[Costco] Karbon Men's 5-Pocket Pant - $18.99 in-store, $22.99 online

If you are a fan of the Lululemon Men's ABC (Anti Ball Crushing) Pant, these Karbon Traveller Pants are a pretty decent imitation for 14% of the price (18.99 vs 138.00).

The ABC Pant is very comfortable and I finally got a pair last year for my birthday from my wife. I used to think my levis were comfy, but after putting these on, I never looked back.

Just tried on the Karbon, and while they are definitely not as well designed, they are very good value. My main issue with the Karbon is that my thighs are bit thick, so you can see the hem of my boxers whereas the ABC pant, they don't show at all.

Comfort is definitely very comparable however.

Deal ends this Sunday.
I bought 2 pairs, one black, one grey

These are not comparable whatsoever to Lululemon lol. Do you actually have both?

Curious why do you consider them not comparable?

I do have the ABC pants, and from a comfort standpoint, I think they are very comparable.

Maybe it depends on the size of the balls?

They don’t fit the same, aren’t made of the same material. Why do you think they are comparable? Just that they’re pants lol?

I dunno. Maybe Lululemon has more clearance.

Is the fit true to size? I hate returning stuff at Costco.

Agree completely...downright fugly and nothing like the LL but for $19.00 they address nakedness if that's the priority.

No. Very odd fitting especially at thighs

I found the fit of the Karbon to be narrower than most.
I normally wear a 29-30 waist and the 30 was too tight and ended up getting the 32.

Based on the ABC, I thought they were crotch less. That would have been quite the look.

Easy fix. You just have to switch to a thong.

I agree. The material seems a little lighter on the Karbon. I also hate the sew on button they used. Makes it feel really budget.
But the Kirkland Signature travel pant looks and feels like a copy of the Lulu commission style pants. Very comfortable.
Either is a good choice.

The length on these are extremely long.
There's a line on the back which is supposed to be behind your knee but on the size small, it ends up about halfway down my calf.
I usually wear 30x30 pants by the way.

They're so soft and cheap though that I might just get them hemmed and use them to lounge around at home.

Zipper height cut makes it look like a woman's pants. I guess style is slowly going to the androgynous look. Awful!

My wife bought me these pants. I stood in line for 45 to return them. I've asked my wife to no longer buy me pants
