Scouting Report: These pants are lightweight, breathable, flexible, and great for running and even better for just sitting on the couch.
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. It’s already starting to get hot in Atlanta, but I already know that I’ll be wearing these pants all summer. As an added bonus that I could never imagine how much I would appreciate, Janji’s Transit Tech has waterproofing and wind resistance baked in that has kept me dry during spring showers.
The pants are snug, as you would want any piece of clothing to be when you’re moving, but they’re not overly tight either. 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. There is enough pocket space for your phone, keys and wallet, but the pants also use a double looped weaver design on the inside of the leg to keep the fabric from sticking to my skin when I start to sweat. It’s hard not to appreciate the convergence of great design and practical wearability that Janji has managed in a single piece of clothing.
