There's enough stretch to them for easy, unrestricted movement. They're secured with a mid-rise rib-knit waist that's designed to prevent a gap in the back.

They are comfortable but the elastic waistband makes it difficult to hold anything like a tape measure. You need to wear a belt if you need to hook anything on your shorts.

Comfy and great fit
Got a pair for work and I work in Landscape so my clothes are always getting pretty gross. Well bought a pair that have the stain resistance and they do actually stay pretty clean. They are also the best fitting shorts I could find.

No Daisy Dukes for ne
I ordered these to reolace my relaxed fit Carhartt shorts that are no longer available. I was afraid the fit would be too fitted. I love the elastic back waistband and the fit is perfect!

What size are the leg openings, for size 14? Thanks!
Jennifer P on Jun 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The leg opening on a size 14 will be 25 1/2 inches.
How do these handle sweat? I am a sweaty person, especially working outside during Kansas summer heat, and sometime sweat through pants. Will these show sweat easily orhide it well?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the dark green ones, and haven’t had a problem with sweat. The material is thick and sturdy and doesn’t get soiled easily. The color would definitely help too if you were to sweat through. I live in California and have worn them a few times all day outside in the summer. I think they’re definitely worth a shot.
