Pace Breaker Short *Luxtreme Liner
I use these shorts mainly for cycling, running, and working out. The liner is perfect and the length feels right. They control sweat well when cycling. I like that they have pockets. There's some decent prints available, although I would like to see more. The only complaint is the tags that LL puts in their clothes. You have to cut them out because they are 3 inches long of the most uncomfortable fabric, and after you cut them out it's not always easy to remember what the name of the product or the size that you bought, when you want to buy more.

These shorts are first and foremost super comfortable...they are also extremely versatile from anything to yoga having the liner so NO man parts falling out scaring the class....to running, to chilling, to wearing out to dinner. :) My only request is they come in more colors than blacks and boring patterns. Whites, bright blues they have are nice...just add some color to the mix! Aloha and ommmmmmmmm

Great for 2 a days/all day use
The liner elevates these shorts past the other pace breakers, definitely worth the slight increase in cost. The liner has a snug compression and uses a technical fabric that wicks sweat and keeps you from stinking in that area. It minimizes sweat better than any other brands i've used and compliments my other workout gear with the low key colors. I like that they added the blue one and I was sure to pick it up right away because the new colors sell out quick!
This short is the one that comes in mostly solid colors and that is a-ok. More choices would be nice though. I don't like doubling up on the exact same color.
You can use these all day with your sweat drying up super quick and having no odor as well. I love these for days when I do two different workouts as I do not need to change outfits as it is extremely versatile short for running/yoga/crossfit/whatever pretty much. I've done spin in these.
They have a great stretch and don't limit mobility. There are two deep pockets as well as a zip up side pocket that actually sits on your hip sideways so a barbell won't brush against it as you do various moves such as clean/deadlift/anything else that brushes against the thigh. Extremely durable and will not fray or pill. Obviously don't go trail running and do crunches on the rocky floor and expect it to hold up but for an indoor gym environment they hold up really well. They are easy to launder lulu has specific instructions what I like to do is hand wash cold with liquid detergent and air dry. Machine wash cold/tumble dry low with like fabrics works best. I have taken out a lot of different stains be it food/oil/coffee/dirt/sweat/etc no problem.

Well designed, but zipper broke on second run
These are great running shorts. Just the right length, the liner is great, and they have a zippered perfect pocket for stashing even large phones. As far as the design goes, the only thing I'd change would be adding a small pocket near the waistband to stash keys or other small heavy items that rattle around in the other pockets.
I really want to love these shorts, but unfortunately the zipper on the side pocket broke on my second run. Now that pocket is useless, since it is a vertical slash pocket. For the price of these shorts, I expect better quality. I'm very disappointed.

Solid Gym shorts
I have two pairs of these shorts in different colors, and love them. The only thing is, I have thin legs and the liners aren't tight enough to stay in place. Often times they ride up, which is slightly annoying.

Best shorts ever
I bought these shorts for yoga and they are fantastic!! I decided to use them for rowing and they work equally as well. The fabric is quick drying, the fit is the best I've ever had. The length is perfect and the pockets are a nice plus. I'm going to buy a few more pairs for spinning and would like to wear them for everyday shorts but my wife hasn't approved-yet.

These shorts seem to be built well. They are really light and very comfortable.

Good but the waist band...
I really enjoy the liner in these shorts, super soft, keep everything where it should be, wick the moisture right off the skin at the gym. The actual shorts are roomy and lose which i like a lot! The only downside is the waist band... Its made of the same fabric as the outside of the short and kind of holds the moisture against the skin, it also has a tendency to roll down when you bend over or sit down. Kind of annoying, I wish it was a little bigger and had a soft liner in it. Hands down the best shorts I've ever owned, but I wish there was a little bit more attention to detail.

Swim fabric option?
Hadn't yet made up my mind about the liner when I purchased these shorts, but ended up liking the versatility afforded by the liner/length/style combination. I enjoy wearing them for just about anything (gym, running, yoga, lounging on couch, etc.). However, I would personally love to see this exact same style (including liner) offered in a swim fabric option!!!

Problem with Luxtreme liner
Overall, good shorts.
However, Luxtreme version of Pace Breaker shorts is $10 more than regular version of the shorts. The problem is that on the products photo, it shows that Luxtreme fabric covers both front part and thighs which is not true. I got the shorts today and found out that Luxtreme fabric is only applied on front part of liner. Very disappointed.
