Icon Merino Relaxed Athletic Fit

The Icon Merino Relaxed Athletic Fit is a lighter weight option which is cooler and dries faster. 

The Pendleton® merino fabric is both soft and tough; and regulates temperature naturally, maximizing comfort as conditions change, making it perfect for traveling light.

We've designed the Relaxed Athletic Fit as an ideal Shirt-jacket fit. Cut with just enough room in the shoulders and chest for layering, while allowing for excellent range of motion and a moderately tailored look.

If you normally wear a Signature Fit, consider adding a Relaxed Athletic Fit to your lineup for use as a perfect outer-layer shirt or light jacket.

Make Mine Now means when you buy it, we'll make it.

Note: When you place your order today you will wait about 2 weeks for your Icon to ship, sometimes longer for certain fabrics. Why? Because we're committed to making the best US-made premium flannels; and because we make them ourselves our Icon Shirts are made with greater precision, greater care, and to higher standards than ever before. We stay in touch by email, and your purchase date determines your place in line.

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.

Great Icon

Fantastic Icon - love the lighter weight merino wool. Living in So Cal, I know this will be a regular item for me. On the bike in cooler seasons and a great “shacket” for after ride use. Another winner from Kitsbow.

All weather favorite

I didn't really NEED another Icon, but when I saw that merino in the Black Mountain I caved. I'm typically a large in the Signature Fit, but I opted to try a medium in the Relaxed Athletic Fit. Definitely not disappointed! The extra room in the chest and shoulders is spot on for layering down in those shoulder seasons for those icy "beat the thaw" trail rides or throwing on over a polo to hit the pub. And like all Icons, it pairs equally well with a pair of Haskell shorts or jeans. Kudos to Kitsbow for making such a fine product, sewing it in the US and doing good for the planet with their efforts in sustainability.
