Our Backforty Longsleeve Shirt is truly born of an Icon. This is hardly an iteration of the Icon shirt, yet it shares many of the same features our customers have grown to love about it.
We used the same quality buttons, added ventilation across the back, tossed our signature stash pocket on the rear, and obsessed over designing the Backforty with the same tailored fit that many of our customers love.
The quality buttons make for easy snap adjustments, allowing for multiple combinations of ventilation. Using an engineered blend of fibers, this shirt maintains the comfort of cotton while allowing for the benefits of synthetics. The Backforty Longsleeve Shirt keeps the body cooler, drier and more comfortable than a shirt with all natural fibers.
With vintage-style plaid cues from our Pendleton ombre plaids, we're excited to present the Backforty Longsleeve Shirt for the months where you want a long sleeve, but still need some ventilation. The Backforty will help protect your skin against the elements, while maintaining comfort and style.
For reference, I'm 6'6", I own 2 Icon shirts in size XXL which fit perfect. I bought this one in XL based on reviews. I'm so happy with the material, cut, features and sizing and have since purchased a second in another color. Another great piece from Kitsbow!
Again, this is another great piece of clothing from Kitsbow. So far only used off the bike and I guess it will take some time to wear it on the bike. Just too nice for abuse. Fit is perfect (I am 186cm and 82kg, ordered size L) for both on and off the bike.
I love this shirt. So far, it has been super durable, comfortable and handles washing well. The shirt was kinda marketed as a summer version of the Icon shirt. But, I wouldn't say that is accurate description. It is cooler than the icon but just as warm as a normal cotton flannel. I grab this shirt over the icon if I'm doing something like getting sweaty or sitting around a campfire because this one washes well and I try not to wash the Icon so much. The fit is noticeably looser than the icon and may be worth sizing down. To me, the little pocket on the back is not that useful and makes the shirt stick out a little funny when I tuck it in. If the pocket was a little higher, I think I'd like it better.
Really nice shirt, just didnt work for my body type. I'm 5' 9", 155 and tried a medium. It was actually too big everywhere except the chest was too small so I know sizing down would not work. Oh well. Still have a bunch of icons that fit me fine.
Man, you guys over deliver again. Amazing shirt. I never want to take it off! Thanks, Marcus
