We designed this run top to be our constant companion whenever we lace up our sneakers. We made the body seamless to keep us comfortable when we get super sweaty on long runs and designed it to be lightweight so it's easy to carry when we need to strip down.
fabric + features
Silverescent™ powered by X-STATIC® inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria on the long sleeve
the tee's core construction is seamless to help keep sweaty skin from getting irritated
wear this on its own or as a lightweight base layer in cool weather workouts
where there are seams, they are engineered flat to help keep chafing at bay
the thumbholes help keep sleeves down and hands warm
I love the run: swiftly series and this is no exception. Once again I have several of these in different colours. Looks great with a pair of casual leggings or jeans and works well as a thin base layer for outdoor sports. Wear them under my scrubs all the time and its a very comfy fit for a long day at work. I normally wear a size 4 but went with a size 6 and don't regret it.... still form fitting but more comfortable on the arms.

I bought this top in the heather cadet blue and it is BEAUTIFUL. Almost appears more gray than blue. This top is SO comfortable. I love the soft feel of the fabric and the thumb holes are a plus! It is incredibly flattering and I've been pairing it with speed shorts or WU crops. I Crossfit and haven't had any issues with snagging. I wish I had this in every color!!

My favorite running shirt!
I have four long sleeve swiftlys and love them for running! The sleeve length is perfect and I like the snugness of the arms but then I have skinny arms. I have had no problem with snagging or stretching out and I have worn them all multiple times. I always wash them in a garment bag, cold water and hang to dry. Keep making these in all the pretty colors!

Snag snag snag
I absolutely LOVE the way this shirt feels and fits...but I ran in it once and it has a huge snag in it. I don't know how that could happen so quickly. I feel like for the price, it's just so darn fragile. It is a major bummer since I bought two and also a short sleeve one!!!

This is a great run shirt, and has lots of great features like the thumb holes which I love. My one complaint would be I bought the size 4 since I have a size 6 in the short sleeve version, and felt that one was too big. It fits really well, but when I run, it rides up which is annoying. The size 6 also somewhat rides up, but not as badly. Really cute shirt though and like the way it looks/feels.

light weight long sleeve
i have this shirt in a few colors. two of the colors (lighter ones) are see through while the other two are ok (darker of colors). so may recommend the darker colors.
i like wearing them when i do my crossfit workouts and running. they aren't warm so would need another layer if you get cold. they are ok in 50 degree weather

Disappointed, quality keeps going downhill.
I bought this shirt 2 days ago, wore it for the first time yesterday. 2 hours after I put on, my husband points out a giant hole on the front of the shirt! I didn't snag or tear it anywhere! How does that happen? I have so many of these shirts and can tell a noticeable decline in quality with each one. Won't be buying again.

I bought this shirt in Nova Scotia while visiting family, and when i came back to ontario i wore it a couple times and it snagged under the arm pit and it turned into a hole. I only hand washed the shirt once with cold water. I have no way of returning it back to Nova Scotia and no longer have the receipt. I own a lot of lulu items and i wasn't impressed with this one. I've had crops for 4 years that still look brand new.

Handle with care
Resisted buying this for a long time because of all the reports of snags. Finally did purchase -- one of the older fabric ones left from prior year. Handled it very carefully -- but -- first day I wore this -- when I got on the elliptical machine, I took it off, folded carefully and placed it on the floor, and then put my weight lifting gloves on top of it. Big mistake. The gloves were closed but the tiny bit of exposed velcro caught the shirt and I got a small snag. Now whose fault is this? Clearly not Lululemon's fault. This shirt is extremely delicate, to be sure, and extra vigilance is required. But this makes me wonder if all the complaints about snags are really deserved.

Poor quality on new shirts
I have this top in several colors. I have had no issues with the shirts I bought early in the season. I just ordered the two pinks and the lighter one is so tight on my forearms I cannot wear it. The Paris pink snagged on the first wear and now has a dime sized hole in it. I won't be purchasing this shirt again. I will attempt to return it but have very little hope as Lulu hasn't been willing to return defective items in the past.
