Run: Swiftly Tech 1/2 Zip
the reviews were (unfortunately) right
I read a lot of the reviews of this product before purchasing it, and I was concerned by the number of reviews that mentioned the tendency of this fabric to snag. However, when I tried it on in the store, it was so cozy and flattering that I decided to give it a shot. I asked one of the store associates about the snagging, and she said she was not aware of any issues and that I could always return it if I did have a problem. Well, long story short...I wore this top once for a run (and loved how it felt while I was wearing it), but as soon as I took it off, I noticed a great big snag on the front. I certainly was not running through brambles, and I could not imagine what the fabric might have gotten caught on. So, back it goes (if they will take it back!). I would just keep it and live with the one snag, but I have a feeling that mysterious snags will continue to appear and could even turn into holes. Bummer!

Here is my issue with this top. I needed something for walking outdoors in the fall. I loved this top and have worn it a handful of times without yet washing it. However, the stitching is already starting to come off at the sleeves and it is quite obvious. I have been an avid Lulu supporter since its beginning and have to this day never had to return or throw anything away. Thats how good the quality in the past has always been. For an overpriced $88 top that does not even have pockets, I am feeling a big loss for my money.

Great Light top!
My favorite top from Lulu this year! So lightweight yet still keeps you warm. Would recommend to anyone. the heathered black is really more of a grey which i love because it goes with all my black lulu pants :) I'm 5'4 and 123lbs and a 4 is perfect for me

Another Run: Swiftly Classic
I should confess - I love Run:Swifty everything. Have the regular long sleeve, last year's turtleneck, a couple tanks, a tee...and now the half-zip. I've accumulated these over the last few years and have not noticed any change in quality. I love this fabric - soft, clingy, wicking, glorious. I wear a 6, and get the tops in a 6, but like so many other Lulu products, I could definitely size up if I wanted it to be looser. I got the maroon color, which is of course a heathered maroon like all Run: Swiftly colors (at least the dark ones) and I just love it. I haven't personally had any issues with snagging - one of my tanks has a small snag where my dog's nail caught on it, but I think with almost any similar fabric or knit that would happen. Love it! Recommend it! You'll live in it!

Played tennis in the sun and it wicked away my sweat. Ran in the morning chill and it kept me the perfect temp. It drys quickly too so I wasn't cold post-workout. Fits perfectly on top of a sports bra or form fitting tank. If you really want to layer up... go up a size.

I LOVE lululemon so much but typically cant afford it. So I always ask for gift cards on holidays and birthdays. I was so excited to buy this with the gift card. Its really cute, and does a great job at keeping me warm during chilly outdoor runs. However after just one wash the shirt started to snag. Im getting concerned with the quality of some of my recent purchases that I would consider a splurge, not lasting as long as some of my old navy attire. I think this shirt wont last more than a few more washes, and Im disappointed because of the price.
I could only give one star, but it really does have the potential for 5.

Don't be fooled
by the lightness of fabric. I thought it would not be enough on a chilly 50 degree morning, but it did the trick! Comfortable and flattering always work for me. I love the 1/2 zips. Wish it came in more colors!!

This is a great pullover. It is soft and comfy, yet breathable. You stay warm but it has venting so you don't get too hot. I'm giving this 4 stars because I wasn't a fan of how long the arms were. I can bunch them up a little and they're not uncomfortable, but a bit shorter and they would have worked better in my opinion.

this is amazing
tested this shirt out for the first time this am at harvard stadium. its amazing. i ran 2.5 miles in it and then climbed stairs, and i was the perfect temperature the whole time. its so comfy. its warm but also breathable. im 5'8 133 lbs and i got a size 6. its not skin tight but fits perfectly.
also..just when i thought this shirt couldnt get any better, i noticed if you roll up the bottom trim there are little sayings like "get your goals, do it now." PERFECT.
im about to order the bright pink. enough said.

My favourite top!
So happy to see this half-zip top again. I bought it a couple years ago and wear it all the time - I always get compliments. I love it as a layering piece now that the weather is getting cooler. I recently bought the Fluffin' Awesome Vest and they look great together! I hope more colors are coming soon!
