Rated 4 out of 5 by bring these back! sadly, the drawstring on my pair detached from these shorts and can't be sewn back in... and when i went in to have them replaced i found out that the Hardcore short is no longer available. ...which is really unfortunate. lightweight shorts, excellent pockets (two at the front for keys/cash/whatever, and one at the small of the back for yr phone) and a good length for those of us who don't want to go with a 5" inseam, these were perfect shorts. i'd be quite happy if you folks brought these back - or at least this set of features. the pocket at the small of the back is vital; once my phone was in it i wouldn't even notice i was carrying it with me until it was time to hit Stop on RunKeeper. when i checked the store and made my return, i was disappointed that all the shorts in this season's line have the pockets on the sides; side pockets won't keep a phone secure and would end up being a distraction from it constantly bouncing off one thigh on every other pace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shorts Ever! Love the length, waistband and lack of liner in these shorts! They are perfect. Please make more colors!! April 8, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great fabric but poor quality Bought these for my fiancé to turn him on to lululemon. Actually got about four pairs of shorts for him. He loves them and now this is all he wears for crossfit workouts. The downside is that because the fabric is so thin, it seems to rip and shred rather quickly. I noticed holes in the shorts after washing them yesterday. The fiancé said he noticed them after the first wash which is a bummer because we are so careful in how we wash and take care of our workout gear. After all, they aren't cheap! November 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great material, poor quality I bought a pair of these shorts for my boyfriend for running after falling in love with the Swift fabric (I own the Bring Back the Track jacket and the Rollin' with my omies pants). This fabric is amazingly light and soft, and he loved them up until the first wash. The short's string came right out. The string is sewn onto the side of the pants and does not, in fact, run the whole length of the waist. With no way to fix the string back onto the shorts, they are sadly just sitting in the closet. It's quite disappointing to have that happen after just one wash and they are fairly expensive shorts as well. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hardcore Short = Perfection I currently own 2 pairs of these shorts. They hold up great on my runs and cross fit workouts. The light weight no liner design is excellent. I hope Lululemon continues to make shorts as versatile and comfortable as this. August 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by These Shorts are great. My only complaint is that I like them Lined. Other than that; its great for the gym and lounging. August 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shorts These shorts are awesome, perfect length if you like them a little shorter. I'm 6'2 and wear a large and they fall right above the knee. Only problem I've found is that they are not overly durable. I have two pairs, I've worn each once, and one pair already has a hole in them. Has anyone else found this? August 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice & Light Got these for my boyfriend and he loves them! He likes how nice and light they are, and that there is no liner in them. He was a bit skeptical about not having pockets, as he's a type 1 diabetic with an insulin pump, but it turns out the zippered compartment in the back works perfectly and is even better than pockets. He uses them mostly for just lounging around or going for walks so not sure how they hold up in a gym setting. July 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too thin material for guys.... I've tried for ages to get my hubby into lululemon, finally I convinced him to try some things with me instead of sitting in the store. The fabric is super lightweight, but perhaps too thin because they are too sheer and are a little revealing for guys. To clarify, they are not "see thru", so perhaps the word sheer is not the right word, but nonetheless they should be more thicker, particularly in the front groin area for guys so guys would feel more comfortable. He liked the fit, quality and price overall... Just letting you know. June 6, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Poor Stitchings I've recently bought two pairs (black and navy). These shorts are incredibly light and provide great breathability. However, after third wash, I've noticed that the stitchings (side seam) on the black pair were slightly undone. I mainly wear these for cardio sessions so I believe nothing would've scraped against the shorts. May 21, 2014
