First Wearing Review - Circle Mesh SE Cool Racerback & Run: Zoom Knee Short
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.
