Rugged Flex®

Carhartt Rugged Flex® technology moves and stretches with you throughout the day so that whatever you're doing, it's easier to do.

Rugged Flex® garments must meet the Carhartt's defined standards for stretch, recovery, and durability, so when you put on a Rugged Flex® garment, you know it won't let you down. You'll find Rugged Flex® in shorts, shirts, pants, jackets, and boots because you need gear that helps you move, not gear that holds you back.

These are ok. They fit way smaller than I expected. If you have any kind of booty, it's going to be a very tight fit.

Love these!
Love these shorts! So comfortable and very durable. Even professional enough looking to wear for a summer meeting for work as a teacher.

these shorts seem to fit a bit lower than the cargo shorts, otherwise would give an overall 5 stars. Love the phone pocket on the leg, large enough I don't have to worry about it falling out. Great well constructed shorts.

I like the style of shorts and material durability but size is way off!!!
I am very disappointed with these shorts. I have purchased pants and shorts from Carhartt for years. I received my shorts thought they would fit like all my other pants and shorts and low and behold they are very tight. I realize perhaps I need to lose weight however I really did expect them to fit. These shorts are a size smaller than the size labeled. I am keeping them in hopes I will be able to wear them at some point and do not have the time to return them. I have never sent a review before but these shorts really annoyed me.

Get quality, not my favorite fit. Go for the rugged cargo shorts instead
I love Carhartt. Especially their work shorts. But I wasn’t thrilled with the fit of these. I ordered a size 4 like all my other Carhartt shorts but these were a little tight around my butt, a little loose around my waste, and I’m not a fan of how the leg opening flares out. I had been wearing the original fit until they came out with the rugged series and thought these would fit the same only tougher. But they don’t. Quality still 5/5

To sum it up
The material is sturdy but not stiff. They don't wrinkle up even after gardening in them for a few days, just brush off the dirt & keep going. The style is as flattering as a work jean can get. I'm confident they will wear well, time will tell. I think you have a winner.

Good
I love the sturdy quality of these shorts. However as with most apparel these days there is inconsistency in fit from pair to pair. I ordered two pair, one blue, one steel in the same size. The steel are a lot more snug. I’ve decided to keep both pair as somedays I feel thinner than others.
