My favorite thing about these shorts besides the fact that they are sturdy Carhartts is that my big iPhone fits in the recessed side pocket.

    The lighter weight is great for Texas and my son loves all the pickets. The length is a bit above the knee -- 10 inches -- which is perfect for him. So few items come in 28 inch waist that he was really pleased to have these. I ordered two pair.

    Great shorts especially for what you can get them for here. No signs of any 2nd quality. Some might not like the wide legs but if they were less wide, they would probably cut off circulation when you sat down(which they do not!) so unless you have toothpick legs I would recomend them. I found mine to be true to their 44 size.

    • Answer These have just a regular zipper fly. There are not any pockets near the waist, just regular front hand pockets. There are not any pockets that have any sort of closure. The shorts weigh 7.5 oz. They may shrink slightly on high heat. They are cotton so they may have some wrinkles, but not enough in my opinion to need ironing.

    • Answer Hello NN: I just got a pair of these. They are in the laundry pile now for their first washing, so I can't tell you anything about their behavior after several washings. The pockets are ample but none has any kind of closing device (i.e. buttons, snaps, velcro). (There are no inside pockets but two exterior back pockets.) There are two front, slash pockets, and a watch pocket on the right front, at the waist, above the slash pocket There is a hammer loop on left leg. There is also a folding ruler pocket on each leg, that works for a cell phone as well. The weight is medium. They are comfortable in the heat. Fabric is durable for some rough outside work. Zipper is heavy duty brass, although it seems a little short. I am happy with these shorts. I hope this helps.

    • Answer YKK brass zipper. By inside pocket, do you mean hidden? No hidden pockets. The two rear and left lower are "patch" pockets. They are externally sewn on. The two front pockets, coin pocket, and right lower pocket are pockets like you'd find on any 'ol pair of jeans. That is, there is a white cotton pocket inside the material. None of the pockets have a security closure device. I've washed them once and no shrinkage so far. One hammer loop on the left leg. ...I don't buy things that require ironing. ...I may wear things a little wrinkled, but not overly so.

    • Answer YKK Zipper, Small side pockets for a knife or rule, No fasteners/snaps for pockets. Medium weight great for summer. Washed 5 or 6 times with no shrinkage. There is a hammer loop ,but it was on the left hand side. They do not wrinkle that bad, I wear them for handyman work so I do not need them to have a pressed look.
