Most comfortable pants I’ve ever owned!
The pants fit well and are very comfortable. Love all of the pockets! I purchased 5 pair of these to wear to work daily, now I don’t want to wear anything else.

Nice work pants. Listed as relaxed fit, but the fit in the butt feels odd. Tight and tend to snug up.

Great Pants Problematic Sizing
Overall very pleased with these pants. Lighter than the rugged flex rigbee and heavier than the force extreme cargo pant. It really hits the sweet spot between durability and breathability. I’m a geologist so long pants are required even in the muggy heat of summer. The loose fit helps with letting air move inside the pants as you move. I really wanted to like the force extreme cargo pants, but the material felt just a little too flimsy and the side hand pockets are tiny. They were however super comfortable and cool. My only gripe with the tappen cargo pants is the fit which is typical for Carhartt pants. I’m 5’9” and 220#. In casual jeans I’m a 36x30. In these a 40x30 fit best. I’ve definitely got a bit of a “dad bod” but I’d guess that I’m thinner than 60-70% of the people on any given job site. The waist where the pants button is much tighter than other brand pants., but is plenty baggy just below this area. These pants are also about an inch and a half longer than other brands. If Carhartt made pants in a 28” length I would have bought those, but I’ll just have to get these hemmed to a slightly shorter length. The sizing issues are the only reason don’t give these 5 stars. Order a size or two up in the waist when ordering and possibly a size shorter.

Great cargo pant
I purchased the cargo pant for my husband for Father's Day and I must say I really like how the pants fit him. The cargo style gives him that added flap pocket for items that can get loss when doing forestry work, such as keys!

Excellent summer work pants
The lighter weight of these pants combined with their durability makes them excellent for use in the 80-105 degree daytime temperatures we have in central Washington during summer. The do a great job of protecting you from all the scratchy nasty vegetation here in the semi-desert and the pockets are more than sufficient for most things you might carry (small steel measuring tape, knives, small pistol, etc.)

Good pants
I wore it for the first time today. Very comfortable, fits right. Cargo pockets are a little low to comfortably walk far with stuff in them.

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.
