36 Hours in Kitsbow: Petaluma to Marin

At Kitsbow we strive to fit it all in: work, family, and fun. But when it feels like adventure is something others do, it's time to hit pause. Then eject. Because adventure is just outside our door, maybe even a short train ride away. The key is to go.

Kitsbow Basics: Don’t Call it a Hat

Ever since former Bicycling magazine editor-in-chief, Bill Strickland, put bicyclists on notice with the hashtag #capsnothats, a movement has been bubbling online (and more importantly, off) to bring the cycling cap back to prominence.

Why Merino Wool?

Kitsbow is not a “wool brand.” We don’t exist to extol the virtues of a single fabric, because it might be popular or sought-after. We are obsessed with finding the right tool for the job, in the right applications. And for over half our All Mountain Collection, Merino wool makes...

The Metaphor of a Startup

It's the story against which all other metaphors are made. The starting of a new business. The pushing of the big green button (or the throwing of a small red lever -- whichever visual you prefer). Well this isn't 'like' starting a new business, because we are starting a new...
