The Carhartt Women's Force Utility Legging is a legging that's got plenty of muscle. Nylon and spandex combine in this knit fabric legging that isn't for yoga. It's all about working hard on the farm and getting the job done. Maybe throw in a hike afterwards. Force and FastDry technology work together to wick sweat and dry fast. The pant runs close to the body and won't get caught on anything along the way. Abrasion-resistant pockets hold strong and reinforcements at the knees keep you outdoors longer.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the BEST legging EVER [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was on the fence about getting these leggings but am SO glad I went for it! The pockets have been invaluable- I wondered what the heck I’d use them for but the answer is everything! I put my keys, my pocket knife, my baby’s bottle, my beer, pocket flashlight, etc. how the heck did we live w out pockets in leggings before!?!? If you’re a mom on the go, these are a must. I wear a size 2 in Carhartt women’s pants & got these in extra small, they are comfortable & perfect!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product - just not for the job-site I was so excited to see a black fitted work pant that I immediately ordered two pairs. I am 5'8" 110lbs and ordered XS. The material feels strong and durable with just enough stretch. The fit is pretty much like a jegging. I love almost everything about these but unfortunately, I can't imagine wearing this on a real job-site amongst dozens of male construction workers. This is really no fault of carhartt's, I just can't imagine walking onto a site where I already experience a steady stream of "honey's," "sweetheart's," and sleazy innuendos - in skin-tight pants. Please, pleeeaaase bring in more fitted workpants in black. P.S. Hi Vis for women!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Have them in all 3 colours I am a gardener in a cooler climate. I love these pants and bought them in all three colours. My favorite is the grey and black. I don't think there is enough contrast in the navy and black, and black just looks like you wore out the knees because of the patches, in my opinion. They are not tight-tight like regular leggings so they feel more work-pant-like but still look good enough to wear casually outside of the workday. I appreciate the reinforced knees, I alternate putting my cellphone in the back pockets or the leg pocket. I like how they move on my body. They are high enough waisted that when I bend down, my backside is still covered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Leggings, Lots of Room for Improvement! These leggings are great. They are a breath of fresh air in a world of see through, no pocket leggings. The pockets are fantastic! The fit is strange, specifically the waistband, which had no stretch at the top. I had to size up just to get them over my butt and thighs. They are slightly too large and baggy because of this, and I am constantly pulling them up. A completely stretchy, much wider (and softer) waist band is needed. Also, please make these in petite lengths! I am 5'2" and the knee pads do not even come close to being where they should be, and the crotch is too long. I have to roll the bottom up quite a bit. Why offer tall but not petite?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THESE FIT!!! look fab As a petit person, (5 ft, 100lbs) I'm always looking for work clothes that fit. Not everyone is 5'5''. So tired of buying clothes in the kids or boys section. I'm up and down on scaffolding all day in all sorts of weather, and usually blow out the knees. I love the thick knees and numerous pockets. Don't need to wear knee pads! AND the knee is in the correct spot; so the ankle length is perfect. Uheard of! The material is thick but not gross. Oh dear, I don't want to get them dirty. My only complaint is that I would love belt loops. Please ADD LOOPS! Thank you for carrying XS and size 2 S. Your other pants ( not leggings) are still big. Oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely sturdy and stylish I love them. I have both the different weights of these pants. I have a farm with goats and exotic deer. They are perfect for working with the deer as fawns hooves are sharp and the pants haven’t been scratched, ripped or gotten holes. They also kept my legs from getting that way too. They are also pretty warm but not over heating for our south Texas winter where it’s 45 in the morning and 80 at midday. And the pockets are INCREDIBLE!!! My iPhone 12 Pro Max fits in all 3 pockets because the are huge. But not baggy so things fall out. I have 4 pair and I’m definitely going to get some more. I normally hate pants period but I love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy & Functional The size runs in such a way that there is a comfortable bit of room...most leggings or stretch jeans will suffocate your legs into sausages, these are just right! The pockets are amazing, deep and well set so that my huge phone fits in my pocket without falling out. There is even a small side pocket good for pocket knives with a hidden flap inside to keep items from falling out. The pants had the craftsmanship I would expect from Carhartt, and these have quickly become my favorite legwear. Give us some more colors Carhartt! And thank you for innovating a product that is sturdy yet attractive and meets the versatility of today's women. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new everyday leggings These quickly became my everyday leggings for my rural life - chasing chickens, hiking with dogs, riding horses, gardening, and all the chores associated with life in the mountains. I love how hay and dog hair brushes right off, the pockets are plentiful, the double knees add durability, and most of all, they are comfortable. I pull them on and forget about them; no tugging, adjusting, figeting over them. Make more colors! I got the brown (not Carhartt brown but a darker brown) midweight and will definitely be trying the heavyweight this winter. If you work outside and want a versatile legging, I highly recommend these.

NATURAL WAIST: Bend side to side and find the natural bend in your body; this is your natural waist. Please note this may not be the smallest point.

HIP / SEAT: Measure at the fullest part of your hips, approximately 8" below the natural waist.

INSEAM: Measure from your crotch down to the desired length on body. You may also measure pants that you currently own and like. Lay the garment flat and smooth out. To get the inseam length, measure on the front from the crotch point, along the seam, to the hem.


For best results measure over your undergarments. Use a cloth measuring tape.

If your measurement falls between sizes, buy the larger size.

SHORT: Inseam Measurement is 29 - 30"

REGULAR: Inseam Measurement is 31 - 32"

TALL: Inseam Measurement is 33 - 34"

SLIM FIT: Mid-rise sits just below the waist. Fitted through the hip and thigh. Tough enough for work, feminine enough for the weekends.

ORIGINAL FIT: Mid-rise sits just below the waist. Easy fit through the hip and thigh. A classic look you can wear anywhere and everywhere.

RELAXED FIT: Mid-rise sits just below the waist. Relaxed through the hip and thigh. Our roomiest fit gives you plenty of room to move throughout the workday.
