Awesome piece Ordered this mainly to stay warm on a trip to Washington. I got my regular long sleeve top size 10 (I'm 5'7", 145lbs, 34DD, most of weight in midsection) - size was perfect because I like things to be skimming but not skin tight on my tummy. It's soooo soft and flattering, and very warm even when not working out. I love the front pocket and the turtleneck zip - haven't had issues with a raw zipper edge like others say. The top of the zipper is protected on mine (not a zipper cover, but doesn't touch my skin at all). Also love how the collar lays when unzipped, the style of the thumbholes, and the thinner fabric under the pits for breathability. Another thing to note, the stitching under the chest is ACTUALLY under the chest, not cutting awkwardly across it, which is notable to well-endowed women. December 18, 2014

Base Runner 1/2 Zip - favourite shirt! Lululemon?s Base Runner ˝ zip is one of my favourite LLL items that I own. I have it in the black herringbone rulu version. I wear this for running, post yoga in cool weather, and casually. It was also the perfect shirt for an April 2014 10K and the conditions that day. It is a go to shirt all year long, even for some cool summer evenings this year in Ontario, and it is perfect when I?m in Vancouver. It is so soft and cozy. The back zip pocket is a great size, very practical (fits one?s phone and other items). I like where the zip pocket is located too, nothing flops around. I even like the kangaroo pocket, it comes in handy. I get compliments on the shirt every time I wear it. The only issue with the shirt is that when you have it zipped up, you have to really pull the zipper to the top; not wrench it, just pull it solidly. Otherwise the exposed zipper edge will scratch your neck. No quality or performance issues; have worn and washed many times. Imagine my surprise when this shirt appeared again on wmtm (Oct. 2014) in the parallel stripe black white/black version, and size 4 was still available. I ordered it right away and am happy to have this good luck since I recently returned the Race Your Pace ˝ zip, which overall I was really disappointed with (I?ve even admired all the new colour versions of the RYP ˝ zip, but won?t settle for the deteriorated quality, no matter how great they look). Wherever these were hiding, thanks LLL and my somehow good luck, I'm happy to acquire a second one. October 23, 2014
Love the top, HATE the small hole I also LOVE this top that my bf gave me for Christmas!! I am having a hard time wanting to part with it even with the small hole right below the "right arm thumb whole." I have called the Bellevue WA store to see if they have any more in stock and they do not as well as online only having a size 8 and I wear a 6. My closet is full of LULU shorts, tanks, sports bras and hoodies! I don?t wear anything else to run in! I have clothes from over 6 years ago that still look like new! I just would like to get this top replaced and not have to give it up to something else or to keep checking back at the stores or online to see if they have more in stock and even worse spend the money to take it to an alterations place and have someone else fix the whole. I would think that Lulu would be more than happy to fix alterations. You would think that fixing a zipper would be far worse than a small whole in the seam. Now that I have read the reviews and see that my top isn?t the only one that this has happened too, I would love to hear how Lulu helped you solve the problem. March 10, 2014
Extremely Comfortable and of High Quality This may have been one of my best purchases from lulu. The Rulu material is stretchy and very soft. This pull over fits true to size and is perfect for running. I highly recommend this item to anyone who loves a cozy top that is efficient, yet stylish at the same time. February 23, 2014
Amazing Shirt! I love this shirt! I bought it in herringbone for everyday use, rather than for exercise. The fabric is soft and comfortable, and the style is very flattering. I received it from UPS today, wore it happily today, and ordered another one in black. I range in size from a 2 to a 6 in lulu tops. I got the six in this because I did not want the arms to be tight. It would be slightly more flattering in a 4, but I wanted to be able to move comfortably. For reference, I am 5'2", 108 lbs, 34DD. February 20, 2014
Flattering fit. This is very flattering on. It's true to size. I am a size 6 in tops and purchased a size 6. Heather herring bone has a great look. I am 5'7" 140# athletic. February 16, 2014
Quality Standards I purchased the base runner on 1/4/14. I returned the product to the store on 1/17/14 and instead of exchanging the product it was sent to the seamstress who did an awful job on the repair. I tried to work out the issue with 1.877.263.9300 but who knew the business model of the company was so absurd. I am ticked off to the point that I will never buy a lululemon item ever again.

SHAME ON LULU! I bought the Base Runner 1/2 zip in the blue and was so excited to wear it! My closet is full of lulu and love their tops because they don't stretch and complement my frame. After only wearing this top twice though (washed with other lulu's and hang dried), it has stretched so much in the stomach area that I can't even wear it. I brought it back to the Lynnwood location and told them why I wanted to exchange/return the top. After trying it on for the manager, she claimed that the shirt was NOT stretched and later throughout our conversation said that the top was stretched but because it's body type that destroyed it (5'4" & 130 lbs), it's not the company or products fault... All this being said in front of the staff now gathered around me and the manager. Not only is this a pathetic response but hurtful and demeaning. When I asked to speak to her supervisor, she refused to give me any information. Only after TEN MINUTES of not accepting this as an answer, she gave me a time frame of when the store manager would be in next. I called several times during the listed days and still could not get a hold of the store manager. I'm disgusted that I supported a company that blames their customer's bodies for "ruining" the product. What I find the most disappointing though, is that it's more important to Lululemon to treat their customers like they're indispensable in order to not exchange the defaulted product that they sold them to begin with. I am disappointed in Lululemon's customer service and the quality of the product. February 12, 2014
Love! Except one little thing . . . Love the way this fits - only problem is that when I zip it all the way up, the end of the zipper has a raw, sharp edge that scratches my neck. I live in a town that only has a showroom, and I took it back and they suggested sending it to their seamstress. The only problem is that it takes a week, and I hate to wait that long - but my gear definitely shouldn't be inflicting pain on me! February 11, 2014
