strong and light, Swift fabric is woven to stand up to whatever we throw at it - we love this technical fabric for its no-bulk, no-nonsense performance
why we made this
The Hawaiian word "Kahuna" means "expert in any profession." We designed these shorts to back us up whether we're hiking, biking or out for a round of golf. Made with durable fabric that's two-way stretch and breathable, they might just help us get to expert status in all things athletic and beyond.
fabric + features
made with durable fabric that has two-way stretch for comfort
these shorts are hemmable - customize the length to your liking at any of our stores (it's our treat)
plenty of pockets to hold all of your stuff
designed not to shrink so there are no surprises in the wash
athletic fit for a muscular posterior (that's hockey butt in layman's terms)
More colors, please
The shorts are great but the color options are not. There are basically 6 different shades of black. I'm sure everyone would enjoy some solid shade of blue like the metal vent tech long sleeve or a white/very light grey.

Former Lulu Fan
I generally love Lululemon products; the quality justifies the price, or at least it did until recently. My husband agreed. So, I gifted him a pair of Kahuna shorts for Christmas. The fit wasn't right, but due to Lululemon's arcane return policy of two weeks of purchase (how does that work with Christmas gifts or other holiday purchases?) he's stuck with $78 shorts that don't fit. The customer service failure turns me off. I don't know that we'll be back. There are too many other good options in quality athletic wear (Sweaty Betty, Lucy, Prana, to name a few) with far better customer service and return policies to stick around.

He loves every pair of Kahuna shorts
This is the fourth pair of Kahuna shorts for my hubby? while the first pair was an sale impulse and sizing was a gamble?we learned that sizing runs small. He is a solid 30 in the real world but with LLL, he is a 32. The Zinfandel color is rich addition to the wardrobe, adding variety without being too flashy!

I've had several pairs of lulu shorts and they just keep getting better. It's light, it's stretchy, it's got the classic cut, it's got some funky colors and fabrics...
I can't imagine how this can be improved without ruining the classic styling ... funkier colors and fabrics, maybe?

I bought these shorts a month ago and I never have regretted anything! Every penny I spent was worth it! They feel great and look nice you can also be active in these shorts with out any restrictions! The phone pocket they have built in is great there is no worry about scratching your phone with loose change or keys! I would recommend every guy in the world these shorts!

best shorts they make - need another color
These are the best shorts ya'll make. Please add a khaki version. You have five black/grey versions, can a brother get an earth tone?

These shorts are great everyday wear shorts. I'd be wary of doing any intense crossfit wods in them though. I need an elastic waistband or drawstring for wods. The fabric is stretchy and won't fade in the wash. There's plenty of room for an athletic guy. The pockets have plenty of room so when you try to dig your phone out you aren't struggling. I'm only 5'8" so lulu altered the length for free too. I'm going to have these on all summer!

The Kahuna short is exactly what I expected, they have a great amount of stretch, feel light-weight, and the fit is great for a guy with a more athletic build. I have to say they probably fit 1 inch smaller than they say, I ordered a 34, fits like a 33. There is some nice flex to the short though and they come pre-shrunk so I wouldn't worry about it. I highly recommend them. Sad to see they have not restocked them on the site, I would also like to see a darker tan, all of their tans seems to be very light.

Kahuna shorts good. Please add more colors.
These shorts r the best fitting shorts I've ever had. The shorts & pocket material are cool as well - love the phone pocket too. Wish they had more cool colors like a brown & different shades of khaki.

Not Quite As Good As The Core Shorts
I bought 2 pairs of these in the store and both are great, but are clearly made of different materials. The "soot" shorts are heavier and look a bit more dressy while the plaid shorts are lighter weight more akin to board shorts. I bought them to wear for golf and they serve this purpose perfectly (great pockets and easy to move in). Though, I could not imagine working out in them at the gym as they suggest. I typically wear a size 32" and needed a 34" in these. Overall, I recommend them to anybody who is looking for a pair of non-gym shorts from Lulu. Next to the Core Shorts these are the best shorts I've tried from Lulu.
