Nice waistband!
These pants have a great comfortable waistband however, the double front section rubs against your knees making that part uncomfortable. If that part was revised, would give a 5 star rating.

felt weird
I thought the material felt weird. I might believe that they are abrasive resistant but I do a lot of welding and was afraid of them melting. I also would have liked them better if they included the rivets like the original style. I returned them for the originals.

Overall these have been my favorite pants I’ve ever owned as far as comfort and function, just wish they’d have lasted longer
I bought these a little over a year ago. My first impressions were that these were incredible pants. They are the most comfortable pants I think I’ve ever worn. The pocket bolster where your pocket knife always clips on is a great touch. I have the old foam knee pads and the new green honey comb style in two different pairs. They both work great, but I will say that the newer style is much more comfortable. The side pocket is the only one I’ve had that will actually fit my Otterbox clad iPhone.

Now for the bad. I am a heavy equipment technician and I have to climb up on big combines and tractors all day long. Both of my pants crotches are completely blown out. One ripped all the stitching out and then destroyed the ripstop fabric so that I couldn’t have someone fix them. I can’t wear them any longer and still maintain a professional appearance. Needless to say, I’m not impressed with the durability of these. Carhartt needs to address the crotch area on these to allow better flex.

Great comfortable work pants
Bought these pants because I was looking for a pair of stretchy/flexible pants. I bought the regular 5 pocket rugged flex, those were comfortable but the material didn’t feel as thick as these steel pants. Overall these are great pants to work in. I’m always unsure when it comes to ripstop material but I’ll have to see how they hold up in the long run.

Are there any plans to make this pant as well as the other "steel" pants in 31x34? I really want to try them but sometimes your size 32s are actually 33s and therefore your 31s actually fit me instead.

How do the knee pad inserts work? I have a job where I’m on my knees constantly but can’t have knee pads showing...
A shopper on Jan 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The knee pad inserts are below the knees, on the outside of the pants. You open the compartment by pulling apart a strip of velcro, and sliding the knee pads, up into the pants. The knee area of the pants are double thickness to contain the knee pads, similar to a pillow case. Once the knee pad is inserted and adjusted properly, just close the velcro. They recommend using Carhartt's own knee pads. They are yellow, and sort of a honeycomb shape. The yellow side faces OUT.

Do you plan on offering this in carhartt brown? This pant has everything I need but color!

BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
The pants listed as rugged steel flex double front pants dont list and CONDURAS technology but it seems to me like these pants have the wrong fabric listed because it says it has conduras in it but lists 98% cotton and 2% spandex. Other products like this on this site list 73% cotton 24% condura and 3% spandex ripstop. Is this an error and if so does this product actually contain the conduras material? https://www.carhartt.com/products/carhartt-men-performance-pants/Full-Swing-Steel-Double-Front-Pant-103160
Nicholas V on Feb 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The 103160 is mostly constructed of the 98% cotton / 2% spandex ripstop. Cordura nylon is located on the item. This can be found as the double front material, kick pannels on the back of the legs (near ankle), and back pockets.
Why is black the only color offered?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry that Black is the only color available at this time. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Is the utility pocket big enough for a cell phone with an otter box case?
Grainne V on Dec 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The smaller leg pocket is a bit wider than the opening to the slanted longer pocket that I keep my S8+ with case in, but there is a smartphone pocket in place of the 5th pocket, not sure the Otterbox will fit in it though.
Is this relaxed fit? Because if you are 6’1 and 170 the original fit is just way to big
A shopper on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style will be Relaxed fit.
