 #1 Life AsRX

Wodkilla shirt from Life AsRXIt’s no wonder this brand is leading the pack on our list, with 36,394 Facebook ‘Likes’ and 133,971 video views on their YouTube channel. They are going all out and RX’ing apparel sales for CrossFit.

Website Review: *****

We found their website to be one of the easiest to navigate, while still grabbing our attention. As soon as you land on their hompage you know exactly what they offer which is perfect for online searchers.

Product Review: ****

Life AsRX offers a wide variety of products and product categories, including: Tees, Tanks, Pants, Shorts, Kids Apparel, headgear, and more for both men and women. What was our favorite product?  The Wodkilla Flower Tank for women, and the Bacon is  Good for Me men’s shirt.

Our Overall Score: *****

#2 Reebok ()

We would have put this company as our number 1, but that compared to a start-up like Life AsRX we just couldn’t do it. However, Reebok’s CrossFit clothing come in a close second. Aquiring sponsorship of the CrossFit games in 2010 was a big move or Reebok and it has paid off over and over again. Reebok has designed a specific line for CrossFit athletes that is withstands performance and is easy on the eyes.CrossFit Shoes & Apparel

Website Review: *****

It is definitely apparent in the design of this site that Reebok is sponsoring the CrossFit Games and supports it’s athletes. It is very easy to use. Our favorite part of the site is it’s high quality pictures of Games athletes and available video.

Product Review: *****

While Reebok offers high quality performance wear for Games athletes, it seems to fall a little short in pricing of it’s products. With sports bras and shirts at higher costs than most other apparel companies. However, you get what you pay for, the sports bras, men’s clothing, socks, and more are perfect for your WOD and will last through any AMRAP. Not to mention you can even buy shirts and tanks that replicate your favorite games athletes clothing. Our favorites: The Women’s Skinny Printed Sports bra and the men’s Handstand Push Up’s Suck Shirt .

Overall Score: ****

 #3 HipFit

Screen Shot 2013-03-15 at 1.51.02 PMHipFit has exploded on the seen of CrossFit, you might have seen them at some of the local CrossFit competitions near Sacramento, their hometown. This small company was created so that CrossFit athletes wouldn’t have to wear glitter and skulls to every workout. Their personality is apparent in their products, website, and Facebook presence.

Website Review: ***

While this website is not as robust as Reebok or Life AsRX it is still fun and shows great personality. With playful comments in their About section like this one:

Welcome to the home of snark, wit, fun and occasional fitness. Jk, we actually love our fitness as much as we love ourselves :)

The brand is very active on Twitter, Facebook, and the popular Instagram. So give them a shout out!

Product Review: *****

We said they had personality, and yes you can definitely see it in their fun shirts, like the Ass Moves Mass Shirt, and This is Why I Squat . Don’t worry guys, you don’t have to wear a shirt with cute arrows pointing at your butt, check out the Every Day Bad Ass shirt. Did we mention their shirts average about $25.00 a pop. Not too shabby in comparison to other brands.

 

Overall Score: ***

#4 RokFit

If you frequent a CrossFit then you have probably seen one of the RokFit shirts strutting around. As an official vendor of the CrossFit games it’s no wonder their fans show the love on Facebook with over 14,000 ‘Likes’ on their fan page.

Website Review: ****

Their website is clean, easy to navigate, and we love the non-clutered look and feel. Great job to their developers. You will find your purchases are easy to make and checkout for on RokFit.

Product Review:  ***

 

Okay, we have been waiting to show off their new Trifecta shirt: Bacon, Coffee, Fitness.

As soon as we saw this it was in our shopping bag and on it’s way in the mail. While they might not have as many products as other brands, the quality and creativity is apparent throughout their products.

Overall Score ***

#5 SoRock Shop

Screen Shot 2013-03-15 at 2.06.22 PMThe SoRock Shop is one of our fav’s , not because their site is amazing, but they have heart. As CrossFitters and Athlete’s you will fall in love with this brand if you read how they started and see all the work they put into their company. They have certainly outgrown their spare bedroom shop and are exapanding. We expect great things from this little brand.

Website Review: **

In comparison to the larger apparel companies it is apparent that this is a much small company. The bright and colorful design might mimic the creative products, however proved to be overpowering for our users. However, it looks like most of the SoRock Shop’s attention has been put into Facebook with over 5,000 ‘Likes’ for the small business.

Product Review: ***

If you are looking for fun, bright, colored WOD Gear you have found the place. With fun and colorful tanks that have fun sayings you will never get bored. Plus, if you have something in mind for a shirt and need it printed, they can help! SoRock offers screen printing as well.

Overall Score: **
