Love the cargo shorts. My other pair has white paint on'em.
Lighter weight than my previous carhartt cargo shorts. Great for summertime. Great color. Good fit. Has a "rip stop" pattern in the cloth. The "rip stop" pattern was a surprise but it looks good!
Just finished the new gate for the porch.

Best shorts I've ever owned!
Bought these shorts at the local fleet farm after replacing a toilet and ripping the crotch out of a pair of cheap off label shorts. I then continued to wear them for 4 days after that without having to wash them and them looking as good as the day i bought them. During those 4 days i sealed a leaking window in our basement and did other various jobs. I would HIGHLY recommend these shorts.

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.
