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.

Icon- Im pressed in the first week!

I just got my Icon last week, so I will follow this up with a longer-term review after I've had more time with it. So far, I love it. It's currently my favorite article of clothing, on and off the bike! Construction is top notch, fabric weight is ideal as an outer layer for cool weather rides (only have 2 rides in so far...)

Perfect as always

I've had the original Icon for many years now. Always wanted a more relaxed fit. Now we have it. These last forever and are a key piece for most of the year here in northern Maine. Heck I liked it so much I ordered an extra. You really cannot go wrong with this. If your on the fence get off and order one. There's no way you'll regret it!

The best icon yet

The new athletic fit is great. Much better as a outer layer piece. Love it!

The Legendary Icon

I finally invested in an Icon after a few years of indecision. The arrival of the Relaxed Fit style was the key for me, and it is wonderful. Great on and off the bike. Good for autumn and winter riding - and apres-ride. Runs large…I wear an XL in most Kitsbow, but went all the way down too a medium for this shirt and it fits perfectly.

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.
