Escalator Merino Henley
Made Just For You
ELEVATE YOUR COMFORT
The Escalator Merino Henley features an extremely adaptable dual-facing merino fabric. The (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.
Along with the companion product, the Lory Merino Henley (the women's fit) the Escalator is one of our most popular products -- and a staff favorite. It is packs tiny and light, perfect as a mid-layer or light sweater on the bike, traveling in a plane, or headed into a restaurant. Some skin-sensitive users report this is the one wool they can wear without irritation.

Great base layer, super soft against the skin
Love this shirt - fits well, super-soft against the skin as a base layer. Have worn it in several sweaty scenarios - running outside in the winter, skinning uphill - and it has performed great, just as Merino should, but also softer than I was expecting. Can't speak to long-term durability yet, but I find myself wearing it a lot.
The Goldilocks Shirt
I'm not big on writing reviews but I'm a huge gear geek and a long-time fan / customer of Kitsbow. Outside of cycling, I also do a lot of backpacking, paddlesports, etc in the outdoors and I've tried lots of different 'base' layers...this has become my all-time favorite piece of clothing. I say 'base' because I've used it next skin and over another layer and it works great both ways...but it really is amazing next to skin. I visited Kitsbow on a summer roadtrip this summer and they had a few of these out, on sale, in a size that was one too big for me. But after trying it on, I had to have it...the bagginess of it is as much of a plus as a detriment. I bought two, one 'henley' (with buttons) and one without. I found myself grabbing it for everything including lounging around the house and sleeping. I've subsequently bought two more and have basically been living in these...my wife is just about done listening to me go on about the virtues of this shirt. I love it...figured I'd tell other people about it, too. I don't know how this shirt could disappoint. I'd suggest that if you're on the fence about sizing, to size up relative to other Kitsbow shirts.
Great all-conditions layer
We wore these almost exclusively during a week long video shoot in every type of weather that Colombia could throw at us: chilly high altitude mornings, dumping thunderstorms, 95 degree heat with 100% humidity. Was blown away at how well they tackled them all. Got a bit toasty in the desert, but they wicked exceptionally well, dried super fast, and didn't stink even after a full day of running around with cameras. An amazing all-purpose travel shirt. Fit is snug, so size up if you want a more casual fit.
Great layering piece
This is a good top. It’s a little heavier weight than some of the Kitsbow tops, and I tend to wear it over a t-shirt as a warm-me-up layer. It’s stylish and has been durable. A solid piece.
Escalator Merino Henley - fantastic
A great garment all around. Super well made - great stitching, materials, cut, aesthetics. Fabric is very comfortable. Haven’t used it yet for workouts/rides, but imagine it will perform well with wicking and all that when I do. Fits true to size for a form fit. I’m 5’10”, 170 lb and typically wear a medium for a closer fit. I got this in a medium and is well-fitted; not quite snug, but close. Will do well for layering, and I’m happy with that size. Could also go with a large for more of a loose fit for lounging around. Would highly recommend.
