My go-to shorts this summer!
So comfortable and easy-case....these have been my go-to shorts this summer. Lots of pockets to hold tools, phone, keys, etc... Soft yet durable fabric that moves with you. I'd love to see a slightly shorter option and more colors!

Just what I was looking for.
The shorts are just what I wanted. They are rugged yet comfortable. There are lots of deep pockets so I can carry all my tools and my phone and not worry about them falling out when I bend down. The length is perfect. Easy wash and dry. They do not shrink. I would recommend going smaller if you are right in between sizes as they do give a bit as you wear them throughout the day. I would recommend them and I am buying another pair.

Love these shorts!
I love these shorts! They are perfect for my garden and yard work, so many pockets. There’s a space for everything from phone to ibuds to pruners! Didn’t buy these shorts to look great, but over the hill on functionality which is exactly what I wanted. Would love it if there was a short with softer fabric AND all the pockets!

My Favorite Shorts!
I love them! I am wearing a pair right now and they are so comfortable. Nice deep pockets and the side pockets hold tools or your phone. I ordered the first two in March and the other day placed another order for two more. Great for working outside and every day wear.

Great Shorts the description isn't accurate though.
I usually wear the Crawford shorts, but I decided to change things up and try these out. They fit similar to the Crawford shorts, but unfortunately, they are a 10 inch inseam and they do not have a hammer loop as the product features state. I still like them but was disappointed when they didn't have some the main features I bought them for. Still great quality and fit as always from Carhartt!
