Living in a city where walking is usually the best option for getting around means that sometimes the weather sometimes doesn’t cooperate when I need to run or jump on my bike for a few miles to clear my head. Ever since gyms closed down during the pandemic, I’ve almost exclusively relied on outdoor exercise to get my blood flowing and stave off insanity, but too often I’ve been stymied by rain or temperatures that fluctuate from too cool for running shorts to exceedingly warm for tights. Janji, a running brand on a mission to expand access to clean water, has made a pair of athletic pants that give me no excuse not to get outside no matter the weather.
Much of Janji’s extremely wearable line of running-focused activewear is made so breathable and lightweight by the Transit Tech material they developed specifically for transitioning between the higher heart rate moments to calmer ones. This material makes these pants the lightest weight and most breathable pants I currently own. The pants follow you when you move, but have nothing but give and accommodation when you need to use your full range of motion. In many ways, it’s clear that these pants were designed and fabricated by people who actually run. Finally.
