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.

Purchased at marks work warehouse a few months back and the shorts are still like new after a summer of work. The anti rip fabric is very good quality only gripe I have is it could use a few more pockets!

Very comfortable hot weather shorts!
I bought a few pair of these to wear around our cabin in SE OK in the summer 'cause it gets really hot up on the mountain. These were very comfortable and seem extremely durable.

Sucks compared to the Force Tappen -- Please bring them back!!!
If you find that your genital region isn’t warm enough on its own, be sure to purchase this thermal accelerator in the form of shorts -- It’s sure to create a hot and humid environment fit for the growth of organisms that can only survive in a perspiration soaked atmosphere...Seriously though, stick with the Force Tappen - if you can still find them, or Carharrt is intelligent enough to bring them out of extinction. The Tappens provided a better cut, was lighter weight, had better retention on pockets, breathed MUCH better, and were better looking. Carhartt screwed up by replacing the Tappen with the Broxton.

How deep are the front slash pockets? Are they deep enough for a iPhone X?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No
What are they made of?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This will be a 7 oz. 92% Nylon 8% spandex Ripstop fabric.
In real life do these wear below the knee?
A shopper on May 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure it depends on your build to some degree. Standing, mine stop right at the top of my knee cap. Maybe slightly shorter on me than the model in the pictures. Mine seem to fit my legs a little tighter than his too. I'm very happy with the shorts and the fit.
do the back pockets have flaps ?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I work for Carhartt and own these shorts. No, the back pockets do not have flaps. The cargo pockets on the sides have flaps held down with velcro. Hope that helps!

What holds the cargo pockets closed? I really hate velcro, prefer snaps
A shopper on May 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Velcro - no snaps. But know that there is a very accessible pocket (no closure) for a large cell phone. I seldom use the cargo pockets and do not find the velcro that onerous.
