I purchased two pairs of the Rigby 5-pocket work pants at the end of January. Exactly one month later, both pairs have multiple pulls and runs in the fabric. One pair has a run about 4-inches long down the leg. I called Carhartt customer service and they assured me that it was a defect and not indicative of the quality of the product. They agreed to send me a shipping label to return them for inspection/replacement under warranty. I went ahead and ordered two more pairs to wear in the mean time. When the new pants arrived, I inspected them much more closely. Sure enough, one of the pairs has a two inch run in it brand new shipped directly from Carhartt. This product is made in Nicaragua and as far as I am concerned, it should stay there.
