I was very pleased with the fit... not too loose, nor too big, yet flattering and comes in attractive colors (I got the watermelon and the blue). It has interesting design details that make it look cool (zippers, seamlines, rivet hole). The only thing I wondered about was why the bottom hemline seemed to have some elastic in it and was encased in a yellow band (on the inside of the shirt). The elastic was very subtle and not tight; in fact it hangs loose on me, but it's still there to a certain extent.
This is my new favorite shirt, and I'm ordering another color. It's lightweight, just snug enough, and it has an loose elastic band along the bottom/waist. The length is perfect, falling around the hip. In short, I will always race in this top and will usually train in it!

Great shirt, but be careful on the sizing. I have a 44 inch chest, and would wear the XL according to the size chart. I ordered that and it was huge, nearly down to my knees and the armpits were way low. Exchanged for a Large and that was much better!
This is my favorite tank to work out in. It is slightly roomier that other tanks, which I prefer. It is long and has a band at the bottom that keeps it in place. It is very lightweight and comfortable.
Very small with very thin back
I bought this for long distance running. The color, weight, wicking, and length are all great. The shirt runs small for its sizing, especially in the bust, so I needed to return it for a large. The shirt is just right in the length: short enough to wear outside shorts when it's hot, but long enough to tuck in if I want.
Besides the sizing, I was disappointed to find that the back of the shirt is not as wide as pictured. This is a problem for me since I needed the extra width as pictured for adding our team name. Also, I find that narrow racer backs tend to have backs that sag on the sides, which is not very nice looking.
My biggest concern is that this shirt has binding around the sleeves that ends just a bit posterior to the underarm area. I am afraid the bump where the binding ends may chafe during long, wet runs. I would have preferred to have that fabric bump be on a more neutral zone, such as at the top of the shoulder or even in the back where it won't rub against skin during arm swings.
The color is FABULOUS!! I think it will make me very fast!

Didn't work for me
Briefly, about me: 5'6", 120#, run 5x/weekly
I bought this tank because I wanted a training tank/singlet for warmer days, and I liked the features on this one. (small zip pocket on the side, namely). While I wanted to love it, I'm going to return it instead. Biggest issue was fit: I measured myself with tape measure to figure out sizing, and I fell between a small and a medium, so I opted for medium. Though I am average height with a normal length torso, the shirt was much too long for me: the top of the shirt started half way down my sports bra, and the bottom literally covered my backside and the elasticized band at the bottom of the tank fell at the top of my thighs. It was alternately tight and loose in places, and the back seemed narrower than the picture on the model appeared, so most of my sports bra was showing. Although I never tested it in warm weather, the fabric did seem heavy, despite the mesh panels. I doubt it would have felt cooler than most of my running tshirts do. This shirt might fit a woman with an unusually long torso, but definitely didn't fit me!
No. 1 Singlet
So silky-soft. So comfortable. So stylish. Yes, it is long but I like that feature; doesn't ride up. And the pocket - the pocket is practical. You can actually fit something in it unlike most so-called pockets on workout apparel. I use it for my MP3 player which makes it easier during my workouts. I have wireless headphones so the hole in front of the shoulder is obsolete to me at this time. Now I don't have to wear an armband (which is not comfortable during upper body workouts) or hang my MP3 player around my neck. I can't wait for additional colors in this singlet. I was loyal to another company for their singlets but I think RRS just won me over.

Perfect tank! I want more!
I love this shirt. I prefer racer backs for running and working out at the gym. This is the perfect top. It's slim to the body, but still loose so it's extremely comfortable. I like that there's no built in sports bra so I can pair it with whatever type of support I need for that activity. I have it in the watermelon color and love the way it looks. I can't say enough great things about this shirt - great for outdoor runs on hot days, but stays in place and is cool at the gym, too.The only con - can NEVER seem to find my size in the store or online.

Great race shirt!
I bought this shirt to wear for my first half marathon and it was just what I was looking for! Race day was the first time I wore it and I had no regrets. The built in pocket was perfect for my ID, credit card, cash and holding my ipod shuffle pre-race. While I didn't utilize it since my ipod clips to my shirt, there is also a headphone cord hole inside the pocket to lace your headphones inside the shirt and out the shoulder hole.
I didn't even notice the shirt the whole race. the grippy parts at the bottom kept it in place and I experienced no riding up or chafing. I highly recommend it for races or just daily running!

Love it, but runs large
I use this top for running or weight lifting at the gym. I'm 5' 3", 115 lb. and bought a small based on the size chart. I think an XS would have been better, as it's pretty baggy. I don't mind, but a size smaller would probably be more flattering. During my sprint workouts, it slowly starts to slide up my hips.
Overall, though, I love this top. It's stylish, comfortable and handy...with a stash pocket for music/energy gel, and a hole in the shoulder strap for headphones, a nice touch.
I would buy again.
LOVE THIS TOP!
Great comfort, light, pocket and music port a PLUS! I handwash mine, and line dry. It dries very quickly. Plum color is great. Perfect for summer running. Just be careful with anything Velcro, like a fuel belt, etc..it will snag on the material and cause 'pulls'. I like the this top stays in place with a slightly textured bottom edge/doesn't ride up at all, and I never notice items in the pocket..doesn't seem to 'bounce'. Will buy another! 5'2" 108lbs, small fits the way I like it, not 'painted on',a little breathing room.
Great running top
Nice, lightweight running top.
Used for long runs. Love the style and color.
Very happy with the product.
Longer than expected
I didn't like this at all and ended up returning it. It was longer than I expected and completely covered my hips and rear end. It was so long that it fell on my upper thighs. I could have lived with that but it had a skid resistant band on the bottom to keep it in place, which made it feel bulky and didn't allow it to move well. I appreciate that they cut this for someone who has a little more on the hips than the standard hips that are often assumed when creating clothes for runners, but overall it just wasn't quite right.
Favorite running tank
This is my favorite running tank. Perfect for wearing by itself in summer or layering under warmer shirts in colder weather. I LOVE that I can put my iPod nano into the zip pocket and have cord control that feeds it up through my shirt. I like that the shirt has longer length and a band along the bottom to keep it staying put so it doesn't ride up. Soft and comfortable.....I have it in 6 colors!

Perfect running shirt
My favorite running top. Love the small zip pocket. Super comfortable, does not ride-up, and you stay cool because of the wicking fabric and racerback design. I am usually between a size small and medium, 5' 4", 120 lbs, average build, and the small fits perfect. The medium felt a little big, but if you want a looser fit medium might be your choice.
Cool Addition to the Summer Gear
I needed a singlet for my morning summer, humid runs. This top provides adequate coverage while keeping me cool with it's lightweight, wicking fabric. The pocket provides a little extra storage for long run gear. It has a "gripping" band at the bottom that I thought would be constricting, but it helps keep the top in place while I run. I am 5'6" and 150 pounds and the medium is a perfect fit. I appreciate the cool coverage.
Great addition to my workout wardrobe!
I purchased this style in the spring in the mint green and loved it so I bought the purple one for the fall. It fits a bit more snug in the mid section but is still really comfortable. Great pocket (finally - a pocket that holds something!) and very comfortable. I love the dark purple color. I use it at the gym, for yoga, and for an 8.4 mile hike in 95 degree weather today.
Love this tank!
I like this top so much I bought four of them! The colors are nice, but I bought all white so they go with all of my shorts. I've worn it year round (in Michigan)on my runs. It is perfect in summer and my go-to base-layer in winter. Love how the top stays put in summer. For some reason it rides up while running in winter when I where it under my wool and half-zips.
Will be buying more!
This is my first time purchasing a singlet and I love this singlet. It is comfortable, a great length, and versatile enough to run outdoors or in the gym. I enjoy my tops a little loose and it is perfect, not too snug and not too baggy. I really like having the pocket, which can be used for an iPod or to carry a key, money or an extra gel.
Need more colors!!
I have two of these amazing tanks! They are on the longer side, are loose around my mid-section (I don't like skin-tight tops) and have a spot for your headphones. The last one I ordered was an awesome sky-blue color, but for some reason the size was way off and ran much larger than the other two I own, even though they were the same size. I want more of these!!!
My go to singlet
This is my go to singlet for most of my runs and races, mainly because it has a small zip pocket which is hard to find in singlets. The pocket is big enough to fit an ipod nano, a bunch of salt pills and tissue if needed.
Fit wise, it's great, as it's flattering for females, but not super tight that I have to worry about not so flattering bulges. It also doesn't chafe which is a must.
The only thing I wish were different is that the material be a bit more technical - it's a little on the heavier side of my other singlets, and if you're sweating a lot, it tends to hold onto the sweat and get heavy and I start to feel clammy.
San Mateo, CA
Love this top! It fits great, just snug enough, but not too much. It's long enough that it covers the top of my running capris, and doesn't ride up while running or lifting weights at the gym. Very feminine look also, with nice colors. I now own three of these because I love them so much!
Love this tank!
I love this tank so much I now own it in 3 colors. My favorite feature is the pocket on the side - I use it for my iPhone, but it's a great place for gu, a snack, id/money or whatever else you need to carry. I like how the bottom is sort of texturized to not ride up too.
Wore this for running in the heat. The pocket is nice and I used it for a car key as I use an arm band for my phone. It did start to ride up a little and I had to pull it down twice during a 12 mile run--not bad in my opinion. The small fit perfect- I'm 5ft2in and 112lbs. It's a loose fit and not snug.

Works well as a base layer
I bought this on sale, stocking up for the return of warmer weather. I ended up wearing it under a light jacket on a cool and rainy morning jog, and it was a great base layer. The description doesn't mention that it has a band at the bottom that is slightly grippy. Provides just enough friction to keep the tank from creeping up inside my jacket like other tanks have done. But not visually noticable. Genius.
Love this singlet
I love these singlets. They fit great, though they are a bit long for my 5'4" frame. I would have rated them 5 stars if they were an inch or two shorter. Love the zippered pocket. My iphone fits perfectly and there are holes to string the earphones through. Lots of great colors as well.
Best Running Tank Ever!!!
I love this tank. It is so lightweight and breathable. It doesn't hold any moisture. It is so comfortable you want to live in it. I'm so happy that I got to ditch the armband for my ipod since I was getting a terrible tan line from it. Exercise clothes just don't get any better than this!

Feel great fabric tank
Bought this for running but love it so much I wore to play tennis in. So far, no chafing. Cute style also. Got compliments. Love the feel of the fabric and the fit - it has shape but is not tight. Wish more colors were available for summer.
Love this and bummed it's going going gone.
I've been running my longer runs in this top for a couple years because of the pocket (a nano fits perfectly) and the earbud cable goes through a hole in the back- SO convenient and hassle free. Thread that cord down the back of your bra, through the hole and voila! Plus the cut is non-binding and non-chafing, the slight bit of elasticity in the hem keeps it in place. The fabric is light but isn't too thin.
I had to buy 2 more because-and this is CRAZY- it appears it's being discontinued!?! With as many favorable reviews, why?
I'll try to keep the 5 I have lasting as long as possible.
perfect fit and length
I tested this singlet on a 13 mile run. It was very comfortable, didn't scratch in the armpits, and the right length to cover most of my bum. The only con is that the color bled a little onto my white hydration backpack.
