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.

Perfection

Like so many others, I’m a huge fan of these Groundwork tights—they’re like the signature Janji product, clearly for good reason! You can tell when something was thoughtfully made by people who use it. It has all the pockets, with multiple options to store a large phone. LOVE the pass-thru pocket to stow light layers. So glad it has the waist tie to really lock down the fit, but is also unobtrusive to those who prefer not to use it. The Groundwork fabric is really nice, feels luxe as the price point warrants: stretchy, soft, and breathable, doesn’t pill so good durability. Disappears on a run. I’ll say that the lighter and brighter colors are a bit see-through, and will of course show sweat. I don’t care about the sweat (means I’m working hard!), but I can’t help but feel a bit self-conscious about strangers knowing the color and precise shape of my underwear… I try to remember to wear a lighter pair with my “Cardinal” color tights, which solves the issue for me. I like the fun range of colors, though I could do without the contrasting seam color at the crotch. Another weird “me” thing, because I dislike crotch seams on my gear in general (but I get that it’s often a necessary evil :/). Extremely minor dings on a phenomenal tight!

I find these perfect for temps in the 30s, when it’s just past 40s shorts weather and not quite the winter tights of the 20s and below. I got my usual bottoms size Small (waist 26”, hips 37”, thighs 22” circumference), and will try out the XS on my next order. Small fits well, but I think there’s just enough extra give that I’ll see how I like the next size down. One thing I know for sure though is that these will be my next pair of running tights 😎

Best for EVERYTHING

I bought these tights specifically for running but since I got injured I’m wearing them for everything else!

Great leggings, size down!

I am by all accounts a size medium, but with the size medium of these running leggings, I ran into the main issue mentioned by many of the other reviewers: falling down. So I ignored the size chart and got a size small, and there was absolutely no falling!

So ladies, I would size down. You can always exchange if it doesn’t work, but it “slippage” is a concern for you I think this is the way to go. The size small for me is not uncomfortable, just snug. Hope that helps!

Great running tights

Perfect; just wish they had zippered rear pocket on waistband to hold keys securely and noiselessly while I run

Nice Leggings

What I like most is the fabric—it feels substantial without being stiff and also of quality where it's not going to pill up like some of the more "buttery" leggings. I prefer the sleekness.

Wonderful tights for climbing, running, and yoga

I wear these for climbing, running, and walking, and they are amazing! They are comfortable and durable, but also breathable. The length is perfect, and I like that they sit comfy on my hips. They look flattering, too.

Perfect legging

These are my favorite leggings. In particular, I’m partial to the length, minimal seams, light weight, and high pockets. Even the reflective branding on the right thigh and left ankle lends to a very tasteful sporty look.

Love

Pockets, perfect fit, drawstring and high rise. What's not to love! Good for cooler days but not warm enough for cold days (50 or below). I'm tall and these hit just below my calf. Love the grey color!
