Now you don't have to choose between stylish and functional. Kitsbow believes you can be cooler, drier, and more protected from the sun -- and look good too. The Glorieta V-Neck uses Polartec® Delta™ radiating knit structures containing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic yarn to actively lower your body temperature without using any chemicals. Your new favorite summer shirt just got a whole lot cooler.
I recently brought the Glorietta V-Neck on a backpacking trip in the South Pacific and it quickly became my new favorite do-it-all shirt! While we didn't do any riding, it was my go-to for running, hiking and even snorkeling when trying to avoid a sunburn. When living out of a backpack for nearly a month, every item of clothing you pack needs to have a role - and if I had to do it again I'd buy the Glorietta in an additional color and ditch a handful of my other active shirts. Thanks, Kitsbow!
This top is a fantastic combination of lightweight but sturdy material. My first outing was a 25 mile mountain bike ride with 2k feet of climbing under blue skies and 75-85 degrees. I tagged a tree with my shoulder and the material held up without so much as a mark. At 5'6" and 135lbs, the small fits snugly but not too tight. I could certainly wear a medium for a looser fit. Mostly I didn't think about what I was wearing which allowed me to focus on the scenery (and maybe some of the pain of climbing) of the trail. The tee felt good and dry for a stop at the pub after the ride too!
This tee is awesome for riding and then some! It's breathable, a great active fit (v neck not too low and slim enough to be out of the way but not restrictive), flattering without being too "girlie," and endlessly useful. The fabric is nice on the skin. I'm typically an XS in most brands but this tee in a Small fits perfecto.
Hooray! I don't have to steal my boyfriend's Delta Tee anymore! The Glorieta is the best summer shirt I've worn, because I completely forgot I was wearing it. The material wicks away sweat, and the fit is comfortable - no pulling on it or adjusting during a long ride. I will be wearing this often.
I plan to use this top for riding, running and walking my dog. It fits nicely and I love the v-neck. The fabric has a nice smooth feel...soft like cotton, but not plasticky like some tech fabrics.
