Metal Vent Tech Long Sleeve
don't like the thumbhole
I really loved the last version of this tech shirt, but the thumbholes on the new version need to go. They make the shirt less comfortable and in my mind less attractive.

It's not quite the same
I love the fabric and functionality of this shirt. I have a bunch of the older models without the thumbholes. I do like the idea of thumbholes, so I thought I'd give the shirt a try but it is just weird. It looks like a moth ate my shirt or a rip in the sleeve. Just having open thumbholes in a shirt doesn't seem right. My sweat sessions 1/2 zips and hoodies have "hidden" thumbholes which I think solves the problem that these shirts have. Please Lulu, update tall metal vent tech long sleeves with hidden thumbholes, so you can satisfy both parties of your customers!

Good for really sweat activities
As an athlete (figure skater)I love skating in those long sleeves shirts( i have three of those).The first thing I like that even i always sweat a lot on the ice,the shirt doesn't show that my armpits are sweating so I'm not afraid to have more movements with my arms up.The second thing a like that the fabric is so amazing and the shirt is light,which makes my movements on the ice easier,because I don't feel any pressure from my shirt.The last thing I like that it fits really nice and looks good and i can wear this shirt on my official practices (I'm going to Us Championship) and all i can say-I love it.

I love the shirt, however; a week after I bought it, there was a small thread coming out of the right sleeve. It's not a huge deal but for a 74 dollar shirt I expected a little more.

I got this top for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it, mainly because he said it's comfortable. He wears medium standard t-shirts, 5'10" weighing 145lbs and I got him a medium. It is loose on him, how he prefers, but I presume a small would have also worked. He especially likes having a shirt with thumbholes.

Lightweight, easy fit, good stretch, and yes, THUMBHOLES. It isn't compression, almost fitted, just hangs well and out of the way...you forget it's there, and in the end, isn't that the point?

I participate in High Interval Training and tough cardio workouts. I sweat a lot! I have found that the thumbholes help keep my hands dry as I grip dumbells, do burpees etc. Keep the thumbholes!

Thumbholes for the win!
I love the thumbholes on these shirts, as much as any other reviewer has stated the opposite. I don't see what is wrong with them, as they are a great alternative to a lighter weight glove that you want to end up shedding half way through your workout.
The fit and length are perfect, and I will continue to buy these in every color. These really are the best lighter weight long sleeve workout shirts you will ever find. I always feel mobile and not bogged down with any excess sweat. Lightweight enough for the cooler weather and an awesome layer piece.

I don't understand why people are complaining about the thumb holes. Here's an idea- don't put your thumbs in them if you don't like them. I bought this shirt specifically because it HAS thumb holes. When I run, I hate how my UA long sleeve shirts "ride up" your arm while moving. I constantly have to adjust them. This shirt? It just stays perfectly in place because of the thumb holes. When I don't want the sleeve covering my hand? Wait for it.... I take my thumbs out and they're like normal sleeves! Wow! If you want to nitpick so badly over thumb holes, pretty sure the Conduct doesn't have them, and it's more or less the same shirt. Now if only there were some more solid color options...

Got this shirt for my husband for his birthday, he loves the fit and material...I love the anti-stink part. Fitting in with the other reviews, he does prefer no thumbholes in his shirts, but is able to overlook it for the fit and quality of the top. It's wonderfully versatile, which is another plus. He's 5'9", 180lbs and a medium was a perfect fit.
