I am always on the hunt for a great pair of running crops. I literally scour the racks at every single store I go to, looking for the softest and flattest seams possible. TMI time- I’ve had a problem with chafe recently and I was REALLY sick of it.
Enter the FlipBelt crops. I received a pair as part of being a BibRave Pro and I am so thankful that I did. As soon as I opened the package I was so impressed by how soft these crops were. I put them on right away and haven’t wanted to take them off since. As soon as I put them on it was like I wasn’t wearing anything. Not only are these crops super soft, but also they’re as light as air.
Some other awesome features of the FlipBelt crops include:
-76% Polyester 24% Spandex
-Anti microbial fabric
-Rear zipper pocket
-Internal key ring
-Multiple front pocket openings
-Large phone pockets
-3M reflective logo
-Machine wash and dry
I wore them a couple of times without anything in the felt portion just to get a feel of how they felt/worked for me. I was so excited to do 9 miles in them right out of the box without any type of discomfort or chafe. After a few more short runs in them with my phone in the back pocket and key clipped to the ring, I decided to try them out for the Rhode Races Newport half marathon. I was a little nervous to transition them to race day since I’m pretty particular about my kit, but I took the plunge.
For race day I had my phone in the back, car key, and a FlipBelt 11oz water bottle. Statically, the crops felt great. I was used to how a regular FlipBelt felt and the crops felt just as good and secure. However, as soon as I started to run the waistband started to fall. I normally wear a Large in any type of tight, which is what I got for these crops. These crops are extremely soft and stretchy, so I feel like I might have had more success with the water bottle addition if I had a Medium instead.
Despite them slipping a bit on race day, I’m so excited to have these in my arsenal especially for shorter runs where I don’t necessarily need water. I would highly suggest getting a pair, however think about sizing down if you plan on carrying a lot (phone, keys, water bottle, etc) in the many pockets just so you don’t get slippage.
