Guest Fit Review: Fast As Light 2 In 1 Tank, Power Purple Swiftly Tech LS, New Camo Print Cool Racerback II, Speed Shorts, Rain For Daze Jacket and Pace Rival Tights

Huge thank you to reader Ms. A for providing photos while I'm away from the store on vacation and for providing first impression comments. 

"I was so excited for a bright red tank but I felt like a high school boy at a track meet. The tank and bra are sewn together" Unfortunately it sounds like the bra and tank cannot be worn as separates. Boo to the misleading name. 



Reader A notes that the camo print is a different vacation in Rain Jacket and Pace Rivals are a brighter version of the print than the Cool Racerback II and the SPeed shorts. 



You can see the speed shorts (duller) compared to the Pace Rivals (brighter). 

Power Purple Swiftly Tech LS



'New' Heathered Sapphire Swiftly Tech SS which looks to be the same color/material as last years Heathered Sapphire Swiftly Tech LS.

  1. LOL High School boy at a track meet, good one. What is your call on the Gravvy colour, is it just grey or is their a blue or purple undertone? The s/s Swiftly look shorter, do you think they shortened it? I like the purple camo on the CRB and Speeds vs the jacket, I don't care for the brighter red or whatever colour that is. As for the l/s Swiftly in power purple, no thanks not for $80. plus dollars.

    1. I was wondering the exact same thing about Greyvy. the name suggests grey, but it looks blue online. I agree I'm not a red fan either so I won't be spending money there. I'm actually boycotting spending anything now except for a few things i'm waiting for (long raincoat).

  2. I love love love the power purple swiftly but had to pass for the price. I also grabbed some pace rival crops in case they raise the price to 98$ I can decide within two weeks. They weren't marked up in store but for some reason I feel it coming

  4. Very calculating on their part to come out with true red lulu lovers have been asking so many years for and the blue sapphire swiftly which was so popular. They are really gunning for those sales now to get them through all this negativity over price hikes.

    1. Exactly what I was thinking. They can keep it. I'm not going to let myself be tempted by a colour like they hope we all will be. Like you say, it seems very calculated on their part, showing what a sneaky company they can be.

    2. Not a red I'm a fan of, it looks a little too on the orange side. I'm still holding out for a decent red!

    3. I actually snorted when I saw that color in the upload. My eyes rolled so hard it was audible.

    4. I literally said to two eds in store today.... "I hate that you guys put out these beautiful colors the same week as the price increase" to which one responded with a laugh and one word response "strategy"
      Lol not the sympathy I was looking for

    5. Also, I feel like reds ALWAYS look a little orangier in a photo than they do in person. In person it was really a true red not orange at all. It makes shopping online harder for reds

    6. 100% agree. they knew people will be upset and they launches all these beautiful new colors. like, shut up and pay. and guess what, a lot of people will pay and forget there was even a price increase. they will accept these prices as the new norm.

  5. The pics of the black/heathered sapphire blue swiftly look duller to me than the ones that were released last. I don't mean dull in a bad way as I like less saturated too. I'm curious if it really is a different shade, or if it's just how they look in the photos. (I already have the previous release.)

  6. I wonder what size Ms A wears in tops. Size 6 looks a little loose IMO . I'm liking Greyvy and True red, wonder if I should get my TTS or size down ?
