Run: Swiftly Tech V Neck
Wonderful everyday top
Love this top for everything! Cute capped sleeves that don't restrict motion. Super soft and able to wick away and keep me cool in humid Hawaii.

Just what I was looking for!
I've been been waiting for a V-neck version of this shirt for a long time. Performs just as well as the crew neck version, so if you're like me and don't enjoy snug fabric near your neck this is the shirt for you. The V isn't too deep either!
Also, no chaffing so far. Haven't tested it for longer runs yet. The crew neck never chaffed me on long runs, so I'm assuming it'll be the same experience with the V-neck.

Ordered this top online and received it today thrown on the driveway like it was a newspaper. The package was soaked in rain since it was raining outside. I would not have even noticed it if I did not know what the packaging looks like. Just wanted buyers to be ware of this. Also I ordered the top in red and however I wouldn?t not call what I received red it was an orange with a hint of red.

Excellent for long days in the hot sun
I normally don't buy V-necks, ever, but the power purple only came in V-neck, so that's what I got.
Looks/fit. I'm 5'10", ~165 lb, and the 12 fit perfectly. Not too loose, not too tight. It falls to below mid-hip on me, plenty of coverage for my long torso. I love the power purple, and it looked great with the subtle striping and design. The way the power purple stripes look on the model was accurate. I don't like the looks of most of the solid-color swiftlies, so I was glad the power purple had the striping. The V-neck looked surprisingly nice, with its low cut and its not too V-ish V - almost more like a scoopneck.
Performance. I only run in tanks (in summer/spring/fall) or long sleeves (in winter), so I knew I wouldn't be running in this - I'd planned to use it as a casual summer top. But what it turned out to be great for was doing fieldwork in the hot, sweaty Midwestern summer (I'm a geologist). I reached for this top again and again this summer, and it was perfect for 10-hour days in the hot sun - it didn't smell no matter how much I sweated (which was a lot), it didn't show sweat stains, it didn't ride up, it didn't cling to or chafe my sweaty body, it kept me as cool as possible in the heat, it held up to long hours of wear without pilling or snagging (a surprise since it's so thin - and I wear it a LOT), and it looked reasonably professional and not especially like workout wear. What a pleasant surprise.
Care. I wash it in cold water and hang it to dry, and in a hour or less it's completely dry. I can wash it at night in my hotel room sink and wear it in the field again the next day. Wonderful. You can't do that with a T-shirt, which is what I used to wear in the field!
In summary, a winner for me. I hope more non-pastel, non-neon colors will appear - I could definitely use a few more of these for summer fieldwork!

I bought this shirt in May in aqua. Was pleased to see it in V-neck, as I have other run swiftly shirts that I love. After wearing it I found I did prefer the regular run swiftly for running. This was not my problem however. After washing it on delicate inside out and hanging it to dry white spots appeared on the front and back of it. It was washed with all my other lulu stuff and was the only item that came out with spots. Not sure why this happened to this particular shirt - was/is it a problem with that particular dye? I had only worn it a few times! Needless to say I was very disappointed.

Love this top, please make it in plum too!
I prefer the v-neck swiftly to the regular short sleeve. The fit is more flattering, and the fit in the arms is much better (I find the regular swiftly a little tight and uncomfortable in the armpits).
I have it in power purple and very green (I think), but I recently picked up the black in the same size and found it fits a bit tighter. I would size up in black, the other 2 I have are TTS.
The swiftly's do snag easily, I wash delicate and hang to dry.

I was excited for this shirt so when I put it on for the first time to go for a run I spent the first 10 min pulling it down as it kept riding up. I ended up taking it off as it was distracting. I bought a 4 and I am a size 4-6. I have a 4 the the run swiftly regular neck and I love it. Disappointing. Thought I had a winner. It's useless to me now..

Love this top, but sizing a little wonky!
I love this top! I have several crew necks swiftlys but the Vneck is my new fave. I just purchased 4 new V-necks and I have note of caution...2 of the new tops I kept in a size 8 and 2 I kept in a size 10 and I really can't tell them apart. The sizing is very inconsistent. I am nearly always an 8 in lulu. I would suggest ordering both sizes and choosing based on each individual top.

I am so happy they made this top in a V-neck! This shirt is incredibly comfortable and is very breathable. It is great to wear on a hot day because it keeps me cool.

Love this t-shirt
I bought the Swiftly Tech V Neck in purple and wore it so much that I went back to buy a second one in pink. Both colours look great and the fit is perfect (true to size 8). It's a great shirt for hot yoga and for hot weather in general. Very breathable. It's not a "rugged" material so I wouldn't recommended it for hiking or contact sports.
