Kitsbow Merino Base Short: These shorts are kinda spendy, and the truth is I want one of almost everything Kitsbow makes, but there’s a good reason why I want them. You see, I love merino wool. I have merino socks, mountain bike jerseys, base layers, sweaters, jackets – even underwear. But all of my riding shorts are made of nylon and spandex. Plastic, basically. I have a little of the roadie in me so my taint appreciates a quality Italian chamois, which these have, but my dirty mountain biker side is usually too busy scouting for a post-ride beer to change right away.
On road trips, I want a pair of shorts that I always reach for on the EPIC day – the ones I’m probably going to be in for 8 hours before the riding is done, when the weather is going to change 4 times and we’ll alternate between 100% hammer and 100% goofing off while some jerk changes their flat and everyone else is sweaty and getting chilly. These are those shorts! Plus, they’re made right here in Vancouver, so there you go – homey points. I promise to wear them all the time, even when I forget to wash them (but I will always make sure they pass the sniff test first). If you’d rather get me something that’ll earn you more credit because it won’t be out of sight on every ride, how about the Long Sleeve All Mountain Jersey?
