So this is the new *ENG versions of the Metal Techs which are out this spring. They apparently fit the same as the old style (I feel they updated the fit slightly, Ill have to compare). I was told by an educator that it is a new "engineering" method which has allowed them to reduce seams. This also allows them to product two toned or two coloured ones. I much prefer the non-heathered versions. I find the heathered versions wash out the colours. To be honest, almost ALL the blues look identical. It would be nice to have a solid black metal tech! I would also love to see more "camo" embossed.
I find these fit slightly slimmer in the shoulders compared to the old style. I will have to post a comparison of the two soon (as soon as I find the striped royal red).
I normally wear a 29/30 in bottoms and this fit well. I could of sized up to a 32 but it was too loose for my own liking. Plus once they get wet, I find they expand slightly and I don't want my swim shorts falling down around the beach/pool.
The colour was beautiful, I might pick these up this weekend. The added feature to the II version is the side pocket (which makes sense, just don't leave your phone and jump into water).
Now first, before you judge... I wanted some type of spring jacket for casual use.
I figured there wasn't going to be a mens Fatigue Camo jacket and tried this Rise&Shine.
After trying this jacket in a size 8, I think it looks fine on both women and men. The fit of this jacket is very loose throughout the body, does not hug a women's body (its quite boxy). Who says that a jacket made for women cannot be worn on a male. No need to write nasty comments or reference me as "every MAN" is buying this jacket on your blog. Get over it, I liked the fit and function of this jacket so I decided to purchase it. Im sure some of you have worn the opposite genders clothes.
Im not sure if any other guys purchased this jacket but If you did, let me know what you think. Im sure this jacket is sold out in all stores now. The prices on eBay range from $300-$500 now... Crazy!
Here is the Lululemon, Why We Made This...
WHY WE MADE THIS
We designed this jacket for mornings when the alarm goes off and we can hear nothing but rain. Water-resistant and seam-sealed, it keeps us dry while we warm up and has vents to keep us from getting overheated when we break a serious sweat. It gives us options for those liquid sunshine kinda days.

FIT + FUNCTION
designed for: run
fabric(s): Glyde Ultra,
This is definitely fatigue camo to the extreme. Paired with the Pace Breakers...
If you do a quick eBay search for "lululemon men camo"...
Looks like the power resellers are starting to scoop up mens products and selling them at an elevated price point. Not sure if any men are willing to pay this much over retail. Or are these eBayers targeting the women who purchase items for their husbands/boyfriends etc.
I refuse to pay over retail for a mens item... These shorts were $64
This backpack hasn't even been uploaded to the website. Its $128 in store but it can be yours for only $270. Well if you want this item, it should be up monday!
Basically, DO NOT BUY ELEVATED PRICED LULU ON EBAY!!!
Only way the sellers will stop, if no one pays over retail.
