    Great product; very durable; fits well per my husband and very comfortable.

    The duck material is like a thick canvas, and lasts longer than some of the other materials Carhartt offers.

    My husband wears shorts to work everyday, and he has been looking for a sturdy work short.

    I am a contractor and I use these shorts for work, and boy, these are tough shorts. I also wear Riggs Ranger shorts, which I find more stylish, but for the toughest jobs when I need the most durable material, I go to these. These shorts, along with other Carhartt workwear, remind me of how I always used to think of Levi's jeans: Durable. Rugged. Tough as nails.

    The fabric that make up these shorts is 12 oz. ringspun cotton duck. This, my friends, is heavy material. It wears like chain mail and looks good over time. After years of wearing them, they have finally started to get ever so slightly frayed at the hem, just enough to make them look comfortable. And comfortable they are!

    Despite the heavy and rugged material, the cut of these shorts is generous, allowing room to move and stretch, and cool enough to wear on the hottest days. Though the crotch isn't gusseted, there's plenty enough room down there to keep the boys happy, even when the job calls for constant kneeling and climbing. You can wear these on the job all day and be happy... and that counts for a whole lot. Mine haven't shrunk and the fit has been spot-on and true to size.

    Pockets are useful and seem designed by someone who's actually used them to put tools into. They are right-sized, just the right depth, and durable. There are two utility pockets on the right, and one on the left along with a hammer loop that actually works. I really don't like skinny, faux hammer loops that won't take a framing hammer

    Styling isn't these shorts' forte, but I rather like that. These shorts are meant for serious work, and they look it. The proof is in the wearing, though, and not the looking - and these shorts stand up to the toughest use.

    Without a doubt the very best work shorts I have ever owned. I've tried Dickies ( they were too stiff and too tight, even though I bought a size larger than I normally wear ) and Columbia ( they were WAY too expensive .)These shorts are very heavy, but not at all stiff. They wear well and hold up. After being washed several times they will take on a slightly softer color and feel. I buy these literally by the dozen, and wear them everyday. I live in a subtropical climate and even wear these in the winter. They are the perfect work short. Plenty of room, large pockets. A hammer loop, which I never use, but is there if you need one. Not too long, and certainly not too short. These are THE shorts to own.

    I own 8 pairs of these shorts. This pair is a fraud. The quality is poor.
    The fit is poor.
    The zipper is improperly sewn in.
    The side pocket is smaller than normal.
    Again, I own 8 pairs of these shorts and know the product.
    This pair is a fraud.

    Seemed to fit just right and be well constructed. However after the initial wash following the manufacturer's care instructions, they shrank width and lengthwise. Had to pass them on to someone smaller than myself.

    I ordered the "Brown" color (not the "Carhartt Brown" or "Dark Brown") and I wasn't sure what I'd receive because the color swatch for Brown on the product page looks more like a moss green. The Brown I received can be described as a rust color, a shade of orange-brown. It's nice, just wanted to share the info on what the color actually looks like. The pants are the sturdiest I've ever owned, my wife was laughing because it kept its body shape when I took it off and placed it on the ground.

    These shorts are tough! The fit runs slightly large, but they will shrink a little after a few washes. I expect to have them for years because they are so well built. They are also very comfortable. Great range of motion. The fabric seems to repel dirt. I've had them filthy with work grime and they miraculously come clean after a couple of regular washes.

    Color Name: MossSize Name: 36 Verified Purchase
    I wear shorts 365 days a year because I have a tough time finding comfortable jeans and I just like shorts. I am not easy on them and in general most cargo shorts last maybe 3 months before they start fraying and showing wear. These shorts are by far the best shorts out there because they last forever. You might get a little fraying after a year and after a year and a half they are worn down enough to be used as junk shorts. These are worth the money. IMHO buy one in every color and be set for a while.

    Here is a tip. They will be a bit stiff and rough when you first get them. Run them through the was. A couple of times and they will loosen up.
