Surge Short 5"

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. March 3, 2015
Best Running Shorts! I use these shorts pretty much for everything: running, pilates, indoor cycling, and the gym. As a shorter guy, the 5" inseam is the perfect length, as anything longer usually swallows me up. I just ask to PLEASE have more smalls available in the printed versions. ESPECIALLY in the lotus camo print!! Thank you!! February 14, 2015
No BS Short I am a Ultra distance runner and Triathlete, who puts out water no matter the distance of the run. I have large thick quads as well and have been burned in the past with other brands of gear due to fit and material. I am 100% pleased with this material inside and out! No hot spots, no seam issues, no water retention issues either. And I wash with whatever soap I have at the time in the shower and they dry oder free in a couple of hours. I will order more just to have at multiple run locations in reserve! Thanks for a Superior product. November 20, 2014
Great for running!! This shorts are perfect!! The overall length and inseam work for running and yoga!! And who ever thought of putting a shirt strap on shorts is a genius!! August 22, 2014
Great for Table Tennis I bought it for Table Tennis as it allows unrestricted movement. Great pocket with zipper. Great for Bikram Yoga too. I just hope they make Golf shorts next. I have a few tips! August 14, 2014
Literally amazing! I've used the surge shorts in marathons, mud runs, cross fit, and just lounging. They look great and I always get compliments on them. I took them to Turks and Caicos so I could go for a run, hop in the ocean for a quick swim and they dry out so fast. Took them on a vacation to New York and you still feel stylish while walking around all day. July 31, 2014
Nice Looking shorts, bad functionally Other Lulu shorts I have owned are some of the best, these are subpar for what is supposed to be a premium product. The pocket is basically useless and they chafed which I never get from other shorts I own. They look great but that is about it. June 1, 2014
Doesn't get much better I've long been on the search for great running shorts and these fit the bill! I really like the length of the short, the light feel of the fabric, the light weight of the shorts (much lighter and better than last year's precise shorts), and the fit of the liner. It holds everything in place without being constrictive or uncomfortable. In fact, I barely noticed them on mile repeats. I believe the description is inaccurate, though--the liner seems to be a brief liner to me (which is what's depicted), not a boxer-brief liner. I don't know yet about all the pockets in the liner. I like the idea, but worry about the gels I carry being directly against my skin over the course of a long run of 2-3 hours. I would love to see this in more colors and a bigger line for men's running. May 13, 2014
Perfect length, liner and fabric So, full disclosure: I live for short shorts. I wish Lulu made 3" surge shorts - I would probably have 5 pairs if they did. Anyways, as a avid distance runner these shorts are perfect. 5" length allows for unrestricted movement. Brief liner offers the perfect amount of support with no chafing issues. Zip pocket is convenient. Only complaint: please make these available in more colors so that we avid short short lovers can have more colorful bottoms! April 16, 2014
