Rugged Flex Icon

Rugged Flex®

Carhartt Rugged Flex® technology moves and stretches with you throughout the day so that whatever you're doing, it's easier to do.

Rugged Flex® garments must meet the Carhartt's defined standards for stretch, recovery, and durability, so when you put on a Rugged Flex® garment, you know it won't let you down. You'll find Rugged Flex® in shorts, shirts, pants, jackets, and boots because you need gear that helps you move, not gear that holds you back.

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.
