The Backforty

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.

Best shirt for work

Of all of the Kitsbow shirts I've worn, this one fits flawlessly into the most diversity of work and social situations. The cut and materials are still excellent for riding and commuting, but the overall appearance of the shirt blends in great with people who aren't wearing riding clothing. 5 Stars

Call me a believer

To say that I love the Icon is an understatement. Function, fashion, and the whole nine yards. When I heard there was a Kitsbow lightweight button up, the Backforty, I was skeptical that it could measure up to the quality of my beloved Icon. Combining the features of the Icon in a lightweight package seemed like an impossible task, but after wearing this all day in 80 degree Reno, NV heat I am now a believer. Features...check. Fashion.....check. Didn't sweat through it in the first 5 minutes like I would with every other shirt like this......double check. Glad to add the Backforty to the collection and to fill out the wardrobe for the warmer months.

Staying cool on the bike is a snap!

For rides longer than four hours -- especially dirt touring -- I prefer a long sleeve button-up shirt. I find these shirts to be an extremely versatile piece of gear. I first starting using fishing shirts, which work well but don't look good on me off the bike. I also like western-style shirts because they have snap buttons; staying cool on the bike is, uh, a snap; however, the fabrics are not great for managing the heat and sweat. What I've always wanted is a shirt which looked good off the bike but also had bike functionality (fabrics and snaps) for long rides in the saddle. The Backforty connects the dots. It dries quickly, I can snap and unsnap with one hand, and it now has a place in my off-the-bike wardrobe as well!
