Push UR Limit Heathered Coal Wee Stripe + Try On Review of Free 2B Jacket, Pep Tank, Run: Like the Wind Singlet & Pullover

I bought the Heathered Coal Wee Stripe Push UR Limit today. As others have noted the luxtreme used in this version seems a bit thicker than the other versions (bubbilicious, passion, lavender). The pattern also helps hide the lumps and bumps that luxtreme seems to highlight. The tank looks nice with both coal and black pants. The back mesh panel is coal gray. Now I have to find the matching headband.

I also tried on the Free 2 Be Jacket. I liked it a lot. It seemed to fit like a loose fitting Remix Lulu Light. The collar is a bit open but that didn't bother me. The hood is large but not overly so like on the Exhale Jacket.
The length hits about the same spot as a Remix. This jacket is $98 and my store had it in solid black, passion, and gray. The colors weren't that exciting to me so I didn't feel compelled to get it. If you are in the market for a lightweight french terry jacket, you should consider this one. I think I will hold out hope for more Remix Lights.

I also tried on the Pep Tank. I liked it a lot. It seemed to fit loose through the midsection but felt very comfortable against the skin. I might consider it if comes in new colors. The pocket in back does not seem tall

 enough to hold an iPhone unless you turn it on its side.

I tried on the Run: Like the Wind Singlet and Pullover. I like the back of the Run: LTW Singlet but I hate the
flap in front. It just does nothing for me (or anyone I've seen photos of). It is $58 which seems steep for a top without a built in bra. The tank fit true to size.

I also tried on the Buzz Lightyear version of the Run: LTW pullover. The white one wan't bad at all but they
didn't have my size for me to try it on. If I find a photo of it, I'll post it. The pullover fit on the loose side but I hated the Buzz Lightyear color scheme. The zipper went almost down to my navel.

Hmmm. It doesn't seem all the different than the Clarity Vest. I don't care for the deep armholes and racerback style. I wish they'd come out with a luon vest or a running fleece vest. That, I would buy in a second.
