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.

Storm Defender®

Storm Defender®, waterproof breathable technology, stops rain, but let’s sweat escape through a breathable membrane—so you can work through a storm.

Staying dry, focused, and safer is easier with rainwear featuring Storm Defender® waterproof breathable technology. It's made to keep you completely protected from rain and amazingly comfortable inside. Work doesn't stop when it rains; it just gets harder. Lugging rain soaked garments around adds to the misery, but Carhartt's jobsite worthy raingear cuts the discomfort.

Rugged flex work boot
I purchased a pair about 6 weeks ago and I’m very happy with them. I’m a UPS driver in Michigan, I’m on all kinds of surfaces 10-12 hours a day and get in and out of the truck about 200 times a day. They are comfortable with very good ankle support, the break in time was about two weeks. I will buy another pair when these wear out and do recommend them. The only complaint I have is that the top three grommets for the laces are much smaller than they need to be and do make lacing them a pain.

Love em, But, Carhartt needs to be made in the USA
Looks good now, but they made in china. And the quality has been steadily going down since the last 10 yrs, i know i been a Carhartt wearer since the 70’s and my clothes dont hold up anymore, especially the cotton t-shirts wear out, fade, neck sag etc in 3to4 months, and im retired. the boots feel and look good now, I will let u know in a couple months

Comfortable fit right out of the box. They stand up to the subzero temps we have here in winter and don’t melt your feet during the summer. Light enough to handle all day on the trail too. I will buy these again when the time comes.
