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.
fabric + features
Silverescent™ powered by X-STATIC® inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria on the top
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
The hubs was VERY hesitant to ever try Lulu. So, what did I do? I bought him his first shirt and pair of shorts. This was the shirt and he now owns it in numerous colors. It's all he wears to workout (crossfit/lift) in. Love the color options, love the fit, and love the way it flatters his body type. Better than anything though is that the shirt literally doesn't let him stink. The silverescent fabric is amazing and truly works! Even if he lounges in his workout gear for hours after a workout (don't judge, we all do it), he still isn't smelly. I can't say enough good things about this product, and neither can my husband. And trust me, he's tough on his workout gear.

Where's my motivation?
I just received my Pigment Blue Metal Vent Tech SS and when I went to see what motivational saying was hidden in the bottom hem, I found that it was totally blank! The size is there on the side, but there is no words at all. ALL my other colors have something there. Hopefully this is the only one that got overlooked. It was one of the things I looked forward to with these shirts, kind of like a fortune cookie! Please, don't stop putting this small detail on the shirts!

Are you guys doing something differently?
Absolutely love these shirts. Picked up a couple a few years ago and I put those bad boys TO WORK and they're still holding strong...up until a 3 months ago, i decided to get a new one.
The new one, in white (or an off white), it started pilling in no more than 10 washes, and little black dots (looks like mould), tho it may be from laundry but I always separate my lights & darks...
I just want to know if you've changed the material or manufacturing process over the past few years which makes the shirts more susceptible to piling.

I purchased this shirt because it looked good and was supposed to be stink free. I really liked the shirt, and planned to buy a few more. I washed the shirt according to the specs and found tears along the perforated portions of the fabric. Extremely disappointed in the durability of this garment. It makes me question whether to buy anything else from LLL. I may be shopping elsewhere, where the goods are Made in America and are more durable than they are expensive.

Too delicate for CrossFit
Lululemon came to my box for a community workout and to ply their wares. I went ahead and dropped $64 on a t-shirt to see what all the fuss was about. The shirt fit great and had a wonderful hand to it. So far so good. Next WOD I wore it to had atlas stone cleans. Long story short, fabric tore pretty easy. Never had a problem with regular cotton/poly shirts with similar WODS, so there's my 2 cents.

Looks nice, very comfortable, but I am inbetween sizes. I was told to go with an XL rather than a large like I usually wear, but it seems I am in between sizes. A Large is a little too small and XL (which I purchased) is a bit too big. It just seems shapeless and frumpy on me.
It wrinkles really easily too (you even see it in the pictures on the model!)

Quality Control Issues
I recently visited your Halifax location to pick up some new items as I live out of town. I have had these or similar shirts for over 4 years with no issues. They fit great (subjective) and never wore out despite constant heavy use. They also never smelled after repearted workouts unlike many synthetic shirts. I still have them but wanted something new.
I found a couple in my size and tried them on. The first one was great, but had three hooks in the fabric that were quite noticeable. Not a big deal, but not at the price these are going for! I tried another colour and again it was great, no issues. With that I tried one in black, although it looked more grey. It was the same model and size, but was noticeably shorter and fit differently. So, I was only able to buy one out of three shirts in the store due to what I percieve to be quality control issues. I would have bought all three shirts otherwise. This has also discouraged me from online sales as there is sizing inconsistencies.
I have yet to wear the new shirt, so I will reserve judgement on wether it can live up to the standards set by the same shirts circa 2009. I bought a pair of shorts with a liner at this same store last summer and within a month the liner was torn and since then the liner has worn to the point it is useless. Similar shorts I bought in 2009 are still in good shape despite constant heavy use. Am I seeing a pattern? Time will tell.

Great Men's Shirt for Yoga and Pilates
I am a yoga practitioner and a Pilates instructor. I am very impressed with the Metal Vent Tech short sleeve shirt (black). I am 5'9" and 200 pounds; this shirt is very comfortable and doesn't smell bad after one session (to include hot yoga). This shirt has a tailored cut, yet is easy to move in. The length of the shirt is "viewer friendly"--whether I'm upside down, prone, on my side, or on my back, I am completely covered. Modesty in fashion is a definite plus for a male instructor and the Metal Vent Tech short sleeve shirt definitely conveys an aura of professionalism and athleticism for the wearer!

From great to poor
Feels good when you put on but item will stretch out a lot. Especially after sweating. Have to buy one size down. Also sizing is different on the different colors as other users have said.
Some are longer and some even a little narrower.
A very comfortable shirt and great for every day wear or to work out in, but useless if it stretches to look like a dress...

I wore this shirt one time, and I got yellow stains on it after only one wear. Right in the armpit area. I have a black one and i love it, but the spry blue shirt is awful. I want to somehow get a refund or a return for my money back
