Cool weather adventurers have a new friend. Meet the Tempest Merino Tight, which brings additional versatility to our Women’s Fit collection. Delivering optimal comfort and fit on a bike, we've taken it a step further, by offering two ankle lengths. This allows you to hone the length to fit you. Find your trim and flattering fit all the way down the ankle. And rest, knowing that nothing floppy will catch in your chainring.

Further, as a chamois-less merino tight, the Tempest is as versatile as you are. Wear it over your favorite bib short, under a MTB short paired with a short liner, or stand alone. From running and yoga; to gravel and single track. The Tempest has you covered.


Made To Order, Less Waste™ simply means minimizing waste — by making only what is needed — and maximizing our flexibility to offer customers more choices, more colors, sizes and fits.

More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

CRASH POLICY

Our crew often rides hard and we are here for you when things go awry. If you crash and trash your Kitsbow, get in touch with us.

If it can be repaired, we'll do that for a reasonable charge. If it can't be repaired (if you were really ripping it), we'll figure out a way to get you back on your bike wearing Kitsbow anyway. Just get in touch. The same policy applies to typical wear and tear: we'll repair it for a reasonable charge (if it can be repaired) or get you back into Kitsbow some other way if it cannot be repaired.

Versatile

Excellent tights! Warm as a solo layer and also work well under waterproof trousers. Been wearing in temps down to -2deg for both cycle touring and some winter hikes. Brilliant!

Amazing

Not as warm as I feared, which makes them perfect for spring riding! The only possible complaint/place for improvement is to make them just a titch higher waisted in the back.

A multi-tool for cooler temps!

I purchased these after reading a review about them in Adventure Cyclist. I hesitated a bit due to the price, but I'm happy I pulled the trigger. These work really well for cool weather hiking/mtb riding, and for cross country skiing. Here in Montana, they fit the bill. I'm 5'3 with a sturdy build, so I ordered large/short. I don't like super tight leggings that feel like sausage casings - these are comfy, warm and functional. I'll get years of use from them.

So luxurious...I'm wearing them now

These are absolutely the best tights I've ever worn. I have other tights for yoga, for running, for biking, for hiking which now seems crazy. The Tempest Merino Tight covers all activities including WFH (standing desk or sitting). I took them on vacation to Edisto Island State Park in South Carolina in January. I wore them for running three times and yoga twice and they performed throughout without sagging or stretching and, crazy I know, but without stinking. They are dreamy on the bike. I pair them with the Tsali short when riding for the perfect combo of comfort and coverage on late winter and early spring days in the woods. Recently, I joined a road/gravel ride when winds were gusting pretty hard (as they will do in March in western North Carolina) and they were perfect. I can't say that I don't notice wearing them, because they feel so dreamy against my skin that I often think of how cozy they feel. The waist band stays put and is higher in the back which is important to me. I have two pairs of Tempests and I will recommend them to all my friends.

Perfect for riding and other outdoor activities

I have worn these a few times riding and really loved the fit and functionality. I paired them with the Kitsbow liner shorts and these are one of those garments that you don’t need to fuss with, which is perfect when you are focused on the ride. I didn’t find the pocket to be very useful for rides, but absolutely love them when running, walking my pup, or running errands. I’m 5-9 and 158lbs and bought the large. The fit is perfect for biking and around town. I like a bit more support for running, so I would have sized down if that was my primary use.
