Love them
Love these pants. They are very comfortable and lots of pockets. I did the course for size and it picked small. They felt too tight so I ordered a medium to see how they felt and they were perfect.

Not true to size
I am 5'11" tall and 130lbs. I purchased these leggings in a TALL (even though I knew they would still be a little short on me) and in the size recommended to me through TrueFit which was a Small (4/6) which I typically wear a size 6 in pants. Upon first appearance, I really liked the leggings! They are heavy duty, have loads of pockets, and look like they would be very comfortable. However, the leggings do not have very much stretch to them like normal leggings. When I went to put them on, I could barely get them over my thighs. I am a very slender person and I don't think anyone at my height could've fit into them. I have returned them and wanted to buy a large, since they were that tight, but Carhartt has been sold out of the large talls for a while now. I'm hoping they get them back in stock soon because I would really like to reorder in a size that fits!

Durable, comfortable, so many pockets!
Love these Leggings. They're durable enough to wear at work and have more than enough pockets for all of my things; phone, keys, cards, knife, etc. Just bought my second pair and will probably buy another pair every time a new color is released. I'm throwing out all of my second class leggings, I don't wear them anymore.

Carharrt must finally be listening to us women because these pants are awesome!!
Carharrt is stepping up their game finally!!! I never write reviews honestly who has the time but I needed to say how amazing these pants are!! I'm a dairy farmer I put these things through the wringer at work.im also a with thick thighs and a big but and these are perfect!! They don't snag on throrns or jagged fence, they are flexible and comfortable I have 2 pairs now a medium and a large so I can throw another pair of thermals underneath in the cold ( a wooly thick pair would be amazing hint hint carhartt) the pants are some combination of polyester and Spandex and are rather thick so if you get very hot in the summer I recommend a pair of shorts (carharrt smithvile are my go to now) instead but these are a three season pant. They have pockets for days every thing gets put in there notebooks knife wallet phone pens markers snacks and tools. One thing that I noticed is they are not as heat resistant as your canvas pants a small patch of my pants melted when working right next to the engine of the milk house pump there is a small hole now. But what can you expect from synthetic material nothings perfect. When it comes down to it I could wear them just about everyday.

Incredible Purchase
I absolutely love these leggings!! The only thing I would change is to give them belt loops or a drawstring (or both!). So durable for on our farm. Easy to clean, and can easily be worn out and about as pants...lol

More colors please! I have both the black and the olive.
I would absolutely love a Navy blue, Steel gray and Maroon!
I will never buy leggings for everyday wear ever again, these are sooooo worth it!

Best leggings for travel, outdoor work, and gardening
Im going on a trip to backpack Central America and got these leggings for my trip. Im 6'0'' 150 lbs. and I ordered a tall small. They fit great! no gaping in the back when I squat or bend over. Come up to a perfect height above my hips. Wonderful quality-- I know I'll have these for years.

Great Fashionable Work Pant !
comfortable, durable and look great! Finally a work pant that doesn't make me look frumpy. I ordered medium, they are a little big in the waist but will fit perfect with some long underwear come fall. I definitely will be placing another order for a small pair to sport this spring working on the land. Love !

Needs drawstring
If you have a big butt/thighs, but small waist you will need to retrofit extra elastic in the waistband to keep them from gapping a/o falling down. This is easy to do and does solve the problem, but you'd think for $60...
Also suggest ordering tall, even if you don't think you need to because the double knees on the regular are too high even though the overall length is adequate.
It is worth the trouble, though. There's nothing else like them.

From a petite woman's perspective.
These pants are durable and snag resistant, making them great for hiking (thorns) or barn work. Nice, thicker quality material. They are my go-to pants b/c I don't want to wear thin leggings in public, but jeans are too uncomfortable. My only complaint is that they fall down on me. For reference I'm 5'2" 104 lbs with a 24" waist. If they had an internal drawstring, they'd be perfect. Or if they made an xxs. Sizing down would fix my problem, but I wear the xs, so that's not an option. I love them so much I wear them a ton despite having to pull them up periodically. I've had them for about 1 year, and they still look brand new after I wash all the dirt/mud off them. ;)

Will Carhartt be making these leggings in petite sizes in the future? I'm 5"3, and I have the regular ones, but I have to roll them up to wear them.
Natalie M on May 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
Are these comfortable to wear in hot weather?
A shopper on May 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The material is quite thick and very densely woven. I wear them as if they were thin (~1mm) neoprene wet-suit pants, only very tough, with pockets and knee pads etc. In hot dry weather they would be very "hot", in wet conditions, and or windy/wet, they do cool off a bit with evaporation. For me these are "working wet-suit" pants. When you are wet, you need a skin-tight fabric to keep you warm. In very cold weather these can be used as "skins" under a shell or dry-suit, etc.
Are you going to make these in petite sizes?
Terry C on Apr 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your input with Product Design.
Is there a timeline for adding more Tall sizes to your stock?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We expect more XL tall in black in December. We do not have plans to restock the Olive in Tall sizes at this time.
I'm a soon to be electrical apprentice, would these be appropriate attire for that kind of work? And if I range from size 0 - 2, is it possible the smallest size be too loose? Do they shrink at all?
Jamie R on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are very fitted and may not be work appropriate or comfortable. They stay true to size and keep their shape after wash. Hope this helps.
Are these FR?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style is not Flame Resistant.
Does the %5 spandex include a natural latex additive, and/or does the whole garment have any latex added anywhere? I have a latex allergy and try to avoid certain fabrics.
p h on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While our specifications do not call for any latex to be used in this style, we cannot guarantee that trace amounts of latex won't be found in the spandex.
Hello, how stretchy are these? Do they stretch in the waist band, thigh area or less so?
Eden C on Apr 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Edan they have good stretch, I have found one pair gets more loose in the waist than the other and they have nice thigh area, I have large calves so I went with the large 12-14 I tried the 10’s fit everywhere good but the calves they were just too tight, a great durable pant.
How long does shipping to Canada take?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Shipping to Canada is 7-14 business days.
When will the black small be in stock?
Laura G on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We plan to restock the first week of July 2018.
when will you restock the small olives? This question has been asked several times before so obviously there is a demand that's not being met, PLEASE RESTOCK YOUR SMALL WOMEN'S CARHARTT!
omfggg_restock on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We currently have stock in the color Olive, size Small for the force utility legging.
Are these leggings boot cut?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the leg opening is fairly snug around the ankle.
Will these be available in Olive again soon?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, it will not be in the near future.
Big butt, small waist. Can the waistband be easily modified to tighten it up? Or are you going to put belt loops a/o drawstring soon? (PS Your model looks like a boy)
Rissy on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I added elastic to the waistband by opening up the seam on the inside and threading through a 2-inch length of elastic. It didn't take long, and worked very well. I no longer have issues with the waistband stretching out & the leggings falling down. I have two pairs, and did this to both.
DO YOU KNOW WHEN SIZE M WILL BE BACK IN STOCK?
millerre on Feb 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We currently have the M in stock.
How do the inner seams hold up to friction? I've got thick thighs that tend to destroy pants.
TayaR on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the same issue and have found these to be very durable. Great pants

A shopper on Feb 11, 2018

Are they csa approved?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These pants do not have any type of a CSA rating.
Will these come in different colors soon? Would love to have them in dark blue, olive green and dark brown.
A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are expected to have a new color for Fall 2018
Will you offer other colors?
Make them in TALL to prevent the pants from dropping after bending over. I pull them past my ankles to allow for some give yet the inseam requires room! Love the product, fabric, durability and look! Help!
A shopper on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
I absolutely love these, and would buy them in every color, disappointed to see only black . Are there any plans to make these in a variety of colors?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are hoping to expand the color option. We should be introducing a new color Fall 2018.
Please make these in more colors, they are amazing!!!
Is this something planned for the line?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are hoping to come out with a new color for Fall 2018.
Are these shiny or matte looking?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are somewhat in the middle - not too shiny, but not totally matte either.
are these pants insulated?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This style is not insulated.
When will these be restocked in size small again? It’s December 28th 2017 so just wondering when stock will be. I know the questions been asked, but that’s was a while ago.
A shopper on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We expect more small/black in July.
Do you just wash and dry or will they shrink?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We recommend following the care instructions for this product to prevent shrinkage. Machine wash cold like colors. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low. Do not use fabric softeners. Cool iron. Do not iron ornamentation. Do not dry clean.
Not so much a question, but a statement? If the band widens too much, just sew belt loops on. Shouldn't be too hard..
