sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

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

Great for any outdoor adventure

I bought these for running, but the first time I used them was for a backpacking trip. They really helped with compression on my thighs. I have taken them on a long run and these will be my go too on big outdoor days

Great addition to the roster!

These half tights fit perfectly. Seems like Janji has their tights sizing running consistently now. I definitely had some trouble in the past ordering tights from different releases and the sizing not matching up well. I’m 6ft, 165lbs, and typically wear a medium in their apparel. These fit exactly like the groundwork tights - snug in all the right places so they don’t ride or slip, but not constrictive. These half tights have been great for longer runs in cooler spring weather or rainy days when shorts would get a little too saturated and start clinging. Looking forward to hitting some trails with them this summer! Only concern is there is not stitching at the bottom of the leg - seems like it might be a place where fraying could easily happen, but we will see.

Still the best

Love these half tights. The pocketing and storage is unbeatable. The new shorter length and key carabiner are really nice.

The previous version had an additional layer of fabric in the front that provided some extra coverage for modesty. That’s gone now and is missed as it was a really nice alternative to a liner. The new drawstrings are also a little too stretchy.

But those are minor nitpicks for otherwise excellent tights.

A comfortable summer alternative of groundwork tights

Although I am not a being fan of tights shorts , I tried this one purely due to plenty of pockets. This is one of the products which can hold my iPhone 13 Pro max and doesn’t bounce , so promise of no bouncing is absolutely true. I have had great experience in winters with ground work tights but I guess these shorts are tailored for summer and have thinner fabric that is required to keep you cool. I have not logged many miles in that though my initial impression is that it’s really a functional piece of running clothing especially during your runs in hot weather. Highly recommended of you want Janjis experience through a running tight short. The sizing is accurate and medium fits like a medium. Recommended and praise for this brand.

Half Tights, Full Comfort

I was nervous that my contour changes from isolation would make these less comfortable (got a medium). They fit great, have so many pockets, and have quickly become my go to bottoms for quick runs!

The perfect tight shorts

I have some big thighs, and can't wear shorts to run in or else I get serious chaffing.

These bad boys are the perfect tight shorts. Great compression, waist stays up even with cell phone in the side pockets, and can easily also stash my keys, lightweight vest, and multiple gels in the other pockets with everything staying in place and not messing up my run. I have put some serious miles into them and they keep on truckin.
