Soft and light!

I own two pairs of these and I love them! They are very soft and breathable. They are great for running in the heat. The only thing is the waistband is a little tight, I usually wear a small but I would probably try a medium next time.

fun print and comfortable for running

Sizing was true to size. I'm 5'4 and usually wear 4/6 and I bought a medium. Waist is a little snug but adjustable. Lots of pockets. Quick drying and good for summer.

Bought 7 pairs and replaced all my running shorts

Love these so much I bought 7 pairs and replaced my current stash of running shorts. I am very picky and have spent a few years trying to find a running short as my current pile of Saucony stopped being made several years ago and were wearing out. These are comfortable, dry quick and fun colors! The only thing I disliked was the seam in the back; I chaffed from it on my long run. I solved the issue by using Bodyglide. Very happy with these shorts!

BEST RUNNING SHORTS FOR MY THICK LEGS

I am a plus sized runner that's always been afraid to wear shorts running, and when I wanted to try shorts I could never find a good fit. These shorts literally have changed my life. They fit perfectly - the fabric dries quick and because they are lined I go commando and have zero chafing. They are very flattering. I have two pairs and on my way to a third. I won't EVER suffer through hot weather wearing long pants again - thank you Janji!

Love the updates

I had purchased these in a medium, not realizing the sizing had been relaxed. I definitely could have sized down but, they remain to be insanely comfortable and have the coolest print! Also, I LOVE the new waistband. High(er) rise for the win!

Great running shorts and everyday shorts

Super comfy, stretchy shorts! I usually have issues with chafing but these shorts seem to ride up less and cause less chafing issues! Love to wear these on my runs or for daily use.

This is my second review of these shorts. The first was probably two years ago, and I still love them. So why am I doing another review? I'll tell you.

This season's shorts are the BEST they've fit yet. I have the Mt. Merapi and Sea Stripe, and they are perfect. I feel like they are just a touch bigger in the waist and legs than last seasons, and it is not a perfect fit. I also noticed the drawstrings seem to be a bit longer, which is super helpful because they were a bit short in the past. Keep this fit forever, Janji!
