moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric is breathable and cottony soft - we love this high-performance fabric for its serious stretch and recovery
lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
why we made this
It doesn't matter how good we are at Kung Fu, it's impossible to do a really good high kick in a pair of jeans. We developed these pants because we wanted to be able to move freely through our yoga practice.
fabric + features
tie the stretch drawcord in the waistband for a proper fit
athletic fit for a muscular posterior (that's hockey butt in layman's terms)
two hip pockets and two rear pockets for your cards and keys
chafe-resistant flat seams won't rub you the wrong way
piles like crazy
The pants are really comfy, warm and stretchy so that's the good about these pants. The bad, though, is that they start to pile (?piling) really quick. Like other reviewers said, they now look like they've been worn for years and years but in fact they've only really been worn a handful of times. For $100 and it being from lulu, I really did expect a lot more. I wouldn't have bought them had I known this before.

material wears poorly and loses its structure
i'm a trainer so these pants were like my work clothes. but after a couple weeks the material began piling between the legs and the pants got very loose, almost looking like a pair of beat up pajama pants.
The seams were constantly fraying and i had to constantly go to the store to get them damaged out and get a new pair. i'm glad lululemon has such great customer service but it was pain in the butt to do that all of the time.

I have worn these pants only two times and they look like they have been worn dozens of times. They feel awesome, but this is not the quality I expect from Lulu let alone $100 pants.

Aimed for Martial Artists?
Don't get me wrong, I love my pair of pants, but the name is a bit misleading. They're called Kung Fu, but as a practitioner of the martial arts, the ankles are lacking security. Unlike the traditional cotton pants that have ribbed ankles, these do not, which get caught on the feet or flap around when doing forms. For us Chinese style martial artists, those ribbed ankles add to the comfort when training. I modified mine with some Velcro. I suggest to lululemon to have ribbed ankles added to these pants and shrink the ankle opening a bit. Other than that, a good pair of pants to study Gung Fu in!

Great concept, cheap execution
5 stars for the design, comfort and workmanship. 0 stars for the quality of the materials. I merely wore the pants 3-4 times for a short evening walk and the fabrics in some parts all pilled. Now these $100 pants look like I wore them for a few years non-stop.

I've worn scrubs to work every day for about 10 years (physician). I wanted to upgrade my look but couldn't bring myself to wear traditional business casual (or, God forbid, a suit and tie). Sweatpants seemed like a decent option but most of the stuff out there (e.g., Nike) is a little too casual and lacks basic features like rear pockets. The Kung Fu Pant, with its upscale look and detailing, fit the bill.

This is the first item from LLL that I've purchased and I can now see why LLL is so popular. These pants are really great. They're really light, soft, and comfortable though its distinguishing feature is its amazing strechiness (is that a word? lol). You know the annoying feel of clothes that "lift" when you move? (some clothing companies use gusseting to limit this lift) but even with the gusseted pieces the lift is only minimized. With LLL's Luon fabric, gusseting is not necessary because the fabric is so stretchy.
About the sizing: I have a stocky build @ 5'7'' 185 lbs with a 32'' waist and the M size fits me great, though I do need the pants tailored at the bottom since the inseam is 32''. I really appreciate the fact that these pants don't have the "skinny" profile because I have big thighs/calfs and skinny pants don't work on me.
P.S. Thanks Lululemon for this great product!

Best pair of sweatpants I've ever owned
Fits great, can wear to work and to and from. Great to workout in. Breathes but stays warm in winter. Fits my legs. These and maybe the new post gravity are the only pair of lulu pants I can comfortably wear. I am not a slim fit kind of guy and have muscular legs (former baseball and hockey player).
Perfect pants for someone who has bigger muscular legs.

Best pants you'll ever own.
After reading most of the reviews on this site, I decided to go ahead and purchase these pants. Although the price tag is a little high, I guarantee that it is well worth the investment. They're perfect for hanging around the house or killing yourself in the gym. Like most of the other Lulu products, they are incredibly comfortable and keep you looking great all day long. The four way stretch guarantees that the pants never feel tight or restrictive, which you notice when doing any sort of lower body exercises. No matter what you're planning on wearing them for, they'll impress you every time you move.
