Ordered 2 for my husband. Returned one. He liked them but I thought they were a little tight though the seat.

Very comfortable
They flex when I move, they breathe well and don’t hold a lot of moisture. I can golf in them or wear them to work in.

Shorts that do it all
these shorts are lightweight but durable. The re-designed pockets have easy access. I want both colors.

Great quality may run slightly big
I normally don’t buy work short I’ll work in an older pair I don’t mind ruining. However I got these as a gift and now I’ll never go back. They are breathable and extremely comfortable. Most importantly they are tough, and durable. These should last a few years with no problem at all. The only thing I’d say is that they seem to run big, I usually wear a 34 but their 34 was way too big for me. I returned them and ended up fitting in a 32 so just try them on before purchasing if you can.

These are great shorts. They are very breathable and when they do get wet they dry very fast.

Great in the Mountains
I usually wear Mountain Hardware or Kuhl shorts and pants when I am hiking in the mountains. I decided to try this one out for a 5 night/6 day hiking and backpacking trip last week and was pleasantly surprised. They worked just as good as the usual brands, dried quickly, and held up to at least one good long weekend of abuse.

Carhartt must believe in the one size fits all mantra that so many companies have now days! One guy was asking for a longer inseam on shorts, but I have the opposite problem I need a much shorter and same for two reasons: one is that I have short legs and the other reason is that I’ve had both knees replaced and when I have the ham of shorts rubbing across my knee caps I get a weird uncomfortable sensation. So why can’t CHR heart offer a wider variety of in the seams on shorts and jeans, or offer to re-him that was in seems there are much too long?!

I would love to see a few more colors...black, navy maybe?

Will these shorts be offered with a longer inseam in the future? Great shorts, just a little too short.
Shane on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do not show plans to offer this style in a longer inseam this year. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
What is the total length of these shorts?
Brett P on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These shorts have a 10" inseam.
Why does Carhartt not make more 13" inseam shorts? I have found only one pair, cotton, but nothing in the Force Extremes category. Why?
Brett P on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry we do not carry the inseam you are looking for in Force Extremes. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
How do these look after taking them out of the dryer? Are they a wrinkled mess or decent looking?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They look good since they're made of a stain-fighting cotton fabric and really don't wrinkle like plain cotton. However, if you throw them in the dryer I recommend going with a size bigger since they will shrink a little.
Are both cargo pockets zippered?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not.
What is the source of this product?
Anna C Staff on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is imported.
