New What We Love

lululemon-in-flux cranberry
Love this color. The palette is looking a lot like last fall. Deepest Cranberry to Bumble Berry comparison here.

I love butterflies. I'm hoping for Trackers in this print.

Hmm, I wonder what butterfly texture is.

This is going to be a must have for me when the US gets it.

 Not snake prints again.

Yay, more bottoms to match my Fatigue Swiftlys with. I hope these come in crops, too.

A couple of photos of the new Dance to Yoga tank. Shown with Pleat to Street Skirts. Canadian lululemon stores are carrying the tank to a size 12 (only to a 10 on the website).

The $98 What the Sport Shorts. I saw these in the store yesterday. All the dots on them are little gold diamonds. They're cute but still not worth the $40 premium. Shown with the Cardio Squad Tank in the top photo.

Pack It Vest and Split Second Shorts. I tried the vest on yesterday. I liked it well enough but I don't know that I'd ever use one. I've owned a run vest in the past and ended up selling it. I thought the fit was a roomy TTS.

I tried on the Back Pack It Jacket and found it kind of weird. I liked the shape but the backpack straps and zipper are tucked in a pocket in the center of your upper back:

The last photo was with the jacket partially tucked in the pouch-y thing - I think I was doing it the right way but who knows. I gave up since it was taking too long. It wasn't a quick and obvious process.

The Why We Made This is interesting:

On brisk mornings, we love having a cozy layer for the first kilometre or two—but hate when we're stuck carrying it for the rest of our run. Enter this lightweight jacket. We made it with an interior backpack pocket, which lets us stash it out of the way once we've started to sweat.

I don't see a ton of people really needing the back pack function. If I'm going to be chilled enough to need this jacket for only a mile I'd rather just tough it out. This is the kind of jacket I would only wear as a wind layer and it would probably need to be in the 30s for me to break out something like this, otherwise I'm choosing a LS Swiftly or a Race with Grace Pullover if it's really cold. 

I guess if it's sprinkling I might choose this jacket but then I'm not making a backpack out of it. Though, if there is threat of rain, I guess you'd start off in the backpack mode.

I didn't care for the feel of the bulk of the straps/zipper on my upper back. I have a few older pullovers - Hills - and a run jacket, Sportif, that have zipper pockets in the small of my back and I much prefer to load up that area. However, I know lots of people run with Camelbaks so I'm sure you'd get used to it. The jacket is a lot shorter than the Miss Misty and the Angel Wing version is beautiful. I didn't think it was particularly roomy through the upper chest/arms and you might want to size up if you have larger shoulders/biceps or are busty, and plan on running in it.
