Bolivia Vista Tank by Janji
Materials: 92% polyester, 8% spandex, 100% polyester mesh back—comes in five colors
Best Features: Breathable and fun, unique design.
Room for Improvement: Fit is a little big.
Janji is a running brand on the rise and I can see why—their clothes are unique, chic and well-made. I’ve found myself wearing Janji to the grocery store more than once, and the Bolivia Vista Tank is a nice addition to my running-to-errand wardrobe. The Bolivia Vista Tank features a fun open back with a middle mesh panel. The open back design provides a serious amount of breathability while never feeling too exposed.
The side panels on the back have a little more extra material than necessary – you might feel them flapping in the wind while you run, or hanging by your arms in a yoga pose—but they never felt in the way. In fact, a slight breeze from the panels during a hot, humid run might be just the thing you need! The fabric is extremely lightweight and soft.
This tank runs a little big, with a long torso and large arm holes, so I’d suggest sizing down unless you want an oversized fit. The only thing I’d ask Janji to change about this tank for future iterations is the high, v-flap neckline that gives the shirt a masculine feel. If you’re looking for a unique, breathable tank for hot and humid conditions, this might be the one for you!
