Rated 2 out of 5 by illingr Nice material except liner
Pros: The shorts have great fabric. Its pretty durable. Some of the colors are unique. The length is just great for my height.
Cons: The reason for the three stars is the liner is really really tight, it rights up your legs every few minutes. I would not buy this if you have strong legs and hips, the pace breaker short was much better for me. I am pulling up the shorts every few minutes because the liner pulls the shorts down to give you a plumbers crack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lehter Liner too small
Same problem as previous post. Liner is a breif not boxer style and much to brief. Can not pull the waistband of the shorts to my normal position above hip bones as the liner is too restrictive

Rated 1 out of 5 by Agent007 A big mistake on these shorts...
I have at least a half dozen of the Pace Breakers and 3 or 4 pairs with the Lux liner. They have been my go to shorts for running, gym, outdoor activities.
This is a new version, they have drastically reduces the size of the liner to the point where it is restricting and much too small. Please bring back the old version or redesign these so they fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockchalk10 Favorite Lulu Shorts
I have an older pair of the lux PB which I wear constantly and was hesitant to buy another due to the new liner (some reviewers said it was too tight, almost to the point of painful). I'm glad I went ahead and ordered them. Yes, the liner is different and a little tighter, but I wouldn't go nearly as far as to say painful or even uncomfortable. The tempest blue color is great and a nice change up from all the black/navy other shorts that I have. Keep the colors coming!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bilson new version - 2 stars; old version - 5 stars
tl;dr - old version; awesome, new version; unwearable, but i don't have the heart to give just one star
6'1", 180 lbs, athletic build, normal leg size, 34/32 in pants fits comfortably, lulu size large
i have 3 pairs of the old luxtreme pace breaker (no brainer 5 star rating). two for around 1.5 years, got the other on ebay 2 weeks ago. workout 3-4 times a week and won't wear anything else.
my girlfriend bought me a new pair recently and i just ripped the tags off and threw them in my gym bag. turns out the liner has changed drastically and is now so tight around my thighs that it's borderline painful. not sure what facilitated the change, but i have since picked up an old pair off ebay but can't find any others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jkruns Liner is too tight
I had one of the luxtreme pacebreaker before, bought it some month back. The liner is very different this time, too tight and uncomfortable.
I buy these shorts like a staple since I go through quite a few, just grab and go. I dont want to try them on each time
Its deeply annoying to me that design changes are made without pointing them out. Why not pacebreaker 1.0 2.0 etc when something changes
Also Iphone 6 barely fits into the pocket, its out for nearly a year now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by casbonano decent product, could use some improvements
My main complaint with these shorts is the uppermost part of the elastic waistband. for whatever reason, I'm guessing the band inside is flat, and you can feel that it has rolled over and twisted. the outer part of the garment is now rolling over the elastic and its kind of a mess. not a huge deal, but irritating at times. other than that, its a great garment. i wish the cut was a little shorter, but thats just my preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrossfitEmptyNester Great Crossfit Shorts
I got these for my husband for Crossfit. He loves them. Our Box in Florida doesn't have AC. These are light weight and cool. He can run in them, do BoxJumps, Squats, Planks and they don't fall down during Handstand PushUps. He never buys gear for himself and wants a couple more pair even though he knows how much they cost. They must be really amazing for him to be willing to pay more than $15 for them. I highly recommend these for everyday WODs or 5Ks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Davey Great shorts, but major design flaw!!
I bought a pair of these a few months ago, mostly for running. They fit great and held everything in place well. They became my favorite shorts for long runs so I bought a second pair.
I found out this past weekend after doing a long run that the second pair I bought has a different liner than the first and that it has a seam going right up the middle in the front! Let's just say I can barely walk today from the insane amount of chafing down there (and yes I used body glide before the run).
This may be a great women's clothing store, but they still have a lot to figure out with designing men's clothes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by i7778 Loved and hated (good desgin low quality)
I want to say that I really loved these. I think they are classic design with great function. However, when I got mine I tried them on loved the fit then because I am a germ-a-phobe I washed them when I took them out of the washer I surprised to see that the liner had torn from the waist line. I was bummed out and called into see about a replacement. I was told on the phone that the rip didn't make the shorts unwearable and they couldn't give me a replacement or do anything for me, which i was surprised to hear. I thought maybe if i took them into the store they would see the problem and help me out. NOPE! They actually laughed at me and said I was cheap for trying to exchange them. I was really upset when the $80 dollar shorts i ordered ripped but even more upset to be told that I should just buy more. I know mens wear isn't what you are known for now but I'd hoped you'd treat your male customers better.
