they’re definitely worth a shot.
