As the weather heats up, the transition away from layers and long sleeves means an update in the closet. At Janji, we love gear, which is why we wanted to find out what are the best women’s running tanks for 2018. This includes women’s running singlets and running tanks for those hot summer days. Below are the best moisture wicking running tanks for women.

Best Designed Tanks 


4. Lululemon Swiftly Tech Racerback, $58

The Canadian purveyor of yoga gear is better known for athleisure than running. But the company’s Swiftly Tech Racerback is a great choice for runners looking to wear something cute as the temperature heats up. The racerback is made with an anti-stink fabric, has no side seams, and comes in a variety of cute colorways. And with a flattering fit, you’ll absolutely love this piece, from the trails to the race.


Zoot Tank 

3. Women’s Zoot Sports West Coast Singlet Top, $35 (links to Amazon)

As the name implies, Zoot Sports pulls the funky patterns of this piece from the chill vibes of the West Coast. Made of 100% polyester and constructed with flat lock seaming, the Zoot Sports West Coast Singlet looks really cute on and performs at an exceptional high level. It wicks moisture away for the sticky summer days and, thanks to the tank's silhouette, will keep you looking fresh post-run… even when your body doesn’t feel fresh.





2. Oiselle Flyte Tank, $44 (links to Amazon)

Over its decade long existence, Oiselle (which means bird) has produced some undeniably cute pieces. The Flyte Tank, a mainstay within ever changing Oiselle lines, embodies the best of the brand. The tank's cut is designed for runners, it’s made of a slick 69% nylon, 31% polyester blend, and the fabric is anti-odor. The tank comes in several colors, and its bird-theme will be sure to give you wings on your next run or race.




1. Nike Tailwind Cool Tank, $45 (links to Amazon)

Simple yet sleek has been a hallmark of the Nike for decades. The Tainwind Cool tank is certainly both. Made of Dri-Fit technology (and an 85% polyester, 15% cotton blend), this is the perfect layer that can take you from an improtu run to an all day event. It’s versatile, performs, and looks stellar on. A definite recommend if you want to buy one of the best Nike running singlets for women.


Best Performance


4. Saucony Endorphin Singlet, $38 (links to Amazon)

With an ombre, horizontal line look, the Women’s Saucony Endorphin Singlet may not be our very favorite designed piece on the list. But this women's running singlet sure works when the temperature rises. The tank is made of 100% polyester, has a slim fit, and has front and rear reflectivity. If you’re looking for a women’s running singlet at a good price, the Endorphin Singlet is a great option.

3. Tracksmith Van Cortland Singlet, $65

Higher priced? Sure. But the Boston-based Tracksmith makes some of the better running pieces on the market. And this singlet, with its sash design, certainly feels soft to the touch and performs well, both around the neighborhood or when you’re racing. It comes in a variety colors and, especially if you’re looking for a slimmer runner cut, it'll fit great.

2. New Balance Determination Mesh Tank, $45 (links to Amazon)

Need a breathable tank for the summer? Look no further. The New Balance Determination Mesh Tank has an all-over mesh build; that can often come across as cheasy or cheap. But with the scalloped hemline, the tank looks cute and can truly performance. With extra side ventilation, a nylon/elastane construction, and flatlock seams, this piece truly performance. For the hottest conditions, the New Balance Determination Mesh Tank is a great choice.



1. Janji Hana Singlet, $34

Are we ashamed to put our tank as number one? Not at all! After years of researching the best running tanks and racing singlets (and the best fabrics) we designed the Hana Singlet. This piece funds clean water projects in Peru, is made of 100% breathable polyester, and has a high/low hem for added coverage. The design is inspired by Peruvian artists and proceeds help give clean water specifically back for Peru. If you want something that looks great, performs great, and does great work, look no further!
