Our AFO fabric is composed of 88% recycled polyester. We use high-grade recycled polyester made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic like rPET (commonly found in single-use bottles and containers) to reduce the impact of our apparel without sacrificing on performance, durability or comfort.

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

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.

Great shorts

Nice pockets on liner for phone. A little tight on waist (32). Also would be better if waist strap was a little longer and sewed in so as not to pull out accidentally. I brought this for the extra storage . Material is very airy

Traverse... the GOAT of running shorts

The Traverse are my absolute favorite running shorts. The lining is extremely comfortable and there are pockets in all the right places. Whether it is a short jog around the neighborhood, a local race, or a some trails, these are my absolute go-to. I have been buying these for a couple years now and the quality is fantastic. Even with almost weekly washes, there has been no change in fit and comfort. Glad I made the change to Janji!

Soft, comfy, nice athletic fit

Really nice shorts. Definitely lightweight, quick dry, and stretchy. Two design improvements: 1) the hip pockets are too small for a large hand; it's even difficult to get a phone in/out 2) the compression shorts could be a little more snug for running. I'm using them for HIIT, Yoga, gym training, so they're great. I'd like a better compression for running.

Love the material, Janji's inconsistent sizing drives me mad

Overall, this short is great. The liner is above average and the lightweight AFO short material is outstanding. For me, the 7" length is the sweet spot with my build. I also love that Janji is not opinionated about which side you should carry your phone on, and as such, has media pockets on both legs in the liners.

The part that is still upsetting to me is that Janji sizing is inconsistent. As someone with a 30" waste, that implies size M in some bottoms and size S in others. Having had issues in the past with size S shorts, I ordered mediums (because medium transit tech pants I just go were perfect for me), I was frustrated that these Mediums are a little big. I should have gotten small.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback Daniel and apologies for the frustration around sizing. We recognize how critical the fit of performance apparel is, and we are working on reducing size discrepancy as much as possible. This is an ongoing dialogue between our team and our customers, which is why your feedback is so important.

Traverse Shorts

Great to wear for hiking or lifting. I like the fit and feel of the shorts and think they're great for lots of different activities. My only complaint is the tie strings are really thin and get knotted easily.
