Rated 4 out of 5 by dancer124 AMAZING SHORTS! but could be better
I have been an avid lululemon wearer and Surge shorts owner for at least 4 years now. I wear them on almost a daily basis in dance and fitness classes, and now own about 20 pairs. I LOVE most of the new patterns released, but it is seeming like you make only one pair in an XXL. They tend to sell out in seconds, and I have noticed that stores have stopped carrying the fun patterns and colors in xxl as well, sticking to mostly black. I wish that the larger sizes were more available because I haven't found something that fits and works as well as surge shorts do. Peace, love and lulu!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alwxman Quality Running Short
Very comfortable. Several pockets for id, keys and gels during long runs. Reflective stripes to stay visible in the early mornings. Liner fit was perfect. Material lightweight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jordie Great shorts but wear out quickly
I have several pairs of these shorts and absolutely love the fit and the placement of the pocket keeps my iPhone/iPod out of my way in the gym. Any fellow lifters with big legs may find a cheaper alternative a better choice as most pairs of the Surge short I own have worn out the crotch. Yes, I wear them a lot. But at a price point of $50+ for shorts, I'd expect them to last more than half a year.

Finally! This is exactly what I've been waiting for. I held off on buying anything from Lulu due the colors and designs they had released for the Fall season. Now they've finally come out with exactly what I was looking for! Keep 'em coming!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by OCbanana Fabric pilling
I have two pair of Surge shorts, and I've got to say, although the fit is great, the fabric and build quality may not be the best I've seen from Lulu. The fabric is pilling in certain spots on both of them and the liner in the waste tie in one of them is starting to come out of the hole. The shorts are great to run in and feel great on, but given I've only had them now for 6 months with maybe 12-15 wears between each of them, I don't think they are worth the price tag. I take special care to when washing them and hang dry them, so not certain what the issue is other than not the most durable fabric. I may have to stick with the Pace Breaker moving forward or one of the other brands I have in my wardrobe.
Overall a great looking and feeling pair of shorts, but not for the long haul...

I bought two pairs of these shorts and they ROCK. I am a dancer and wear them all the time. They're my go to exercise shorts and are so comfortable. Perfect for just about anything from working out to lounging.They stretch with ease and don't restrict in any way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Turfie Can Surge Shorts and Pace Breakers Make A Baby?!?!
I love the pace breakers but wanted something a little shorter.
Can you take the liner out of the Pace Breakers and put them into the Surge and add at least one decent sized pocket or........
add the shirt holder on the back and then take 2" off of the Pace Breakers?
Make those because both those shorts lack those things.
Otherwise, these are great for a run where you do not need to carry any items at all. The gel pouches are rendered useless as you would have to undo the shorts to get to them. The pocket can carry a key, or some very small items and that's it. I bought them for longer runs but cant pack a bar, keys, and a little bit of money in the small pocket. So they get used for shorter distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoLifter Love these shorts
I love these shorts. Probably have 8 pairs. They're comfortable, light and great for the gym. The length is perfect - not too short not too long. The small pocket issue is minor to me but a slightly bigger pocket to accommodate an iPhone would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seneca Great short with a bad rep!
Well, I'm not usually one to write too many reviews - but the poor Surge needs someone in their corner! Maybe it's the stats, which prove people are much more likely to submit a negative review before going out of their way to post something positive. Or, maybe there's genuinely issues with the shorts or (more importantly) the expectations they had for their shorts...
Anyways, I primarily use these for HoYo (Hot Yoga). After trying just about every short in the store and all kinds of otehr options over the years - these are my go to threads! I own several pairs and love every single one of them. The liner is great for holding everything in, even when upside down. The fabric keeps mass amounts of sweat off my legs. The stretch moves with my body, leaving in feel like I'm not wearing anything at all.
These get used 2-7 times per week in some intensely hot, sweaty and uncomfortable positions. They're holding up well and I'll be getting more in the future! They're perfect for what I expect of them in a yoga class.
