Janji and Nike 2023 Women's Sustainable Summer Run Apparel Reviews

Article by Jamie Hershfang

Janji Long Bra ($70)

The Janji Long Bra has become a new favorite of mine when I want a little more coverage than a standard sports bra but don’t feel like wearing a full tank or shirt.

It has a near seamless feel and fits true to size. I’ve worn it for both running and the gym, and felt like just the right amount of support. The pocket in the back fits a large phone perfectly, or for other essentials you don’t want to carry. I love that it doesn’t move or ride up when running and keeps everything in place. 

-racer back pocket carries phone comfortably

-light compression with a seamless feel

-lightly padded, removable inserts 

-racerback fit with wide shoulder straps 

-Janji reflective logo on back for visibility

-100% recycled polyester fabric 

Janji Run All Day Tank ($54)

The Run All Day Tank is a great option for those humid or hot workouts. A loose, lightweight fit that doesn’t cling to the body when sweaty. I really enjoyed wearing this for some gym sessions, when I need to wear a top, but don’t want my top to soak me down. 

It has a soft, buttery feel, yet super breathable. I love the fact that is has sun protection for when I just want to wear it all day outside. A great top to wear casually and for sweaty activities. I probably wouldn’t wear it for racing, but definitely comfort for all kinds of activities.

-high speed dry material 

-cling resistant fit

-flatlock seam to prevent chafing 

-HeiQ Fresh odor control treatment 

-UPF 25 sun protection 

-100% recycled polyester fabric 

Janji 3” AFO Middle Short ($68)

These shorts are lightweight and quick drying for running and comfort. The 3’ inseam feels like just the right length on these to not feel restricting and not too exposed. The back pocket is big enough to fit your essentials, as well as a front internal pocket for your keys or cards. A seamless feel with a built in liner which makes these shorts a great option for performance and everyday runs. 

-AFO stretch fabric for a weightless feel

-built in liner 

-knit waistband with internal drawstring 

-rear zip pocket and front internal pocket 

-reflective logo for visibility 

Janji AFO Hyper Light Cap ($38)

The Hyperlight cap optimizes performance with a near weightless feel. With a foam brim and rear bungee strap, this hat is designed to be packable and don’t have to worry about getting scrunched up when packed. It’s ideal when you’re on the go. As someone who doesn’t often wear hats, I find this to be super comfortable and hardly noticeable. Easy to wash and quick to dry, hard to beat! 

-weightless feel

-quick dry to keep you cool

-crushable foam brim helps keep its shape 

-bungee strap provides an adaptable fit 

-reflective logo and bungee cord provides high visibility

- 88% recycled polyester, 12% spandex

Janji Multipass Sling Bag

The Multipass Sling Bag is perfect for everyday activities, especially running. It has multiple pockets with up to 2L of storage. With a water repellent material and adaptable fit, it can be used all year round. For those run commutes where you just need your essentials, this bag is perfect. Or when I’m out and about and don’t feel like carrying a bag, this has been just what I needed. 

-water repellent DWR finish 

-lightweight padded support for extra comfort  

-flex space to secure a jacket or sport bottle 

-adjustable fit with an extra strap and bungee 

-cross body strap for added support when you’re on the go/running 

-2 way wearability: can be worn as a sling back across the front or back, or as a Fanny pack 

-high visibility reflective straps

Nike Aeroswift Singlet ($72)

I’m always looking for the lightest and most breathable tops for those hot days, as I tend to sweat a lot. While it hasn’t been super warm lately, for the warmer days we’ve had, I love that it doesn’t get heavy with sweat, doesn’t create friction, and dries off quickly. 

With a looser fit, I feel like it’s fairly true to size. This top is made for racing, or days when you’re working out hard.

According to Nike, these tops are made from 75% recycled polyester. The recycled polyester used in these products begins as recycled plastic bottles, shredded, and then converted into pellets. The pellets are then spun into new, high quality yarn used to make these products with a lower impact on the environment. As part of their sustainability effort, Move to Zero, they are part of Nike’s journey towards zero carbon and zero waste 

Nike Aeroswift Tight Shorts ($65)

As someone who prefers a bit of a longer length short, these Aeroswift shorts are in fact, pretty short. While they have a 4.5’  inseam, they fit fairly tight and feel like they ride up while running. I love a race short with pockets, and these didn’t have any. However, they do a great job keeping you feeling dry and fast. 

I love the stretch fabric, and they’re super comfortable, if only they were just a bit longer. The elastic waistband hits just a bit too low for my liking. While these shorts may be great for women who love running in spandex or a very tight short, these unfortunately just aren’t my favorite.
