Reviewer: Gordy, Location: Iowa Fine except for TERRIBLE POCKETS The quality of these shorts is great and so is the fabric and fit and phone pocket. However they have a fatal flaw that is endlessly irritating: the design of the front pockets is VERY POOR. The pocket access is too narrow in width, and also to narrow in thickness. Basically going and out of the pockets sucks and drive me nuts every single time. And I don't have unusually large hands, either. I have numerous other styles of Carhartt shorts, jean, and pants, and none are as bad as these Ripstop shorts in the pocket department, it's disappointing.
Reviewer: SusieQ57, Location: Ozark, AL well-made, comfortable, good looking shorts Purchased these for my husband, and he loves them! They fit the way he likes, and they look good on him. They are the perfect length for him, not to short or long. Wash and dry is a breeze and can be worn dressy or casual. Good buy. Thanks Carhartt!
Reviewer: MasterOfNothing, Location: CA, Occupation: Tradeshow installer Pocket configuration change is no good. I wanted these to be a ripstop version of the 8.5 inch washed duck, they're not. the pockets are different. Hand warmer pockets are difficult to get into, I have smaller hands and it's painful to get into the pockets. The change pocket is really small, it's kinda useless. On the washed duck the change pocket fits a small flashlight, small-med multitool, and still has room. The cellphone pocket is fine, but there's only one. There should be one on either side/leg.
