my favorite shorts ever
These are my favorite shorts ever as they are extremely durable and attractive. I've worn them while sliding down scree slopes or climbing over logs and boulders while backpacking. I've also worn them (with button-down shirts and other more classy tops) to summer events, dates, and parties. Their colors hold well through repeated washing. I've also purchased several pairs because they are such high quality for the money.

Carhartt Cargo Shorts
I'm easily a size 8. Everything I buy is size 8 and is just right. Granted, I did lose a little weight recently but my old size 6 clothing, while wearable, is tight. I ordered size 8 for these shorts and they were too big in the waist. I wanted a snug fit (no gaps) in the waist because if you weigh the shorts down with things - cell phone, hammer, gardening tools, whatever you want to hang from the loops or pockets while you work - you are going to get some sag. The last thing I want is to *have* to wear a belt to keep my shorts up. So I reordered in size 6 and they are perfect! The waist is not tight (I'd say there's still a good half-inch gap, which gives me breathing room when I sit), but it's not loose enough to slide down off my hips. No part of these shorts are tight in the smaller size. I couldn't be more pleased! The pockets are nice and deep (none of the finger-room only junk you get for most women's shorts and pants these days). It is a nice thick canvas but not so thick you wouldn't want to wear them in the heat of summer, and soft. They're extremely comfortable. Quality stitching ensures these shorts will last me years to come.

Carhart cargo shorts
They are very comfortable, very little wrinkling which is a plus. Heavy material so you know they are durable but not hot or uncomfortable. They fit well and I would purchase again.

Perfect length and durable
These shorts were the perfect length, not too short, not too long. High quality thicker material means these shorts will last a long time. Love the fit.
