Roomy Fit with Lots of Movement
So far so good! I'm excited to see how they hold up to a few washes fit-wise. I got a size 16 and it's pretty generous throughout. If the legs were a little slimmer it would be a 5 star rating but I'm happy they are generous with the sizing overall.

LOVE THESE!!
I have struggled forEVER with finding shorts that would hold up to wear and tear. These shorts are durable enough for what I put them through, don't show sweat like normal light colored (khaki) shorts, and dry quickly. Not only are they functional, but they're long enough for me to comfortably crawl under equipment without worrying about flashing anyone, but short enough to still maintain a feminine look.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND...I just ordered two more pair!!!

I wore these shorts almost everyday! last summer
I Worked outside at a plant nursery last summer and had two pairs of these I literately switched them off and wore almost everyday . They are super comfy and dry very quickly. I had the green and blue pair the green ones stayed true to color. The blue ones have faded .BUT a year later and washed like 100x I still wear them just fine.
These have been my favorite pair of shorts I have ever owned and I am back for a new 3rd pair :)

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

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.
