Excellent short can be better
I love the material durability flexibility and 13 inch inseam length of the short The one thing I would like to see Carhartt add is at a gusseted croch to the short. It would make it much more comfortable for driving and biking or commuter biking in. The stretch material help somewhat in this regard yet I drive an average of eight hours a day and feel the short could be more comfortable

Great Shorts!
These are tighter than the old cell phone shorts but with the flex material they are extremely comfortable and not too tight. The inseam is just long enough for myself (6’ 4”) which is great, definitely recommend these shorts.

Best shorts I've owned in 40 years!
My wife really likes these shorts! She let me wear them out on a group date with friends. She even said she wished she could find shorts that worked as well for her as these worked for me. I would agree that these are the best shorts I've ever owned.

Disappointing / Inaccurate Description
On paper, these shorts are just what I was looking for. The design looks clean and simple, just enough pockets without extra flaps and loops that can hang up on stuff. After purchasing though, I don’t like them. The main reason I bought these was for the longer inseam. I tried on the shorter (10”) version of these in a store. The first thing I noticed was that while the waist size was accurate, they were too tight across the hips. I ended up going up a size. The “shorter” version was a decent length so I figured the 13” version would be better. The 13” version is not available locally, so I had to order them and paid $5 more. Turns out, they’re almost exactly the same length as the 10” shorts. I kept the 13” because it was too much trouble to return. I ended up going back to the store and measuring the length. Turns out the 13” are only ½” longer than the 10”. Attached is a photo with my older B278 on top of the Rigby 13”. The B278 are 11” shorts and you can see that they have the same outseam as these. The shorts also have a few other problems like the coin pocket doesn’t have the typical horizontal seam so stuff drops way down and is hard to get out, and the front belt loops are really widely spaced so the front waistband drops from under my belt. On the plus side, I like the fabric (it was a decent weight & feel but it does seem to shrink) and the cell phone pocket is just right. Overall, I don’t recommend these shorts. However, if you like the style, save $5 and just get the 10” version because they’re almost exactly the same and they have more color choices. I really wish Carhartt would make a true 13” inseam / 25” outseam work short that’s not a cargo short (I prefer to just have the cell pocket, anything you put in a cargo short pockets just sloshes around). I have some older Carhartt 13” cargo shorts, the length is great for working outside in the summer. They are long enough that if I need to put a knee down I can get some fabric under my knee. This is crucial if say you’re working on a roof, in the south, in July and need to get down and check some flashing. There are a ton a shorter shorts out there, tall people need longer shorts and these are a huge disappointment.

Very tight in the hips
I purchased these shorts with high hopes that they would be great fit like other Carhartt products. The first time I wore these I noticed they seemed to have some flex as advertised. Then I washed them. They are now so tight around the hips I can barely get them on. I am 6'0" 200lbs and I wear a 34 waist. I just don't get it. They just shrunk up. I am very disappointed. I was really hoping for a pair of tough Carhartt shorts that looked good, and were comfortable. It seems like these just don't have enough give in the hip area. I would think most people don't want their shorts to fit like skin.

Comfortable, protective, lightweight, tough
Have many pairs and styles of Carhartt shorts already, some for work some casual wear. These could serve either purpose. They fit well too, the stretch giving the bit extra needed to make "Relaxed Fit" (a misnomer imo) comfortable and not binding. Very comfortable, protective, lightweight (should be cool) and tough. Only thing missing is the tool pocket on left thigh that most Carhartt shorts have. Cell phone pocket on right thigh works well though. Great deal on sale too, thanks Carhartt!

Legs are not big enough
Waist ran true to size, but the thigh portion was too small

Great Shorts
Well built short. Pocket fits phone with protective case. Beefy canvas but still soft and comfy. Feel great all day working.
