I decided to wait a year to write my review. I have 5 pair of these shorts and wear them nearly every day at work.......and often when I'm not at work. I have tried many different brands of shorts over the years. These shorts have some definite obvious pros and a couple of serious cons.

First the good (and why I just ordered 3 more pair).
1. They are comfortable, fit well, and the length is not too short, not too long.
2. Probably the biggest reason for the reorder is the stout zipper and riveted button, I can't tell you how many pairs of shorts I've ripped the button
off of and just decided at that point that they were headed for the trash. I have yet to have a button or snap failure.
3. Pockets snap shut, they don't get all wild like velcro pocket flaps do, and I use them to secure stuff all the time, also the pockets have ample
room for my smartphone, 2 sets of keys, and ample wallet space.
In summary they work very well in terms of fit and function.

Now for the bad, and this just might be a deal breaker........
1. These things fade fast, I mean real fast. In just a year, the brown ones are the same exact color as the tan ones, and the green ones are as
light as the tan.....just in a greenish hue. I never use hot water to wash them, and use gain laundry detergent.
2. They stain easily, and because the color fades so fast, they look like hell in a hurry. 2 out of the 5 pair are no longer presentable enough for
work.
3. The fabric tears at the front corner of the pockets, it would be nice if they were reinforced just at this joint.....lots of shorts "fall short" in this
area.

In summary, I have to say that I would recommend them........and I have purchased more. These are my go to shorts mostly because of the function of the snapping pockets and the fit........but durability is seriously lacking for wearing the Carhartt name. I have several other articles of Carhartt clothing, and these are by far the most delicate. I do also have a pair of the ripstop shorts, that fabric seems to hold up much better and is more colorfast.....but I don't like the way they fit as much, they have a slimmer fit.

I have never worn pants like these before. Any brand, any style. These are without a doubt going to be long lasting do to the quality of the material and the way they are sewn together. I have recently retired, not needing long legged pants any longer I tried these and boy am I pleased. These are without a doubt the most comfortable pants I can recall wearing. I am truly happy.

I have 2 pairs of these shorts from several years ago and absolutely love them.Fit/sit well comfortable, can load up the pockets. and durable (no zipper issues, or tearing anywhere). However,they have sustained their fair share of stains. So I was looking to get 2 new pairs. Since my current size requires me to cinch up the belt to hold them up, I figured I'd benefit from 1 size smaller. Wrong!
Totally different fit, different color. Now they're made in China???? come on.
I really like Carhartt, but their quality control is seriously lacking as of late. I guess I'll have to go looking for a pair of Riggs shorts that I like.
Very Disappointed. and to make matters worse, Amazon no longer carries the size that I currently have. Oh well.

These shorts are "relaxed fit" meaning that they ride a little lower than normal cargo shorts. All in all not a bad pair of shorts. Generous cargo pockets and well constructed I expect them to last a long time and I will definitely buy more.

My size is 34 and I had to purchase a size 36 because 34 was way too small.
The product was improperly labeled or cut way too small. Should be made in America.

These and another pair of Carhartt shorts are all I wear during the summer at work.
Nice and thick, very durable.
I would recommend to anyone.

only thing I don't like about these that the other pairs I have is the inseam is 11 instead of 13 and the pockets are not as deep as the others

Runs small and they don't have my size available currently. Which is disappointing, because I like the functionality and durable build of the shorts, but they're useless if you can't put them on. Carhart is known for not sizing their clothes properly in my experience, it's just difficult to know what's going to fit without trying it on in a store. Luckily, I didn't have to pay any return shipping. Hopefully they'll have my size in the future.

I bought three pairs of these at one size, they all fir the same. I have a couple pairs of carhart pants, they all fit the same, but are a different size than the shorts I just bought. The shorts thankfully are consistent, do fit smaller than the pants though by at least one size.

Otherwise they seem to be pretty high quality cargo shorts.
