Lined up along the top of the straps. I was surprised the CRB II is a bit wider. The CRB I is Boom Juice.

I wore the CRB II to bootcamp this morning. I have to say I did like the more open back in terms of cooling. I wore it with a Strap It Like It's Hot Bra underneath so my back was a mess of straps. It's my favorite workout bra so the strap situation is usually messy-looking no matter what tank I wear over it. I often wear tanks with more open backs for workouts so the change in this tank isn't a big deal for me in terms of exposure. As for everything else, I didn't find the performance noticeably different from the CRB I - it's very comfortable and stayed in place nicely. The difference in length wasn't that noticeable to me and I like the slightly higher neckline. The thicker seaming at the back of the neck was a non-starter, I didn't even notice it. I don't know if I'll go on a big collecting binge with these since they're more of an athletic piece rather than a casual one but if a nice print or color comes along I'll probably get it. Anyone try it yet? What did you think?

Canadian Olympic Wear Uploaded This Morning














Canadian Olympic fan gear hit the website this morning. The US Men also have some volleyball fan but none of it is logoed like Canada's. I like the Swiftly and Metal Vent pieces the best.

Buckets of Fun Bag next to my Diversity Bag. The sizes are very similar. The cinch stays closed but I didn't see a water bottle pocket in the bag. I liked it but I can live without it.

True Red Fast As Light Tank and Circuit Breaker Skirt. True Red looked pretty close to Love Red to me. I need to remember to get a comparison of the two. I tried this tank on today and really liked it.  The mesh wasn't as see through as I thought. The bra was like a more supportive Energy Bra and the tank is very breathable. My only nit was the chest in the outer shell was a bit small for me. If the tank comes in a compelling color or print I might get it.
