No Boxer Boxer
I have been using the game on boxers for a number of years now. I have larger thighs and struggled with standard boxer-briefs breaking around the legs, or riding up into that ever uncomfortable place they go. When I found the game on boxers they were a blessing. The thighs held their place and kept cool during the many different activities that have found their ways into my life. I even brought my 16 pairs with me to Japan when I moved here from Canada last year.
All good things do wear down and constant use has left several pairs with some holes. When my siblings were coming to visit they picked up 2 pairs of the no boxer boxer. The shorter length is quite awful. The underwear just isn't able to hold its position and rides up constantly. While the new design is good in theory, trying to reduce chaffing, the fact they ride up caused some serious problems when I went walking around town with my siblings.
I'm now left with 2 pairs of underwear that are literally unwearable. I'm also left with having to find a replacement brand for underwear. This leaves me very disappointed because I thought I had found a brand I would use forever. Even worse it leaves my siblings disappointed that their gift is more of a problem than a help.
I sincerely hope that the company reviews and reverses the decision to discontinue the game on shorts. These no boxer boxers may have had good intentions with their design; but good intentions can't make up for the fact that it is an inferior product.

OK ...still not as good as "the original"
So I, like everyone else apparently, was extremely disappointed when the "game on" boxers were removed. However, lets all not forget that even that model seemed to have some SERIOUS FABRIC ISSUES in the latter part of it's lifespan, with boxers basically disintegrating within a couple months! I was also a bit wary of the "no boxer boxer" coming in as a replacement.
THE GOOD: fabric seems better, breathes a bit better than the (last batches) of the game on. "the pouch" is a good addition IMO, pretty comfortable. New seams/seaming is solid so far.
THE BAD: yes, they are a "hair" shorter in the thigh and seemingly a little more "snug" around the legs.
THE UGLY: STILL NEED MORE IN "THE SEAT" ... I think lulu assumes everyone shopping here is a yoga and/or running fanatic, and has no azz whatsoevver -- WRONG. They tend to not have enough for the junk in the trunk if you've got any, leading to plumbers crack and riding up a bit out back ....
Overall, they have been "ok" ....nowhere near the product that the original game on was though. 3 of 5 stars -- I'm sure you can find a decent comparative pair for less than $24. I have acquired 8 pair so far, continually seeking quality control.
I do see they are releasing a "longer" version in November, which is good .... so I URGE YOU LULULEMON, add a little more room in the rear too!!!!

Hate Hate Hate!!!
Let me preface this by say I NEVER right reviews. Nothing on Amazon or any other major retailer. With that in mind you now understand how loyal I was to the Game On Boxer. This was a perfect product. And Lululemon has does us ALL a tremendous disservice with discontinuing the Game On Boxer and transitioned to the No Boxer Boxer. I bought two of the No Boxer Boxer because I was told by the salesperson that they were identical to the Game On Boxers. This is by FAR NOT THE CASE. The No Boxer Boxer fit is way too tight and because they are shorter they ride up ALL FREAKING day. PLEASE PLEASE Lululemon own up that you made a mistake with this product and BRING BACK THE GAME ON BOXER. I will not buy anything from your store until you correct this travesty!!!

The game on boxer was literally a game changer for me. I got rid of all my other under wear while slowly accumulating a superior lulu counterpart. I went into my local store to purchase some more when they told me the product was discontinued and being replaced. Being optimistic I purchased a pair of the no boxers and I hate them! I usually don't write reviews but this loss of product really annoyed me and I wanted to draw more attention to the issue with hopes lulu would do something about this. The game on was perfect and like they say "if it ain't broke don't fix it." Come on guys don't let this many people down. I love all of the products and quality of material but this is really disappointing to me.

horrible underwear replacement
These just suck!!! And why would LULULEMON get rid of the game on boxer brief ...they were so much better...this company has gone so far down hill...dont replace something with a totally different product ...its shorter, tighter and not as comfortable....get back the game on boxer brief and educate your employees in your stores they seem to only know about women's clothes....its horrible ...a giant step in the wrong direction with these but its worse when you DISCONTINUE game on boxer brief!!!!

I was a huge fan of game on boxers. They were a perfect fit and length. I threw away all of my other boxers and even got my friends hooked on those boxers as well. The "no boxer boxer" is TERRIBLE. Very tight around the thighs. if you sit down they give the "plumber" look. I am so disappointed in LULU. Please bring the game on boxer back.

Okay, not great.
These are alright. I have a few pairs of the Game On Boxer and those are definitely better. The No Boxer rides up most of the time, but sometimes doesn't depending on the pants I'm wearing. They might be okay if I had smaller thighs - but I don't so that's just speculation.
Again, these aren't amazing, but they're not awful either. Hopefully they'll bring back the Game On Boxers.

Pulling underwear down all day
These are really comfortable......If you were doing a sleep study and had to lay flat on your back all day, or if you did not have to bend at the hips.
These are too short and ride straight up as soon and you have to squat. basically have to pull underwear down every 30 min or so.
Lululemon, please make a longer version of these. the "pocket" is nice and feels good. Can't you just add the pocket to the game on boxers? that would be amazing. Until then I will not be purchasing and don't recommend anybody buying these.

Not as bad as many are saying
I am new to Lulu so my only option is the No Boxer Boxer. I read all the negative reviews and decided not to spend $24 on a single pair of chonies that were receiving so many bad reviews. So the other day I went into my local store and found a few pairs of the Game Ons that everyone raves about in the clearance section. To compare, I also bought a few No Boxers. I have worn them both a few times and yes, I like the Game Ons better. The No Boxers are not that bad though. I recently wore them on a day where I was on my feet walking for about 8 hours and they never rode up on me at all. I'm not going to discredit what many other reviewers are complaining about but my experience has been different. Can't give them a 5 because I do like the Game Ons better.

Just Say No No
Like many of the reviews, I'm a huge fan of the Game Ons and have been wearing Lulu underwear since 2009. My wife and I shop at Lulu all the time and it's just about all we wear. While in store, I was hesitant of these boxers because of all the reviews. However, being R&D, my store gave me a pair which was awesome. The not so awesome part are the boxers. They are terrible. They are too short and like everyone else says, ride up. I have worn them twice and the last time I did, I spent most of the day going commando. Thankfully, they were free. I still have a few Game Ons left in the drawer but they are starting to wear out. I have added the Under Amour mesh and Exofficio boxers briefs to the mix. Guys should check these out.
