Got these tights and could not feel more ready to bust out some long runs this winter. The material is super comfortable and the amount of storage in these things is honestly impressive. Large drop in pockets on both thighs, a large passthrough pocket on the back waist plus smaller internal pockets inside the front waist, these are going to be perfect for long runs in the cold where you have. your keys, ID, phone, a credit card, and maybe a few gels. The passthrough pocket is great to have for shedding an extra top layer once you warm up and carrying it behind you. The double lining on the front is great for a little extra warmth and modesty in your private regions. My only criticism is that ordering based off the measurements in the size chart (I'm 5'8 ~150lbs, ordered a size M) I found that the waist feels like it starts to sag a bit in the back if you don't really pull them up tight around your rear. A tight knot on the drawstring should hopefully be good enough to prevent any embarrassing events, but it can still be a little distracting. Overall great tight that feels great and is really innovative in an area where men's running clothing has been lacking.
These things are the bees knees! Why are most men's tights pocketless?!?! Not these bad boys, they’re fully loaded with storage options that TRANSFORMS cold weather running. For reference, I average 80+ miles a week, weigh 135, 5’10” and wear size small. Smalls are snug, mediums would likely work but be a little roomier. The snug fit is perfect for loading down the tights with weight and not having any bounce. I can pack a jacket, phone, keys, snacks, gloves and arm warmers with room to spare. That eliminates the need for additional storage on most of my runs. Soft material that is very warm and stretchy, no movement restriction even with the snug fit. I’ve only worn a few times but they’ll get plenty of use once the weather fully shifts. Finally, a tight that does it all! Janji has never let me down with their design features and this is no exception. Please keep the sweetness coming!!!
Every year I look for the unicorn of cold weather running wear: tights that don't have ankle zippers. You're reading that right. I don't want zippers. In 20+ years of running, I've had expensive brands and specialty brands, fuzzy zipper flappy things, etc and after a honeymoon lasting a few months, every one eventually bunches up oddly or digs into my lower legs or ankles, mostly for runs more than 12-15 miles. Thanks Janji for doing the right thing by my ankles and NOT putting in zippers! (apologies to those with unusually big feet, those that have a shoe-removal disability, or that really need the 8" of ankle ventilation that the zippers provide - you will find plenty of choices).
Besides being ankle-friendly - these have lots of useful storage without looking like some built in fanny pack has been grafted on, (or those awkward attached over-shorts), and come in a color other than black for a little variety. If they hold up, it looks to be a winning design to me.
Looking forward to wearing them out this winter!
Did I mention they don't have ankle zippers?
Awesome mens running tight & the color astral are excellent. I bought a pair last in size ‘M’ and it was slightly larger than medium. This time I bought size ‘S’ and it slightly smaller than small. Both running tights are excellent and fun to run in. Sizing is a little inconsistent, but that seems to be industry-wide regarding running apparel.
Don't know what to say, this is by far the best running tights I ever owned.
