Garment made in Vietnam

Beginning in 2021, we reengineered our Transit Tech fabric to be made from recycled polyester instead of virgin poly, lowering the impact of this textile. We also increased the stretch and reduced the weight while we were at it to improve overall comfort and performance.

Transit Tech uses a PFC-free C0 DWR finish

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

Love these shorts, especially for hiking

I've only had these shorts for about a week now but they've become my favorite pair! I love them for relaxing/lounging given how stretchy and comfortable these shorts are. I took them out for a hike/climb and they performed really well as I travelled through thick brush and scrambled up rocks. Despite snagging my shorts on various things all day, they didn't tear and appeared resistant to abrasion - and I really put them through the ringer. The zippered pockets are a great touch, so I never had to worry about my phone falling out.

The DWR coating seemed to hold up well on my hike as I went through some wet brush, but this was also the first wear so not sure how long it'll hold up for. It was also a hot day (80* in the PNW) but I never felt like the shorts were making me hot and they felt very breathable.

The only thing I would complain about is length - I generally like slightly longer shorts (by 1-2") for more coverage. Pretty minor, since everything else about these shorts is perfect.

Go-to hiking shorts, good for running too

Took a chance on these shorts, not having tried Janji previously. Absolutely love them. Light, perfect length, great pockets (with zippers!). Small pocket for keys or nutrition. Hand pockets are big enough to use for a phone (in casual use) and sewn into shorts so won't bang around. Immediately bought another pair, and can't wait to use them for an upcoming trip to CO trail running and hiking. Only gripe is the waistband tie is too short and therefore useless. Also the earth color is a bit mustard-like.

I love these shorts. Different material, substantial yet light. Very good quality. I have one problem though. I'm right between a medium and a large. They'd be perfect in every way if there was a medium and a half option!

These are incredible.

I am a huge fan of these shorts. I already owned two pairs of TT shorts in their previous iterations which I love. I was skeptical of the changes to this year's version, but these are incredible. The best update in my opinion is the change to the pocket configuration. This new style mirrors the TT pants which I also own. These are definitely worth the purchase. As an aside, I saw some of the other reviews asking for more basic color options. To me one of the things that sets Janji apart from other sports wear brands is the dedication to bringing bold and striking patterns to runners. I sincerely hope that doesn't change. The world needs more bold not more boring.

Just What I Needed

I got these in Earth and feel like they're the perfect blend of technical short and casual short. I feel comfortable wearing them around town, but also wouldn't think twice about hiking in them. I haven't run in them yet, but could see them as great for trail running. I am able to fit a phone, wallet, and keys in them with no issues. They are a great addition to my summer wardrobe.

The internal drawstring isn't the best, but not a deal breaker. I was right on the bubble of getting a Medium instead of a Small (29" waist), so there's not much slack in the waist band and the drawstring gets lost in the waist band from time to time. I still think small was the better option for me, but they are a tad tighter than I would like. I personally really like the length of them, too. They're pretty short but that's what I prefer.

Overall, these are a great purchase and I'm happy with them!

Comfortable and perfect length

My husband loves these- they are his "dress up" shorts. They are a great length (not so long that they look like basketball shorts), and they feel appropriate for wearing around town or into a restaurant in the summer. Light weight, comfortable fabric, he has them in two different colors.

Excellent quality and fit

Comfy enough for running but I wear them for gym as well. Good length. Great choice if you want linerless and pockets!

Amazing update

I also have the Midnight TT Shorts from last year, and these feel better than ever. I love the new zipper(s) and design. I usually pair these shorts with the Rainrunner when it's pouring and they feel great while keeping my phone dry. They are also sleek enough to run errands with and perfect for any summer outing.

These shorts are super comfortable, fit is great and they offer plenty of coverage for a variety of adventures. I plan to take them not only hiking/running, but also on some river trips and bouldering/scrambling.
