What To Wear – 2016 Apparel Roundup

“Kitsbow produces some very fine pieces of cycling apparel and some of it uses wool, a material loved by touring cyclists. Made from merino wool in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Ride Tee has a nice casual look. With naturally antibacterial properties and excellent breathability, the Ride Tee is my new favorite mountain biking top. With a token pocket on both the chest and back of the shirt, I wear it mostly when using a hydration pack. Thankfully, Kitsbow thought of that and added double material on the shoulders to guard against wear from straps. Certainly not cheap but definitely built to last, Kitsbow’s Ride Tee gets two thumbs up from us.”

“Arm and knee warmers are vital bits of cycling kit. But a set that doesn’t fit will only detract from the fun of cycling. Thankfully, for my long, skinny arms, Kitbows’ small arm warmers fit wonderfully. Both the arm and knee warmers have an abrasion-resistant material over the knee and elbow for added warmth and to protect the wool from snagging. Silicone grippers at the top of the arm and knee warmers keep them comfortably in place. Note that Kitsbow also offers Road Arm and Knee Warmers that use a thinner, more Lycra-like material.”

"Kitsbow has transformed the lowly hoodie, a normally formless, beater piece of clothing that's as disposable as it is comfy, into a beautiful, enduring piece of equipment. The merino-polyester blend is both warm and water-resistant as well as exceedingly durable."
