sustainability

The first rule to making something sustainable? Build it to last. This short is built to endure the rigors of serious wear. We removed zippers, because they will inevitably fail. We made it out of our AFO-Vent fabric — a durable nylon that is lightweight yet tough, abrasion resistant, odor resistant and will retain its shape. We changed the drawcord to an infinity loop that will not get tugged out in the wash and we reinforced the pocket openings with 14 bar tacks.

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

Nice thin fits well and super light weight.

These are one of the best running shorts I ever owned. There thin, light weight and fits well. The thing is that it runs a little on the small side.

Best running shorts!

Unreal how comfortable, light, and well-made these shorts are. I've had a hard time finding the right running shorts for the past couple years and I have officially been won over. Order another pair as soon as these arrived just to have double.

Needs to come in black

Huge improvement over the old 6" with the "infinity loop". Still the same amount of storage as the old shorts but the fit is slimmed down and the draw string is actually functional, which works perfectly for me. If you are between sizes, size up.

The split provides tons of ventilation and doesn't reveal the inner side of the thighs when in motion. Unfortunately, it takes away the everyday-ability that the 6" had or the current 7" counterpart has. That said, it is an amazing dedicated running short, one of the best Janji have produced. It just needs to come in black for the sweat that comes with a long day!

Great fit

I don't often opt for split shorts, but these really work for me as I like the coverage (length) and all the carry options for back country runs.

Amazing

Exactly what I was looking for. 4” is perfect. Better than I was expecting. The pockets and lining are incredible. At first I was disappointed black wasn’t an option. Now I wish more colors were available.

Trail Shorts Done Right

Been wearing the 7" Multi for about a year or so, and I thought those were great. These new 4" Multis are even better. Delete on the side pockets, but still more than enough storage, back to the brief liner and a regular drawstring to replace the infinity loop. Y'all did these shorts right. Couldn't ask for more, except maybe black...They are about to be my go to shorts!

Best Janji Shorts to date!

I have been wearing Janji shorts for over 6 years now with all different styles and materials - these are hands down my favorite for fast trail racing. The waist band is secure and has an extended liner that fits snug but without putting pressure. The generous side split allows for full range of motion and also allows for more air flow under the short which is great for releasing heat. The material drys quick. Best shorts!

Great pair of shorts

I prefer running in split shorts but was looking for something a little longer than the normal 2-3". These meet exactly what I was looking for. The storage is also great. The material is very lightweight. I do a lot of trail running and these will be perfect for those long summer days in the mountains. My only complaint is they run a bit small. Just a little tighter than expected around the waist. But they fit close enough to where I'd probably regret getting the next size up. I'd definitely buy another pair.

Amazing! As my friend would say: game changer!

These shorts are perfect for me! They fit so well! The waist sits nicely, briefs are comfortable, and the waistband has plenty of space (you can fit there more than essentials). The materials used are so breathable and lightweight that you can't feel them at all! No matter the pace, weather, or terrain you feel fast and light! Best trail running shorts you can possibly find on the market so far!

Nice shorts but....

The price was fantastic, the amount of pockets is fabulous, the size of the pockets is tremendous, overall I am very pleased with the shorts. The only thing that prevents me from giving them 5 stars is the overall comfort. I have several pair of shorts from Janji and always the liner inside is just a bit uncomfortable. I'm not sure how to describe it but it just seems a bit lacking in the comfort zone. I would purchase them again and recommend them, but can't give them a 5 star pop.
