Women's sweat-wicking, odor-fighting leggings that are built to last.

These women's leggings were created after visiting a woman at a pig farm. From lifting heavy pigs to jumping over concrete walls, the work she did called for the ultimate mix of flex and durability. These leggings are made of stretchy fabric that wicks sweat and fights odor. A bit thicker than your average leggings, they're reinforced at the knees for strength and feature abrasion-resistant pockets.

  • FastDry® technology wicks sweat
  • Fights odors: Traps and releases them in the wash
  • Stretch-knit fabric fits close to the body
  • Straight waistband prevents gap in the back
  • Abrasion-resistant front, back, and utility pockets
  • Reinforced knee panels for durability

Best Workpants I have ever owned
These are high quality, tough and worth the money. I have owned three pair of these for four years now. I basically wear them every single day for six months out of the year. They are warm, yet not too warm. They look great, and are easy to work in. In four years of heavy lifting, yard work, and hauling wood, I have only snagged one pair in one tiny area. The side pocket holds a large format phone, and it is tight enough to flex, yet the phone has NEVER come out of the pocket. Can't say enough about this brand and these pants. Non-staining fabric, dries fast. A no brainer to buy the new colors this year!

Worth the higher cost for fantastic quality
Normally I wouldn't pay so much for a pair of leggings, but these are worth every penny. I wouldn't recommend them for wearing in warmer climates, however they are perfect for Alaska! They even kept my legs warm during my son's hockey game with weather-dependent ice at 10 degrees F...though my bum did get a bit chilly on the aluminum bench! I am a size 12, have a child-bearing belly, 5'6" at 150 lbs., and the medium fits me great. I have tubular calves, so they are snug there, but overall they have a slimming effect. Normally I feel sort of "naked" wearing leggings unless my bottom is completely covered, but these look enough like normal pants to give me more confidence with a shorter top. I don't think they could possibly snag, the material is so sturdy. Overall the best pair of leggings in my wardrobe. I expect them to last a good, long while.

I absolutely love these
I wear a 24w in jeans and am right between the 2x and 3x. The 2x are snug when I put them on but stretch nicely after a bit. The 3x are a bit big but still work, I just have to pull them up more often. I have fibromyalgia so jeans aren't always my friend. I can wear these while looking cute, having pockets, and being comfortable all at the same time. I really want the black heather to be available in plus size though. I love the two toned look. The ink green is very nice, a very dark teal that still goes well with everything. I have 3 pair of these and I basically live in them for the most part.

Back seam developed a long run (holes) after 1-2 wearings
I ordered two pair of leggings in late July due to the thicker, protective fabric. The leggings were not a skin tight fit, so very little constant stress on any seam. Wore the first pair 1-2 times and a 5” run on the vertical back seam left a series of small holes along its length. I called customer service, shipped the pants back and received a refund. I left the second pair in the original packaging until just the other day and hoped the issue with the first pair was a fluke. I wore the second pair this weekend for about 4 hours to help cut down and remove small trees. I checked the seam afterwards and sure enough, holes/run on the back seam were there just like the first pair. I am so disappointed in this terrible flaw as the leggings feel great to work in.

(TL;DR, holding up well to lots of manual labor, very comfortable but inconsistent sizing, hips & waist don’t seem applicable for a lot of body types)
I’m a landscaper and I absolutely destroy all of my pants, I’ve been eyeing these for a while because my standard work pants can sometimes give me some serious chafing and the freedom of movement provided by leggings is something I’ve dreamed about but normal leggings don’t usually have pockets and they NEVER have reinforced knees (which are an essential for me). I absolutely love these, they’ve stood up pretty well so far and I wear them constantly, they hold their shape pretty well so I’ll regularly wear them a couple of days in a row.

As much as I love these, here are my words of warning:
These seem to fall victim to the sizing inconsistency that plagues seemingly every Carhartt product. I bought a black pair in xs and I loved them so much that I ordered two more pairs in heathered black and green. The heathered black ones are so small that I can’t even wear them. Unfortunately I am a fool who, in my excitement over the pants, ripped all the tags off before trying them on. I should have known better, seeing as I have been utterly failed by Carhartt’s sizing issues on so many occasions (I hope they figure this out, I should just be able to order my normal size with confidence, I would really prefer to not have to drive super far out of my way to a physical store try every pair of pants on in person so I can find the ones that are ACTUALLY true to size.)

My second gripe is that Carhartt continues to gives women’s pants a very distinct hip to waist ratio that is not reasonable for a huge amount of women. I have wide hips and a significantly narrower waist and these would fit like we’re tailor made for me if they were about 3-4 inches higher. Because they’re leggings it’s no where near as severe as with other styles and I can still comfortably wear them with no issues. I get making pants wider at the hips and tighter at the waist since waist gapping is a pain but a lot of carhartt’s women’s styles take this way too far.

Warning: inseam of leggings not per size chart
Please note: inseam for leggings are
short 27", Reg 29", Tall 31". not what the size chart says. I've asked Carhartt to update info in product description and size chart.

Apart from wishing they were taller, these are AMAZING pants. Apart from inseam, size chart is accurate.

so much potential
Ordered my usual size, I could get them up but they would have skinned my hips everytime nature called. The main body of the pants is stretchy, more durable feeling than the leading athleasure leggins but almost as comfortable.
The pockets have no stretch so when you do a full squat it stresses the seams. The waistband is the least flexible so if you have a slight difference in hip/waist, they won't work.
I tried on the next size up and they were terrible looking on and still ended up being a little tight at the waist when pulled over the hips.

Utility Leggings
Very comfortable, durable, and great appearance. I love these leggings. They are do seem a little more high-rise than just mid-rise but I like that more! I would recommend them to others!

I’m smack in the middle of a weight loss journey and I’m having trouble judging on whether something will fit me now. I have a couple size 16 jeans that sort of fit, but are a little baggy because they are “stretch”. I have big thighs and calves, which is where I’m having an issue with most pants. They’ll be loose in the waist and hips, but tight from the thigh down. The sizing guide for these suggests I get an XL, are there any other ladies in my predicament that can give insight?
Ozzette on Oct 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I found these pants to be extremely tight and run on the small size. I returned them, as I could barely breathe when I tried them on. Even though they are a "legging" .. there is absolutely NO stretch to them at all. Hope this helps!
Will Carhartt be bringing "short" sizing to this line for petite ladies? I love these but they're waaayy too long for my 5'3 frame. I would buy them all.
A shopper on Oct 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
any chance a zipper pocket could be added?

Do you carry the 3X in Tall ?
Barb E on Sep 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We will not manufacture this size.
Will you please make these in short or ankle? Even your short is often too long.
A shopper on Sep 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We are happy to forward your feedback over to our Product Team.
Do the new colours (green, coffee) fit like the black or the grey and blue? I have all 3 of the old, but my grey and blue pairs fit way tighter and have less stretch.
moolly on Sep 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They should all fit the same, if they have the same style number.
How do these pants work for a second trimester pregnancy and farm work that involves machinery, squatting, kneeling, and lifting? Do they stay up? Do they expand with an expanding stomach and still stay up? Not sure what to wear that is durable and isn't multiple sizes too big to accommodate pregnancy.
A shopper on Aug 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The waist is not very stretchy to me, but it is pretty high. They always stay up on me! It may work for you. I’d just be concerned about how non-stretchy they are on that baby bump. Good luck! And congratulations!!!
ca

Are these tight on the legs? I have large calves and a small waist. Size tool recommends small, but will these fit a 15 inch calf? Can size S wearers offer insight?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have 15" calves, too. I'm 5'5" and usually wear a size 27 Levis. Just tried on the small. It fit perfectly around my calves but was a little baggy everywhere else (ankles, knees, butt, & waist). Since I want tight leggings, I'm gonna size down.
Are these high rise? If not, will you be making a high rise waist?
Asher on Aug 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: These will not be high waisted. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Is Ink green color a blue green? Black green? Indigo?
Kimberly T on Aug 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Its more of an Indigo in my opinion
Do these have any metal on them? (Hidden zippers, rivets, etc.?)
Jennie O on Jul 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No metal! they're exactly like leggings, just thicker waist band
Do these leggings “bag out”? Or do they stay true to the original fit?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They stay true. Very tight around the waist and hoping for fit to relax just a little. Otherwise very happy with fit, look and function. Slim fit is accurate, not as stretchy (around waist as you would think due to the durable nature of the material.
Will you make this in solid navy or shadow, or even carhartt brown? I would buy those in a heartbeat!
A shopper on Jun 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Do these hit under the ankle? Or above?
A shopper on May 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I am only 5 feet tall so a little long on me. But I think would still hit about ankle length. I love these so much I wear them even though they fit long on me.
Have these been improved yet? I want to purchase but I'm seeing a lot of recent reviews about seam failure. Thanks!
A shopper on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Not sure when those who experienced seam failure purchased their leggings! However, I have bought 4 pairs of them....and have washed all of them, many, many times!! I’ve never had a seam failure! I like these pants more than any pants I have ever owned! I have also worn them to the grocery stores....and to weddings! They are the most versatile pants I’ve ever owned!
Are they insulated?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style will not be insulated.
What is the inseam on the tall leggings?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The inseam for tall will be 34".
Will these shrink (I want them to) in hot water/high dryer?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No they did not shrink. It states that you should dry on low and without fabric softener, I have done both, didn't make any difference.
Does waste band have an inner drawstring to pull them tighter and secure a bit more?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, this style does not have a drawstring.
