Finding the perfect pair of trail shorts is a battle between comfort and function. You find lightweight, breathable shorts, but they have minimal pocket space for essentials like keys and a phone. You find shorts with pocket space, but the inclusion of extra pockets adds heavier material and bulkiness that bounces as you run.
The new AFO-Vent Multi Short from Janji offers a stellar solution, with the comfort of Janji’s all-new AFO-Vent nylon fabric and the function of an innovative multi-pocket system offering five no-bounce pockets integrated into the waistband.
The AFO-Vent Multi Short is a lightweight trail short with a micro-perforated shell to keep you cool on the go. Its soft side waistband and integrated moisture-wicking brief liner prevent chafing on long haul runs, while the AFO-Vent fabric stands out as a durable, 4-way stretch nylon that’s abrasion-resistant, retains shape well, fights odor, and dries fast. Small side notches provide unhampered movement, while the infinity loop drawcord offers an adjustable fit that won’t wear out in the wash.
All that said, without a doubt the standout feature of the AFO-Vent Multi Short is the multi-pocket system. It efficiently integrates into the waistband, offering five power mesh-lined pockets for all manner of accessories. Long gone are the days of struggling to jam car keys, phone, a headlamp, gels, a soft flask, and gloves into a couple of tiny pockets, or having all your items bounce around while you run. These pockets are sleek and barely noticeable, but can still fit all the necessities with room to spare, providing an unhindered run even when you’re fully loaded.
The stylish, minimalist design rounds out the AFO-Vent Multi Short, with attractive hues in Midnight, Dusk, and Jasper. The shorts are emblazoned with a reflective Janji logo on front and watermark reflectivity on back to increase visibility in low-light conditions.
