A bit big

I ordered a size large. I was going by the waist measurments on the site. I should have gone with a medium, especially when I put my phone into the back zip pocket. The shorts tend to slide down my waist. Otherwise love the shorts.

So Lightweight!

As per Janji, excellent quality as usual. Very lightweight & breathable, that these have that ‘barely there’ feeling. Orchid color is an excellent option if one dares…and I dared! Fun running shorts all the way around.

Best shorts I own - hands down

Truly the best shorts I currently own. They fit perfectly - no other running/exercise shorts compare.

Great, but weird size difference

The shorts look great and the material is perfect for running. That said, I purchased both the Earth and Midnight colors in the same size (L), and the Earth pair are too big, but the Midnight pair fit great.

Might just be a fluke, but it seems like the waistband for the Earth pair arrived stretched out… Love the brand, but a bit disappointing.

Amazing Shorts

These are my first pair of workout/running shorts that cost more than $10-$20 ever. I can say there a huge difference! These shirts are super comfortable and glow nicely with every movement. They dry exceptionally fast when they get wet and overall have completely changed my stance on getting better quality gear. You get what you pay for, and these shirts are 100% worth it.

Sizing is spot on. At 5’7/180lbs I went with the large and it fits perfectly. The waistband is awesome and so are the pockets. I ordered a second pair immediately.

Great job!

I'm a woman and I love these shorts too!

Woman here! I bought these men's shorts because Janji's shorts for women all have a 3" inseam and I was looking for 5" (please work on that, Janji!). The good news, though, is that these are absolutely my new favorite shorts for running and everything else. The material feels so amazingly light and silky, but also somehow stays in place and doesn't chafe on long runs. Love the waistband, love the colors, love the fit. I usually wear a medium in women's shorts and bought the same size for these, and they're just right.

Great material and fit

Very similar fit to other running shorts, such as Patagonia Strider 5". The fabric is very nice- soft, flexible, and durable. My only criticism is that it needs more pockets.

Great shorts!

These shorts are great. The liner is comfortable and chafe free. The key pocket is a nice feature. And I find the external draw strings easy to use. The shorts are light and breathable.
