When you acquire our gear, you’re part of a movement to buy higher quality that lasts longer, thereby minimizing damage to the Earth and helping employ Americans in an artisan skill that has largely vanished since the 1970s and 1980s.
Today, Just 2% of clothes purchased in the U.S. are made here in the U.S. By purchasing Kitsbow gear, you are helping bring back the skill of crafting premium apparel here in America.
Our design team ensures that these clothes are stylish, functionally perfect, last for years, and fit so well that they “disappear” as you move on the bike and trail.
And we offer sizes for every body, an initiative we began several years ago with 49 different size combinations of our travel pants, and continues today. Sign up here to be updated on our constant innovation, increased size ranges, and new news.
We’re part of the community in this historic town of Old Fort, but we weren’t first. The indigenous people who lived in this area... grew sustainable crops, and acted as stewards of the land until they were forced to leave. The Cherokee, Yuchi, and Catawba people were here long before the Europeans. We benefit today from their stewardship.
