Mission Pant II
Best Work Pants or Pants for warm/hot weather
I wear these to work and on the weekends, everywhere...best pants i've ever owned. Fitment is great, complimentary alteration is awesome. The turnaround time was quick!
east coast and west coast summer approved! no issues after washing/hang dry. saving up to own all colors!
I say create one or two with more darker earth tones...

The only pants I wear now
Please make more colors! A dark brown would be a nice addition to the line.
These are my favorite pants; I can bike to and from work in them, feel comfortable all day long, and look professional.

Best Pants OUT
These pants are the best pants I have had in a long time. From the pockets to the fit, everything is great. I like the fact you can wear them with a t shirt or even throw a sport coat on with them. Also, very nice to wear on the golf course. Over all, the best pants out there and I will be buying them in every color.

Anyone else experienced material defects?
I like these pants - i have the black and the brown (tan). The black is great, however in the tan i have developed some weird piling/stretching defect at the front - i have not even washed this pair. They are great for cycling and in the office, however, given the location of the pilling, im not sure if i can wear them anymore. hoping someone will respond with a suggestion?

All of your men's pants and shorts are slowly getting there, they are great but with some more ROOM in the crotch they would be super. It seems these have a deeper inseam, no pinch anymore, but could still use about 1/4, maybe even an 1/8th of an inch more of room across the front and in the inseam. Your first version, great pants, were horrible in the crotch and i had to completely undo my pants to use the restroom. These have some more room, same with Kahuna shorts it seems too, but PLEASE, PLEASE, just a tiny bit more.
I am ok with the taper, wasn't sure at first but it has gown on me.
Also, I begged for khaki 2 years ago in your pants, thank you!

HATE the slim fit. This seems to be the only "work pant" currently available from lulu. The previous generations fit me much better. Athletic butt and legs are difficult to cram in and I hate the tight ankle/hipster style. Please bring back the relaxed fit work pants. Could stand as a separate product from this one.

A pant for all seasons
Just took two pairs of these pants on nine plane trips in three weeks. Wore them on 14 hour legs of the trip; packed them too. They pack thin and stand up well. Comfortable in the cramped seats. Today I bike commuted with them; now heading into a client meeting with the same trouser on. The pants do what the web site says. Well done, Lululemon.

Definitely not for athletic builds
Tried these on in the store, definitely does not suit an athletic build so put them back on the shelf.
I have a 32 waist - that was perfect. However, the thighs and calves were too tight. Its like they are meant for hipsters with stick-legs, not an athletic build with any muscle on your legs at all. Will have to wait until you design some pants with a looser fit before I buy.

If you like V1, you'll love V2. Near perfect.
Mission Pants V1 were ok, better than anything else to travel in as they were 100% versatile. From the car to the plane to dinner, to broadway or bike along the beach, then go again tomorrow. They were good. I have 3 pair. The V2 pants are a huge improvement from V1. Near perfect. Fabric isn't so stiff. They're still trim but not over slim. LuLu needs to change 1 thing. The back pockets need a button or some sort of closer or flap. Pockets are a bit baggy inviting a pick pocket or an ill timed slip out of your wallet. if this happens while traveling, that's a heck of a bad day. The internal zip back pocket is a good idea, but difficult to wiggle a wallet in and out of quickly. Try them on. Some lulu sizes are a bit quirky.

shhhhhh.... My office dress code is business casual. I've been wearing these pants for a week now, and no one has yet to find out about my stretchy & comfy secret. Two things about these pants that might give the secret away:
1. I am managing the lotus pose at my desk - something that could never happen with my regular work pants, my posture is definitely improving and my back feels more comfortable.
2. the shiny lululemon logo at the back - folks would probably need to look hard under some bright lights.
Probably the most versatile pair of pants I've ever owned: golf course, commute, work. The common denominator is this pair. Swap in/out belts, socks and shoes and you get completely new looks. Bravo!! Can't wait to see what comes out next!
