Run: Inspire Crop II *Block-It Pocket
I bought these pants a couple months ago hoping that they would last me for years but they are already ruined. I went on one run with these and the threads were coming loose and there is a hole starting to form at the bottom of my thigh. I have gone to lululemon many times throughout my life and recommending them to several friends but i am very disappointed in these.
I would not recommend buying these pants because they will get ruined within three months!

Designed ONLY for running--still disappointed
I shared my thoughts on the Run: Inspire Crop II and, unfortunately, have to reiterate much of that.
The bottom line is that I bought these pants because I was unimpressed with how sheer the Run: Inspire Crop IIs have become. I own several pairs from previous years that are not sheer and that I've used for everything from volleyball to running to yoga. Anyway, when I went in to my local Lululemon to buy new crops and explained my dilemma, the sales associate told me these would be less sheer and I'd be happier. I explained to the associate that although I run and would be using them for running, I also wanted to use them for spinning, barre, etc. She assured me that I should be all set. When I tried them on in store they DID appear to be less sheer and that was impressive. I bought a size 6 instead of my more typical size 4 to ensure that there was enough fabric to go around and they wouldn't be see through.
Fast forward a week. I wore these pants for the first (and only) time when I went to barre a few days ago. While I was there, I noticed that the seam was coming undone both at the bottom hem (below calf) and in the upper leg area before the class even started. Then, during class, a friend turned to me and told me she could see my pink panties. Um..oops! The icing on the cake was that the pants were too big on my waist (but yes, I did tighten the drawcord and that helped) so a tiny bit uncomfortable with much bending up and down.
I brought the pants back and was told they should be used for nothing but running. Luxtreme will be see through if you bend or move much, so be prepared to ONLY use these for running. Honestly, as comfortable and flattering as they were, I wouldn't even want them for running considering how quickly the seam was unraveling (and it seems like that's a common problem). No way. I will not spend $92 on a pair of pants that is see through when I bend and move--even if I DID just use them for running, I like to stretch before and after my runs so that would be rather embarrassing, as well.
Are our pleas being heard, Lulu? Do you see that you have a loyal fan base that's slowly diminishing? I can only give Lululemon so many chances, especially because returns and exchanges are such a hassle and generally leave me feeling like I'm the person who has done something wrong because your product is not a quality product. If the quality doesn't improve, it doesn't matter how cute or flattering any pant/short/dress/bra/top is, people will stop buying them. Please reassess and go back to the way things were made circa 2010!

They Stretch TOO Much
I've worn these for a few weeks, once a week, and they're already way too stretched out around my hips. I have to constantly pull them up and they are not comfy at all. This is something I expect in a $20 pair of leggings, not these.

After so hearing much hype about Lululemon, I saved up to finally buy my first piece of Lululemon wear. I was directed to these running crops, since I don't yoga. All I heard from everyone was how I would never need another pair of crops again! I was so disappointed when after just a few runs, the seams started splitting along the side and crotch area. After another run, there was a visible hole that I couldn't risk getting any larger. These are unfortunately garbage now, and so is my $100.

I have worn Lululemon for years and hv been very happy. However, this style seems to hv been "sewn" together with tape rather than thread. After about two months of wearing, the inseam split, and I ended up with a huge hole on the right side of my pant leg.

I have been obsessed with these leggings for the past month and have been wearing them every chance I can. Unfortunately the material has formed a hole near my crotch area making these leggings unwearable. I own other Lulu leggings, and unfortunately spent more than I should have on these without knowing the quality of the leggings.

This is my first product purchased from Lulu and I was so excited and had very high expectations. As these are extremely ideal for running, since purchasing them i've worn them in the last two weeks like 10 times. And each time i've hand washed and hung to dry. Unfortunately now the seams on the side are unraveling and i'm considering taking them back in --it would make sense if they were falling apart due to machine wash, but that is definitely not the case considering i've been SUPER paranoid about even putting them in the drier. At this point i'm not sure i would recommend as they are falling the seams are unravelling for a very high cost. :/

New to Lululemon
Ever since I started going to ?The Fit Shop? to get my work out on, I noticed that most people had really cute athletic attire. So of course, I had to find out what everyone was wearing so I could try and look just as good while I got my butt kicked in class. Lululemon was all I heard so I went to my closest Lululemon store, which was located in Aventura Mall in Aventura, FL. First pair of Lululemon crops and I am officially hocked. These crops are amazing and the material is so soft and the waistband sits at just the right height, which stays firmly in place with no roll downs. I love the fact that they also don?t chafe or rub.

loved them until they started falling apart
I bought these crops a few weeks ago, and I fell in love with them when I first tried them on. They were extremely comfy and I loved the block it pocket. I wore this pair a few times and only had washed them twice before I started to notice the stitched seams were coming apart and the mesh in the back was already wearing. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of these pants for the price I paid. $100 crops should not be falling apart after 2 weeks. And I can't return them because I have already worn them and I bought this pair in San Francisco (not where I reside). I have been a fan of lululemon crops and pants for years, and this is the first pair that have made me think twice about investing so much money into a brand that needs to work on the quality of the merchandise they sell. Such a disappointment.

Super comfortable but wear out quickly
I was so in love with these pants -they fit fantastically, are amazingly comfortable and I thought these are the ones for me...until the stitching wore out and there are now holes in the legs. For a pant this pricey, I expected better durability.
