FlipBelt Crops - In One Word - AMAZING.

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

You may have heard of the Flipbelt before.  In fact, this belt which is a loop that fits perfectly around your waist when you're active, was my first ever running belt!  I loved it.  My phone, my keys, my money and my ID fit so nicely in the waistband; it was the only thing I needed to keep my valuables secure when I was running.   

However, fast forward a few more years, and Flipbelt has outdone themselves. When the reviews are THIS good, I was absolutely ecstatic to try the NEW FlipBelt crops! 

"Just got my running crops.....AMAZING!!!! Fit is perfect, material is great......I absolutely LOVE   them!" 
"These running tights are amazing! I wish I had them 5 years ago when I started running again!       Everyone should buy a pair!"

These multi-functional crops are truly amazing.  What makes them so unique is the waistband.  It's brilliant actually; two products in one.  A pair of crops AND the Flipbelt!   From the moment I unwrapped them, I knew they were going to be my favorite pair that I own.  And, honestly, I love them so much I almost didn't want to sweat in them.  They are perfect as a comfortable everyday crop as well!

My Iphone6 fits comfortable!  HINT:  I even have a PopSocket on the back! 

The material of these crops is a polyester-spandex blend, but I was especially excited about the details that make these crops so special.  Maybe it's just me, but I love that the bottom, which sits about mid-calf, is tapered and skinnier.  What that means is there is absolutely NO riding up!   I have other crops that start out tight at the bottom, but inevitably within minutes I'm adjusting and pulling them back down.

There is also a special clip for your keys which tucks nicely into the belt while running or doing other exercise.  Overall, they are perfect for storing your race day essentials!

Over the past month, I have done a variety of different exercises in them; from running, to strength training and even dancing.  You can see from the video below just how well these crops do with any type of exercise!

Running is my passion!  I have been pleasantly surprised by how well these crops perform on runs.  I have run shorter tempo runs as well as longer runs; up to 9 miles.  Most recently, I ran 6 miles in the early morning hours with little light.  Safety is a concern for me when I run in the dark, so I carry my Iphone6, and mace.  My valuables can be safely and securely stowed away in the waistband. You can't even see them in the photo below and there is NO chaffing or slipping!

These are the silkiest and by far the most comfortable pair of 3/4 tights that I own.  My only regret is that they are not in different colors because I would be ordering more!  If you must have a pair for yourself.... and you MUST;  make sure to use BIBRAVE at checkout for 25% off your very own pair!! 


  1. Great review! I told my daughter that i didn't think my iPhone would fit with the PopSocket but you proved me wrong. Impressive!

  2. I also own a pair of Flipbelt crops and they really are quite unique. They look really cool with some colour coordinated tops or bras. There are plenty of different variety sports bras on They come in all sorts of colours and sizes so anyone can find a model that matches their specifications.
