    Nothing short of really tough.

    While you're in the middle of a good, long hike, the last thing you want to be worried about is your pants. Carhartt's Force Tappen Cargo Shorts won't let you down, though. These hardcore shorts are known for their durability with their lightweight, ripstop fabric, so you can take these shorts through thistles and thorns, but no promises that they'll save your calves. A gusseted crotch and FastDry technology make the Force Tappens easy to move in and dry to hike in as they wick away excess moisture. Plus the deep, secure-closing pockets keep all your belongings where they need to be, but close at hand. These shorts' Stain Breaker also makes sure that no matter you get yourself into, you'll be able to get it out in the wash, from berries, to grass, to olive oil gone rogue from dinner.

    • Lightweight and durable shorts for tough hikes and work alike
    • Moisture-wicking fabric for dry hikes
    • Stain-resistant fabric keeps fabric spot-free
    • Gusseted crotch allows for mobility while you work
    • Securely closing pockets keep belongings from falling out
    • Item #CHT00BV

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 31
    • Height: 5'1"
    • Weight: 148lbs

    I bought these a three pair of these shorts to replace my wearing out work shorts. So far these shorts are fairly comfy and are quality built.

    Nice but had to return

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    These looked like such great shorts but due to fit I ended up having to return them. The material seems super durable and they're pretty well constructed. Nice pockets, well sewn seams, and the "Yukon" color is a a nice dark khaki without being too yellow-y. I think these really would have lasted for a while. Just the fit didn't work out. I think they're pretty true to size, but they fit a little slimmer in the rear and thighs, which is where the shorts were bunching up.

    Great Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 inch
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Great shorts for every day work life. Great comfortable and very durable.
