Mother's Day Present to Myself - Circuit Tech Tank

I must have spent over an hour at Lululemon yesterday before I went home with the Circuit Tech Tank (show in middle). I tried on the new Wrap Strap Tank (very similar to old Wrap Tank except for thin shoulder straps), Hip Halter Tank (shown a few posts below), and a really cool cover up tunic made of lightweight circle mesh material. I'll post info about them as soon as I find photos to illustrate.

I spent a lot of time trying on the Race Tech, Circuit Tech, and Track Tech tops from Lululemon's running line. All of them are made of lightweight, stretchy, breathable Silversescent that is so lightweight it feels like you have nothing on. The only bad thing about this material is that it really showcases sweat in the darker colors.

The Race Tech is the top pictured on the left. I liked the Race Tech a lot, particularly the fact that it has a racer back and a drawstring to customize the length. The main reason I didn't get it is that I prefer a lower, more open neckline. I was looking for maximum cooling for hot weather spin classes and I like having an open neckline to help keep me cool.

I also like the Track Tech short sleeve top a lot. If you want more coverage but maximum breathability, the Track Tech is your best best.

I ended up getting the Circuit Tech because I love the racer back and open neckline. (It was also $20 cheaper than the Race Tech) I wore it to spin class this morning and it was great - so comfortable and cool.
