Transit Tech w/ C6 DWR finish
91% recycled polyester, 9% elastane

Garment made in Vietnam

Weight 130g / 4.6oz (M’s Medium)


Beginning in 2021, we reengineered our Transit Tech fabric to be made from recycled polyester instead of virgin poly, lowering the impact of this textile. We also increased the stretch and reduced the weight while we were at it to improve overall comfort and performance.

Transit Tech uses a short-chain C6 DWR finish that, while better than long-chain DWR applications, we recognize is not environmentally ideal as it is PFC-based. However, C6 DWR does provide the best performing and longest-lasting water repellency we have found so far on soft-shell fabrics. Because of this we have chosen to use it on select products while we continue to research PFC-free alternatives, like the water repellency used on our Zephyr Runner fabric.


Our Transit Tech fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Just What I Needed

I got these in Earth and feel like they're the perfect blend of technical short and casual short. I feel comfortable wearing them around town, but also wouldn't think twice about hiking in them. I haven't run in them yet, but could see them as great for trail running. I am able to fit a phone, wallet, and keys in them with no issues. They are a great addition to my summer wardrobe.

The internal drawstring isn't the best, but not a deal breaker. I was right on the bubble of getting a Medium instead of a Small (29" waist), so there's not much slack in the waist band and the drawstring gets lost in the waist band from time to time. I still think small was the better option for me, but they are a tad tighter than I would like. I personally really like the length of them, too. They're pretty short but that's what I prefer.

Overall, these are a great purchase and I'm happy with them!

Comfortable and perfect length

My husband loves these- they are his "dress up" shorts. They are a great length (not so long that they look like basketball shorts), and they feel appropriate for wearing around town or into a restaurant in the summer. Light weight, comfortable fabric, he has them in two different colors.

Excellent quality and fit

Comfy enough for running but I wear them for gym as well. Good length. Great choice if you want linerless and pockets!

Amazing update

I also have the Midnight TT Shorts from last year, and these feel better than ever. I love the new zipper(s) and design. I usually pair these shorts with the Rainrunner when it's pouring and they feel great while keeping my phone dry. They are also sleek enough to run errands with and perfect for any summer outing.

These shorts are super comfortable, fit is great and they offer plenty of coverage for a variety of adventures. I plan to take them not only hiking/running, but also on some river trips and bouldering/scrambling.

Great with one issue

I purchased these shorts and loved them so much I went back and got the pants version as well. They are lightweight, fit well, and have great pockets. My one big issue is that they stain the second you get anything on them and the stains won’t come out even after multiple washes. After only a couple weeks I have large stains on both the shorts and the pants. These would be 5 stars without that one issue.

Need better colors. Fit is great.

I really like the fit and quality. I would just like Janji to expand with more colors that I actually like. More neutral/traditional colors would be nice. I don't really like the crazy designs.

Great shorts, more colors would be nice...

Very comfortable, fabric doesn't seem to wrinkle much. Would give them 4 1/2 starts if that were an option.

Two requests...

1) another small pocket would be nice. If the phone is in the one pocket, nothing else fits.
2) More basic color choices... black, navy, etc. Would like to load up on these, but the only color I like is obsidian.

Thanks for the helpful feedback, Chris!
