Good Shorts
These are good shorts. They have proven to be durable. They're not quite as comfortable as the discontinued Rugged Cargo Shorts. They're more durable though. I would prefer some additional color options. I like all of the different pockets. I'd continue to buy these.

Great shorts
Good fit. Easy to care for. Like the pocket arrangement. Now if I could just deal with the fish-belly-white legs stickin’ out the bottom of the shorts everything would be perfect! Guess that will work out in time and sure isn’t Carharrt’s fault.

Do these shorts have any flex to them? I recently went to a pair of ripstop pants and feel like I can't move my legs more than enough to walk and have to pull them up to squat or move my legs in any real fashion, and I hate them. I want to make sure my next pair of shorts accommodates every-day movements.
Mark B on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am very disappointed in these shorts. There is no flexibility and the seat is tight. Fine when you are on your feet but terrible sitting.
