Arcana Vest

$159.00
The key to this piece is the fabric that was developed for use by U.S. Special Forces with a simple objective: eliminate the need of adding or dropping layers during dynamic and static activities. We saw this as a solution to the cyclists layering problem. The fabric technology also allows for the transport of moisture without getting cold; so, unlike your puffy down jacket, this vest will keep you warm when moisture is involved.

We gave the shell of this piece a C6 DWR water resistant treatment. This allows water to bead up and keeps the surface of the piece from becoming saturated with moisture.
This vest is designed for on-bike performance. For an urban fit, we recommend sizing up.
  • Breathable insulation on front of torso for fast-forward activities with lighter fill on the back
  • Designed to reduce the need of adding and removing layers
  • Two-way structural blend, 97% nylon exterior for abrasion resistance,100% polyester inner for wicking
  • Certified to meet air permeability standards, C6 DWR water repellency
  • Brushed fleece lined pockets and collar for a warm touch where you feel it most
  • Tapered fit for on-bike performance (order a size up for a more relaxed fit)
  • Surprisingly cozy rib-knit collar to keep your neck warm
  • Kitsbow secured stash pocket, reflective back hem

CRASH POLICY

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 vest with small pockets.

This is a great vest. I have a couple other insulated cycling vests - specialized, Alpinestars - and I like this one the best. The fit and the amount of insulation are right on. You can also wear it somewhere "normal" and people won't look at you funny. Absolutely buy a size up, though. I'm an across-the-board small in cycling gear. I got the medium b/c of what I read. There's no way the small would've fit me. Could be a perfect vest, but the zippered pockets are so tiny! There are plenty of pockets, but I can't fit my phone in any of the ones that zip shut. My phone fits in the hand warmer pockets, but you don't have the security. I hope for everyone's sake that they start making the vest with at least one zippered pocket - either the inner chest or the back - that can fit a modern size phone. 5'7", 135lbs Medium fits

Love it!

This was a gift for my husband. Now that he’s got it, he wears it all of the time. For cycling as well as around the house and out. It’s perfect for our cool summers, and he looks stylish. Definitely runs small, as noted in the sizing. He’s pretty much usually a Medium, and since I was shooting for a cycling vest, I thought getting a Medium would work. But it’s just a bit too tight across his chest (he’s slender, but maybe has a broad chest?), so we exchanged for a Large, which is perfect and now he wears it over his flannel shirts as well. Thanks for always having spot-on gear that make for super special gifts. Performance wear.

Pretty bomber vest!

This vest stops a cold wind flat. It is perfect for chilly mornings or when a cold wind is blowing, but you don’t want a full jacket. The sizing is 1 size smaller than any other Kitsbow piece. I am 5’9” and wear a large in pretty much every piece of outer wear I own. The XL is perfect. Nice soft collar, aero fit and really good in inclement weather. I life to wear with the Henley or Icon depending on the temperature.

Mostly Great

Awesome vest, does a good job at temperature management, just as claimed. I went for a size up for a looser fit. The collar is so comfy and love the magnetic fastening. I wish the zipper was a bit beefier and could zip both ways tho. Also as mentioned in other reviews a bigger back pocket would be a great improvement.

Great Vest

A very fitted piece of clothing. From a sizing perspective, I am a medium across all my tops but for this vest I am glad that I went with a large (as recommended by staff) as this is very fitted. The magnetic clasp at the neck is really useful and the vest breathes well as compared to the down filled one I had been using prior.
