Escalator Merino Crew
Made Just For You
Elevate Your Comfort
The Escalator Merino Crew features an extremely adaptable dual-facing merino fabric. The (34%) soft merino yarn sits next to skin and pulls away moisture while regulating temperature. And the (66%) polyester yarns are knit to the outside, facing the elements, delivering toughness and quick drying.
With the Escalator Merino Crew, what you get is a most versatile piece of gear, which can be worn by itself or as a base layer. It is our idea of the perfect long sleeve. Comfortable around the house or whatever adventure awaits.

Around the house and on whatever adventure awaits?!
Seems like typical hyperbole...can't be true. But it is. I can wear these all day long at home and I just returned from a 7 day backpacking trip on the John Muir Trail...I slept in it, I layered it over a sun hoodie for only other daytime layer I needed...the performance-to-weight and performance-to-cost on this garment blow away just about everything else I own. And my experience with Kitsbow gear is that it'll last a long time...while I already have a few of these, I feel like grabbing another one (at least) is a smart move for the long term.
Love this wool pullover! Fit and detail craftsmanship are perfect Very comfortable and smooth finish I expect this will last for many years
Destined to be a Favorite
I love everything about this shirt, the comfort, feel and warmth are Wonderful. The fit is spot on, Medium for my 5ft 7 150 lb frame. Quality is top shelf. This is my 2nd escalator crew. Perfect for layering or lounging. Great under a Flannel for extra warmth. I also own 2 escalator Henley’s
Best base layer ever
Worth the wait even with additional Covid related delays. The fit is perfect and was just what I was looking for: just a bit less warm and itchy than my l.l.bean and smart wool 250 base layers. The only problem is now I want one of everything kitsbow makes and I need to let the credit card cool down a bit. Expensive but worth it, and awesome to support local business while riding the local trails.
Very nice blend, feel, and construction. Perfect for varied temps and layering in fall, winter, and spring. I'm 6'1 155 lbs and the medium fits great, close to the body but not tight or restrictive. I have long arms and the sleeve length is spot on with no wrist gap while riding. Body length is good as well. In person, the Oxblood color is more purple than the burgundy/red on the website, but I like it.
