Groundwork Knit
68% nylon, 32% spandex

Garment made in Vietnam

Weight 128g / 4.5oz (M’s Medium)


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.

Very comfortable when running long distance.

The greatest running shorts ever made

FINALLY, I have found the ULTIMATE RUNNING SHORTS! They are great for long runs, with so many pockets. And the shorts wick really nice. I am definitely going to buy another pair, maybe even two more. Good-bye Lululemon, it was nice knowing you. I am Team Janji FOREVER.

No chafe through the black canyon 100k

a bit of squirrel nut butts at 4am (not as exciting as it sounds) and then was able to race all day and well into the night with zero chafe issues. very nice.

These are it!!

These are the absolute best half-tights I've ever run in. The fit is spot on with sizing. I have thighs that are a bit on the thick side and most half-tights can feel like they're cutting off circulation, but these gently hug the body and feel amazing for miles and miles. They are my designated long run bottoms

I feel so fast in these. They are super comfortable and fit really well, they are slightly loose on my legs but I think that just means I need to hit the weights. I just wish there was a little more padding in the front so that I won’t get arrested if I run near a school.

Pockets, fit, style... just fantastic shorts

I bought my first pair of these (midnight) for the sleek styling and compression. The pocketing turned these into my most-loved, most-worn shorts. The pass-through pocket on the back is great for a long-sleeve shirt, but it really shines as a zero-bounce iPhone pocket. I've since gotten the lavender and pine colors. I also appreciate the gender-inclusive marketing.

Does what it should

One of the few half tights that can go the distance. Biggest reasons include lack of seams and external drawstring. Pockets are great. Curious to see hire they hold up.
