Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Scoop *Tie-Dye
great addition to the Swiftly line of tops!
This is a really great top, just like the rest of my Swiftly tops (I own the original Long Sleeve, the new Crew Long Sleeve, the original Short Sleeve, the new Crew Short Sleeve, the V Neck Short Sleeve, the Scoop Short Sleeve, the Scoop Long sleeve, and lastly the Half Zip Long Sleeve - that's a lot of Swiftly tops!). It's great to have a variety of styles available to choose from for different purposes, changing up the look, and for the different seasons. They're great on their own, as well as for layering, and work well under a Forme Jacket, Scuba Hoodie, Rulu top, etc, or over a tank.
My first Scoop Long Sleeve was the gorgeous Space Dye Heathered Jewelled Magenta and I absolutely love it, the fit, style and colour are perfect! I then added the White one and the Tonka Stripe Heathered Cadet Blue to my collection! The Scoop Long Sleeve fits the same as the rest of my Swiftly tops, and I get them all in a size 4, (5'2", approx 120 pounds, 32E TaTaTamer size, 24"waist, 37"butt, if that helps). I've been lucky so far with all of my Swiftly tops to not have any problems with pulls, etc. I wash mine with other Lulu items, inside out, and air dry on my drying rack, which all seem to keep them in good condition.
Lululemon, I hope to see more of these tops soon! I'd love to get the Heathered Black (there aren't any left in my size), a Space Dye Heathered Light/Medium Gray(I think there was one in this colour but missed it), and another White one (none left in my size), plus more gorgeous colours like purples, corals, pinks, teals and blues please!

Perfect winter running top
I have this top in the heathered black and the heathered opal. These were perfect for a long hike on a cool fall day and will be great for winter running, layered under my running jacket. These tops are so cozy and great for sweat wicking. I was nervous that the heathered opal would be see-through when I ordered it online, but was very happy to discover that it is not!

Love, but want more colors
This shirt is really nice and very comfortable and soft! Even though it is very thin it does keep you warm and is a great layering piece. I have been wanting to buy more for the past two months but they have no color options-or sizing. The ones on the website now that are available are very limited. Please make some more colors! I would buy a few..

This top is perfect for runs when it is cold and it keeps you warm while your not doing anything but is cool enough so you don't overheat while running. It enables plenty of ventilation and i love how it never smells. The fabric is beautiful and soft and is the perfect fit for me, it is ample length on the bottom and on the sleeves, the arm holes keep your hands toasty and they are my favourite feature. This top is also great for layering in winter and has a nice neckline. I would definitely like more colours in this as it is my favourite long sleeve top ever.

LOVE these shirts!!
These are my favorite run swiftlys because of the scoop neck. Lulu please keep making more colors! It's so much nicer running and/or in gym classes to have the neck more open like the swiftly tanks. I wash them in lingerie bags (and hang to dry) and haven't had any snagging or holes. They keep their exact shape too. Great purchase!

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.
