Escalator Merino Crew
With the Escalator Merino Crew, what you get is a most versatile piece of gear, which can be worn by itself or as a base layer. It is our idea of the perfect long sleeve. Comfortable around the house or whatever adventure awaits.
- 34%) Soft merino yarn sits next to skin and pulls away moisture while regulating temperature. And the (66%) polyester yarns are knit to the outside, facing the elements, delivering toughness and quick drying.
- Inspired by the Escalator Merino Henley, the Crew provides additional warmth within a clean crew neck package
- Sewn in the USA (Old Fort, NC)

WE ARE GOING BACK TO THE CONCEPT THAT AN INCH IS AN INCH. THESE ARE GARMENT DIMENSIONS: DEPENDING ON YOUR FIT PREFERENCES YOU MAY CHOOSE TO GO UP OR DOWN A SIZE FROM YOUR ACTUAL BODY MEASUREMENTS.
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.

Best shirt for riding I own, and I own a ton. This was my second one....I might go for a third. I use this with a merino base layer from freezing to 45 or 50 degrees. About 55-ish I just run this solo and I can get into 65 and sunny without getting hot. It breathes really well, but also holds the warmth nicely.
Another fine Kitsbow piece. Wish there was a little more merino in the materials mix to offer a slightly more supple but taut feel. That’s only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars rating. Fits true to size and manages temps well when ride starts cold, then encounters a few sun spots and next as temp gets colder as sun fades to dark. I wear this piece under Icon and performs nicely without any bunching on mainly on MTB and gravel rides and the occasional road ride.
Works great, almost too nice to wear everyday but I do anyway. Loose enough to wear over a T-shirt, tight enough to wear as a base layer. Looking forward to taking it along bikepacking/camping.
The Escalator Merino Crew is my new favorite base layer. The interior is velvety smooth and the seams are unnoticeable during movement. I’m 165lb/ 5’10” and the medium fits perfect. Just the right length in the arms and torso and form fitting so as to make layering under a vest or Icon a perfect match. I mountain bike with this as a stand alone and it regulates body temperature just right when temps are between 30-60 degrees here in Northern CA. Yet another stellar job putting form, function, style, and comfort together in this base layer that stands above the rest.
This is my second Escalator merino shirt. I purchased a large the first time and it is slightly too snug/tight. I went with an extra large and I like the fit much better. I’m 6’1 200 lbs with broad shoulders so the fit is much better. Wish I could return the large for an extra large cuz the shirts are awesome.
