Rated 5 out of 5 by mattm Pretty awesome!
The Metal Vent Tech is a pretty amazing shirt. I've been a longtime Under Armour user, and while that certainly serves a purpose, this thing can endure incredibly stressful (sweaty) workouts, and is perfectly nice as a to-go shirt for the day. I plan on purchasing several more of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtSasha Best MVT for the TEEN BOYS!!!!!
I am a proud Mom of the 13 year old boy, who is turning 14 in September. I love these MVT-shirts for my son. As a Mom of a growing Teenager, its important for me to teach him about hygiene and importance of using the Deodorant after showers. With these T-shirts, he is a happy camper!!! He loves the colors, the design and the function of these T-Shirts. My son is very difficult, just as any other teenager about picking the "right" clothing for him. Either he doesn't like the fabric, or the colors, or the sizing, or the way it looks. With these T-Shirts, I just get size L. I know, he can probably fit into the S size, but being self-conscious Teen, he prefers baggy T-Shirts. For Reference, my son is 5.10 in height and weighs about 156 pounds, he is lean.
I washed them so many times and nothing happens to them. These T-Shirts are totally amazing for anyone, who wants to look good, smell good and have a functional item of clothing on them that they can rely on. I totally recommend it. Thanks LuLuLemon for making me a HAPPY MOM!!!!! No more looking around for something that works for about 2 months... These T-Shirts are for at least 2-3 years. P.S. My son said that he got a lot of compliments from girls of his age. He said that all the girls loved the way these T-Shirts looked on him... He even got a few phone numbers from the girls... What's next? Life of adventures of the MVT-shirts!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JeffisAmazing The not so sweet smell of sweat
I got this as a christmas gift last December in deep blue. Really dig the colour. I practice hot yoga and sweat like a beast in it. Fits well for the most part but a bit loose in the belly. It does get saggy when wet, annoying in the hot yogas. I have a few other lululemon shirts I prefer that seem lighter and don't sag as much. I think it might be the in motion shirt.
The big issue is I can't get the smell of sweat out of it. I've stopped wearing it. Can't deal with catching wiffs of old sweat. It's not a bad shirt for everyday use but not good if your pouring sweat

Rated 5 out of 5 by AccroYogi GOODBYE STINKY ARMPITS!!!
My boyfriend was adamant about purchasing clothing from lulu because of the hefty price tag but after much encouragement from my part (and him seeing me day in/day out in lulu gear), he finally purchased this shirt. After much skepticism and grilling of the poor salesperson, I, happily, him, skeptically, left the store with a soon to be discovered, miraculous tshirt.
Let me just say, he wore the shirt a few days in a row for hot yoga, outdoor work, gym, biking and... the shirt did not stink. AT ALL.
Ladies, your boyfriends NEED this shirt. Not only will it benefit them, but it will benefit you! No more stinky, nasty armpit smell! This shirt is a miracle! While it does eventually get a bit smelly, it can easily be worn for a few days without a wash.
Needless to say, he immediately bought 2 more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarrenH Better be good, for $70
And yes, it has been good. Bought a white MVT two weeks ago. It's been through the wash a couple times, no pilling (yet?). Breathable, I like that I can wear it in the gym but also casually when going out. In terms of the stains under the armpit as stated by other people, it may be because of the deodorant/antiperspirant that is being used since most contain aluminum. As for sizing stats, I'm about 5 foot 8, muscular build. Bought a medium and it fits just right on me. I'd recommend it if you're willing to shell out the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MURunner Discoloration
I love almost every Lululemon product I buy (and trust me that's a lot of them), but there is something weird about these shirts and the way they wash. I follow all of the washing instructions - only wash with other Lululemon clothing, air dry, etc. However, 3/6 Metal Vent Short Sleeve Shirts have discoloration around the arm pits and on the back where I sweat a lot when I run. It is like the sweat stained the shirts, which is bizarre. The white shirt looks so bad I can't even wear it anymore. Huge disappointment as these shirts are very comfortable and expensive. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get rid of this discoloration I'd appreciate it because right now I feel like I've wasted a lot of money to wear the shirts just a few times.

I really like lululemon apparel. The quality is not too great though. I have 3 pace breakers and 4 of their tops. I have never encountered this issue before which makes it even more disappointing. The most recent top I bought went through two washes and a hole appeared on the second wash. If you are curious how I wash their products, I turn them inside out, wash only in cold water, and hang dry. This is very disappointing since their apparel is the most comfortable on the market. I can no longer justify the expense when this occurs with such an expensive shirt. I imagine the hole will only get bigger with more washes. Not pleased at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mechie I regret introducing Lulu to my hubby...
My hubby wears suit to work, daily,...and we have service on Saturday and meeting on Sunday...meaning he wears a suit 7 days a week. He was complaining about all his cotton white shirts and how uncomfortable they feel at the end of the day. So, being a good wifey, I took him to Lulu to grab a few things...Metal Vent Tech shirt is one of them.
He LOVES it...He loves it so much that we want to buy 10 of them...But unfortunately the color white in his size are always out of stock. I went to 3 different Lulu and was able to snatch another gray and white for him.
Lulu...if you are reading this...PLEASE get more White in stock!! AND...The contrast stitching are awesome~~~ PLEASE bring in more color!!!
-Comfy material...very soft
-Wicks very very well
-Thread can get pull very easily...stay away from cats
-Sizing is not always consistent between different colors
-Need to put it in a garment bag before throwing it in washer so it'll be pill-free (But then, I wash all my Lulu that way)
-Pricey...but worth it...

Rated 4 out of 5 by kcjnk Awesome Shirt / A Little Inconsistent
I love the Metal Vent Tech series, I have multiple pieces from this line including (long sleeve henleys, long sleeve tech tops, and short sleeve tech tops).
My most recent purchase was 2 from the most recent colorways that were releaseed (heathered bordeaux and bali breeze). I noticed that the two shirts that I just ordered have a slightly different texture/feel to them compares to my plum-colored shirt that I bought last year. This could be because of the "heathered" look for the two new shirts that I bought, but really it's not a big deal.
One thing I have noticed with the top sizing is that the sizes seem to be inconsistent. These two shirts fit a little more snug than my other Metal Vent Tech shirts and also when I've gone into one of the retail locations, i've tried on multiples of the same size shirt to find that they fit looser or tighter, shorter or longer. It's a little weird but the inconsistency is the only thing that makes me have reservations to buying the shirts. If Lululemon didn't have an easy return policy for online orders, i probably would have not made my purchase.
a little pricey for my taste but i still bought them so that's saying something.
The good: these shirts are amazing, they are very lightweight, do an awesome job of wicking moisture away from my body during my sweaty workouts. They are just super comfortable.
this may sound weird, but I like the sleeve length of the short sleeve. it's not too long that i have to scrunch it up on my should when i lift and not too short that my pits show when i go overhead.
