New! Yoga Camp Pant


Just spotted in the stores - the Yoga Camp pant. The are made of the same material as the Dance Studio pant, have a slightly narrower leg, and come in black, wren, and coal. They are $108. Thanks to Kate for these photos. She said she sized up for a roomier fit.

The price is too steep for what you're getting. Frustrated that Lulu keeps upping their prices on their items. Guess I will have to re consider my likes before purchasing anything.

Agreed, $108.00 is too much for this item. I sure hate to see the prices of the fall items!

Kim said...

Agreed. Love these, but not the price :(

Geez Sharon...you actually took some time to read this? What's your focus in life? Other than being unhappy and putting people down with their pastime? At least we have fun!

I'm sure she meant sick in a good way. If not...whatev!

I'm liking these pants, but $108 is too rich for my blood. I have enough lulu pants that fill the need that these are purposed for, so unless I see these in loot, I won't be buying them.

Although, you know that Run:Flight vest that was going for $98? The OC stores seem to have sold out. Sigh - I was hoping to get one in loot. Too bad - but really, a vest for $98 was pushing it for me.

I'm waiting/looking for the lined DSP. Has anybody spotted them yet?

This is an awesome blog. I wanted to get some new gear and this has been so informative. You go to the gym more than 3 times a week, you need clothes that are going to keep up with you!

@ Sharon - it's not my life but my hobby. It's kind of fun because I get to combine fitness and fashion.

@ Michelle - I always refuse to get Lulu vests because they are so pricey but then they sell out quickly and I regret passing on them. It's one of those things you have to hold your nose, pay the price, and then when you wear it a lot you can amortize the price over the number of times you use it.

Don't listen to those negative comments LuluAddict. As you know there are countless of us "addicts" around and personally your blog has been (and is) a huge help and inspiration to me in helping me to decide what pieces to buy (which is practically everything) and what to wear them with. Lululemon clothing is so comfortable, practical and well wearing which is why so many people love it. Keep up the good work!

I'm by no means a Lulu "addict" but I've picked up a few pieces on sale a while back and like to check out the latest desgins. What I've been seeing from Lulu lately is just subpar and not very attractive at all and the price increases are just simply outrageous! My question is are you girls buying Lulu for the name brand even though there could be(and there is)other brands with much nicer designs for less money?Is your addiction to Lulu that great that you will pay up for their clothing even if it's only soso?
PS. I teach spin class PT at 24HF and work for a (retail)marketing company and was just curious, that's all.

Anon 614pm : Since trying out Lulu 3 years ago, I now never wear any other brand for my workouts. I do yoga, TRX, bootcamp and weights training. I buy them because they are comfortable, flattering and in the long run they do last longer than other brands. No fades, hardly ever stretches and keep their shape. I am from Asia, so most people have not even heard of Lululemon. I wear them because it's super flattering and practical. Not all designs suit my figure, but when I find something that do, I will stick to it.

Just like Mel, I too wear Lulu because of the quality of the merchandise. Unfortunately, some of the items do have quality control issues. I just avoid those and spend my money wisely on the stlyes that work for me. I have tried other brands, such as Prana, Athleta, Be Present , Patagonia, Nike, Puma, Adidas etc. I still like Lululemon better, in regards to stlye for my body type (I'm a size 2 in bottoms and 2 or 4 on top), comfort level, and they do last a long time. If you look at the prices of any of these other brands mentioned above, Lulu may be about $10-$15 more but I like them much better and justify the prices. They also last much longer than the rest and I don't "baby" them when washing that much. I practise yoga almost daily the the crops from Lulu is by far the best amongst the rest. And they look good too!

LLA, keep up the good work. I've always enjoyed your blog. Let those "unhappy" people wallow in their unhappiness by putting people down. But it doesn't bother me, and don't let them bother you!

I'm with Mel for all the same reasons. I live in Vancouver, BC and have been wearing Lululemon clothing since it first opened it's doors on 4th Avenue 13 years ago. The quality, comfort, fit and style was ground-breaking back then as it still is today. Nothing I have found can hold a candle to it. So many people complain about the cost and I don't know why - it last for years, is stylish, super- comfortable and extremely flattering - well worth the price. I am still wearing every piece of Lululemon clothing I have ever bought for the last 13 years. I have dozens of pieces and literally live in it day and night, every day. The extremely rare time there is a flaw with an item I take it back and am immediately issued a full refund or a replacement item of the same if I want it. For me as a consumer, brand name means nothing - it's about the aforementioned and Lululemon scores top marks in all categories. The next item in my closet will likely be those practical-looking Yoga Camp Pants!!

Michelle Q said...

@LA - you're totally right - the cost per wear would be definitely worth it for the vest if I wore it enough. Like my Still pants/shorts and Studio pants - I don't mind paying $100 for them since I wear them ALL the time. I loved the look of the vest on me, but truth of the matter is, I get more wear from full jackets than vests.

The yoga camp pants are so ugly on the back! And for $108? That's a funny joke, Lululemon! PASS.

To be honest, I never really thought of wearing Lululemon just because of the brand. I buy them because I look and feel good in them. From where I'm from most people have never even heard of Lululemon. I have tried other brands, they may look nicer but trust me after a few washes or 1 year max they look terrible, faded and feels somewhat thinner. It may be expensive upfront for certain items but they sure last long. No other brand compares to it.

I think alot of people are blinded by their love of Lululemon that they are not seeing the quality decline. I was trying on an InStride jacket last week and I was testing for pilling, a girl aked me what I was doing I told her she responded by Lululemon clothes do not pill like yea right!

This blog is awesome and so are Lululemon clothes. I took a Stride jacket once because of fraying on the sleeves and they quickly and easily gave me a new one. I love the Camp Pants and most of the track style pants. They're cute, but of course not for everyone. People who wnat to criticize this blog are hilarious because not only do they take the time to read it but they take the time to post something nasty- which really shows that they have no life. At least we read and comment about stuff that means something to us! To each their own!

I have been looking for a pair of pants like this for a while and all the previous ones at Lulu have fit too large on me. I saw these today in the store and tried them on and they are really really nice! They look a lot nicer than in the pics and the size 2 actually fits my bum (I am very petite) so I bought them right away. They are expensive but I have been waiting for a pair in this material to actually fit me so I felt justified in my purchase. Anyway, I am very pleased with them.

I find it funny and very interesting that we have these "people" come on here and write rude, ignorant, comments regarding the blog and our love for Lulu, YET they are taking the time to read the blog and obviouly have nothing better to do then post their CRAP on here!! Truly, you are the ones that need to get a life and grow up!

@ anon 6:14 pm - I buy lululemon because they fit and function is superior to what I have found in other brands. I used to buy Nike, Adidas, Marika, Danskin, Champion, New Balance, & Under Armour, to name some of the mainstream brands. I've also tried some of the pricier brands such as Lucy, Athletca, Zobha, and Beyond Yoga. I find Lululemon's fit works for me better than any of the others. I think Lululemon's built in bra is far, FAR superior to anything else out there. I find their technical fabrics much more innovative and breathable than anyone else - sheer luon, silverescent circle mesh to name a couple. I like the style a lot - not too team-wear looking and not too hoochy like Brazilian workout wear. Their technical and cotton pants don't bag in the knees or rear. The fabrics are FANTASTIC at releasing stains. I haven't had trouble with fading and shrinking and the biggest quality issue I have had is some seams coming unraveled which lulu has fixed. Yes, my pants have pilled a bit but I don't think I have any athletic wear where this hasn't happened. I supposed if I bought polyester pants by other manufacturers I could avoid the problem but I find polyester really hot. However, I am not as huge a fan of their casual wear. The fabrics are pretty good about not fading and releasing stains but I think there is more quality issues in that side of the line. Not always, though, but sometimes.

I tried on the Yoga Camp Pant yesterday and fell in love!! i was skeptical because I LOVE my studio pants....but these are really flattering. I love that they can be cropped easier then the studio pant and the pockets on the rear gave me some more umph back there....ya know = )
yes, agreed, steep on the price, however, try them on! you might fall in love too!!

Does anyone find that lulu quality has gone down recently? I tried on a wunder unders and a few other styles of pants tonight, same size as the ones I already have at home, and the luon was totally see through when i stretched out!!
