I'm on the fence
I bought two pairs, one in black and the other in the heather grey.
I've washed the black one twice and it's already showing color fade, and the gray ones have been washed 3 times or so and threads are already coming loose.
I like the product and design, but the clothing doesn't seem to last very long. I'm unsure if I would buy them again.

Perfect fit--great for lounging or working out. Love the lack of liner.

way too hot
I purchased these on the recommendation of a Lululemon sales associate - I was asked (probably looking a little overwhelmed by all the choices) 'What activity are you shopping for?', to which I responded 'Yoga'. He pointed me to these shorts without any hesitation.
However, I wore these to a hot class yesterday - no shirt - and I found the shorts were way too heavy for such a class. I overheated extremely quickly. I have also had them hanging up for about 20 hours now and they are still not dry.
I will say that my low rating mainly reflects the service I got (i.e. the recommendation) in the Lululemon store. The shorts themselves are fine and comfortable, but for yoga they are too bulky, too heavy, and too hot - and they do not, by any stretch, wick moisture away, but rather hold onto it like a towel. I also don't feel like they are the most aesthetically pleasing shorts due to fit, but that may be a result of my body type.

Overall I love these shorts- extremely comfortable- but I feel like they are better suited for casual wear. During my most intense high intensity workouts, the fabric does not wick away sweat- so the shorts stay quite sweaty. If you are training on a normal day and won't include high intensity cardio work, then you should be fine with these in the gym!
To the designers- the fly and the drawstring holes do not align on my shorts- it seems as if the holes are off-centered. It didn't ruin the product, but I found it odd.

a man's yoga short
I use these shorts regularly for yoga practice. The pockets are fairly shallow allowing me not to notice them while practicing. They are super comfortable, great for inversions and flowing with my body movements. Finally a yoga pant that I feel comfortable wearing. Also, these shorts keep me dry. I like that there is not a liner. Smalls fit me great other than being a bit too long. I will be getting these hemmed the next time I drop into a lulu.

Great shorts for lounging around!
Picked these up today at my local LLL. I plan on wearing these shorts for lounging around the house or when I go out on a walk to grab coffee. I personally will not wear them during CrossFit because they are not as light and won't breathe as well as my Pace Breakers or Surge shorts.
You should also note that the inseam on these feel more like an 8''. They feel about an inch shorter than the Pace Breakers. Which for me is great because I always end up having my Pace Breakers hemmed 1 inch anyway.
