Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Scoop *Tie-Dye
I never write reviews, but I felt I had to in this case. Despite the negative reviews, I bought this shirt anyway because I always had a great experience with the Run Swiftly Techs in the past. Some shirts I've had for years without a problem yet. I bought this shirt a few weeks ago thinking the weather was getting much cooler, but it has been in the 80s and I only have worn this shirt TWO--yes TWO--times AND washed it ONCE. Just this morning I went to put it on and lo and behold there is a hole in the bicep area. How on earth does a hole form in the bicep anyway?? I wash all my clothes on the delicate cycle, cold water, and hang to dry. I'm so disappointed that I didn't listen to the other reviews. Since it has been over 2 weeks since purchased, I cannot return it and I'm now stuck with a rag. I will NEVER buy this shirt EVER again. What a waste of money.

Sleeves to the knees
The soft material, the changing colours depending on the season, finally a scoop neck
I don't like:
The sleeve length varies depending on colour that season.
The material snags easily.
Overall very versatile and it keeps you warm but let's you breathe. The sleeve length is a bit of an issue, but nothing major.
I usually wear the long sleeve in public transport, as it gets quite cool due to a/c, and I always feel very comfy, not to hot not to cold.

LONG sleeves, tight fit.
The good: the color was beautiful (heathered ultra violet)! The bad: the sleeves were tight and way too long (I'm 5'2" so maybe that should've been somewhat expected). I have several colors of the Swiftly Tech short sleeve shirts and I can say for sure that the fabric of the long sleeve version that I got is not at stretchy as the fabric of the short sleeve shirts that I have. Take note that I specify "the long sleeve version THAT I GOT." I've been buying LLL shirts like crazy the past few months and something I've learned is that even though the fabric is supposed to be the same for most of the shirts that I've bought, there is so much variation in the texture, the stretch, the fit, the ability to hold its shape etc etc. In short, this is my review of the shirt that I received in September 2014, color is heathered ultra violet. Same shirt in a different color can be an entirely different story. 3 stars because although the shirt did not work for me, it would probably work for someone with longer arms (they may have to size up).

Extremely Dissatisfied Customer
Despite all the negative reviews, I still purchased this shirt expecting it to be as great as its description made it sound. Unfortunately, when I put it on for the first time today, there was already a very noticeable hole on the bicep. Since I had never tried the shirt on before, and I doubt a hole developed while it was sitting in the bag, I must have purchased a defective shirt.
What frustrates me even more was discovering that LLL has a 2 week return policy. I bought this LS shirt in the middle of July planning on wearing it when it cooled down. Although it is literally brand new, and I just removed the tags yesterday, I know my local store will not take it back. What a waste of money and an awful first experience!

I typically wear this shirt as a cover up to and from yoga and also when I'm warming up in the practice or laying in Savasana at the end.
I own both the short sleeve and long sleeve version of the shirt and equally love both.
My favourite thing is it isn't baggy and I feel it moves with me in my practice and I'm not worried about it flipping over my head in downward dog or cause other distractions.

Scared to wear
Purchased this yest at my local store and to my surprise it was on sale:) but I was sort of scared due to reviews about the snag situation, and your rediiculous return policy, it's sad when you almost don't want the sale incase something happens you cannot return it:( when I mentioned it to the sales girl she was firm about this being a running shirt strictly running,,, ironically when I was paying there was a snag in it:) so we grabbed another one hopefully that's not a sign of what's to come!!!

fabric snagged and had hole even b4 first wash
I bought the white color of this shirt in store, tried it on and loved the shape. I preceded to wear it out and didn't realize there was a small hole in the left upper arm just under my shoulder until a friend pointed it out. I couldn't believe it as I hadn't washed it and had only been wearing it for about an hour. For a $68 shirt I expected a lot more. The fabric is far too delicate to be running material as it shows wear even when worn casually.

I have debated over these tops for a long time.. I am very curvy by nature so ordered up from my usual size 8 in CRb to the 10. It fits nice.. maybe a little tight on my arms I plan on wearing it just as a weekend top around the house.. may have considered ordering up a size but I am sure the arms will stretch out!

Great shirt but disappointing
I loved this shirt and the turquoise color, however, I was very very disappointed after my second time wearing the shirt noticing numerous snags. paid full price for this shirt and expected better quality. As such I could not recommend it. Hope they come out with a better version great shirt.

Best running shirt ever
This is by far my favourite running shift. No matter how sweaty things get, this shirt does the job. I hope they keep coming out with new colours. A few of my older ones have a snag or two, but they would be at least 4-5 years old, to be expected. They keep their shape beautifully. Worth every dollar.
