flipping out for my FlipBelt Crops | Review

Disclaimer: I received FlipBelt Crops to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I have been running consistently for the past several years. One of my first purchases when going into my first half marathon training cycle was a FlipBelt. This was before I started using my Instagram account for running/workout accountability and WAY before I started blogging.

As my running distance increased, my need for more water and stuff lead me to use a hydration pack…and my FlipBelt was set aside.

Through the years, I have taken the FlipBelt out for shorter runs where I needed to keep something on me…a key, my phone, a snack or gum, or whatever. But I have found that many “belts” ride up to my waist and don’t stay at my hips…

With the option of trying and testing out the FlipBelt Crops pant as a BibRave Pro, I jumped at the chance! With the FlipBelt built into the waistband, I am very optimistic that I won’t have issues with the belt riding up!

flipping out for my FlipBelt | Review

Since it is Friday, I thought I would present the FlipBelt Crops as a Friday Five 🙂 I have been trying these pants for the past couple of weeks through my running (a 20-miler, easy miles, and interval runs), yoga at the gym, and many living room cardio workouts. Let’s dive in!

1 the style

Who couldn’t love a sleek black crop for running, hiking, walking, traveling, or whatever you have going on throughout the day?! The seam line accents are stylish and the material is soft and stretchy. The high waistband is flattering, even if you pack it with stuff..

2 the FlibBelt waistband

Clearly, the best reason to try these crops is the built in FlipBelt!

The FlipBelt Crops waistband is wide and can hold just about anything you would want to carry on your run.

Plus, no riding up! (the biggest win of them all!)

  • keys – it has an elastic strap and key loop to keep your keys safe and secure
  • phone – the pocket is wide enough for me to put my iPhoneX anywhere in the belt, even the back pocket
  • snacks – bars, gels, whatever you desire
  • gum – I always carry a pack or two of Run Gum on my run
  • ID, money or cards
  • water bottle – FlipBelt makes a thin water bottle that fits into the pocket of the belt

3 all of the pockets + hands free

The FlipBelt Crops has so much pocket space, you won’t be disappointed! There is a full, tube-like pocket around the entire waistband with a couple openings to grab and/or stash your valuables. With the addition of a zippered pocket on the back of the pant, you can stow away your most valuable items and know they will be there when you return home. I use the back pocket for my large phone and ID/cards. 

With the FlipBelt waistband, I don’t have the need to pack and carry an additional belt or holder for all of the things I carry with me on my run – because honestly, I usually forget it and have to hold things anyway. Major bummer… 

Running belt riding up or chafing from movement? Not anymore with the new FlipBelt Crops! Check out my review (discount code included)! #flipbeltbr #bibchat https://ctt.ec/4xd7r+

4 no fuss

One of my early concerns was “If I am packing the belt up with stuff, is it going to move and bounce around and possibly chafe?”   

Simple answer, no.   

I haven’t had any trouble with fire showers after my runs and workouts with the FlipBelt Crops packed with my usual phone, keys, ID, and snacks/gum. And as I mentioned before, with the FlipBelt built into the waistband, I haven’t experienced any riding up! Win!

5 the material deets

For running pants, I find that a polyester/spandex combo works best for me – also, it is a must that they are moisture wicking. Check out the product specs for the FlipBelt Crops below :

  • 76% Polyester 24% Spandex
  • Moisture wicking 
  • Anti microbial fabric
  • Rear zipper pocket
  • Internal key ring
  • Multiple front pocket openings
  • Large phone pockets
  • 3M reflective logo
  • Machine wash and dry

Overall

I really am enjoying testing the FlipBelt Crops! My one drawback is that the belt isn’t lined at all – especially the back pocket. While a simple plastic baggie can help keep my phone and ID from getting wet and sweaty, a plastic baggie isn’t always something I keep in my running bag…

Overall, I am very pleased with the features and construction of the pants. I look forward to being able to wear the FlipBelt Crops for my running adventures and everyday mom stuff!
