Ugh, I floated my theory about this earlier today but now I'm hearing it might actually be true. The Refresher is being tested as a possible Cool Racerback replacement. That would be terrible. The Cool Racerback is the item I own the most of at 58 tanks (I own zero Refreshers) and I know a ton of people who have way more than me. I really do not like the Refresher Racer - the racer part is too wide in the back (i.e., hot), I don't like the curved duck tale hem (doesn't look good hanging out underneath Scubas or pullovers), the thin front straps, the lower scoop in front. The fit is not nearly as universally flattering as the CRB. I think it's a nice change of pace from the CRB but no way it replaces the perfect fit of the Cool Racerback. I'd start sending in your feedback now to lululemon about the Cool Racerback if you don't want to see it go away.
Update: A topic thread was started on the Hey Lululemon site about replacing the Cool Racerback with the Refresher Racer. Please leave your feedback there, too, as well as here.
