Janji Bolivia Men’s Running Apparel Review

About Janji

Janji is a Boston-based brand specializing in stylish men’s and women’s running apparel. They gather design inspiration from the places they visit and the people they meet, pretty apparent by the naming of their seasonal collections. It’s also clear that the regions Janji visit to draw inspiration for design have been imprinted on the clothing themselves with carefully chosen color palettes and custom design prints by the best artists in the business. This review is going to focus on two new items from the Janji Bolivia men’s collection, which draws inspiration from, you guessed it, Bolivia!

RELATED POSTS: A couple of months ago we tried and tested some tops and shorts from Janji’s Uganda Collection for both men and women. You can check those out below.

We love that Janji donates a portion of its sales towards funding clean water projects in countries around the World. It’s always exciting to hear about trendy running brands backing great causes.

Janji Bolivia Men’s Compass Singlet

Janji Bolivia Compass Singlet – $48 at runjanji.com

The Bolivia Compass Singlet is slim fit which means there won’t be any excess material, as long as you’re of a slim build of course, otherwise you may need to size up.

As you may expect from a singlet, it’s very lightweight which makes this running top great for racing or running long distances with. It really does feel like you’re hardly wearing anything because of this and you’ll notice that it’s also very breathable, moisture wicking and fast drying.

But of course, the most striking thing about this singlet and what really sets it apart is the epic print design work that has gone into it. The print was designed exclusively for Janji by Bolivian artist Claudia Gorena. It’s Bold, energetic and mysterious!

Janji Bolivia men's review - Trail & Kale wm-8

Print story: “Las caras de carrera” means “faces of the race” and the design is about the universal emotions we all go through on the course and in life — joy, suffering, ritual, drama, exhaustion, seriousness and silliness — with a heavy dose of Bolivian graphic influence. Learn all about this print and the collab with artist Claudia HERE.

And finally, there’s a reflective logo on the back of the Janji Bolivia Compass Singlet, as shown in the photo to the right (above on mobile devices).












Janji Bolivia 5″ Middle Shorts in Sol Morado

I LOVE these shorts just as much as the Uganda version. The detailing and asymmetric design with that colorful stripe down one side is so nice. The deep purple which covers most of the shorts and the slightly muted orange and teal colors play very well together. The color scheme looks especially good while running during the autumn months. The material on the shorts, similarly to the singlet is very breathable, sweat wicking and fast drying.

Janji bolivia mens 5 Middle Short
Janji Blovia 5″ Middle Short – $58 at runjanji.com

Instead of a drawstring, these shorts have an elasticated waistband with an exclusive design by Bolivian artist Claudia Gorena along it. You’ll just have to buy a pair to see what it looks like 🙂 There’s also an inner brief to hold your crown jewels in place while running.

I did however notice a small amount of chafe from the inner brief as I passed the 3 hours of continuous running mark, during my most recent 30k trail race in California. This may have been because it was a very hot day and I was giving it everything; I’ll update this post if I experience it again.

Summary

If you’re after a new running outfit that will help you stand out from the crowd and is of the highest quality yet reasonably priced, then I’d recommend giving Janji a try. It’s nice knowing that you’ll also be buying from a boutique brand that donates a portion of their sales towards funding clean water projects in countries around the World.

Where to buy

Janji changes their styles and colours quite frequently so if you’re after a particular style it’s best to snap it up while it is available in your size.

To our knowledge, the only place you can buy Janji Clothing is direct from the Janji Online Store.
