Well made and good price. Women’s clothing needs to be made stronger this way and have reasonable costs!

Runs small because they dont have rib knit waistband
I originally bought some ORIGINAL FIT SMITHVILLE SHORT which fit perfectly at a size 16. So I thought I'd try Original Fit shorts with longer in seam in same size. These fit lower below waist and they are don't have "mid-rise rib-knit waist that's designed to prevent a gap in the back" For both reasons you need to use the measurement of your high hip instead of your waist.

Not my favorite Carhartt product
Typically I like Carhartt pants and shorts. These were a disappointment. They fit great, however, the first day I wore them, my screw driver put a hole in the pocket. Please make the women's pants as rugged as the men's. We are not out there just to look pretty. If we are buying your product, we want it to be functional.

Runs Small
These are cut smaller than traditional Carhartt sizing. I suggest ordering one size larger than normal.
I usually order the Crawford shorts (style #101101, size 10). They are the absolute best. But the current Crawford short is not as durable and length is shorter. So I ordered these Rugged Professional Original Fit shorts. To my surprise, I found they offer none of those features compared to the original Crawfords.
A shame Carhartt has changed the formula that was synonymous with quality and consistency.

Smaller than expected
Bought size 4 like all my other carhartt work pants and can barely fit in these... hopefully they stretch, because I will not be paying shipping again to send them back and then again to order a new pair. Other than that, great material and shape, just tighter around the hips and waist than expected.

Perfect for Serious Yard Work; Lots of Pockets
These shorts are tough and durable, with heavy duty pockets to accommodate my hand-held pruning shears and my favorite hand-held knife for weeding. I recommend them. I would really love them if they had a bit more stretch in the fabric. There is not a lot of "give" to the fabric for bending and stretching. But they are certainly rugged and will stand up to any kind of activity.

Cut like Men’s shorts
They’re a little on the long side; I think the models are much taller than me. Very tight in the butt/hips/upper thigh. Might be good if you’re narrow waisted. I’m 5’4” and 155 with an hourglass shape. I returned these and bought the crawford cut instead. Far better fit for the female shape. They seemed like good quality and the side pocket is nice but the crawford has side pockets on both sides and is a less plastic feeling material. Recommend them instead.

Perfect Work Short
Short fit very well, material to the touch appears to be extremely durable. There are more than enough pockets for all my work related gear. Normally I do not buy this type of product online due to being a petite woman I prefer to try on first but decided to take a chance and glad I did. I would definitely recommend this short very good value
