Uh oh, I am in trouble. I have a fatal weakness for the Heathered Coal Wee Stripe and Static Patterns and now it looks like a lot of the new stuff is based on these colors. It is also a lot of grays and blacks which I love.
I don't know what the one on the left is but it looks a lot like Static. The one on the left is Static Charcoal. I love that both tanks are two-tone.
This summer's Push UR Limits in Heathered Coal Wee Stripe (come and gone already)

Stride II Jacket in Static Coal Large Static Wave Stripe
Knock Out Short in Heathered Coal Wee Stripe
Boogie Shorts showing the new patterns - Static Charcoal, Static Classic Sport Gray, Heathered Coal Wee Stripe, Static Coal Horizon? Stripe with Electric Orange, Citron, Cool and ? Blue
All these grays and black reminds me of the quilted pattern from a few years ago:

I was curious as to the weight difference between the three most lightweight, breathable tanks lululemon makes - the Run: Swiftly Racerback, the Circle Mesh CRB, and the Run: Energy SL. These are my favorite tops for hot weather workouts. I suspected the Run: Swiftly would be the lightest and I was right - my size 12 weighed 2.3 oz. The Circle Mesh CRB, also in a 12, weighed 3.2 oz. The Run: Energy SL in a size 10 weighed in at 4 oz. However, the Energy is not nearly a streamlined tank as the other two. It has a cinchcord and the extra gathering down the back. I did a ranking of the coolest fabrics a little over a month ago and you can find that post here.
I also wore my new Run: Zoom Knee Shorts to spin. I had bought the Biker Groove shorts when they first came out and these are very similar except in luxtreme instead of luon. I prefer luxtreme for spin class because of the wicking and usually wear luxtreme crops. The Zoom Knee shorts were very comfortable. I didn't have problems with them riding up even though there is no gripper elastic on the inside of the opening. I think the shorts are so long that it's not really a problem. There are still quite a few on loot so if you are looking for a longer luxtreme short (or a really short crop), these are great. I'm 5'5" and once I sat on the bike the shorts rode a couple of inches above my knee. When I am standing they fit similar to the model in the photo above.
