Run: Inspire Crop II *Block-It Pocket
Love these but frustrated
I love these crops so much. I purchased them last year to run the Boston Marathon for charity. These were the ideal pants for the event and the weather for that day. The flexibility and breathability of these crops made running the marathon as comfortable as it could be. I wore these throughout the summer and then packed them away until I recently pulled them out. I noticed that the inner thigh seem came undone. I now have a whole in the pant. This was really disappointing to find as I was planning to wear these for the Boston Marathon again this year. For the price I paid for these I would expect them to last longer than a year with only 6 months of wear. I have years worth of wear out of my cheap 90 Degree and Marika crops. As I look at other reviews, I see that other people have the same complaints. I really want to recommend these crops to other people but am hesitant to send people out to purchase them. I really want to wear these for the marathon as being comfortable during the running is so important.

wonderful crop until a hole started
These crops are so comfortable!! Loved running in them because it was so breathable. A hole started to appear on the inseam while I was running. I am unhappy that these began getting a hole because they are my favorite crop pant to run in. Also, for the price they should not tear this easily.

Love these crops!
These crops are amazing. They stretch to fit your exact body type. They also work really well to keep you cool while you work out and dry very fast.

Overall, these crops are actually pretty good (considering the quality of Lulu pants in the last few years). They are easy to move in, stay up really well during runs, and aren't see-through. My only problem with the pants is that they are shinier than Lulu pants used to be...maybe because of the added lycra now? I think it makes them look kind of cheap. It's not just the luxtreme that this has happened to. My new pair of WU II's have this issue as well (after the addition of lycra). For reference, I'm 5'4" 130b and the 6 fit great.
The bottom line: these crops perform well for running, but I would feel self-conscious running errands in them.

Hole after one month
I've had these crops for a little over a month now, they were my absolute favorites and the most flattering, but just yesterday I found that they have a hole about the size of a quarter in the seam on the upper thigh. For $92, I expect much better from these pants. Very disappointed as my other lululemon crops have not ripped, so I don't know what's wrong with this fabric. Makes me hesitant to purchase from lululemon again and I don't know how I'm going to fix the hole.

I bought these leggings just over a year ago. My first pair lasted just a week. I returned them after two wears because the seaming along the back of the leg was starting to come undone. When I returned them the teller told me that these leggings were 'not to be worn sitting down because that would cause the seaming to break.' Regardless of the fact that the only times I did wear them I wore them to the gym, who sells a legging that can't be sat in?! She did exchange them for a new pair though. And now, after just a year, the seaming in the crotch is completely falling apart. I would like to note that I was travelling for four months of the year and did not bring these crops with me. So, in reality, they have been worn maybe once or twice a week for eight months and they're falling apart. It was a total waste of money in my opinion.

Issues coming up
I bought these pants this past September, and have worn them almost every single week. They're great for dance classes and workouts. I have loved them so much that I bought several shirts, tank tops, headbands, pants, and jackets from Lululemon since then. But today I realized that there was a small but very noticeable hole in the mesh part of the pants, on the thigh. The Lululemon logo is also starting to peel off, for some reason. My sister and my mom have bought items from here because of my recommendations. I'm disappointed that these pants already have issues even though I only bought them a couple months ago. I hope this issue can be resolved.

I got these leggings around the holidays, and they were comfortable and fit great! They're warm and I love the pockets. Recently, they got a rip on the inner thigh, which really upset me considering I haven't worn them very much and they aren't that old. I've been getting lulu leggings for a long time and really expect better out of a product I spent so much money on.

Great, Flattering Fit, BUT Quality Issues
I am a loyal lululemon shopper, and have converted many of my friends to wearing this brand. When they say why would you spend so much on a pair of leggings, I always tell them that they are so much more flattering than any other pair of work out gear you own that they are more than worth it. I have never had a problem with the quality of the gear from lululemon ever, but this pair of crops changed that. After two wears the threads started coming undone on the back of the thigh, it is so clearly visible when I walk that I am unable to wear them anymore.
I am giving two stars because these pants make your backside look great and match a lot of other workout gear, but the quality is definitely not worth the money. I will think long and hard about shopping here again.

I hate the zipper
I love these pants, they are great for the gym, except the zipper. I absolutely hate it! It's a stretch to get my phone to fit in there (please make the pocket bigger) and when I wear these to the gym, the zipper is annoying when I lay down or sit against anything. I wish I got the pair without the zipper but they were on sale. It should be fine for outdoor running but not for the gym.
