why on earth would they make shorts without pockets..

Couldn't keep these cause pocket too small!
I bought these for my husband who runs quite often, he normally wears the pace breaker short but wanted something a litter shorter for running. He was super stoked with everything about these until he tried fitting his iPhone 6plus in the pocket = no go!
He is able to fit the 6plus in all his other lulu zipper pockets and needs to fit his phone to track runs with the Nike app.
Please make the pocket accommodate a bigger phone and we'll be replacing his pace breaker collection!

So close, yet so far away
5'9 former Soccer star & the leg opening and length are perfect for large legs. LuLu falls short once again on POCKETS. I like using an IPhone app for fitness tracking rather than a wearable & the pockets do not even hold my German car keys. So frustrating. The color is WAY off, but I will be keeping them.

good workout shorts
i like work out a lot and sometimes for runs, I loved the custom shirt holder I found it came in real handy the only thing against the shorts I have is the liner is not supper comfortable but it still works and the side pocket is too small to fit anything like a phone it only really works for money and maybe car keys. but there are gel pockets on the inside waist band witch I found could hold my phone

Did not hold up
I fell in love with these shorts the first few times I wore them. They are lightweight and perfect for running or any kind of activity for that matter. However, after only the second time washing them the fabric started to pill and the elastic drawstring got lost inside the waistband. I wish I could blame it on the washing machine, but I always wash my Lululemon clothes on cold and gentle cycle. I am pretty disappointed that I spent $64 on a pair of shorts that couldn't last two washes. I sill wear them, but I had to cut the drawstring out of the shorts and they look really old and cheap with the amount of pilling in the fabric.
I recommend hand washing them or buying a different pair.

Not bad but nothing special
The shorts did the job but for the price they have a lot better in their lineup. I wish this had pockets so you have a place to put your music player/phone. The area to stuff your shirt is cool and all but I found I didn't really use it to like it enough. I love the repetition shorts for the reason that they are so versatile. The liner in them have pockets below the outer pockets so you can put your phone in it and not have it bounce around. Its compressed onto your leg. I wouldn't buy these again just because they don't have anything on other basic running shorts.

Definitely not boxer brief liners, that language is very misleading. It's a brief. They're great shorts but the brief liner with extended usage can cause maaaajor chaffing problems. Had to cut mine out. Fine for short periods but go linerless or true boxer briefs if you don't want to walk funny after a long run.

Description is a little misleading
I love LuLu clothing. Nothing better to work out in. These shorts fit exactly how they should. I bought these shorts with the expectation that the liner was a boxer brief, as stated in the description. Unfortunately, they are just a brief liner. Make sure to look at all the pictures.

Absolutely the best running shorts around hands down. BUT i noticed mine are falling apart only have a few months of wear. The seam where the zipper pocket is glued together has came completely apart. Not something i would expect from a 60$ pair of running shorts.

I will go ALL DAY with this
I, like another reviewer of these shorts, used to wear Nike running shorts. Now I want to fill my entire shorts drawer with Lululemon 7" Surge shorts. I want one for each day of the week, plus a few extra in case I need to change one out during the day.
They are incredibly comfortable. I use them to run as well as just everyday use. I actually even use them to play beach volleyball. I live in a warm climate that allows me to do so, but it just feels so great. I have several of these shorts already and I literally GO ALL DAY with them. Just fantastic and worth every dollar.
My only criticism, and this is a stretch, is the small pockets inside the shorts near the waistband are pretty useless for me. I can't figure out what to put inside them. They're not large enough for a key. Coins will fall out when running and I can't put my phone in them. The zipper pocket seems to take the use right out of those small pockets. Perhaps a zipper pocket on both sides of the short, same size as it is now, would render those small pockets unnecessary. And perhaps I may not be using them properly.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do-- enough to take the time to write a review! Cheers!
