Great summer work pants!
Perfect work pants for summer! These do not hold onto moisture, sweat or water. They’re light but tough!

Light-duty or pack backup
In the beginning, these britches were great. Breathable fabric, quick dry, perfect cut and fit.

After 2 months of use, about 8 wears and 8 washes. The thread in the seat from the zipper towards my rear end, gave out - on the job.

I work in a large industrial facility, roughly 90% male. I would say around 50 people saw my hot pink breathable (shear) underwear.

Best all-around work pant!
I have tested a lot of work pants; these Force Extremes pants are the best! I specifically search them out when it’s time for replacements (after a full 2 years of wear) and will not switch to another. They are perfect in many important categories (for me).

I am a professional gardener and arborist, so I find myself in all weather extremes. These pants make any condition tolerable. Most notably, we have periods of hot, humid weather; these pants allow me to stay out there and keep working- the sweat evaporates off me very quickly, where other work pants would hold the heat. I have also been caught in the rain with these on and within about 30 minutes of the end of the shower, they were dry and comfortable (not tolerable, but comfortable!) again. Amazing!

Movement! The fabric has a bit of stretch to it, so I can crouch, climb, lift, and run with no problems. Cotton duck work pants of the same durability are so stiff to work in if you’re getting yourself into the thick of things. I do wear heavier pants for things like hiking through raspberry patches, but I can spend the day doing things like moving stone and have no problem with the Force Extremes.

Also, There’s elastic at the waist PLUS belt loops. I’m of an athletic build, so this is important, as pants in a generic women’s cut tend to either cut me off in the waist or gap at the hips. This allows me to get pants that fit properly and comfortably. In my goal of dressing professionally but still going out there and getting dirty jobs done, I like to wear pants that I can belt and tuck my shirt into, not wear joggers and an untucked shirt. The elastic plus loops allows me to be comfortable and put-together; very rare finding.

The stain resistance is genuine. I have definitely tested this! Overall, they’re a nice looking pant, too. Not as aggressive as a heavy-duty pant, so if I need to run into the store, office, etc., I don’t draw the same attention as I do in a heavy-duty pant. That’s my perception, anyway!

For stats, I’m 5’5, 130#, straight through the waist, and wear the 4 Short. I appreciate it when people give an indication of sizing, so I’ll pass it forward. :)

I love these pants. They are light wait, quick dry and the elastic waistband allows for comfortable movement! My family owns a flower farm, I find d that if they get wet watering plants they dry quickly.

Awesome Work Pants
These pants held up for my entire internship in a copper mine. I love them--very comfortable and breathable in hot weather.

Comfortable, Looks Great, Extremely Poor Durability
These pants are comfortable and look great but awful durability. Had them for one month and tore in three different places. Might try them again but not a great work pant when working in thick brush.

Not bad but not enough stretch for me.
They are ok but I bought them as they say they "stretch". They do not really stretch but dang if they had some they would be perfect. But as it is they are great for standing. Not so much for moving my fat butt around. Or maybe offer a curvy fit?

I love these pants and wear them all of the time, but I wish they came in black so that I could wear them to work.

Great pants, but us tall gals would appreciate longer inseam options
Great pants, but after 1 washing they are too short. I see that there are some other styles offered in a "tall." Not sure what that inseam is, but i'm hoping it will be better than what I have now...when will these pants be offered in a tall?!

Most comfortable, functional pant!
This is by far my favorite pant! They are easy to move in, very durable, and quite functional with all of the available pockets. Plus, I love the waistband on these pants - it provides extra flexibility, which makes it easier to bend and very comfortable (even after lunch!). Although the colors as classic, I wish they came in more colors (because I already own two of each color).

Will these be available in plus size?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
What is the inseam for these pants ? Because I’m on the tall side and I only see short .
A shopper on Oct 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Short will be 30" and Regular will be 32".
Would these pants hold up to weld in?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not recommend any of our styles for welding.
Are these pants appropriate to wear in a chemical lab/chemistry lab?
nodsm2018 on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure what is appropriate for a chemical lab, the only experience I have with one is from college. If you are looking for a professional, business looking pant, these are not it. These pants have a rugged look, have lots of pockets/loops (for tools) and are meant to be baggy. I hope that helps.
Will these pants be offered in in black?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your input with Product Design.
It said that Carhartt will offer 'Short' length in fall 2017, but it's not currently listed on the web. How can I order 'Short' in this style?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not show stock or future stock in tall. We are happy to forward your suggestion to our Product Design team.
When will these be available in "long" length?
Megan G on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your interest with Product Design.
is the fabric resistant to heavy brush encountered in upland game hunting?
Big Shooter on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ive had these pants for about 3 months I would say. I do really like them, however the material isn't as thick as it probably should be. However they are great for warmer weather. As far as upland hunting, I'm not sure that they would hold up time and time again. I did hit the courner of my knee with a chainsaw chain, it wasn't running but it was a pretty hard hit and the pants didn't rip or anything which I thought was impressive. If you're looking to upland hunt I would get some good chaps. Hope that helped!
Will these be available in Carhart "short" length?
Stacy K on May 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We plan to offer this style in Short in Field Khaki and Shadow this Fall 2017.
Do these have double front on legs?
myrl b on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This style does not have a double front.
How fast is fast drying? Are these a good option for international travel where you may wash in the sink & hand dry overnight? And not be full of wrinkles?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not have a specific timeframe on how long it would take to dry, but it is noticeably quicker than garments without the 37.5 technology. We recommend following the care instructions: Machine Wash Cold, Non-Chlorine Bleach - When Needed, Tumble Dry Low, Do Not Use Fabric Softeners, Cool Iron If Needed, Do Not Dry Clean
Are these pants the same fit as the lakota pants?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are the same type of fit which is our Original Fit. Our Original fit will sit slightly below the waist and will be slightly fitted through the hip and thigh.
What is the inseam?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The inseam is 32".
What is the inseam length?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These have a 32" inseam.
Do these fit similar to the original fit Crawford pant?? Thanks!!!
Rebecca U on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are both Original fit and Mid-Rise. The 102436 does not have the contoured waistband but has a ribbed knit waistband.
Are the interior pocket linings white? and are these elastic waist? How's the fit?
windblown on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The interior pockets will be the same color as the pant that is purchased. They have a ribbed knit waistband which wicks away moisture. They are an Original Fit which will be a Mid rise; sits just below the waist, Slightly fitted through the hip and thigh.
Are the pockets big enough to fit a cell phone?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will fit many cell phones. It should fit an Iphone 7 in a very slim case (but not in an Otterbox).
