Metal Vent Tech Long Sleeve
Warning, this shirt has been redesigned!
I purchased this shirt as a birthday gift for a male member of my family who has 4 of these shirts. I purchased his regular size and it is much smaller around the body and in the neck. He can't go any larger as it is the XXL, sooo disappointed that this shirt no longer fits him ... the old one was perfect! It was also Lululemons's loosest fitting shirt, now there is nothing for him.

sz 4 woman loves it in sz S
I got this to use as an oversized lightweight pullover for spring/summer. First time wearing today to/from hot yoga & really love it! I'm 5'4" 35,25,35 so it is very loose but sooo comfy! I love that it fits over my flowy lulu tops (right now wearing over the heat the street onesie) & I don't have to wash after every wear since loose in the armpit area (silverescent doesn't really work for me 100%). I also love that I can easily roll/push up the sleeves if wearing around the house (not possible w the girl version - have to fold those up & it's kind of a process). Last - I'll be able to easily use as maternity wear - ha! It is super delicate of course but I knew that already - I have a few of the swiftly women pieces & just treat them w utmost care - wash by hand & hang dry. I've seen so many reviews of folks complaining about this fabric snagging in the wash. Honestly you should know already that it's delicate & don't buy unless willing to wash by hand. Oh it also stops at my hips (so not hangy looking) & is slightly fitted in the chest when I stand up straight w a real bra on.

This shirt has a awesome fit. It is long enough in the body, that it doesn't ride up when doing squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, or any other exercises. It also looks really good, and can easily be pulled off as an around town shirt, without looking too sporty. I'm buying another one right now.

Love this shirt, only one complaint...
Ok, so I love this shirt - I have it in two colours and would love it in a few more. I wear them for going about daily tasks, and they're great for a workout or sweat session.
My only complain lies in the sleeve length. I have three other long sleeve shirts from lululemon, all smalls, and the sleeves all have thumb holes, which I like. The sleeves on the metal vent tech shirts are an ok length if it were not for the thumb holes. If I want to use the thumb holes, the sleeves are about an inch too short. Using the thumb holes puts a lot of stretch on the sleeves.
Great product, love the fit through the chest and the length through the torso, just add an extra inch to the sleeves!

fabric way too long, does not fit average height
I bought this shirt and the length of the shirt went down to my knees. Not too sure why the company wasted fabric on it when Im a 5 foot 9 individual. I finally got it hemmed by lulu and they hemmed it way shorter then it was pinned. It does not even fall past my belt line now. usually buy these frequently but never again.

don't like the thumbhole
I really loved the last version of this tech shirt, but the thumbholes on the new version need to go. They make the shirt less comfortable and in my mind less attractive.

It's not quite the same
I love the fabric and functionality of this shirt. I have a bunch of the older models without the thumbholes. I do like the idea of thumbholes, so I thought I'd give the shirt a try but it is just weird. It looks like a moth ate my shirt or a rip in the sleeve. Just having open thumbholes in a shirt doesn't seem right. My sweat sessions 1/2 zips and hoodies have "hidden" thumbholes which I think solves the problem that these shirts have. Please Lulu, update tall metal vent tech long sleeves with hidden thumbholes, so you can satisfy both parties of your customers!

Good for really sweat activities
As an athlete (figure skater)I love skating in those long sleeves shirts( i have three of those).The first thing I like that even i always sweat a lot on the ice,the shirt doesn't show that my armpits are sweating so I'm not afraid to have more movements with my arms up.The second thing a like that the fabric is so amazing and the shirt is light,which makes my movements on the ice easier,because I don't feel any pressure from my shirt.The last thing I like that it fits really nice and looks good and i can wear this shirt on my official practices (I'm going to Us Championship) and all i can say-I love it.

I love the shirt, however; a week after I bought it, there was a small thread coming out of the right sleeve. It's not a huge deal but for a 74 dollar shirt I expected a little more.

I got this top for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it, mainly because he said it's comfortable. He wears medium standard t-shirts, 5'10" weighing 145lbs and I got him a medium. It is loose on him, how he prefers, but I presume a small would have also worked. He especially likes having a shirt with thumbholes.
