Kitsbow MTB Wind Vest Reviewed by Vital MTB

True to Kitsbow’s style, their MTB Wind Vest is a well-made piece with high-end flavor. It is designed and marketed as a mountain bike vest, but looks much more like a road piece, and the fit doesn’t exactly argue against that impression. The semi-form fit is comfortable and ergonomic in cut, but doesn’t leave much room for body shapes outside that of the pro peloton. Arm holes fill up quickly and their elastic bands keep drafts out without being uncomfortable. The arm holes are also located more forward than usual to provide a cut specific to riding, which makes the vest fit a bit awkward and tight across the chest while standing around – not an issue, unless you’re the type to stand around in coffee shops in full kit.

"Fortunately, this henley splits the difference with a trim but not awkward fit and merino-poly fabric that's cool in the wind but tough enough to take the abuse of errant rocks and branches."
