Surge Short 5" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color in other short styles I absolutely love the viridian green color of these shorts, but I am very disappointed that this color is only available in the 5" surge shorts and not available in other surge shorts lengths. I definitely would purchase these for my boyfriend if they were in the 9" or 11" style and not the 5". I keep checking the site constantly to see if the color option is available in other short styles but sadly it has not happened. Please make that color available in more short style options :)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite shorts These are by far the best shorts lululemon makes. They're light, fit perfectly, not too tight, dry fast, and breathe really well. The 5" is a perfect length for long runs as well as casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shorter please These shorts are great. I picked up both the 5" and 3" shorts in Australia. I was happy that we have the 5" online in the USA too. I wish the 3" were available here. Overall they move well and are very comfortable. Great for working out or just lounging around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My fav shorts These are my favorite lulu shorts. They fit my hockey legs really well, and are light and stay dry very well too. My only issue is that the pocket where the zipper comes off like a month after my purchase. So I have to wear core shorts under my Lulu Surge Shorts so that nobody can see my skin underneath. Also, the pocket flapping around is a bit annoying now. I would 100% buy these again, I can never seem to find my size and colour in stores but I would recommend these for sure. I have about 6-7 pairs of shorts from lulu and the surge 5' is my favourite! 5/5 product 3/5 durability

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite running shorts - Best Surge yet I have a few different versions of Surge 5" shorts and these are the best iteration yet. The fit is great , pocket in the back so weight is distributed evenly, and the current version (Spring 17, apparently) has two internal gel-sized pockets that I personally don't use but I know some people like and seems to have been missing from previous versions. Also really like the kinetic green multi color (I'm tired of gray and black), and the length is great for running,. Hope Lulu keeps making these and keeps coming out with non-boring colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ColorVoid I love these shorts. Was planning on getting a couple more. Thankfully, I snagged a pair before Lulu went ninja. Why no more colors? It seems like the company is no longer catering to runners; running shorts are definitely on the backburner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately Lululemon doesn't make great running shorts So I was looking for a good length running short and thought Lululemon would have considered everything in their design. First of all, these are a good length for regular training, I run about 35-45 mpw and these are a cooler design (temperature wise). Now the bad news. The placement of the pocket is on the side, so if you place your keys in the key pocket, it is constantly rubbing during a run. Nike and most other manufacturers place this on the backside so there's no rubbing. First problem is that you feel the key the entire run. Secondly, this wears through the material. The liner is also not the most comfortable out there. For the money, you can get 2-3 pairs of Nike or UA shorts for the same price and probably 70% of the comfort with more longevity. Sad, as I really wanted to like these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever I feel bad... I wear these all the time..too much in fact. Summer, winter, no matter. I wear them all the time. Oh and I run in them too. Waiting for XL to come in stock so I can order a 3rd set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shorts This is my first pair of lululemon shorts because I had never seen anything shorter than 7 inches in the stores. I'm glad I found these online. They're great all around, good quality and comfortable for long runs. Wish they sold these in different color variations and in stores!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome running shorts....but first off, i have three pairs of the 5" Surge short. I have spent many laps on the track in them and run many marathons in them - they are a great short. I went in to buy another pair this afternoon, and was sad to see that the two gel pockets on the inside front part of the short are no longer there. For marathons and long training runs, in the absence of these pockets make the shorts unsuitable. Too bad...please put the pockets back in them!!!
