TheGearCaster.com Reviews Kitsbow Drifter Jean

by P.K. Hart January 05, 2015

The founding fathers of mountain biking all wore jeans (sometimes complete with knee pads) and wool shirts. While most modern mountain bikers now dress head to toe in lycra, California based mountain bike apparel brand Kitsbow wants to bring back a bit of that nostalgia with the Drifter Jean and Icon Shirt–classic pieces perhaps more appropriate now for the urban cyclist.

The slim-fit Drifter ($230) is a classic 5-pocket denim jean with small refinements for cyclists. Interior seams are smooth and finished in order to offer a more comfortable active fit, plus the four-piece curved waist band creates a better setup when you are down in the riding position–no plumber’s smile here.

Made from a blend of cotton, Cordura, and Lycra, the jeans are durable but stretchy enough to move with you when riding. Roomy thighs and a crescent shaped seam around the knee create extra freedom of movement, while a reflective print on inside of the back left leg adds a hit of visibility.
