Great shorts for long distance runsLove these shorts - wore them for a 15k and they held plenty of stuff (poncho, gels, sunglasses, phone, cards, chapstick... everything!). They are snug but not too tight, and never rode up for me. The outer pockets are very secure, but if you have sharp items make sure you put something softer between them and your skin, as you will feel them during activity. Also, if you don't want something getting sweaty, put it in a ziplock bag.
I haven't owned them for very long (one month) but I really hope these last a long time. These will be my only shorts for future long races.
Only downside for the black color is that it comes across as a little shiny when stretched, but not see-through thankfully...!
Lulu, please make more shorts (and tights) with more storage, like these!

Not bad..The longer length is definitely a plus but I just feel so awkward in these. They did allow free movement in class which was definitely a plus, but I do prefer to wear my 7/8s instead.

Great Short - better still the lengthWore this short to class last night and it was fantastic, have been waiting forever for a "longer" short to be able to wear in extreme heat as given my age I prefer a longer length, and finally some success in this area.
Waistband as usual was a flat / neat/ firm, the leg of the short it self did not ride up as some have a tendancy to do - I did not need to do any "adjusting" during my class at all - which is a big plus.
So hopefully Lulu continue to make shorts of all lengths (especially on the longer side) for all "ages" to suit us desperate "older" customers - they do from time to time, but it would be good to see the longer length as a "standard" in their range all the time, I have just ordered a 2nd pair in case this does not happen.
