It's the fit I like
July 29, 2012

I'm 6' plus, 160 lbs, age 74. I've worn out plenty of shorts in my day. I have yet to wear out a pair of Carhartts down to the threads. These are no exception. The pocket that holds my jack knife seems to go first - but not with these. I don't have much of a butt to hold my pants up. These stay up without having to tighten my belt, even with the pockets loaded. I have a 31" inseam. These hit above my knee, just where I like it.

Pros: Great design

This is a great pair of name brand, Carharrt shorts - they are durable, high quality and well-fitting - for a discount store price. I wish there were more color options. What a great buy!

great heavy shorts
January 02, 2012

Carhartts are the best value in the world and if they suit your style and needs, you can't do better. I bought these for my husband who wears his shorts out all the time working outdoors. He's 6 feet tall, 32 in waist, and they fit great and look good. I don't like the really long or really short ones and neither does he, and these are perfect. He finds these very comfortable and they seem like the same quality as his other carhartt things, which last longer than anything. They're heavier shorts; not for tropical weather; perfect for our shady mountain location, though.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

nice shorts
August 08, 2012

Nice to be able to put my hands in my pockets easily. Comfortable and nice fitting. Seemed to be nicer than my dickies I usually wear. Only had for a week but seem like would last.

I lived in them all summer...
November 10, 2010

I learned two years ago to buy Carhartt pants/shorts larger than Levi's or khakis (I wear 34" waisted everything, but buy 36" waisted Carhartt) and it's made all the difference. They fit exactly like I want them too. Slightly loose, but not goofy loose. I have 3 pairs of these and wore them all summer long. After 4 months of Idaho sun, home remodeling, lawn mowing, desert hiking, road trips, golfing, and just sitting around, none of them started to show their age. They're softer, and completely unscathed.

Tough, comfortable shorts for warm weather

Tough, comfortable shorts for warm weather wear. Great for working in the yard or training the dog in the field.

I love these shorts. If you are looking for something that is going to last a hundred years these are for you. Size is true so don't be afraid to buy what you would normally get. Buy them!

Best work shorts out there!
December 16, 2012

I bought one pair and then came back and bought three more a week after I bought the first pair. I just returned and bought 4 more pair. These shorts are very comfortable, durable and have many tool pockets. I have never had a better pair of work shorts!

Pros: Great design, Build quality

very soft shorts from the first time you wear them
September 02, 2010

I was impressed with the softness of this short, having only worn them once they felt as if they had been washed many times. Much softer than the previous carhartt shorts I have owned.
