  • Built to move with Rugged Flex stretch technology
  • Comfortable fit through the seat and thigh with more room to move

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.

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.

Rugged!
Awesome! Durable, fit true to size. Waiting for other colors to come in my size and I will order more. I gave all five stars except for quality because I had a few threads that needed trimmed.

Runs to small
Purchased the same size I wear in other Carhartt products. The shorts were at least two sizes to small. Not true to size at all.

Response from Carhartt
We appreciate your loyalty and are sorry the sizing was not as expected. There is a small variance in the garment industry, but if the shorts seem significantly "off," they may be defective. Please feel free to reach out to us at 1 800 833 3118 for further assistance.

favorite cargo shorts
I'm super happy with these shorts. The pockets are great, i especially love the drop in phone pocket on all the carhartt shorts i own, but on these shorts in particular. They stretch well and don't restrict movement climbing up and down ladders, and stay comforable on hot days. I ended up ordering a second pair after i got the first pair.

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.
