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.

Perfect for chilly runs
I live in North Dakota, where frigid temps are common throughout the year. I own two Swiftly LS shirts; one purchased in October 2012 (gray/black) and one received as a gift in December 2013 (turquoise). They work great on their own (or over a tank) during the spring and fall months. During the winter, many of my runs are moved indoors due to subzero temps, but if it is warmer (10-25 degrees F) I will layer this top over a tank and under a jacket and be good to go. The older top has two very small snags on the front. They are not very noticeable, and I think a little wear is to be expected for a shirt that I have been wearing for a year and a half. The newer shirt has not displayed any snags or signs of wear at this point. This is a versatile piece that those of us up north can wear at least three seasons a year!

Would love to give 5 stars....
I love the fit and softness, and functionality of these tops and own 5. I wear them almost everyday to work as a personal trainer. I would give them 5 stars, however when I got a hole in the arm of a new top and returned it to the store to see if anything could be done, the sales person said "That is a bummer". That was all that was done for me. I am hesitant to purchase more because of the ease of which they snag. I follow all washing and care instructions.

Love this top, but not for hiking
I hiked the Grand Canyon several months ago. I wore this top because the top of the canyon was 50 degrees and by the time I hiked to the bottom of the canyon, it was 80 degrees. The top was perfect, because it was light weight and very breathable.
Now my one complaint was that my bag pack stained the top.
I had my bag for over a year and it never stained any of my tops, so I could only assume that it was the top that was an issue. Either way I was very sad about the stain.
I went down to my local lululemon store and explained way happened to the sales associate. She told me that since the top was made to wick sweat off, that this could've been the reason for the stain.
Either way she was nice enough to let me exchange it for a new one. They did not have the same color as my original, but I was able to find one close to it.
I continue to use this top for runs and other workouts, but I no longer use it when I hike.
I am 5'7 and 155lbs. Lululemon size 8
Lululemon, thank you for the wonderful customer service.

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.
