Good and Bad
I really like these pants and hate to rate them only a three star. They are extremely comfortable. Unfortunately for me they lack durability in the seat. Two of the three pair that I own easily and one unknowingly got holes in the backside. One from just sitting on a rubber bungee strap. The other I had no idea until my daughter said Dad, you got holes in your pants.
Second time wearing these holes appeared.

Good for working in.
I work at a chemical plant, my particular job is dealing with powder. I tend to get sweaty at times and also we have to do alot with water. so its not uncommon for me to get wet. i will say these pants do wick water very well. I will also say i do believe they are cooler temp wise than my jeans. I have really enjoyed the cargo pockets also the normal pockets are nice too.

Returned item - Not the cargo pants I was looking for.
I did not care for the material or design and returned it. The Carhartt cargo pants I purchased several years ago (and still wear) are made from a durable cotton fabric, which I much prefer. I hope you can again offer the cotton cargo pants.

Cheap Thin material
I went and lifted my leg to get into my SUV and heard a rip and saw that just below the zipper, my pants completely ripped and shredded apart. What is more frustrating is these pants aren't even a year old yet!
Pants aren't even a year old and I went to lift my leg to get into my vehicle.  Not worth $50!

Nice pants. A little tight in the waste.
I like the material and color. These fit a bit tighter than other Carharts in my size.

What stain removers are safe? I used dawn dish soap and a Fels-Naptha bar to remove a small trailer grease spot and now there is a quarter sized white spot on where the stain used to be. I just bought these pants less than a week ago. They are the Yukon shade if it matters.

How are there for hiking and camping? Light, dry quick, durability, etc.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For day hikes, I’m sure they’re great. I wouldn’t overnight in them. “Cotton kills” is still true. They dry faster than cotton usually does, but I wouldn’t bet against hypothermia on how quickly they dried in my house. Also, they’re a touch on the heavy side...

Car camping— you bet. Backpacking— find something designed for it.
