Icon Shirt Relaxed Athletic Fit

The Icon Shirt Relaxed Athletic Fit is the result of an eight year quest to create the most versatile and best fitting outdoor shirt we could imagine.

The Pendleton® wool fabric is both soft and tough; and regulates temperature naturally, maximizing comfort as conditions change, making it perfect for traveling light.

We've designed the Relaxed Athletic Fit as an ideal Shirt-jacket fit. Cut with just enough room in the shoulders and chest for layering, while allowing for excellent range of motion and a moderately tailored look.

If you normally wear a Signature Fit, consider adding a Relaxed Athletic Fit to your lineup for use as a perfect outer-layer shirt or light jacket.

Make Mine Now means when you buy it, we'll make it. Production time ranges from a day to a week (and sometimes longer, under heavy demand). We stay in touch by email, and your purchase date determines your place in line. The Made to Order approach ensures minimum waste, maximum satisfaction.

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.

What a great shirt!

This is, without a doubt, the best made and highest quality shirt I have ever owned. It has many thoughtful details and the fabric is really handsome and feels great. I look forward to using this one a very long time-and to getting another soon.

My favorite shirt

The Icon Relaxed Athletic fit is the perfect comfy shirt. It’s perfect for these cold winter Nor Cal mornings. The wool is soft and cozy yet still burly strong. The shirt has a great fit and like all Kitsbow gear is loaded with cool features such as these cool snaps that I can easily snap and unsnap with gloves on, the cuffs are adjustable with room for my watch, and there are vents at the shoulders just to name a few. I am in love with this shirt.

Forever Shirt

Looking forward to many years in this exceptionally made garment. I have always been a Pendleton guy and the Kitsbow contribution brought it into the present day with their innovative redesign of a classic. It is now a favorite amongst Filson, Pendleton and now Kitsbow. Nice work.

Badass shirt, I want to wear it everyday!

Use it mainly casual, sometimes to work when I want to be casual. Comfortable shirt with and without a layer under. Has great movement, it’s warm, and bc they look awesome, I get nothing but compliments.

Yes. It really is that good.

Icons rule. For riding and civilian life they keep you warm, look good, and perform. The plastic snaps don’t rust and make it easy to open the shirt while riding to regulate temperature. The vents and articulated shoulders in the back keep you cool but are cleverly hidden. It’s a technical improvement on a classic shirt that is extremely well executed. When used with an escalator and layered with an Arcana, Alpha snap or Vertigo, it will give you the ability to ride in a wide range of colder temps, be comfortable, and look good while doing so. Some important sizing notes: my first icon was a v1, XL. Fit great. Later on, wanted another color and waited until my size was in stock. This was a v2, and was a bit tighter in the shoulders than the same size in v1. I called up Kitsbow, who are super awesome with customer service as well as sound advice. They had just come out with the relaxed fit icons, and after describing the fit, recommended a relaxed fit size L. And they were right - that got it DONE. Fast forward to recent times - was obsessed enough with the icon to get the one last color I wanted. This was also a relaxed L. This one fit a bit better than the earlier one - and it’s not that the earlier one fit badly, it’s just that this one was a bit better fit. I’m sure as time goes on, there are refinements to be made on all things. If you’re looking at the icon relaxed fit and don’t have one - add it now to your cart.
