My new favorite shorts, both for work and casual. I've ordered many pairs. Love that they don't have the balloon looking cargo pockets. I'm always carrying a clip knife or a tape measure so the small piece of reinforced fabric on the front pocket is awesome. I get lots of compliments on how nice the... Read More

    In my head they only get a 1 star... I have been wearing these shorts for a very long time. But I find that the longer I wear them the smaller they get. Really? I started out buying them in a size 40. But they shrunk and I had to order a 42, then a 44... and now what? A 46??? What the heck is going on with these shorts?

    I love these, I have two pairs that I've been wearing for a few years. Very durable, very comfortable. The cargo pockets are all ripstock -- you can shove rocks, bent nails, keys, or whatever without worry. The "regular" side pockets are more typical, but deep. These are better at keeping you cool than you'd think with the thick fabric -- I think the little bit of stiffness means that air can circulate a little bit as opposed to just sticking to your leg.

    And yes, what everybody else says -- BUY ONE SIZE BIGGER.

    I always order clothes from Sierra. The price on these shorts is about 1/3 of the prices elsewhere when as coupon is used. I never had any issues with size or blemishes

  • Question “Why is there never a size 31" waist?”

    Asked on 7/1/2015 6:52:34 PM by TwoSizesTooSkinny from Buffalo NY
    • Answer In some lines, Carhartt makes 31, 33 and 35 inch waists. In general, the 100% cottons run a bit smaller than the poly cotton blends.

    • Answer I would suggest a size 32. These are cargo pants and look best with a loose fit. My son got a pair to wear to work as a greenskeeper at a golf course and he LOVES these shorts. They are rugged with lots of pockets for tools and gear. I tried to order a pair for myself and they didn't have my size.

    • Answer Suggest you buy a size 32 and use a belt, these shorts run quite slim, I could have purchased a size larger to have "work room". Still a good deal.

    • Answer I really don't know. My husband is 5'11 - 150lbs, and the 32's fit him in the shorts.The ripstop isn't a light fabric, but very durable.

    • Answer I really don't know. you would have to ask the manufacturer. Perhaps, real men don't have that small of waist! ;)
