Great work pants or for everyday in the outdoors. Carhartt should make them in other camo paterns. Almost rugged enough to be considered brush pants (but not quite). Great pockets for just about anything you need to carry with you on a walk about.

  • “Are the lengths true to size. I'm probably a 35 length so at times I can get away with a 34 length. Thanks. ”
    Asked by James Gerard from New York on 6/21/2017 5:25:20 PM
    • Yep, I'm a 34 and a 34 fit fine.

  • “How "relax" are they? I wear 30/31 waist 30 length and run into an issue with the inseam being waaaay to high/tight.”
    Asked by Bluedog6 from Virginia on 4/12/2017 8:23:54 AM
    • It is difficult to answer. I am a typical 35 waist, 34 length. They fit perfectly. I seem to like all Carhart products. LL Bean has a similar pair of pants, but the LL Bean variety is far lighter weight.

    • You should have no issue at all. Plus good size pockets add bending room too.

  • “How much will these shrink after washing?? The length right now is perfect but if it shrinks they may be too short. What is your experience and feedback??”
    Asked by JR the photographer from White Mountains, NH on 10/21/2014 4:10:11 PM
    • I haven't found that they shrink very much at all in any dimension. If they do, it is hardly measurable. I've never considered it to be an issue.
      Answered on 10/21/2014 6:44:18 PM by AW from NJ
    • Hello, no they wont shrink at all. They fit good at the waist but not tight, as long as you dry them normally and don't cook them you'll be all set!
      Answered on 10/21/2014 8:05:09 PM by Jon from VA
    • I have experienced very little shrinkage, if any.

About Carhartt

If you're looking for durable, comfortable clothing and outerwear, few other brands can compete with Carhartt. Although the venerable Carhartt clothing company has become one of the most respected names in American work wear today, the brand comes from humble roots. Founded in 1889, the family-owned business started out in Detroit, Michigan with just two sewing machines and five employees. During The First World War, the company made uniforms for the US military and also manufactured work clothing for the Navy during WWII. Today, Carhartt clothing is still known for robust fabrics, top-notch construction and a great fit. From rugged Carhartt jackets and coveralls to jeans and shirts, this is one brand you can trust to deliver the real deal -- every time.
