The detail of the fabric at the wrist is so beautiful. I was looking for a jacket for travel and to wear around town. I'm really happy with this.
Love the hood, very cute, fits correctly and I get tons of compliments!
Generally, I love this jacket. The shape and color is great and it works well for running. The only downside I see after having it a few weeks is the pockets are made out of thin material and are starting to shear after leaving my cell phone in there while walking around in the city. They are meant to carry lightweight items only it seems. Still glad I bought the jacket!
I picked up this jacket at Janji's home base before joining them and Aire Libre on a weeklong trip in Oaxaca, Mexico. It was the region's rainy season, so many days had rain in the afternoon forecast. Turns out we had beautiful weather the entire time, so I couldn't fully test the DWR on this jacket, but the temperatures were cooler than I expected and I was super thankful I had this packable jacket to whip out at the end of our trail runs. The stow-able hood was good in the mornings when it was cooler, too. Even with the longer coverage, I could still fit the packed up jacket in my hydration pack!
It was also perfect for the numerous flights it took to get to Oaxaca. Every time I deplaned, I warmed up and took it off; then every time I had cooled down again, I just unpacked it and threw it on. I also got tons of compliments on it the entire trip; the darker color is perfect for hiding any dirt or sweat (c'mon, we're all runners here!) but the red-orange accents are uniquely Janji.
Had to dock one star (sorry!) because the small bits of fabric that aren't DWR do absorb water pretty well. (I imagine they dry just as fast, though, but I wasn't paying attention.) Found this out after I had showered and my hair dripped onto the jacket; the DWR did its job there, though, as those sections of fabric stayed dry!
I'm 5'4" and got a size Small; I like wearing it with the waist cinched a bit so it's less baggy.
