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.

Carhartt Force®

Keep your cool with sweat-wicking FastDry® technology.

All Carhartt Force® gear wicks sweat thanks to FastDry® technology. Force also either fights odors, releases stains with Stain Breaker® technology, or both.
Fast Dry technology has superior wicking action which makes perspiration a memory. The bottom line is that Force works harder, day in and day out, for hard-working men and women, at a price that doesn’t bring out complaints at the kitchen table.

A lil Awkward, great functionality
The material feels a little messy and it’s not as comfortable when you get too hot while working, but it does help keep you cool. I/m not super in love with the pocket flaps at the top of the side pockets, but overall they are a good pair of work shorts.

Favorite shorts ever
They really fit great and are very durable. My other shorts stretch out and start to fit weird half way through the day. I love that these keep their shape.

9 pocket elements - a garment of freedom!
fantastic shorts! I was worried about the cargo flap as I don't like velcro. These flaps do not have velcro, one side of the flap is sewn down the other not. Keeps the flap closed and slick to the body yet very easy to access pocket.
I carry my keys, phone, kleenex, mask, misc small tools all in the pockets - no need to carry purse or bag 1 freedom!!

Are the back pockets real pockets?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the back pockets are 6 3⁄4 " wide by 6-6 3⁄4 " deep (depth depends on the size of the short.)
Are these just an updated version of the ones that have elastic along the back of the waistband? Is fit the same?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a new style for Spring 2019 and it replaces style #102439. The fit is not the same. This style is going to be cut slightly closer to the body than the previous style.
Why don’t the women’s shorts have hammer hooks?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do offer short styles 103040 and 102094 with the utility band for women.
Do these dri quickly if u get them wet? Going camping in August. Need something fast drying and durable.
A shopper on Apr 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I’m in the swimming pool service industry and they are lightweight, comfortable and dry quickly. The material seems very durable.
