Run: Swiftly Tech 1/2 Zip
I love Lululemon--I have a closet full of their clothes. Needless to say, I have a lot of swiftly ls and swiftly ss tops, but I had yet to try the swiftly half zip. I had read the reviews about the material but decided to try it anyway. When my top arrived in the mail, it was super soft, cute and fit well--I was so excited I wore it right out of the package to my boot camp fitness class. Unfortunately, the reviews were right--by the time I was done with my class I had four (!) huge snags in my shirt. It wasn't even that crazy of a workout! It snagged with just the touch of a fingernail when I put it on, it snagged on the zipper of my inspire pants, it snagged when I took it off. Now I have an $88 shirt that I have worn once and is full of long threads. Lulu, this top is soft and it vents well, but those benefits are negated by the absurdly delicate nature of the fabric. No way should a work out shirt be made of this fabric. I think you should make this top from the same material other swiftlys are made out of--I've never had a problem with those!! Sorry to say, I wouldn't recommend this top for any activity other than casual use.

Don't spend your $
this shirt is soo disappointing!!!
I feel that lulu quality has greatly digressed the last couple of years or so. I own many lulu items but the last three have all snagged or something. This shirt hasn't even been worn over three hours or washed yet and it snagged. My last pants that cost over $100.00 pilled already and they have only been worn a handful of times and in the wash once.
Customer service replies on here say to go back and they stand behind its quality but returns are so hard to do at lulu. The one time I did - the staff were rude and I only managed them to do an exchange (that's with the new tags and everything still there).
I would stop shopping here but I like supporting Canadian franchise and My husband likes it.

So soft so scared
This top was on my wish list to order after having baby #3. I recently splurged and ordered it for myself. I love the color and love the feel of it. It is amazingly soft, comfortable, and flattering. I have only worn it a couple of hours (to and from the gym twice) and hand washed it in between. I noticed the seams by the zipper are already coming unraveled :( Lululemon said they would replace it no problem, which I love- but I am also disappointed in the quality of the item. If it is so easily prone to snags and tears Being worn casually, I can't imagine what would happen if I did my usual workouts in it- which are intense workouts. For reference I am 5'3" and 120lbs and ordered a size 6.

I own multiple swiftly tech tees and long sleeve and always love them! They are my go to! With that said, i wanted to try the 1/4 zip. After only one wash, (and i separately wash all Lulu and line dry) i got a snag in the material. I understand this is a delicate material, but i never had the issue with my others. Maybe the zipper? So i decided to see if they would exchange it at my Lulu store and stand behind the "quality" mantra but they would not exchange it for me. For as much lulu as i buy, practically my wardrobe, i am very disappointed. The "stand behind our quality" policy on here is a little misleading.

I loved this top. It's flattering, comfortable, and looks great on. I saw it, and on the spot purchased it. I don't like wearing things without washing them first, so I tossed this in the wash on gentle, and it came out with a significant tear in the center perforated panel. Totally not acceptable for a top that costs almost $100.

I LOVE this top and have pruchased it in many colors over the years. However, my heathered black one developed a run down the front of it. I am so worried it is going to rip completely that I hardly ever wear it anymore. I love the new fun colors that have come out, but I will refrain from purcahsing this top, along with all run swiftly tops, in the future. Disappointed, too expensive to only be able to wear it a few times!

I use this more throughout the day and not my workouts but it is amazing! Comfortable and a good length - hits at the hips.

I love this pullover, I wear it on my way to class and during warmups. I love the collar, thumbholes ect. I got it in nimbus stripe which is my favorite.

I have the swiftly tech 1/2 zip from a year or 2 ago and almost every color of the swiftly tech long sleeve and the sleeves all fit like a glove. The sleeves on this version are extremely wide so it fits loose and bunchy around my forearm and wrist. I thought it was a defect but my cousin purchased the same one and is having the same problem. Unfortunately I took the tags off before I realized this so I don't think they'll let me return it but I will definitely try.

LOVE this top!
I have two 1/2 zips from several years ago and have been waiting for them to come back. This top is perfect for me! I love the length, the fabric, and the reflective stripes! I layer it over a tank and under a jacket or vest. Great colors also. I bought the white and will order the other colors after payday!!!
