Whether shielding you from a brisk morning fog or brought along as insurance against the unexpected, the King Ridge Windbreaker has just the right balance - nothing we'd want to add, and nothing we'd take away, either. Made from imported materials. Sewn in California.
"This is the ideal gift for the die-hard, all-season cyclist. Kitsbow's windbreaker has all the durable specs: It's packable, reflective, and features a grippy hem to keep the tail in place to avoid mud splatter. We especially love its detailing: The zipper is slightly askew to prevent any conflict with your Adam's apple, while the collar has a soft knit at the back of the neck to cut back on chafing. And the sleeves are designed to deliver a rattle-free ride. "
"A stowable windbreaker is a riding essential, protecting you from the unexpected that lurks three ridges and two pressure systems beyond. Kitsbow’s King Ridge Windbreaker is tailored for bare-bones riding: an athletic fit that doesn’t flap in the wind, an offset zipper with a soft-knit collar that prevents chafing, and a DWR finished material that all but disappears in your pocket."
I wanted a decent, packable jacket to carry when road riding in the wet winter. This jacket has exceed my expectations. It's small, reasonably water resistant and looks good. The build quality is excellent.
The jacket fits me well, but is really loud when riding, even at moderate speeds. There is a lot of flapping of fabric in the back of the shoulders. It has good sleeve and torso length, but I guess is too loose around the shoulders. I have fairly broad shoulders and an athletic build. I'm 5'11" and 160 lbs. I am actually wondering if I can return it or swap it for another item. I don't know about going for a smaller size because then it may be too short in the arms. Please advise. thanks
Everything Kitsbow makes is phenomenal. This lightweight jacket is perfect when the temps are a little chilly.
Light weight and easy to store. Nice when there is a little chill in the air.
Was a little snug and I went up a size for this purchase.
