Surge Short 7"
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!

All my running gear use to be from nike. I tried these on the store and immediately bought two pairs. There's something really special about the fabric. It feels very light, silky, and breathable. I really like all the special details. The liner isn't too restricting. The color combinations are very modern and hip. My only concern was not having the 5 inch surge shorts available at the store. I would have liked to see how those fit better.

Perfect Running Short???
I absolutely love this short. Length is great. Liner is perfect. Material super light and doesn't weigh down when wet.
I would like to see this length/style with pockets like the Pace Breaker short. I use gels during lengthy runs and putting more than one in the left hip pocket is difficult and unbalanced.

I run A LOT! I have owned many pairs of running shorts, and these by far are my favorite. They wick sweat well, are as comfortable on mile 18 as mile 1, and look good. I've also worn them for CrossFit and yoga and they perform equally as well. Great buy!

Have tons of different running shorts and none come close to these! They are super comfortable and the perfect fit/length. I like my shorts a little tighter and a little above the knee and these are perfect for that.
I have had the shorts for about 6 months now and wear them constantly and see no signs of wear or tear.
My only gripe is that these shorts do not come in all white as I would love them for tennis. I would love some other brighter colors too.

first off; i love the elastic band to hold your shirt, because i pretty much take my shirt off a few miles into every run. they are a good length for me (at 6' 10"). they are light and have a comfortable liner that never irritates on the longest of runs. the zipper pocket is nice but only big enough for a key or ipod. overall my favorite running shorts to date. i would love if they came in white...

Obsessed with these shorts!
I love these shorts so much I had to review them. I now own 7 pairs in 5 colors/patterns and obviously they're not cheap... but they are THAT good!
The light, stretchy fabric makes makes them perfect for any workout- I spin obsessively, run, lift and hike every week and I use these shorts for all of the above. I'm a shorter guy (5'8") so these are also the perfect length for me- they land just above the knee when standing so they don't cut me off or make my legs look any shorter than they already are.
They have a brief liner which always fits perfectly (and makes your butt look great too!) and a small pocket that is just the right size for a phone and a credit card. I would recommend these shorts for ANY guy and especially guys who are 5'11" and shorter. They are so comfortable and truly make me excited to workout.

I'm more of a $15 Academy shorts guy so I never thought I would own a pair that cost over $60. You definitely get what you pay for. I just got the Surge Shorts III, they fit great, stay dry, you can hardly tell they are there. When I walk it feels like my wife is brushing her hand over my butt with every step, so I will be buying more of them needless to say ;-)

Shorts are great, minus the liner
I love the shorts. They look great. I only had two issues. There is no pocket high enough to stick an iPod in. My headphones don't reach all the way down to the one zipper pocket on the thigh. The main issue was the liner. Some guys might dig it but for me personally it just bunched everything up and was very uncomfortable. Im perfectly fine with trunk liners, but not brief liners. I loved the shorts so much I just cut out the liner. I wear them for running and cross fit. After cutting out the liner I have no complaints.
