Tracker Short II *2-way Stretch
Love! Just not in love
I love these shorts!! I accidentally got the wrong size so i have to use the tightening belt inside but that helps! I love the way they look on my curvy body. I wish that it was bigger around the calfs. The length is great! Everything is as amazing as shorts could be just needs more leg room. I have very muscular legs so it only rides up which gets obnoxious but i deal with it!

Nice shorts, but.......
I was hesitant to spend so much since I don't wear shorts to often, however, I really love these shorts! Unfortunately, the first time I wore them, the logo sticker came right off and was stuck to my car seat when I got up. It may sound lame, but I like the logo on the shorts and I was really disappointed when it came right off! I wonder if anyone else has had this problem?

Favorite multipurpose shorts
I know these have mixed reviews, but I LOVE these shorts! I work out 5-6 times a week, and rotate thru 4 different patterns/colors of the Tracker II's. They're comfortable for both weight training and outdoor running. I love the fit, how they feel when I move, and the length. I did have an issue with clear wires poking me the first few times I washed my first pair, but I removed/cut the clear wires and haven't had issues since; I know that I shouldn't *have* to do that with lulu shorts, but I'm glad I didn't let that stop me from finding out how amazing these are! I know it's unlikely, but I hope they keep making tracker II (not the III), because for the first time I'm 100% comfortable when training.

Worst Shorts Ever.
I am a runner, and picky about my shorts. These were so subpar it was ridiculous. Well, let me rephrase, the fit was awesome. I loved the pockets and it stretched well in all the right areas and didn't ride up. After a 10k run (it was literally the first time I had worn the shorts) and a wash, I noticed that on the insides of the legs it was wearing out. Literally. It was pilling to the point where the fabric was see through. I kid you not. Never will I ever purchase a short from Lulu again. What a waste of $58. Ill stick with my Nikes. Thanks.

Good all around workout short
I bought these a size down from what I normally buy, which is a 10. They looked a big large in the photo and I was happy with my decision, even though my legs are muscular and large. The flexible waistband is super comfortable and not restricting and allows more of your natural curve to show, especially if just wearing these with a sports bra for CrossFit or running. The length is nice, and not too short. I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant and these are doing great for runs, no issues, even with my body changing. The side zipper I utilize quite often than if the zipper is located in the back, which is the case for most lulu shorts.

I have two pairs of lulu shorts and countless pairs of tights. I am a size 4-6 (I prefer 4 in wonder under leggings, 6 in running material tights which I have found to be tighter), and bought these shorts and a pair of Run Times shorts in a size 6. These Tracker shorts are definitely the best that lululemon has to offer (for my body type at least), and my favorite shorts out of any brand. The wider, looser fit on the legs is more comfortable to run in, and I think more flattering, for my larger looking thighs. The only problem I have with these shorts is that I found the inside lining to be fairly uncomfortable (it chaffs), and I wear nike compression shorts underneath. Lulu-- maybe change the fabric of the lining to something more like the Run Times shorts? Otherwise, these shorts are AMAZING and definitely worth the money. I wear them at least 3 times as often as other shorts that are only 20 dollars less. Would love to buy another pair, maybe they'll make more colors soon?

Ok shorts - they'll do for living room workouts
I have thighs and purchased these in the WMTM section in December 2014 as areward for working out daily for 2 months straight
The quality of the material is good, and I like the waistband. It wlso makes my caboose look great.
When I first purchased them, I had serious camel toe (I purchased size 10, my normal Lulu tights size).
3 months later, the CT isn't so bad, as my legs are in better shape now, but they're not the most comfortable to work out in now. There is plenty of leg room and the waist isn't tight, so I'm pretty sure it isn't my size or the size of the shorts - it's just the way they were designed?
I was SO excited to own Lulu shorts, but will only be able to wear them in my living room, where i work out.
I've worn them maybe 4 times to work out.
So unless you have totally flat abs (??) and perhaps minimal leg size, you might be able to avoid the camel toe.
So sad :(

love them, but not holding up well
I love these shorts and have three pairs. Recently I noticed the threads unraveling on the back. This is disappointing since they aren't cheap shorts. I thought they were high quality, but I haven't had them a year and handwash in cold and hang dry but one pair isn't holding up. I've also noticed inconsistency in sizing. One of my pairs is a little shorter than the others and fits slightly differently. So if you order multiple pairs in different patterns try them all on.

wonderful fit and feel
I'm so picky about my workout shorts. I either like tight shorts (spandex tight) or loose shorts that won't ride up. The riding up is the huge problem in the fitness clothing world. This was my first lululemon purchase and it felt like a huge splurge for $50+ for a pair of black shorts, but I just got them and I love them!!! They are loose around the legs, but fit nicely (and flatteringly) around the tummy. The zippered pocket is a huge bonus. I'd love if these were available in more colors! (Hint, hint!) ;)

Ongoing waist band problems
I've had several pairs of the tracker II shorts in both 2 and 4 way stretch. I loved them in the beginning because they offered a little more room and coverage for my athletic and stocky build. I have now damaged out 3 of 5 pairs I bought because the waistband keeps crinkling/wrinkling in front after washing and has become so mis-shapen that I can't wear them comfortably because it no longer lays flat and digs in. Maybe it's because I have a little bit of a tummy in the same spot, but that doesn't seem like that should be a problem in a short that costs $54. I've never had the poking issue. I will have to go back to the Run Times or be brave and try the Speed Shorts.
When I took the last pair back, the person in the store said this was to be expected. Really? I don't think so. I'm done with the Tracker series.
