My husband has 3 pairs of these, and is a fan. The material is nice, and they seem well made. They tend to run a bit small.

Sizing is very off
Don't get me wrong. I love Lululemon, at least before. Two years ago, I started buying lulu pants for work since I think the material is durable and the look is formal. I used to get size 30, and it fits real well. When the slim version of the pants came out, I bought it 32 since the "educator" was telling me it's a slim cut and I should buy one size up. I bought 32 and it's a good fit.
Fast forward to 2014. I bought a short for 32, and man it was tight. Yes I gained couple pounds but it's still doesn't make any sense. I did my own measurement and 32 short is like 29 something. I eventually bought another short size 34, and it now fits. But the problem is with the 34 waist, the cutting is all odd and it's not a slim short as it intended to be. I did another measurement and its like 30 and something. More than 3 inches off measurement? Are you kidding me? Canadians have their system metric system? It just puzzles me since this is not labeled as a S, M, or L, since these can be very creative. But a 34 should be at least 33 to 34, right?
I love the brand since day one and I even own the stocks, and now I understand why I am a dumb shopper and an investor:(

By far my favorite shorts I own
I really dig these shorts. I haven't noticed the sizing inconsistencies others have mentioned; I normally wear a 34 but wear all my lulu in a 36 including these shorts. They're extremely comfortable look like new wash after wash, and fit great. I like that these have a 23" leg opening compared to the 25.5" leg opening on the Kahuna shorts. The back pockets also look great with the flap out or in for two slighty different styles. Hope they come out with more colors for spring soon.

Great shorts but slim
I'm 6'4", athletic build and they do run very slim. I bought the tan color but had to return them due to being too endowed and it being very visible down my leg. I exchanged for the back ones and they are great!

Run wayyYY small
My husband is a 33 34 being generous. I ordered the 34 and he can barely do up. I sized them against his other lulu 34 shorts and we almost thought they were womens.
Too much of a guessing game on which size would actually fit. I know these were final sale but I called and got a refund. They have to be fair with the sizing if your buying online.

so close but the front pockets a problem
When they called these shorts, the "Daily Shorts", LuLu meant it. They're great!?until you wear them every day (I have 6 pair). The front pockets aren't quite deep enough. Stuff falls out when you sit down and you won't notice it, leaving behind your change, boarding pass, travel docs and pocket knife. This happened in a rental car. In a hotel. On a plane... Bad news. I'm still wearing the shorts here in FLA. Hoping LuLu improves V2. Funny, they worked hard on back pocket security with the flap. (Missed back pocket security on the Mission pants V2..those pants are perfect except for the back pockets. No flap. Easy for pick pockets. I just learned the hard way in Geneva!)

Fit small, stain!
I want to love these shorts and wear them all of the time, either golfing or just casually but it doesn't matter where I wear them, they stain within the first 5 minutes of wearing them. I don't even have to leave my room and there will be marks on them I don't get it! I follow the washing directions, but the directions fail to mention to carry a tide stick in your pocket at all times. It sucks to pay so much money for basic shorts that you cant even wear without hammering the stain remover to after washing and before wearing every time. As for the fit they fit small, so try them on and then you cant complain about that.

These are the best fitting shorts that I have ever owned. I am a slim triathlete and crossfitter without huge quads and I love that the legs in these shorts are not baggy with extra fabric, but fit close to the body. My wife also loves how these shorts look.
I also like that the fabric is stretchy.
Only negative is that this fabric looks like polyester (coach shorts from the 70s!), but you have to really look carefully and closely to be critical.
Sizing note: these run small: I typically wear 31 waist pants, but I purchased 34" in these shorts so they are worth trying on before purchasing.

Bought 3 different pair of these shorts in size 36, and each fit like a 32-34. Disappointing, especially when every other Lululemon short I own is size 36.
