    I'm in love with the Lululemon Run Response short...

    - Not too short, but not too long
    - Not too baggy, but not too tight
    - boxer brief liner
    - My favorite feature... A THIRD POCKET WITH A ZIPPER!! I've been looking for a good short with one of these for a looong time.

    Anyone else ever tried them?

    Wow! They're expensive. icon_neutral.gif

    But those are still too long for me. I've been happy with Soffe shorts for the gym. Around $15. They run mid-length. Made of mesh, so they stretch and don't restrict movement.

    For running, I got a pair of Asics half splits, which I'm wearing in my profile pic. Super comfortable.

    Best shorts ever made! I have five pairs! They also make great boxer briefs, socks and shirts!

    Yes I have several pairs of those lululemon shorts. They're awesome if price isn't an issue for you. Completely recommended.

    I hate people who bitch over a brand -__- if you don't like it, don't buy it. I buy it because it's what feels the most comfortable.

    Looks as functional as any other pair of shorts, but it's great you found you like, I guess.

    LOL. i just bought a pair 3 days ago. I was using cheap 'walmart' brand nylon (with sewn in short) and found as the weather warms up, my ass was chaffed big time within an hour. They were recommended by the trained at my gym. Well worth the price. They are awesome, no chaffing, they dry in 2 seconds. Sometimes you just have to buy the 'right' stuff and not cheap out!! icon_wink.gif

    Too long. Too baggy. Too expensive.

    I discovered these a few years ago. Just like regular old fashioned tennis shorts. The right length. Real pockets. Mesh liner. Cheap. Drip-dry micro fabric. No logo.

    In fact, I haven't worn anything else since about April.

    Never was a fan of Lululemon. All the other athletic companies always seem to be about one generation further along in fabrics. Best of all that I have found for now is the Nike Combat gear. Everything from the compression shorts to the tees are the best on the market for fit, fabric, and comfort. Nike-Pro-Combat-Core-Compression-6-Mens-

    Those are the "Light as Air" correct? Do they have a zip pocket?

    JackBlair69 saidMy Walmart shorts were about $7. They do the job.


    ^^^
    This!

    There is no reason to pay that much $$$ for gym clothes.

    my favorite athletic shorts are like this but much less form fitting. grey off-brand $5 find at goodwill (ran them through the washer about 7 times before wearing them, in case anyone is wondering). with a black tank they just look great icon_biggrin.gif

    If you have nice legs and you're not shy. PT shorts are the most comfortable for running. They run small, so you gotta get one or two sizes up.
