Near perfect...

Love my 7” AFO Traverse Shorts. They are comfy and dry fast. The zippered pockets are keep my key secure and if to use them in a big city race, they would easily hold my I.D. and a card without worry. The phone pocket is a great idea, and functional, but it is not perfectly executed. The pocket itself is a little too low, so my phone is closer to my thigh than my hip. Being that low means it swings more. That is my small complaint —and probably will not stop me from picking up another pair.

These are seriously top shelf shorts. The colors are great (I got huckleberry)
I love the outter material: light, soft, airy; like there's nothing there. The hems are flat and invisible. Even the drawstring is weightless and unnoticeable even when cinched up. The zippers on the pockets are so light and tiny they disappear. The pockets, although they don't get in the way or interfere, are unnecessary for a strictly running short, but I can see them being a great gym, bum around, run, hike; basically anything short. I'm looking forward to trying them out on more runs and CrossFit. The compression liner is well made with flat seams that are unnoticeable and it breathes and wicks sweat really well.
I took them for a run this morning and they were great. The compression liner holds down well and did not climb up my thighs and the phone sleeve is a nice touch holding even my giant Galaxy Ultra 22 securely. The shorts are so light and airy they feel invisible. My only gripe is I prefer brief style liner over compression style.
I really like these shorts alot and the compression liner may grow on me, but c'mon Janji, make shorts with option for brief or compression liner. That goes for your other shorts too. And, while I'm making requests, make a middle short with 7" option.
But if you like compression liner, the Traverse is a solid short.

Comfortable

These are my first running shorts besides using 20-30 everyday UA shorts. I love the compression insert, the length is also great. I also had my phone in the compression pocket for 3 miles and had no issues. I don’t plan on using it as I have a running vest but useful to have. I hand washed it a few times, trying to avoid any wash wear as they are pretty expensive.

Great shorts!

Janji makes super comfy shorts! Literally - you will put them on and forget they are there. These run a little larger than the afo vents so maybe size down if you are borderline on size. Other than that - they are breathable, light, and dry super fast!

Definite change for the better

I was fanatical about my 3" Brooks running shorts for the last decade but on a 50 mile training run I had such wicked chafing on the liner that I decided to make a change. I bought four different highly recommended shorts from four vendors I never used before including Janji. I took my Janji's out for a 42 miler the day after I got them and was extremely impressed. First, no chafing and I didn't have to use any glide. Second, super duper lightweight which doesn't seem to be the case when you look at them. Downsides: it was a ridiculously hot day and so they were soaked by the 30k mark and did not dry so eventually they did become heavy and uncomfortable. Additionally, I wear a Naked band when I run but tried the first 10 miles with my stuff in the pockets and it just wasn't working for me so I took the band out of my pack and switched over. The pockets are great for normal walking around (keys, phone, etc) but I felt like too much jostle. But then again, I never used the pockets on any of my shorts when running so there you go...So that's about it for negatives. I bought a second pair so I could use them on at least one long day a week and will be sticking with them (hopefully for a long time). So far about 110 miles on Pair #1 and 12 on Pair #2 and all is well in Janji town.
