It is a mid-rise and sits slightly below the waist jean. It is a standard 7.5" rise for the pair I measured. For sizing please refer to: http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10101&storeId=10051&productId=138881&langId=-1
They are not super low-rise - I can't wear jeans like that. They run true to size.
