Carhartt Ripstop Shorts
on August 29, 2012
The following is my review of Carhartt's Ripstop Shorts. I already own two pair of the Ripstop Work Pants so I know how great Carhartt constructs their clothing. These shorts are constructed every bit as well as the pants. I learned from the pants that shrinkage from washing is not a concern. I ordered these shorts true to size and they fit perfectly. The length hits me right at the knees and the waist sits perfectly at the top of my hips. The thing I like most about this style of shorts and pants from Carhartt is all of the pocket space. They have the four regular pants pockets, two in front and two in back. These pockets are great for your wallet, coins etc. The pockets are heavily stitched and re-enforced with metal rivets. Located on the thighs are two large cargo pockets that snap closed with heavy duty metal snaps. The cargo pockets are tall and roomy, having room for a bottle of water or plenty of room for digital camera etc. On the left thigh is cell phone pocket. My LG phone fits perfectly into it. On the right side is a narrow pocket designed for pens and pencils. I love this pocket as I now always have at the ready a pen, a sharpie and a 80 lumens pen-light. These shorts are excellent. I highly reccommend them to everyone.
