Heathered Slate is Luxtreme???
Let me start by saying I LOVE my CRBs. I've been waiting for a dark gray one to come back into stock so when the Heathered Slate popped up a week ago, I jumped on it. I ordered it along with the Gingham White/Black and they just came yesterday. I immediately realized that the Heathered Slate was NOT Luon but instead Luxtreme and the tag confirmed this. I happen to love the Luxtreme but it does irk me a little that I thought I was ordering one thing but received another. Perhaps the Luxtreme CRBs should be listed separately?

This tank has changed!
I own a bunch of CRBs, all bought within the last 2ish years. Due to their durable nature, I've never had to replace one yet! However, I managed to lose my standard black one, so I finally decided to go buy a new one. I loved it just the same, until I went to wear it for the second time (yes, I only got to wear it once - and I wasn't even working out!) and it had a giant hole in it, almost an inch in diameter! And I have no idea how it even got there! I couldn't believe it, of all the CRBs I own I've never seen a hole in one before!
I know that the fabric has changed, and honestly, I'm usually all for the changes LLL has made to their clothing! But to sacrifice quality is just not okay. I know I shouldn't be upset over a tank top (haha) but I am super disappointed in this. Unfortunately I live 5 hours from my nearest store, so I won't be returning this one.
If you're expecting the old, durable quality CRBs, I'd hold off on this one. Maybe I just got a bad one, but a heads up should be given that you need to be extremely cautious with this one - and I'm not sure who wants to be extremely cautious of ripping their clothes during a workout!
(For reference, I am short with a curvy/thick/muscular build and a competitive powerlifter. These tanks always lasted through some seriously intense workouts... until now!)

Another staple in the Lulu world, this tank has the perfect fit and length to cover some of the bum. The fabric is so soft and lays smoothly on my skin and figure.

I'd recommend the CRB with a big caveat
I have loved the CRB's. I have dozens, but something has changed in the material. I still buy them. In fact just ordered two on WMTM. BUT, in the last year I have ruined two of them (one within the first wearing) by wearing them with race belts or backpacks. I have raced in these things for years with no problems, but the CRB pilled terribly in the area of my spibelt in my spring marathon. I've subsequently had another one pill badly using a camelbak on a trail run. They are both in such terrible shape that they are useless to me now. I've attempted to take the brand new one that was ruined back to the store, but bc/ I'm outside of the very limited return window I'm evidently out of luck. Lulu so needs to get with the program on their return policy. Despite the fact that I prefer Lulu clothes, I spend 4x with the "no hassle, wear it, love it or return it" company just because of the hassle of returns at Lulu. (worn or not).
Net, on the CRB....I'll only be wearing them for activities that don't involve fuel belts or any other possible "rubs" in the future.

Love this tank so much
Love this top. I wear it for crossfit and it wicks sweat and doesn't budge. Holds up very well. I put it in the washer but hang dry. They're longer length but I like it this way. Very flattering tanks especially with the Free to be Wild and Energy bras! I have 5 of them! I'm usually a 6 all around in Lulu, this tank is good in a 4 and a 6 for me.

Go To Tank
The CRB has been my go to tank for some time. I love the comfort and the longer length. I'm 6 foot so longer is hard to find at times. Only issue I'm having now is a couple of my hems are coming unraveled which is pretty frustrating seeing is I take very good care of them. Other then that I've never had one complaint.

Probably my favorite tank top ever
I bought the black cool racerback shirt because I loved the length and the fit. After wearing it for three days straight I knew I was in love and ordered the black and white striped version. I'll be living in these shirts all summer for sure.

I really do love this tank top, even the material is different than the usual but it is great. Great length great fit.
The only problem is with the white it gets stained. I went out on a run and came back with my white tank top all stained from my shorts or my running belt. This has never happened to any other top even the white ones!
I washed it immediately but there still remains a very prominent rust coloured stain all across the back. Disappointed in this.

versatile and comfy tank
I've worn this tank out and about but also to crossfit. I love the patterns Lulu offers so I actually have this in two prints! It's comfy and easy to wear. Highly recommend this item! Kept me cool when I was walking all around town on my recent trip to Europe. But also was durable and great during a crossfit work out. Love it!
