Carhartt Force®

Keep your cool with sweat-wicking FastDry® technology.

All Carhartt Force® gear wicks sweat thanks to FastDry® technology. Force also either fights odors, releases stains with Stain Breaker® technology, or both.
Fast Dry technology has superior wicking action which makes perspiration a memory. The bottom line is that Force works harder, day in and day out, for hard-working men and women, at a price that doesn’t bring out complaints at the kitchen table.

Rugged Flex Icon

Rugged Flex®

Carhartt Rugged Flex® technology moves and stretches with you throughout the day so that whatever you're doing, it's easier to do.

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.

not as pictured
The photo's on these shorts (as well as another pair of pants I bought) show 3 belt loops across the back for 7 belt loops total. The reality is there is only one belt loop in the back (in the middle) for 5 total. Why not as pictured?

Thank you for your feedback. The amount of belt loops will vary depending on the size of the short. Waist sizes 28-31 get 5 belt loops, size 32-42 get 7 belt loops, and sizes 44+ get 9 belt loops.

The most comfortable work shorts/shorts in general I’ve ever had. Light weight and flexible. So far they’re extremely durable especially for being so light weight. They would be great for hiking or anything outdoors as well.

AWESOME PRODUCT BUT NEED SALE!!!!
I bought these for my husband and he LOVES them! He said they are lightweight and very cool on these hot summer days. They have just the right amount of stretch. The only down side, the cost. $49 is pretty expensive for work shorts but I’m hoping to buy more of them if they go on sale.

If you’re buying shorts, none other can compare!
Best work short I’ve ever owned. Super comfortable and yet tough.
I’ve been working in 100+ F weather and these shorts are fantastic. Functional pockets a big plus and extra belt loops help the fit.
Going to buy another pair.
