Great Pants, inconsistent sizing
I love these pants I have all the colors. The sizing is a bit weird, I wear a 34x30, but have had to return 2 pairs to get a different 34x30. Seems that the same size pants can be very different in the size and fit. It's worth the visit to get a new pair that fits right

Great fitting pants...NOW MAKE THEM IN BLACK!
MAKE THEM IN BLACK PLEASE!!! These are some of my favorite Carhartt pants. Great modern fit. Love the flex, without looking to synthetic. The addition of the zipper inner pocket on the left hand side is wonderful for storing small items. I’m having a hard time trying to think of anything I dislike about these pants. Besides having Carhartt offer them in black or other dark colors.

Modern Fit. Perfect Comfort.
These pants are great. The flex makes them unbelievably comfortable. They have a more modern fit and are less baggy like other Carhartt work pants. If the modern fit thing doesn't appeal to you the comfortableness should. I've only had these about 6 months so I can't give an in-depth review of the durability. The only thing that wasn't absolutely perfect about these pants is that they are a tad long. The duck material pants always shrink on me so I get a size up in length when buying Carhartt. So I'm used to my pants long but these were a bit longer than normal. So if too long bothers you or you don't want to roll them up I'd keep that in mind if ordering. I highly recommend these pants.

Solid
I like the fact that they fit well but not too tight. I’m 6’4 230 lbs and I wear a 34/36. They’re extremely durable and I beat the hell out of these things on a daily basis. My only suggestion to Carhartt is to make more colors because I will buy all of them.

Perfect slim fit, but colors could be better
Had these pants a year and they're the best! Seriously, you have nailed something that nobody, not even the expensive, super hip small batch denim makers, can figure out. They're a really great slim fit, medium/high rise work pant that moves with you. I want more colors, but looks like you only have the grey and the beige. Will you make more in colors other than grey and beige?

Not sure why, but I get the feeling the stock on these pants is always limited. I imagine this is because they probably don't sell as well as your other pants. Some suggestions, because I know your market for these is out there:

1. Your current colors aren't great. The beige is too light - a more saturated khaki or something similar in color to your brown duck would look much better. The grey is fine, but not that interesting. That cedar color looks really solid, but it seems you're always sold out of a lot of sizes (including mine, 30x30). It looks like you might have done a green at some point, which looked interesting, but a little dark (maybe more olive?). The colors don't have to be bright and obnoxious, just make them not look so washed out and boring.

2. You've got too many variants with the same name, and it doesn't look like they fit the same. Whatever fit this is, it's great. Let us know which other styles fit like this and which ones don't.

3. I think you're marketing these wrong or something. It took me a long time to discover these pants, despite consistently searching for similar products over the past few years. Your product photos and color options seem like they're made for a middle aged dude, and your description seems like it's beating around the bush. This fit is exactly what younger (I'm 30) guys are looking for. They are the most functional true slim fit (not skinny) work pants on the planet. Nobody else is making anything like these, especially not for the price point. People need to know that!

Who are these for? The material isn't heavy enough to use on a job site, so probably not the construction trades. Anyone else who wants a rugged pair of pants that's got a sleek, tailored fit would want these: younger outdoorsmen (looks like you sell these through a couple outdoor websites, but they don't stand out), workers and craftsmen in industries that don't beat their clothes to pieces every day (I used to work in a wood shop and these would be perfect), people who work for a living but might be customer/client facing and need to look more put together, and of course anyone interested in the workwear style that's become extremely popular over the last decade. That's a lot of people all over the globe, and it's not that difficult to find them.

You don't need to mess around with moving these pants to your "Carhartt WIP" line or any of that crap. Just say, "Hey, these are the perfect pants for dudes who do stuff and want as little extra fabric as possible." Look at Danner and Red Wing - heritage brands that make the best boots in the world, but they also know how to market to others who want dependable footwear for other reasons.

30" inseam measures 31 1/2"!
I just purchased my third pair of Rugged Flex Rigby Pants. The first two pair (size: 38"x 30") fit perfectly and are very comfortable. This last pair fits fits my waist just like the other two pairs, but the 30" length drags on the ground! The two first pair measure 29" long and this last pair measures 31 1/2"! Guess I have to roll up the cuffs for now and never forget to try on Carhatt pants before I leave the store.

I am 6'6" 245 lbs. large thighs.. do these flex jeans allow for bending without busting out the behind???
A shopper on Nov 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These pants are made to be flexible. Please call us at 1 800 833 3118 if you need specific measurement information.
I was in a Carhartt store the other day and tried on the 102821 rigby straight fit pant. They were extremely long (as some people have noted on here), and the salesperson said there had been a mix-up at the factory, and that most of the pants were two inches longer than the tag said. Are the pants you have in inventory this way, should I order two inches shorter than I think I need, or is your inventory true to size?
Andrew M on Oct 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We still recommend going with your normal size. However, if you are between sizes, you may wish to go with the shorter option. Please feel free to call us at 1 800 833 3118 if you need further information.
How well do these fit with Western/ cowboy boots?
Hunter Y on Oct 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I personally haven't tried them with cowboy boots, but I would say, having owned cowboy boots, that they should work with cowboy boots as the pants are straight leg. If you like that look.
Do you offer these with in the 5 pocket? I bought a pair and like them a lot but with they had a side cell phone pocket.
A shopper on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, this style is not offered with a cell phone pocket and is the only straight fit work pant we offer at this time. We are happy to forward your suggestion to our Product Design team.
I am looking for a tight fitting pant. Are these tight around the leg or loose/baggy?
