Great pair of shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Wore my first two sets out and couldn't find any other brand that was as comfortable and durable as these. Perfect length and fit. You can hike, bike or just hang out around the fire pounding beers. These shorts can handle it while keeping you lookin good.

Great Shorts

I bought the shorts as a gift for my nephew. He said they are comfy to wear.

Nice work short

Runs a tad small around the waist. Length is great. These should last the rest of the summer and most of next hopefully.

I've worn Carhartts for years and they always hold up well! I wanted to get another pair of these shorts and was disappointment to see that they changed the side pockets a little from what I'm used to. Not a big deal. They are still the same great shorts! I keep my knife and pen in the right side pocket, and my Fenix PD32 flashlight in the left side pocket.

Great short for work and play - I have bought probably 6 pairs over the years and they get the job done. Fit and look great and last. Tough fabric but supple too. Great concert attire. Tons of pockets for "accessories".

Do work

Havent had these shorts all that long but i do not plan on these wearing out anytime soon. Like all the carhartt products ive owned these are quite bulletproof and yet a comfortable short

Little tight, lot of awesome.

Carhartt always fits slightly smaller than jeans, etc. Dickies and Red Kap are the same way, at least in my experience. Size up one size and enjoy these awesome shorts. Perfect length, comes just below the knee, I'm 5' 11'' with shorter than average legs.

Quality is on point. You buy Carhartt knowing their gear is meant to get thrashed and keep kicking. The fabric on these is slightly thinner than their work shorts, making them ideal for warmer months, but they don't seem to sacrifice any durability. Will update if that changes, but I doubt it will.

Update 7/14/16:
These boys are still going strong, still awesome. Got a little fraying here and there and some stains, but I put them through the ringer for real. Just came back to buy 2 more pairs since most of my other shorts are falling apart. Still 5 star.

I work in a warehouse and wear these every day. They have held up very well and are very comfortable.

Nice work shorts.

Carhartt always delivers in work wear. These are also fairly lightweight so they'll be great in the summer.

Good quality, run small

You get what you'd expect from a Carhartt product, good quality at a decent price point. These are canvas, and they are a bit small out of the package and shrink more with washing.

Comfortable work shorts

These shorts are great for work. I haven't had them that long, but they seem sturdy. They are also comfortable and allow you to move with ease. Great if you do any kind of outdoor work, because the material is not too heavy.

super freaking duper

    Great shorts, tough and look good filthy.

    what is the overall length of the shorts?

    Inseam is 10 in. Not sure what you mean by overall length.

    Since these are 100% cotton will they shrink much? I'm returning a pair of Columbia shorts from REI. I wear a 38 waist and those were not true to size.

    Pretty close on sizing. I've washed and dried them and did not notice significant shrinking.

    10 inches.

    love them

      i love these carhartt shorts because they have the same sturdy build that other carhartts have, but they aren't stiff like other carhartt shorts. the canvas is nice and allows for easy, less restrictive movement when hiking. they also dry off fairly fast when wet, not like other tech gear of course, but well. the canvas is a thinner material too, which mean more heat is released and less sweating under the shorts (aka less swamp).

      Nice shorts

        They're Carhartts. Great quality and fit. Colors look just like they do online.

        Great, but size up

          Nice shorts made of sturdy canvas-- good fit and handsome style. But you gotta size up. If a 30, order 32.

          No turning back

            I bought these for my husband a while back and he doesn't want any other short now. Of course, it isn't long before he has dirt/oil/grime stains all over them due to work and play so I keep buying more anyway. HOWEVER, I see there are no more "big boy" sizes offered! UGH. He'll be so disappointed.
