HYLETE asked Ashley to take the invex II crop through her latest training as a fitness professional and fighter. This is what she had to say.

what do I think

The invex II crop is the perfect pant for the true female athlete. As a fitness professional and someone that lives in workout clothes, these are hands down my go to. I wear a small and they fit perfectly. Nice, smooth, and flat around the waist. Unlike most crops that I've worn, these do not ride up or scrunch up around the back of my knees, they stay nice and straight around my calves. Not only can I handle a full day of clients in these without having to fix or pull on my pants, but I can also tackle my workouts without any issues.

why do you need it

When I'm training hard, the last thing I want to worry about is my clothes. These crops are perfect, they don't ride up or fall down, and they are never see through! Hands down I have nothing negative to say about the invex II crop. I especially like the flat stitching for when I'm sparing. There is no rubbing or irritation, even when I've got my shin guards on over them.  

who would you recommend it to

I would recommend these to any female who is looking for a great fitting crop that won’t get in the way of their workouts. I can do anything in these;  cross-training, sparing, yoga and work all day. They stay up during runs and through countless rounds in the ring, and even pass the burpee test. They rock and you'll forget you're even wearing them!
