I bought the ones in black:
I love that these little crops have 7 pockets! The big side pockets are very handy for weight lifting - they are the same pockets as my Power Vinyasa crops which I love. I usually carry my phone (iphone) with me at the gym which is too big for most of my built in pockets. But it definitely fits in the big side pockets of these. There are 4 little gel pockets on the waistband and a back zipper pocket as well on these crops. I don't need that many pockets really, but it is still nice to have.
I also don't mind the silicone grip on the sides. Not too sure if they actually work since I wore them for the first time tonight with a cool racerback which doesn't usually ride up anyways. So I must test it out with a No Limit tank or something later.
These crops are a little bit hard to put on though. The waistband is not as flexible as other Lulu luxtreme crops. But once you pull them up, they fit tighter and stay in place better than other luxtreme crops I own. Usually, my luxtreme crops kind of slide down a little until I warm up then it sticks to sweat and stays in place. But these stayed in place from the get go. I really love that.
Another thing I really love is of course the length of these crops which hit right below the knee. They are actually longer in the front than the back so the front covers the knee cap and the back ends right at the leg bend. The length is perfect for me. What I didn't notice when I tried them on in store is that the front leg opening part has silicone grip as well, so they stay in place even better.
Anyway, I am really glad I was able to get these especially at the price that they went on sale for. If you are in need of a pair of running crops, I would definitely highly recommend these.
