The pants are great! They are solidly built as all carhartts are. They just don’t flex and stretch as much as Duluth fire hose flex.

Fell short of expectations and are virtually unwearable
I really want to like these. There is nothing relaxed about them. I really can’t wear them as they make me feel claustrophobic. All
day they’re choking out my calves and restricting my movement. If it wasn’t for the whole needing to move in them thing...I would give them a 5 star. They’re 100% durable and I like the top loading knee pad.

They are now standard uniform fir my disaster response work.
I purchased a pair a year ago for the chain saw and disaster work I volunteer for every year. After responding to three Hurricanes and four tornados last year I was impressed with their performance. rugged would be a understatement. .

The pants were flawless, providing pockets for my knee pads was genius with extra reinforcements to prevent wear was like you read my mind. The material choice also kept me safe from the sumac and thick brambles . Yet still comfortable while I ran a chain saw for 8 hours a day for three months.

Love them so much I ordered three more pairs to wear as a standard uniform. One to wear clean while travel or attend events. Another to wear in camp and the more to cycle through laundry as I work. If any of them wear out as I work I’ll buy another pair to retire the traveling uniform and start using them as my after hours pants.

Decent pants but the cargo pocket design is next to useless, one pocket with three different openings making it impossible to easily access items

Great pants
Husband loved these pants, about to order another pair. He wore them during a survival course he did and they held up well and we’re comfortable. Course was in the mountains in CA and temps were 20-40 degrees. He likes these much more than a higher end brand he purchased at almost double the cost.

Great Pants to Own!
I highly recommend these pants! They fit well and are very durable. There are several pockets on both sides which are very convenient. I have worn these pants while ranching, hiking, and working in my backyard and they have preformed super!

Do they come with the knee pad inserts or are they sold separately?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Knee pads will be sold separately.
After reading the reviews I'm concerned that a size 42 in the waste won't fit me. Do you guys have any plans on making a size 44 in the waste? Thanks.
Theresa on Feb 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Why do these pants not offer pockets behind the thigh as well, like the rugged flex steel multi pocket pants, or the rugged flex steel cargo multi pocket pants?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that this style is not a multi pocket version.
Do these pants have the slot for knee pad inserts ? If so do they come with pads ?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style is knee pad compatible but will not come with the pants.
Are these pants flame retardant?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style is not flame resistant.
Will these pants be good in colder weather?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm not certain how cold it is where you are, but we live in Georgia. The coldest it has been this winter is high 20s to low 30s at night and in the morning. My husband said they were great for that temperature range. He was warm with no complaints.
Do the knees have the cordura fabric on the outside of pants?
Kimberly B on Sep 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes
What type of closure for the cargo pocket flaps? Snaps or hook and loop? Thanks.
A shopper on Sep 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The pockets will have a snap closure.
There is limited quantity left. When will there be more in stock?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we will be receiving more stock in both colors.
Hello wanted to ask these pants I’m asking about have a the same color throughout the pants and no one party with another color?

What color thread should I buy to match tarmac?
S I on May 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Olive or OD green. They are very similar to military green.
Do these pants have a zipper fly with the button closure?
Paul W on Mar 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style will have a zipper closure.
Do knee pads work with these?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The largest size knee pad fills the insert, the others will move around on you which is annoying. I got the Medium but ended up buying the larger ones because they move around so much, but the larger ones do not, and they are very comfortable. It is okay that you get the large as it conforms to the contour of your knee. Best pants/pads combo I ever had.
Are there any plans to make this pant as well as the other "steel" pants in 31x34? I really want to try them but sometimes your size 32s are actually 33s and therefore your 31s actually fit me instead.

How many belt loops on a 31 waist?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A size 31 will have 5 belt loops.
How much do they shrink?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Minimal shrinking but they are snug form fitting to begin with so i recommend getting a size larger. Very rugged pants witn plenty of flex and ease of movement. Like i said i have large muscular legs and wished they were just a little looser but buying next size up solved that problem
Do the pants have a gusset crouch?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe they do. What turned me against them was the legs were too tight. Gusset or no gusset I could not lift my legs in them without a good deal of resistance. Limited range of motion. Put them on and try lifting your knee up so your thigh is parallel to the floor.
When will you have this available in size 30x34? I know I'm not the only taller skinny guy out there! I really would like to try these.
Matthew S on Sep 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry, we do not manufacture a 30x34 in this style.

When will 31x34 be in stock again? I hope this style hasn't been discontinued!
Anthony on Aug 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not manufacture this style in 31x34.
will these eventually come in big and tall sizes? 52x30 in black would change my life.
