Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew
I bought this top and fell in love with the feel of the shirt unfortunately i used the shirt at the gym and it snagged on basically everything that touched me.. The black lines started to unravel I am so disappointed I spent alot on this shirt and it my second time wearing this shirt and now is now junk!

I ordered this top online and was extremely disappointed with the quality.
I noticed a hole in it in the sleeve area.
Am extremely surprised with the quality of lululemon clothing since I have always had a good experience before.
The quality seems to be on the decline and I feel my money wasted.

Tempo Stripe White Black has no body mapping vents
I am giving four stars because I have four of these shirts and I love them. Three of them are extremely soft and manage to keep me warm but not hot when running outside on a cool night.
But my 'tempo stripe white black' is not as comfortable as the other colors I have. Today as I hung it up to dry, I realized that it is because the shirt does NOT have the body mapping ventilation that the others do. I went online to see if mine was an oddity, but from the pictures it appears that the white black tempo strip just does not have the ventilation around the neck, down the back, or along the inner arm. Thus, I would suggest the shirt, just not in the white-black tempo strip.

I love swiftly tech material. I have some tanks and tshirts but the long sleeves. I bought it when I was on vacation and worn once and found a small whole on my sleeve. So disappointed...

Love the fit and look, but poor quality
I fell in love with this when I found it online, so I was so excited when I was able to find the color I liked in my size in a store. It fits like a glove, looks great, and seems like it would function well for my long runs outside. I bought it immediately!
However, I took it out of the bag today and put it on to go on my run and found that there was a HUGE hole in the fabric on the sleeve! This wasn't even the exact shirt I had tried on in store (I had grabbed a different color in my size before buying) so this is the first time it was tried on at all. I'm not sure I'll be getting this one again, because the fabric quality is obviously cheap and not made to last long. I was definitely expecting more from a $70 shirt, lululemon!!!

I have to say I LOVE the new rugby swiftly!! They are a bit thicker than the normal swiftly which is good for my cold Colorado weather. I often have problem with riding up while running but rugby one stays where it should be so I never had to pull down during my 10mile run. I love it so much I wanted to get another color but it got sold out unfortunately. Please make more pretty colors!!

New, Bad, Cheap Fabric
Lulu loyalists, beware: these are not the classic Swiftlys you know and love. The description seems the same, but the fabric is quite different. It's thicker and much more "plasticy" than the former fabric. Gone are the thin silver threads and in their place is a feeling of thick polyester. On the bright side, for those who complained about snags, these are more durable, but that special, soft, Swiftly fabric is gone.
I haven't run-tested the new fabric, but agree with another reviewer that it doesn't seem like it would breathe and I'm not too confident that it will have the same odor controlling properties. It's just totally different from the old fabric.
Lulu, you had such a wonderful product in the Swiftly. It was simple, but wonderfully functional and, for a workout t-shirt, luxurious. Please revert to the old quality!

Fabric and Fit: change isn't always good
I waited and waited until colors were replenished on the Run Swiftly tech shirts and wow, what a complete and utter disappointment! First of all, my favorite - the scoop neck - isn't available in new sizes or colors. So, I ordered the crew neck and it's thicker fabric, a wider fit, doesn't breathe, and is not nearly as comfortable. It also arrived with two snags on it! I normally wear a 6 in the shirt and the logo and shape of the shirt was extremely slenderizing. This new one looks boxy and unshapely. This shirt will be going back and I guess I'll sit with a gift card or store credit until I find something I like better - or Lululemon figures out that sometimes you don't need to change it when it's perfect the way it was.

Different fabric on the latest colors
I'm talking about the latest release - the pink and the purple striped shirts. I appreciate what you're trying to do, Lulu, and it's nice that you've listened and created a version of this shirt that seems much more durable than the versions past. But - now it's a different shirt. The fabric is different - it lacks all the ventilation of the regular swiftly fabric, and it's definitely heavier. It still feels like a nice silky top, and it probably works great for winter running, but it's not the swiftly fabric I'm used to. Although, maybe that's a blessing because it doesn't seem nearly as prone to snags. Also the shirt is cut bigger, especially in the sleeves. I usually take a 6 in this top and the sleeves, particularly the part covering my hands, were very loose. You may want to size down. For me, I like the sleeves to hug my wrists and hands, so it was a dealbreaker. However, I know many others have complained about the sleeves being too tight, so it may work out for those folks. I wish I could test it out for running to see if it would be sufficiently breathable, but I didn't want to take the risk in case it didn't work. Maybe someone else can post :)
