Say, "no," to chafing and, "yes," to extra sweaty workouts.
why we made this
We made this lightweight, all-sport top with anti-stink properties so we don't feel bad when we forget it in the trunk of our car after a post-work pickup game. We added mesh venting in our high sweat areas (a.k.a. body-mapping) so air flows through.
the breathable Silverescent® is anti-stink
the body-mapped mesh placement promotes airflow to help you stay cool
say no to chafing, this shirt's body is seam-free
preshrunk so you don't kick your dryer on laundry day
He misses the three stitches on the shoulder.
My boyfriend loves these shirts. He can literally come to dinner right after work (at a gym), and he won't smell like he's been working out all day. The price point is a little high, but for good, quality lululemon shirts, it is worth it. Not all of the colors feature the three little stitches on one shoulder. He liked this (and I did too) because it's unique, and it was also what set the look of this shirt apart from all the other dri-fit type shirts. No one mistakes lulu for something else when they see the three stitches on the shoulder. Bring it back!

Lighter colors = different size
I have two Metal Vent T's in "black" and "heathered black" in size medium and they fit great. Even after a sweaty workout these two shirts do their job.
I recently bought two new metal vent t's in "frond" and "kayak blue" and I feel that the sizing is completely different than the darker colors. I tried them on in Medium and they were fine but after a sweaty workout these shirts turn into an extra large and are practically hanging off of me.
Shouldn't your shirts all be the same size even if they are a different color?

Great shirt but....
I bought two of these shirts for the gym and I love them, they are comfortable and can be worn in public and ect. Downside is one got a snag in the dryer so I have sent it back to lulu now I hang dry them always, I'm broad shouldered and thin wasted and these shirts feel a little baggy around the waist, the small was too tight in the store and the medium was alright, I hope lulu fixes the sizes soon, I enjoy seeing my muscles in the gym ;)

Could not ask for better, except the new odd size
I have heard about the widen selection of sizes on mens line, which now includes XS and XXL. However, I did not know until I tried new ones today that existing sizing has been completely changed as well. I fit perfectly into the old Large and I've never even bought anything below L for ANY tops from ANY brands except sleeveless shirts, which I prefer to have much more fitted. So I was told to sizing down and try it which I did, and it was a bit tight for my taste. Large looked as if I was wearing a Tommy Bahama lounge shirt, and medium looked quite too fashionable and fitting to me. Dilemma right there. I own almost 10 or these in many different colors and quite disappointed to see the change, now making me quite hesitant to collect more colors.
Other than the sizing issue, it's the best workout shirt you can get on the market, I guarantee! I work out often and engage in differnt types of sports as well including spinning which results in high volume of sweating at the end. I wore this to the spin class three times in a row (and normally everyone including me gets completely wet), not only the sweat disappeared immediately when working out, it never smelled. I know it doesnt sound quite clean but this one held up onto it. love the silverascent.

Bought this for my husband - he loves the sweat-wicking and seamless comfort.
Caution - avoid dryer as this material tends to snag easily.

I purchased two of these shirts for my boyfriend and was extremely disappointed to see that one of them had a huge snag in it after just a few washes. I noticed that lululemon recommends heading in to a store to consult with an expert when there are issues that come up with clothes so I did just that. The sales associate immediately said that it must be his fault that he has the snag and that you have to be very careful with these shirts because they are delicate. When I purchased the shirt it was with the intent that it would be a great shirt for him to work out in and wear around comfortably, I wasn't going for delicate. Anyway, she had me leave the shirt with them so that it could be sent out to be hemmed to stop the snag. I was so disappointed to pick up the shirt and find that the snag looked worse than ever (it ended up looking like a cross and the snag had grown in size).
Bottom line is, he loves the shirts but we think it is a waste of money if the quality isn't reflected in the product. I thought that lululemon would stand by their product and resolve the issue, instead, he wears the shirt with a snagged cross on his chest. I am weary to purchase any more because it just doesn't seem worth the $64

I am new to lululemon clothing and followed the advice online on how to properly wash these tops. After washing the tops for the first time they are already fraying. The wash cycle was on delicate as well. I am very surprised by the quality that $64 has brought me. I am currently looking for a higher quality clothing brand to work out in.

Colors and V-necks!
Love the shirt, I have all the greys but the regular vent tech (not camo) needs some more colors, true black, beaming blue, maybe some reds!? Not a fan of the dual colors though. Bring some more variety.
Also what about some v-neck vent techs?

please make it in black, true black
love the shirt, the only thing that would make it better was if it were available in black, true black, not dark greyish
