Carhartt shorts are built to last. Details include pockets that are sewn onto the garment, then turned inside out and sewn again for durability. They have heavy-duty YKK zippers, generous pocket depth for the active worker and multiple utility bands.
Reviewer: Hefarms, Location: Lubbock,tx, Occupation: farmer Excellent fit......poor wear characteristics I am a farmer and work in a variety of conditions. I bought these in May of 2015 and wear them once a week. The material has worn thin by the front pockets. I have one pair that has worn completely through. I also have a pair that I wore while working in the mud to fix a pipeline and we cannot get them clean. I love the fit, but just don't see these getting two years of use. I am also having trouble with the Force T-shirts. I have several other styles of carhartt clothes and have zero issues with them and they are several years old.
Reviewer: waymont, Location: Houston Texas, Occupation: Procurement Manager Toughest work shorts! I love the B357 work shorts! They are built tough in all the places that need re-enforcing! Plus the pocket for the phone is pretty handy! My IPhone 6 is a tight fit but still works great.
Reviewer: Creedmoor, Location: SE TN Excellent quality Great pair of shorts. Fit as expected. I have a pair of these that I have been wearing for several summers and really like them. Decided it was time for a new pair. These fit the same, just a little bigger since the old pair have been washed many many times and have shrunk some over time.
I really like the reinforcement on the right pocket where my EDC knife clip goes. I have a lot of pants and shorts that are worn and tearing in that spot. The old pair with shows no wear in that spot and it looks like the new pair has the exact same reinforcement.
Reviewer: jefferyf6, Location: Oklahoma, Occupation: Military Tough material...should last I am tired of my shorts wearing out. I feel like this pair will last much longer. It is clear that the stitching, and the material are more durable that any other pair that I have owned..
