moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric is breathable and cottony soft - we love this high-performance fabric for its serious stretch and recovery
lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
why we made this
It doesn't matter how good we are at Kung Fu, it's impossible to do a really good high kick in a pair of jeans. We developed these pants because we wanted to be able to move freely through our yoga practice.
fabric + features
tie the stretch drawcord in the waistband for a proper fit
athletic fit for a muscular posterior (that's hockey butt in layman's terms)
two hip pockets and two rear pockets for your cards and keys
chafe-resistant flat seams won't rub you the wrong way
These pants used to be great!
I bought some kung fu pants 4 years ago. No joke, 4 years and they are still in great shape, but I wanted something a little fresh for going to the studio, and decided to rebuy some kung fu pants.
The material is no longer luon, or at least what used to be known as luon, and thee pockets are on the interior and made from what feels like fishnet.
The pockets are horribly abrasive on the skin of your thighs and they bunch up in weird ways while you are doing yoga, squats, deadlifts, running or walking.
I miss the exterior pocket of the traditional kungfu pant, and I would like to see some of the quality I used to be able to expect as a standard from this brand.
I would not recommend these pants for men who are interested in yoga, even if you wax your legs (which you shouldn't have to do) these pockets hurt your skin, and they really hurt!

Amazingly comfy but falling apart
I bough these pants for my boyfriend 2 months ago and a seem has come undone aready. He raves about how comfy they are but for the price they should hold up for longer than 2 months.

I was very skeptical about the pants initially, but after I bought them, I absolutely love them.
I'm 5'11" 185lbs. and the medium fits perfectly. I have worn them for multiple WODs and they are, by far, the most "mobility friendly" pants I have ever worn. No issues with lifting, running, jumping or anything else you run into in the gym.
They aren't super thick so you don't sweat out of them when working out, but they are great at cutting through the wind and keeping you warm in cold weather.
Easily the best pair of gym/athletic pants I've ever owned.

My husband has these in black, soot, and blue. They are his favorite weekend pants, and he is always raving about how comfortable they are!

Pants tend to pill pretty quickly after 4 washes
Pants are incredibly comfortable except they start to pill after 4 washes. This happened after washing with other Lululemon products and hanging to dry. For $100 these pants should not pill at all.

Converted my BF
For an anniversary present, I got my boyfriend a pair of Nike sweatpants. For christmas, I got him the Kung fu pants. I haven't seen the Nikes since. Now he wants them in every color... ;)
The only thing he'll complain about is the waist band-- they're not stretchy like the rest of the pant.

The pants are comfortable but nothing special. Seems durable, but there is a major design flaw: the pockets. Phone, coins etc will fall out of the pocket making the pants useless in the gym for instance. Same happens when sitting down - phone will slide out and can easily be lost. I find this to be the case of several of Lululemon's pants. Some have a dedicated phone pocket - wish they all had.

My boyfriend loves these pants and has them in every color! His only complaint is that he wishes there were larger variety of colors, maybe green for example!!

Fantastic all around pants
I have another pair of similar material pants from Lulu, I'm not sure of the name. These are much more roomy in the legs and the bottom fit nicely around my gym shoes. Great for working out or if you're just running errands. I'm a 32'' waist and a small fit okay, medium would have been too baggy. If you're looking for a gift for a guy, these pants are a safe bet.
