Surge Short 5"
Best I've Ever Had
I feel at home in these shorts. They don't get in my way, there's plenty of ventilation down there, and the quality of the fabric is unmatched.
The liner is a dream. It doesn't constrict and is very accommodating.
I've already recommended these shorts to my friends-- and especially to those serious about running. No chafing, no problem. You get the sensation of running naked with the perfect amount of support.
My only caveat is perhaps a back pocket for my wallet when I run because there's not a lot of room for anything more than a smart phone in the front pocket.

Good but could be better
Good length and weight shorts, almost perfect but they made some questionable choices:
1) No dedicated key pocket. I bring keys every time I run. I have an older pair of Lululemon running shorts that have a perfect zippered pocket in center of back waistband. Keys sit right there and don't jangle around. Perfect. Much more functional than the shirt loops if I had to give those up.
I use the gel pockets for keys but harder to access and generally less convenient than zippered rear pocket.
2) The liners are overly snug and ride up into your crotch. Shorts are sized properly but the liners are annoying.
3) The fake fly. Why?

Need more colors
I love the surge shorts, both the 5' and 7' styles, but lately have been disappointed in the lack of colors available, as well as limited availability of XXL sizes. IF they are available, they seem to sell out within minutes of being released online, or in store. I have spoken to numerous employees at the stores who say they are not even receiving any of the fun, bright newer colors in the XXL. I would love to see some more neon, pastel, and for sure WHITE, would be cool. There are enough of the dark colors in my opinion available, please Lululemon, make more XXL Surge Shorts in fun, vibrant colors. I am a loyal Lululemon customer, owning about 20 of the surge shorts and 22 of the Metal Vent Tech shirts

Need more colors
I bought the black camouflage 5" surge in 2014. They are great shorts! I'm looking to buy another pair but am disappointed in the color availability. I was hoping Lululemon would make some brighter colors like orange or yellow for my dawn & dusk runs for better visibility on the road. Dark colors aren't always the safest for us runners, Lululemon.

sky's out, thighs out!
yup! this is by far the best running shorts i've ever owned from lulu. i got the linerless ones which i realized later to be only available in the flagship stores. i love the length of this shorts for serious long sesh of running. the side pocket is so perfect for an ipod nano (which i have). those straps at the back was a good idea too coz when it gets really hot, i just take my shirt off and hang it in them straps. this short are like vacuum for sweat though. all you out there who are proud of your thighs, this is got to be your short, brah!
the only wish i've had for these shorts are them to be around for a while.

The 5" Surge is a great short - my favorite running short. Why can't you have a cool, plain gray-colored short?! I've been waiting two years for another gray-colored 5" Surge short - at this point I'm going to have to find another brand. Black is the only color I would buy in this year's line up, but I already have enough of that color. Please come out with a gray-colored 5" like this year's 7" Surge - EXCEPT don't put the stupid red zipper on it!

More sizes, PLEASE!
The Surge Short 5" are my absolute favorite. I love my shorts small for when I run, workout, or do any type of physical activity. I've been wanting these shorts ever since they came out and they have not had many sizes available for months. Please stock up on smalls, i'm in desperate need of these.

Looks great but no Mediums?
These shorts look perfect for my running and must be good because there are no size mediums in any colors! When will they be restocked?

These shorts work for everything-dance, cross country, even volleyball. Please bring in more printed colors, and smalls. The four lululemons near me all ran out of small, and they only had them in black.
This is literally the only short that I've ever fallen in love with here, and it sucks that you guys don't have more.
Also, please make the media pocket a little bigger, but that's not a really big issue.

Best Running Shorts. Ever. Game Over.
I've been running for more than a decade and have ran in every brand and style that exists (even those dedicated to just running) and they have no chance against this short. I run ultras, marathons, 13.1, etc... and the quality is off the charts, no issue whatsoever, never. Only thing though, PLEASE, make more size SMALL available. It's sold out from over a month online and when they hit the stores they are gone really fast.
