Beginning in 2021, we reengineered our Transit Tech fabric to be made from recycled polyester instead of virgin poly, lowering the impact of this textile. We also increased the stretch and reduced the weight while we were at it to improve overall comfort and performance.

Transit Tech uses a short-chain C6 DWR finish that, while better than long-chain DWR applications, we recognize is not environmentally ideal as it is PFC-based. However, C6 DWR does provide the best performing and longest-lasting water repellency we have found so far on soft-shell fabrics. Because of this we have chosen to use it on select products while we continue to research PFC-free alternatives, like the water repellency used on our Zephyr Runner fabric.


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

I can't speak highly enough about these shorts. I have worn them on hikes with my pup, fly fishing and out & about around town. They are SUPER comfortable, flattering and I am huge fan of how they fit. 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND.

Leah Weisman

I got these shorts a week ago and I have not taken them off yet. They are so comfortable and such a nice material. I also really appreciate that the color options go outside of the standard women's color scheme of pinks and purples that you see in so many outdoor brands. Happy to have zippered pockets and no liner.

Super sweet

I actually bought these for my boyfriend; they look great on him! Wondering why they aren’t available for men?

Love these

These are my new favorite shorts. I wish there was a longer option. I'd wear those to go around and do chores.

Erin Roush
I've found my go-to running shorts...

That basically says it all. These and several others from janji are all I run in now. They know what runners need, and make it!

Almost, almost perfect

TT Short 2021.
Great fit, great material. LOVE the new zippered pockets in the front.

Close to perfect...
To make them perfect, Janji, please, could you make my dreams come true and (1) add me a tiny pocket just for my keys so they jingle less when I run, and more importantly, (2) make the skinside of the back pocket sweat resistant/proof??

As an extra bonus, if you make them come in black, I will return and buy moooore

Bought every color!

I loved my transit tech shorts from last season so when I saw these, I immediately got a pair....then once they arrived I immediately bought all of the colors. The colors are perfect and the shorts are very comfortable. I like that they don't have liners, so they are more versatile (activewear and work-from-home wear) and that they have many secure pockets. I'm looking forward to wearing them all summer.

These are the greatest shorts I have ever owned

I don’t think I have ever loved a pair of shorts as much as I love these shorts. As soon as I received my first pair I bought another because they were so comfortable, cute, and breathable. The pockets are a huge bonus as well. I’m excited to wear these shorts literally every day this summer- as well as for hiking, running, etc. My only complaint is the low stock of extra smalls- otherwise I would probably buy a third pair!

Go-To Adventure Shorts

These are the first shorts I reach for when I am heading out on an adventure. The flattering cut feels fashion forward while giving me plenty of coverage and that "fast" running short feel. I prefer shorts without liners on overnight trips and car camping to give me the option to wear them multiple times with running "undies" or even bathing suit bottoms underneath. They dry quickly an I plan to even bring these on river trips later this year to shift from swimming to hiking in a flash!
