Forthright 1/2 Zip
Cute and sexy casual jacket
I'm not a runner. So my review is a little more superficial and fashion related?
I love this top/jacket and would buy it in any and ever color made. I wear it To and From and as a casual piece. In fact paired with the Yoga Over Skirt, I have worn it with a pair of funky heels to accept an award at a funky event. And I wore it at a casual party I hosted. Oh and it was part of my ensemble on Opening Day for the Toledo Mud Hens which started with yoga at noon and ended with fine dining at 9pm.
The zip can go low. This allows you to reveal assets or a cute tank. I've done both. I've worn a Run Swiftly Racer back with this top. The color can pop through the zippered Vneck and the color can also pop out below the elastic bottom of the top.
It is warm and has (sort of ) hideable cuffins.

I LOVE it! The material is oh so soft and the fit is flattering and comfy without being tight!
Reviews are correct fits true to size I am 5'1 120lb am normally a 6 in lulu tops and bought a six and it's great!
Was so won over by the reviews I bought 2 online and am not disappointed! Will definitely consider buying one of every colour!
Thanks lululemon and reviewers! When u all give 5 stars it really deserves it!!

really disappointing fit & function
I am a poor graduate student and runner who is very lucky to have an extremely thoughtful & generous mother who gifts me Lululemon clothing. I was elated to get a couple of new items in her birthday box to me -- a rain jacket which I love love love (and has received lots of compliments), and the Forthright 1/2 zip. As soon as I pulled it out of the box, I could tell it would fit awkwardly -- but due to Lululemon's crazy-short return policy (2 weeks? come on guys, that is unrealistic -- I didn't even open my birthday gift within that window of time!), it was mine for keeps. So I took it out for a run today; and even though it's comfortable enough, it is indeed really unflattering -- but worse than that, it's pretty impractical as a running top. I either have to pull the waistband elastic over my bum (repeatedly, since it's not long enough to stay that way throughout), or it bunches at my waist and the whole thing balloons up around my torso in an annoying and uncomfortable way. And the iPhone pocket?, forget it -- all the loose fabric in this tops means that the entire pouch bounces around with every stride; add a phone to the mix, and it's totally not an option.
I've never written a clothing review before, but I am so disappointed in this top -- firstly due to the short return policy, and then with the fit and the functionality of the pocket. I wish you guys had a "give it a run" return policy (plus, obviously, more than a 2-week window) -- if I'd spent $100 of my very hard-earned income on this item, I'd be pretty upset! I love all my other Lululemon tops but this one is a major disappointment.

Absolutely love this pullover. It is lightweight, comfortable, and looks effortlessly put together when I just have to run out of the house. Would definitely recommend. I got it in a 4 and it's loose enough to wear a shirt under comfortably but not large and baggy like a sweatshirt!

My favorite running top!
This is so far my favorite running top. I run a half marathon with it and shorter runs in the morning and at night. I wish Lulu can add more colors other than the black, grey and green. I have the green stripe and grey, didn't buy the black as I already own many pieces in that color. I think I'll be wearing this top for traveling too!

Unlike the other zip ups from Lululemon, this zip up fits loose, but not too loose. It's extremely flattering and comfy!
I thought about buying 2, i'll probably kick myself for not.

LoVe ThIs ToP - WaNt MoRe CoLoRs!!
I LOVE THIS TOP! It is soooo incredibly soft! I would say it runs a little bit larger than most run tops because the waist is more pillowy- but I think this is great for those days when you just don't feel like skin tight gear. I don't think I could have sized down because the arms would have been too tight, but maybe (I have a broad back and shoulders from lifting)!!
Would love to have picked up in the soot (I have the Bali Stripe- GORGEOUS) but I waited too long.... PLEASE MAKE MORE "FUN" COLORS!!

i love the forthright 1/2 zip top!! the rulu fabric is so incredibly soft! size 4 fit my 5"3, 32E, 112 lb body. i've worn it a number of times since i bought it last week in both Ohio while visiting and CO (where i reside). this will be my go-to spring running top for those chilly morning sunrise or chilly evening sunset runs. only reason i gave it 4 stars is because of the price. i love lulu, but everything is just so expensive.

Fit is Great
I can't comment about how this washes yet, but the fit is excellent. I am 5'2", 125 and a 34D, I ordered a 6; I think a 4 would have been too short, even though I wear a 4 in the Stride jacket. This pullover is so cute and lightweight, not too tight so great for layering. If there were more colors I would order them.

Very comfortable and warm
I really like this shirt for running (or just wearing around). It is nice and warm, but not too hot either. The length is good (not too short) and the elastic at the bottom keeps the cold out. The arms are long which I like and I especially like the thumb holes, I think all running shirts should have these! Only strange thing is how you can open the zipper from the bottom? I got this shirt as a gift and would buy more if they were about half the price.
