I always struggled with how to bring all my essentials with me while running. I’m not too keen on holding my phone while running; I like to have my hands free. But I like to take my phone because I hate listening to myself breathing while I run. And in case anything happens, it makes me feel better to have my phone on me. Also I don’t want to leave my house unlocked so I have to bring a house key with me. But I don’t want to carry all of this. Enter the FlipBelt running crops.
I first got a FlipBelt (actual belt) two years ago and I used it everyday on my runs; I love it. But then I found myself digging through laundry to find it. Then I got the opportunity to test the FlipBelt Crop Pants with an integrated waistband. I was so excited to try these out, because I love my FlipBelt (I just kept losing it in the laundry basket).
The waistband belt area is perfect for holding your essentials you take running with you. Or your essentials when you run errands and don’t want to bring your purse (credit card, ID, phone, etc.). These pants combine your running pants with the FlipBelt, so you have one less item to worry about washing or packing.
My phone never gets sweaty when it’s in the waistband. It’s also really easy and convenient to tuck the phone in and grab it out. There’s a small clip to hook your key to so it sits securely in your FlipBelt and doesn’t fall out.
Why I Love My FlipBelt Crops
I love the FlipBelt crops because they have a convenient integrated waistband belt area to hold phone/keys/other running essentials. Some people take their ID or credit card with them, but I don’t really see the need to bring those running. Whatever you take with you, they don’t get wet from your sweat. It’s really convenient to tuck my phone in and grab it out – for reference I have an iPhone 6 and I have no problem with it. I have heard from a few other people who have larger phones that they were able to get them to fit, but they had to maneuver them a little.
These pants are also great for traveling. I pretty much live in yoga/workout pants so I love to travel in them. They offer a convenient way to carry around your belongings in a safe way. Your valuable items will be under your clothes so they won’t be seen and they’ll be attached to your body.
Quality of the FlipBelt Crops
These pants are great quality. The fit was great and they didn’t fall down while I was running. I love that the material is thick enough or absorbent enough to keep my belongings in the belt dry. But they don’t feel very thick on! They are extremely comfortable and soft!
There is a small clip to hook your key to so it is secure in your FlipBelt and doesn’t fall out. It’s a nice addition to ensure your house key doesn’t fall out.
These held up really well in the wash. I’ve washed them many times already, and they continue to feel as good as when I first got them.
I highly recommend these pants (and maybe a FlipBelt running belt too)! Be sure to shop them all here!
