The reviews below already state how awesome double front Carhartts are and I agree.
Many of the reviews talk about the break-in period. I have purchased both regular and Washed Duck versions of this pant. The Washed Duck is the same pant that has been pre-washed at the factory in a large machine with rocks to soften them up and break them in. If you love this pant; but, hate the break-in period... buy the Washed Duck version.
Unless the folks at Carhartt lied to me... the two pants start life the same way. One is shipped stiff and needs break in while the other is broken in for you.
I can't explain how much I love these pants. Strong, durable, one tough motha. I have a similar pairs made by Dickies minus the double front knee material, but these are constructed much better.
The break in is not that bad, its a little stiff, but should soften up with some good use. Also, if you want them already worn in, get the Duck variety (same pants, soft and ready to go). I wear these from work, construction, hiking, and general chilling. They won't disappoint.
Side note: they do run a bit baggy, but i do like that.
These are great pants. They are a staple to any closet, so you really can't go wrong with these. I found that at first, they really need to be broken in, and washing them once helps, but don't dry them at first- that is like a step backwards in the breaking-in process. Then just wearing em to work finishes out the process. They are the most durable pants ever. And for any ladies, I am a small chick, and these in 28x32 fit way better than the weird cut on the women-specific Carharts.
I typically burn through a pair of these each year, wearing them almost exclusively from mid-October to mid-May. That's a lot of days, a lot of crawling around in nasty weather, and wiping bike grease, motor oil, dirt, and whatever else I find into 'em. They take a couple weeks and a couple washings to start to feel just right, but they get better and better after that. Double-front is crucial --it insulates better through the winter, and it's more protective. My single fronts last roughly half as long.
These pants are the ultimate in style and function. I have a hard time wearing any other pants to tell you the truth. They are incredibly durable without being too heavy, but I would not recommend going on a major backpacking trip (as Evan noted) with them because they will take up quite a bit of space in a bag, weight or not. If you want a pair of pants that will take a beating and last forever, these are those very pants.
My husband discovered this pant about four years ago and it pretty much became all he wore. He got pretty excited when he saw some on this site, since his were starting to wear out. When they arrived I couldn't understand how he could possibly wear them, they're so stiff, but he just happily put them on and has been wearing them since. It's a guy thing, I guess.
I bought these to start wearing at work when the temperature drops here pretty soon (work/live at 9,000 ft) and the snow starts falling. They are VERY stiff at first, but after the first wash and wearing them around a few times start to loosen up. Excellent quality for the money!
These things are by far the most comfortable pants I own, and they're mad tough. Perfect for work, school, camping, whatever. I use them for everything except backpacking, because they are without a doubt some of the heaviest pants out there.
I spent about 3 weeks over the summer doing trail work up in Maine/ NH
The Carhartts never tore or ripped at the seams and now that their broken in their wicked comfortable
Tractor grease, barbed wire, buckthorn, motor oil, blood and burs. You'll quickly forgive the break in period and realize that these pantalones are built for work and do just that.
