Men's relaxed-fit, 11-inch cargo shorts built for ultimate durability.

Loading up the boat or doing repairs around the house, there's nothing these men's cargo shorts can't take. The durable ripstop construction is reinforced with Cordura® at high-wear zones like the pocket edges. They have just enough stretch for unrestricted movement and a relaxed fit so you can bend, squat, and get the job done.
  • 8-ounce, 59% cotton / 39% polyester / 2% elastane ripstop
  • Built to move with Rugged Flex stretch technology
  • Comfortable fit through the seat and thigh with more room to move
  • Comfort flex waistband construction
  • Comfortable gusseted crotch for more stretch between the legs
  • Cordura®-reinforced ledge utility cargo pockets with drop in opening at top of pocket
  • Cordura®-reinforced front ledge pockets
  • Flex Cordura® top full capacity back pockets
  • Cordura® utility loop
  • Inseam: 11"
  • Imported

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.

Great Shorts
I would recommend the shorts for sure, but the website was difficult to navigate when buying the shorts and a gift card in the same order.

Excellent cargo shirts
Good fit. I wasn’t sure about the snaps on the cargo pockets but ended up really liking that feature. Overall good quality product that I really enjoy.

Decent but could be much improved
Last time I buy something without trying it on first. Good enough but I’m not at all happy with the pockets, unlike previous Carhartt shorts I’ve had.

Very well made and fits great
These Carhartt shorts are very well made. They fit very well. I really like all of the pockets. They are extremely durable. I have other pairs of Carhartt shorts that show very good durability.

Best Carhartt’s yet!
I first bought the pant model and they are amazing. The shorts are just as good. Fantastic details. Inside waist has a nice liner, belt loops are in the right spots and plentiful. They are just made right, period!

Rugged and comfortable
Rugged that’s all I can say, comfortable to wear, moves with your body and dry quickly. Best part is they are reinforced in the right places for my tape measure, hammer and the pockets hold up well to multiple tools. Now I need to buy more of these great work shorts.

Do these come in 13” inseam?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that this style will only come in an 11 in inseam.
Do these have snaps or velcro? Do you have any cargo shorts with snaps on cargo pockets?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The rugged flex cargo pairs I have, are snaps. I think I have an older pair, different model, that are Velcro, but most of my carhartt cargo shorts are all snaps.
