5K Crate Product Review

Disclaimer: I received a box from 5K Crate 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’ve always loved the idea of subscription boxes.  No matter what your interest may be (quilting, make-up, clothes, gaming, running), subscription boxes are a fun way to go to guarantee trying something new, or discovering a product you may have not known about otherwise.

5K Crate is a quarterly subscription box that “curates premium apparel and accessories for runners of all types and fitness levels. Each box is carefully hand curated to include 5-6 items that you will use over and over again. We do not want to be just another box full of snacks and gels!”  (Love the personalized note that was inserted in my box!)

The box I received contained:

  • 1 Mission Vaporactive Running Shirt ($25)
  • 1 Mission Hydroactive Cooling Towel ($19.99)
  • 1 pair of Spigen Wireless Bluetooth Headphones ($49.99)
  • 1 pair of Zensah Compression Socks ($14.99)
  • 2 Epic Full-Size Body Wipes ($3 each)
  • 3 La Fresh Travel Sunscreen Samples

Who doesn’t love getting such a menagerie of goodies?!  I know I do!  Every single one of these items is of high quality and absolutely something I can use.  I took the body wipes and sunscreen on my trip this past weekend when I ran my half marathon, and the cooling towel helped me out on some very warmish runs I had.

I can’t praise this company enough.  I feel the products that you get are well worth the subscription price, not to mention… again… everything is usable!!  Their next box is set to be sent out October 16th, and rumor has it that there is Momentum Jewelry in it, saying “Be Awesome Today.”  See?  Totally worth it!

I did not receive any financial compensation for this review and all opinions rendered are my own. If you would like to see some other reviews on 5K Crate, please check out what some of my BRP friends have to say:

Have you ever tried a subscription box before?  Go ahead, don’t be shy… tell me your experience!

      The cost is $59.99 with free shipping quarterly. But if you sign up for a year, there’s a bit of a reduction which takes it down to about $51 per box. But you can see they easily send you $100 or more worth of stuff. 😁

    I’ve never had a subscription box for myself (although I do have two on my gift list) but I did get my dad one for his birthday a few years ago. I danced and pranced around our house saying how I had picked out the *BEST* gift for him EVER. Annoying everyone since I wouldn’t tell them what it was exactly. But I was right – he LOVED it!! A 3-month subscription to a cheese of the month club haha. He was in heaven!

      Oh yeah… cheese, wine, beer subscriptions! I forgot about those! They’re great for gifts indeed! I once belonged to a makeup subscription. I loved it!! Always such fun goodies!! 😁

        My parents did get a wine one after the cheese since they enjoyed the cheese one so much!! I have a snack and makeup one on my gift list (two different companies lol)

    The thing I really like about the Target beauty box is you just buy which boxes you want, so it’s not a subscription box. I like the flexibility of that. I’ve bought so many of them by now, I always get an email from Target when the boxes come out (I think it’s about 4 times a year).
