No Boxer Boxer
bring back the game on!
I have at least 15 pairs of the Game On Boxers and have recommended them to countless people. Needless to say I find that these aren't even close. they're not nearly as comfortable. so disappointed in this product.

So much worst than the Game On
Just tried a pair of these. They are awful. They are too short and ride up immediately when running, walking, or just sitting around. I've had better $5 underwear from H&M.
The Game On was a fantastic product. That these have less coverage and support at the same price smells like an effort to make more money from the customer.
Bring back the Game On.

Excited for the new colours, but no Game On
Wanted to give these new boxers a try since the Game On boxer is no longer available. Went to the store and loved all the new colour options but as a tall guy the fit is way to short as said by many other guests. Please bring back the Game On boxers. Sad to say I won't be buying anymore until the style is re-worked or the Game On is brought back.

Wanted to love them
I, like many others reviewing this product, am a huge fan of the Game On boxers. I think I probably own 15 pairs, they're the only boxers I own. When I saw the No Boxer Boxers I wanted to give them a try, but I'm afraid I have to echo what others were saying. The new cup design seems good (albeit not a major leap, I'd say I'm pretty indifferent between this design and the Game On design), but they're simply too short. They chafe and ride up, and I've never had that problem with the Game On.
If these were longer I'd be a fan, as it is I think I'm going to have to hold off buying any more Lululemon boxers until there is another version that is the same length as the Game On.

First off, let me say this...I'm a HUGE Lulu fan. I've got so much of LuLu stuff I think I might have a LuLu problem. That said, I bought my first pair of the No Boxer Boxers late last week. I've been wanting to try out the boxers for a while, but didn't need any new pairs. Well, I broke down and bought pair. Epic fail. Worst LLL product I've purchased yet. Just like LOYALLULU said, they stop right at the widest part of your thigh and ride up immediately. After one long travel day of wearing them, I'm chaffed in my inner thigh area. Not good! I won't be buying another pair of these boxers. I'll wait until the next, new version comes out. If these weren't "final sale", I'd take them back. Oh well...you live and learn. It shouldn't be too long before the new style comes out.

don't like this replacement for the Game On
I have been buying the Game Ons for a while and love them, but my wife recently bought these new ones (which are apparently the replacement for the Game Ons).
Lulu needs to rethink this - the length on these is all wrong - hits right at the widest part of your thigh, and so they ride up almost immediately. It's also a weird feeling. The Game Ons were the right length for almost any activity. Now there's too much of your leg exposed for chafing when sweating.
Not sure why Lulu is getting rid of the Game Ons, but you've lost at least one underwear customer...and judging by how quickly the Game Ons are disappearing right now off of shelves (as I'm trying to stock up!), my guess is that many people have tried these new ones, and feel the same why I do.
Keep these for some of your clients, of course, but don't get rid of the Game Ons with their longer length.

I want to love these, but...
I am new to Lululemon, and have loved the products I've bought so far (Core Hoodie, Kung Fu Cotton Pant, seersucker shorts, etc.). I just got the No Boxer Boxer for my birthday, and was excited to try them out on the trail the other day. Unfortunately, I have to echo what other reviewers have said - hot spots/chafing on the inner thighs. At first I thought the chafing was a scream for help that I needed to lose some inner thigh weight, or change my gait - but then I saw the reviews and realized I was not alone in my struggle.
I haven't had the same issues with other boxer briefs the same length (Exofficio Give-and-Go Sport Mesh Boxer Brief is a better option), and can only liken it to excess material folded up and sewn at the inner seam. The No Boxer Boxer is made of great material, has a comfortable waistband, and a good mix of color choices. Unfortunately, I won't be running or walking long distances in these again :(

Bought these to avoid chafing, MORE CHAFING!
After experiencing some chafing resulting from track workouts in traditional cotton underwear I decided to step my game up and get these. The fabric fits well and is comfortable under non-athletic use. But after a track workout of 400 repeats I found the chafing to be much worse than before and concentrated in a pretty terrible "nether region." Not sure if the seams are positioned wrong, or the underwear simply shifts during sprinting, but definitely not using them again for athletic purposes. Definitely disappointed in the results as I am perfectly happy to pay a premium for a product that works well under tough conditions. These did not.

Chafing issue explained?
I bought these yesterday and wore first time today and rubbed both sides of inside leg to frustrating irritation. After examining seam placement and comparing them to my game on BBs I think I've figured the problem out - the shorter inseam causes cuff part where the seams meet in the T (in front inner thigh area) to bunch and rub at the thicker part of the inner thigh which causes the chafing. The game ons with the longer inseam have these seams meet at a lower point in the thigh where this is less friction, hence no chafing. All I can say is it appears to be a bit of a design problem ? Doesn't really work for people with big quads

Almost the greatest ever
These are wonderful boxer briefs, but fall short of being the undisputed world champions.
The Good: flat, smooth seams. Outstanding comfort, and next to skin feel. They do not bunch or ride up. Ever. Lightweight and moisture wicking.
The bad: no odor management.
If they had silverscent, they would be the greatest of all time.
