No Boxer Boxer
I wish I came here to see other reviews of these before buying them, because I am having the exact same issue. I loved the Game On boxers. I went into a store to grab a couple new pairs and I was assured by the sales staff that these were exactly the same, just with slightly shorter legs. If I wore the Game On boxers, I would be totally satisfied with these.
Well I hate them, they ride up and bunch up in the crotch. Now I never wear them. Unfortunately you can't try on or return this product, total waste of money. What was wrong with Game On's? Everyone who I know that wears them says they love them. Why did they need to change??

Won't be buying another pair
A complete disappointment and extremely uncomforable. I was a huge fan of the Game on Boxer and had at least 20+ pairs. They were hands down the most comfrotable underwear on the market and I would recommend to anyone that would listen. With the No Boxer I would do the opposite and tell people to stay as far away from them as possible.
I decided to pick up a pair of the No Boxer since they're the new thing and regret that I actually bought two pairs. The reason I was a huge fan of the Game On's was that they didn't ride up (probably because of the length) and the lack of a "pouch". The new design rides up and feels bunchy between the legs with all the extra fabric for the pouch, the No Boxer is just like every other boxer out there now.
The Game On's were the only reason I stepped into Lululemon, and without the Game On's I won't be back.

no boxer boxer fiasco
I have been buying the Game on Boxers for many years for both my sons. They love the Game on Boxers and were very upset to find out that you will not be selling them any longer. I have been trying to find some Game on Boxers in size Large, but I cannot find any. I purchased each of my sons a pair of the new No Boxer Boxers and I am upset that they both do not like them ... mainly because of the length of the leg (too short), and because they are tight on the thigh. My boys want the Game on Boxers to come back as soon as possible.

Game On's were the "No Boxer Boxer"!!!
Honestly how could you replace the Game On Boxer, let alone change them so dramatically (I owned 20+ pairs)?!?!?! The Game On Boxers were of cult status, every dude I know wears them and only them... Game On's are why I started shopping at Lululemon to begin with... Your Yoga Pants brought Women in for the first time and your Game On Boxers brought Men in.
The worst thing about the No Boxer Boxer is that the changes you made make them similar to almost every other high end Boxer Brief currently sold on the market. I loved the Game On's because they were longer than your standard Boxer Brief in the legs and didn't have a defined "shaped pouch". I wore a Large in the Game On's, but after taking one glance at the No Boxer knew I had to go up a size because of how short they have become. Regardless of that change helping slightly from other guy's comments, still had chafing and they road up in the leg, not to mention the whole "Shaped Pouch" fiasco. This new style comes nowhere close to Game On's comfort and I just don't see myself being as loyal to these new ones as they are so similar to every other mediocre Boxer on the Market. Please bring back Game On's!!!

Not as good as "Game On" boxer briefs
I was really disappointed when I heard that Lululemon was discontinuing their "Game On" boxer briefs. I almost exclusively wear them. When I saw these "No Boxers" in store, I was intrigued by their look so I bought a pair knowing that the "Game On" wasn't coming back.
"No Boxer" are comfy but just not as comfy as the "Game On". The pouch at the front is a nice addition and keeps things more together but overall these don't match up. These are shorter boxers and for me, I'm tall (6'3"), so those extra inches on the "Game On" pair really fit me perfectly. These feel tighter around the thighs too. I likely won't buy another pair.
BRING BACK GAME ON PLEASE!

Big disappointment. What happened to the Game On?
I was a big fan of the Game On boxers (100% of my boxers were Game On until I bought a pair of these), recommending them to all my friends and trying to convince them that they were completely worth the price. When I was told that they were discontinuing the Game On boxers I was deeply disappointed but decided to give the No Boxer Boxers a try. Big mistake, and unfortunately a final sale made these a complete waste of money. After a day of wearing them I found that I was constantly having to pull them down as they were riding up often and they were completely uncomfortable. Lululemon went from making my favourite boxers ever to the worst ones I have ever worn. Why would Lululemon discontinue boxers that almost every guy loves in favour of boxers that create such great discomfort?

Don't expect these to fit/feel like the 'Game On' boxers they supposedly replaced. The fabric is the same, but the length is shorter and the leg circumference is noticeably smaller. If you have "sprinter's legs," these will be tight on your thighs. It's possible that going up a size might alleviate most of the problem, but I'm not going to spend another $24 to find out. I'm really glad I only bought one pair of these.
Lesson learned. I understand the reasoning behind Lulu's no-return policy for underwear; you can't re-sell used underwear. But given the cost of their underwear (and the apparent profit margin) I would think they could allow people a store credit equal to the purchase price of one pair.

I miss the game on boxer brief
Can someone explain to me why you discontinued the boxers everyone loved and replaced them with boxers that are either too long or too short for daily wear?
These ride up something fierce. Such a disappointment.
FYI, guys like boxers with 7.5" inseams. It really is the right length for boxers. Please rethink this.

I Like Them
When I found the Game On Boxer, I pretty much restocked my entire underwear drawer. Then the No Boxer came out and I like them even more. Here's why:
- I prefer the shorter inseam. I wear 7" Surge Shorts during my runs and I prefer my underwear to have a shorter inseam than my running shorts.
- They have a pouch, something sorely missing in the Game on Boxer.
- I find the design comfortable in the gym, office, around the house, and out on the town.

BRING BACK THE GAME ON!
If you are looking for something to supplement your game on boxer brief arsenal do NOT buy these as you will be hugely disappointed. I have a stack of game on and was looking to add to the stack only to find out I cant get them anymore. I purchased these as they seemed to be the closest to the game on style and make but after wearing them they are just apples and oranges. I crossfit and love to wear the game on boxer but when it comes to the No Boxer Boxer I just need to echo all the other negative reviews for all the same reasons. Disaster!
Other items that Lululemon has discontinued (or changed for the worse) I have typically been able to find a sufficient substitute but there is no substitute for the game on!
Hey Lululemon bring back the game on boxer brief!
