" Running" Luon - More tops in this, please!

The newest version of the Run: Hills Pullover comes in a "running" luon. I tried it on today and fell in love. It has a matte finish and is super soft - like a chamois. It's so soft you could make pajamas from this fabric. It felt very breathable and lightweight. I would love to see more long sleeve tops in this fabric. I like the Run: Hills Pullover style but think it is a bit too much shirt for my needs with all the body mapping and seaming. I would love to see a simpler long sleeve shirt, more like the Run: Sport Henley or the Run: Swiftly Tech, in the running luon fabric to use as a base layer for cold weather walks or as overlayer in a chilly gym.

Bought One - Gather Together Jacket Embossed Manifesto

Although I didn't need another jacket, I caved and ordered one of these today. I thought Free Shipping was ending but it looks like Lululemon has extended it indefinitely. I tried the Gather Together on today at the store and really, really liked it. The fit and look reminded me a lot of the Wear With All Jacket except the Gather Together is made of luon and the WWA is French Terry.  I'm 5'5" and the jacket came to below my rear. I have been looking for a long luon jacket in black similar to my Deep Navy Yohari and now I have found it.  It has nice big pockets to drop your sunglasses into (that is one of my peeves with the Shape jacket, my sunglasses won't fit in the exterior pocket) when you head indoors. It has a big ribbed cuff along the bottom that is very forgiving to those of us who don't have narrow hips like the model in the photo. It also has a two-way zipper for further ease of movement. The sleeves are extra long and have thumbholes. The best thing is that is looks great hanging open. I thought the fit was very forgiving and ran on the larger side.
