COOLMAX® is lightweight, soft and stretchy - made from 100% polyester fibres, it move sweat away from the body to the outer layer of the fabric
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
When it comes to shorts, our needs are simple: we want them to be lightweight and comfortable. We designed this pair out of inherently stretchy, moisture-wicking Swift fabric and cut them generously through the leg and rear. We gave them a built-in liner to keep our 'stuff' secure when we run.
fabric + features
let off steam through the narrow mesh panels at the side and rear of the short
cinch the drawcord at the waist for a proper fit
store your stuff in the two deep side pockets
stash your keys in the secure zipper pocket
flat seams help keep your jewels from getting chafed
Walked in the store today to just look around and I found these shorts. I liked that they had a inner boxer inside. Bought a pair and wore to the gym for leg day. Great shorts and very comfortable. Worth the money,.

Best short ever
Love this short. I'm 5'9 and Athletic, so always struggled with Nike training shorts being way too long, especially on me, they would be past the knees, looking way too hip hop. These LL shorts are perfect, they hit just a smidge above the knee, which is perfect. I use for everything, spin class, lifting, running - all good. The liner seems to do ok, not sure it gives the best support for my stuff ever, but it's alright. I did notice a fabric change a few months ago, seems thinner. Not sure I love the thinner fabric. Also, some of the pop colors come in this weird fabric with lines in it, sort of like a herringbone-ish fabric that's too thick and crunch. I wish you guys made a legit camo print in this short, like you did in the core short. None of these weird floral prints, come on! Anyway, this is the perfect short!

I am in love with these shorts! They're perfect for hot yoga, running, and just laying around. I have three pairs with more on the way! Great job Lulu!

good length, lays nice, good material. looks like i need to get a clothes steamer to get out the wrinkles. i can live with the liner, would have gave 5 stars if it did not have one. i will wear with out underwear, otherwise it will be too bulky, and i wear very thin trunks, wont mention their name but i pay $30.00 for trunks, better than any liner you will get. i originally thought i would cut the liner out , but it will not work that way , you will see through it. will get some of the other colors, the other companies are behind in their shorts compared to lulu.

The Pace Breaker Short was the second item I have ever purchased from Lululemon and I must say it has been my favorite. I am very obsessive about my gym shorts, and they made the cut. They are comfortable and fitted at the same time. I wear them when I go to the gym but also when I am running errands. My favorite feature would be the built in boxer brief as well as the zipper pocket so I know that my ID and money are safe while at the gym. The only problem I have run into is they somewhat absorb oder. But I have found that detergents targeting sports wear actually work. I suggest air drying it helps keep the fabric stronger.

practice makes Perfect for this PBS..
I been using the Pace Breaker Short to my Yoga practice for awhile now and it seems my body really like it, not like the different shorts that I used/wore in the fast were very uncomfortable. The liner and the outside materials are very lightweights and fit very well.. I like the Fact that made in the Philippines!..

Crafted by Angels
These are easily the best, most comfortable gym shorts I have ever worn. The built in liner is a huge plus and the lightweight material make them feel like a second skin. I would highly recommend these shorts to anyone, for any kind of athletic activity.

I bought these because one good pair of shorts is not enough, and since my first pair was L.L. I thought I would try another pair. I have another older pair like these with the brief liner in blue.
Unfortunately, while wearing these my electronics (ipod and phone) started to get steamy and couldn't risk $$$ products for "just" a pair of shorts. Yes L.L. makes great stuff, but maybe the staff were right? - avoid dark colored clothing if you train hard and want to protect your gear.
I contacted L.L. and we solved the issue. Koodos to the customer support, this is why I keep coming back for more.
Stick with a non-liner short if you care about your ipod, wrecking it for this pair of shorts is not worth it. However, L.L. makes the best clothes for fitness so I am sure there is something else down the road that will make up for this downfall.

Liner does not support.
I tried these on in the store with my underwear on (obviously). The outer fabric felt good, and I liked the length. I was looking for shorts to wear for strength training and cardio at the gym.
The problem was once I actually wore them with the just the built-in liner the first time at the gym, there was zero support. The liner hung too low in the crotch. It was actually worse than no underwear at all, as it kept bunching up and distracting me.
Luckily, the manager at my local store listened and let me exchange them for a different style short. This time I went without any liner, and just wear my own undergarments.
