Fabric Callout


High-performance, moisture-wicking stretch nylon with durable support. Explore more behind our tights and sports bra fabric.



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.

Love these.

Love all the pockets. I’m now abandoning all tights without serious pockets. These are not compression tights like some. Good fit however. Appreciate some color options instead of all black at most places. Recommended.

Best winter running tights

These tights fit great with the right amount of compression, storage, and provide the right amount of warmth. I have run in them in temps from 28-40 degrees and they are perfect. No need for additional layers. Good to have color options other than black for men’s running tights. One small complaint is that the drawstring is a bit short.

Great tights

I’ve had other Janji tights that didn’t fit right but I gave the company another shot after these tights rolled out, and I’m so glad I did. These fit great, stay in place on long runs, are warm, great color, and quite affordable. After I ran in my first pair I immediately bought more as they will probably sell out. I like them better than my tights form lululemon that are in the 140 range.

R2R2R tights

These tights were a last minute purchase for my [****] run/hike I was about to go on. I needed something that would keep me warm in the morning and evening but wouldn't overheat me in the afternoon and these were perfect for just that. They took a beating but did a great job throughout the entire day. I also loved all the variations of pockets available. This is a great piece of gear if you need storage for a long run with or without an additional pack.

Great fall/winter tights

The fabric is very comfortable and the fit is great. One minor problem is that the waist can be pulled down after some time (probably when I put my phone in the pocket). Other than that this is a great pair of tights.

an absolute workhorse.

These are my new go-to tights...
At first I was concerned about the lack of zipper at the bottom but its turned out to be an incredible benefit to not having it there. The opening stays fit flush to the leg and easily fits over socks. There is no weird bunching or rubbing from a zipper. The pockets on this are FOR REAL. They hold everything from phones to nutrition, but what I've been using them for (and successfully might I add) is to hold a soft flask of water. These are a versatile workhorse that have function and utility for days. The sustainability and humanitarian efforts that Janji focus on paired with the quality of these tights make this purchase a no brainer... and one im going to make again in the near future.

Will I ever wear another pair of tights again? Probably not.

These are seriously the most comfortable running tights I have ever had. The fabric is soft, is just the right thickness for chilly days, and has the perfect amount of stretch without being too stretchy. And as someone who does a majority of my running in the dark I am grateful for the reflective details. The best part though, hands down, are all the pockets! Six pockets! Since they arrived, I haven’t reached for any other tights.

Awesome Fit

Among the several running tights I’ve purchased from Janji the past couple years, this current model seems to be the best fitting; not too small, not too big. Pocket storage is amazing and looks like they will accommodate many items. I tend to carry a minimal amount of items but usually chapstick, a bit of nutrition, and key fobs during running races. Btw, the ‘Mountain’ color is a fun color, a definite departure from the usual blacks & grays.

Love these

Love the look of these and the fit. The only downside is the drawstring cord is super stretchy and a bit hard to get tightened and tied.
