Run: Swiftly Tech Tank
Pleasantly Surprised, by Tank in ORIGINAL Material
This is a review for the original swiftly material, which is a lightweight material. The tanks in the newer thicker stripes recently put out are much thicker and those would definately be too hot. I alread tried it in the long sleeved shirts and didn't like them at all!! The newer material doesn't breathe and feels inferior.
When I first saw these I had no desire to try them out because of the high neck. I sweat a lot when I work out, and I didn't think I'd like all that fabric around my neck. But during the Black Friday sale, I picked up a couple just because they were on sale.
I wore my lightweight tank to a crossfit WOD, and I was surprised that I didn't mind the high neck..although it could be slightly lower.
I got my usual size 6. It fits just slightly looser around the waist, which I didn't mind because sometimes I do just want to take a break from all the form fitted tanks I usually wear. But it's not a boxy fit, either.
I also found this to be flattering for the shoulders. So if you want to show off your shoulders, this is a good top for you. If more colors are added in the original lightweight material, I will buy more. Definitely pleasantly surprised by this tank.

Yay for high neck!
I love the swiftly fabric & decided to try the high neck to avoid a chichi show in yoga class. I tend to buy 6 in tanks and 8 other shirts. I am 32DD, 132lbs. I bought the 8 so it wouldn't be too fitted (ok... show my muffin top). I wish I would have bought the 6 because, as others have mentioned, the arm holes are cut in in the front, so it looks a little baggy but not bad. I will definitely buy more.

Not for Hot Yoga
I purchased this tank in hopes of having a new hot yoga top, as I don't love showing off my breasts while flowing. Unfortunately, I was so hot the entire time. I had to strip down to my sportsbra halfway through class! The high neckline also collects sweat so there was a dark band that slowly moved down throughout class while the rest of the tank was dry. Okay tank, but not for intense sweating.

Two Thumbs UP!!!!!!
I have noticed that the swiftly material has IMO drastically improved (on all swiftly top versions)! The fabric is still delicate but now it just feels like butter, so so soft!
This tank is beautifully cut and it fits TTS. I am petite, between size 2 and 4 and got this one in size 4 for a bit looser fit. Purchased the night fall and I absolutely LOVE it! I am for sure going back for other colors!!

Let's discuss this high neck...
My absolute favorite tank. When I am swinging my Kettlebells or jumping all around, my shirt isn't sliding down all over the place. The colors are great, and the high neck just makes it pure perfection. LOVE.

Insanely Good Tank
I got this for my first full marathon. I love all the swift tanks, but the high neck drew me in to this one. I tested it out on an 18 mile long run and had no issues! So I knew I could run a full 26.2 miles with no problems. I love the extra protection of more fabric. I'm a small chested gal (32C), but I love the snug fit. I ordered a 6 and it fit perfectly. Again, no issues and even after running for so long I didn't smell that terrible thanks to the silverescent technology. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!

This is my new favorite shirt, and I keep coming back for more!
I have gotten so so so many compliments on this shirt. I can bend down, lift, cycle, anything with this shirt and not feel self conscious; absolutely no boobage!
Looks slimming in the waist and makes shoulders look wonderful.
So pleased and I highly recommend!

Love the modest neckline!
I wear the tank predominantly for crossfit. This tank allows me to move freely without having to be self-conscious about showing cleavage at the gym. It also does not slip or flip up when bending / jumping / doing burpees because of the fit around the hips.
Love the fit of this tank! I bought multiples.

One of my favorites
This shirt is wonderful. The high neck and narrower cut in the front is very flattering, the fabric is so soft and quick-drying, and the color/subtle pattern is really lovely in person. I agree with some of the other reviewers on the fact that you will get warmer than usual if you use it for running. I have worn it to spin class (definitely recommend) and on runs outside (would recommend doing this only if it's cooler outside, i.e. not in the 90s in New Orleans like I did).

Is it the fabric or design? Either way, size down.
I wanted to love this design so I could add another 'regular' to my collection of high neck line tanks in which to teach indoor cycle classes. I don't hate it but ladies who usually buy light luon or light rulu tanks? SIZE DOWN.
In all fairness, I've never owned a shirt made out of this fabric (Seamless Silverescent?), so it may just be that I'm not familiar with the fabric and those who know, know. But it has way less stretch than light luon or rulu light. I ordered a 10 (my usual LLL tank size) and it bags out around the bust and belly.
Technically, the tank performs VERY WELL! It wicks sweat like a dry sponge and does not stink after!
