Soft performance wear

Size Bought:
5' 8"

Soft fabric, loose fit. I am usually between a small and medium size for tops. I purchased a small and it fits loose which I prefer for a workout top. I also have a long torso and it is not too short.

Great fabric

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 4"

I was attracted to the lovely lavender color, but am now most impressed by the fabric. It's a stretchy, soft, and non-wrinkling poly blend that is light but thicker than less expensive tanks. It washes and dries looking new. The cut isn't skimpy and the higher neck provides coverage and a nice drape. It is true to size. Size L will accommodate a 36C or shirt size 10-12. If you want a roomier fit, size up.

Great Essential Tank!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this essential tank to be multi functional and use it for general work outs, climbing, hiking, backpacking, and as a casual everyday shirt. This tank has been great! I have used it for cardio and strength workouts, hiking, and an outdoor climbing trip in the middle of summer, and it has performed great! The fit is comfortable but relaxed, the tank looks nice enough to wear as a casual everyday shirt, the cut is comfortable for all of the activities I have used it for, and the material does a good job wicking sweat, while not becoming soaked or smelly. Overall I really enjoy this tank, and am excited to use it on many adventures in the future!

Please make more colors!

I have a difficult time finding tanks that fit me well, and this one does! It's very flattering for this middle-aged mom. It's true to size and isn't too tight or too loose. The arm holes are great. I am large busted and don't have weird gaps. The wider part on the bottom skims the hips and doesn't hug them--therefore, no emphasizing of a mom muffin! On top of all that, the material is wonderful and soft. Please make more of these, specially in solid colors!

My new favorite workout tank!

I just got my tank in rhubarb Heather and I love the color and fit. I have used it on hikes and to yoga. I really like the quality and very happy with it. :) I was tired of only wearing black clothing.

So comfortable - great for casual wear or workouts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tank is very comfortable to wear -- you don't even think about it being on, which is how clothing should be! I'm 5'10", 165 pounds, and am typically between a M/L or 8/10 and I got a medium in this tank. The lavender color is very pretty, but if I were to give some feedback: can there be more non-heathered colors I'd love to wear a tank like this to the office under a cardigan or blazer and be able to get in a lunchtime run, but the heathering makes it a little too casual to pull that off.
