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.

These shorts are amazing!! I wear them for my long runs, and my marathons. They have great storage. I like them to have a little room in them so I order a medium although if you like the super tight you could Go! Wits small which is what I normally order in all my other shorts.

Almost perfect

I love these shorts for running because of the pockets. I am a type 1 diabetic so I need to carry extras beyond my typical fuel and these shorts hold it all without bouncing. They stay up without too much compression, which can sometimes feel stifling on a long run. My only complaint is the length. I wish these came in a 5” length similar to the pace shorts (but keep the pockets!). The 3.5” length tends to ride up during the first mile of the run (before I sweat enough to make it stick). After that, it’s fine. But a slightly longer length would be more comfortable. The length is the only thing stopping me from purchasing more pairs of these shorts.

Perfect shorts!

These are my new favorite running shorts by far. Super comfortable. The fabric is lighter than other pairs I own from different brands but way better quality and more durable. The pockets are perfect for storing my phone, gels, keys, and snacks, and they have never chafed me. I am an XS in most bottoms (5’1 and ~100lbs) and XS fit perfectly.

INCREDIBLE!

I just bought a pair a couple months ago and just finished two ultra marathons while wearing them, a 50k and 100 miles. It was so nice not having to wear a pack if I didn’t want to during my races. Size is spot on, and it held everything I needed including food, water, headphones, squirrels nut butter and my phone! I absolutely loved these shorts, can’t wait until they get more black ones in stock as well as more color options. Thanks for such a great product! Looking forward to trying more of Janjis gear!

Amazing! Bought in multiple colors and has a clip in the pocket which I use to attach my keys while running.
