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.

Light weight hoodie with lots of warmth

The sewing is top notch as with all Kitsbow gear. The material is lightweight and breathable. The extra material on the elbows is perfect. This is not a dense wind blocking hoodie. The material is super soft next to skin. The zippers have been working smoothly and flawless. The only knock is the sizing. I am 5'7" 145 lbs 37" chest and went with the small sizing but the arm length is longer than I like and the sleeves feel like they twist on you so they don't lay perfectly on your wrists. This could just be my build as others may like longer arms. I would consider this a 'regular' fit vs slim or baggy. I wear this almost daily. I have 2 icon shirts (5 stars!) as well and rotate all 3 during fall/winter/spring!

Fully Functional and Fashionable, Go To Hoodie On and Off The Bike

The Kitsuma Merino Hoodie was the very first Kitsbow piece I ever purchased. Years later, I am wearing it as I write this review. In hindsight, this was the "gateway" piece that opened the door to a new world of the highest quality, most functional and fashionable, on and off the bike cycling apparel. My grey Kitsuma Hoodie is the "OG," is soft, warm (but it is merino so it still breathes) and ergonomic for days on the bike. On top of that, it remains comfortable and stylish for all off the bike occasions. Fast forward 7 years and I now own countless Kitsbow pieces and both the Navy Kitsuma Hoodie and just recently purchased the Black. Why? Because it is AWESOME! The current version of the Kitsuma is softer, warmer (but still breathable) and perfect in every way, both on and off the bike. Kitsbow added an protective elbow (similar to the Icon) for extra durability as well as some very subtle reflective strips on the shoulders and lower back. There is also a zippered sides pockets and one on the hip (for your phone and/or a gel). Size runs true to size chart. As with all Kitsbow products, they have paid so much attention to the subtle details to create the most functional hoodie you will ever own. Cheers Kitsbow!

The hoodie for the non-hoodie crowd

I'm not a hoodie guy, but I LOVE this hoodie. - Purchase date: November 2020 - Size: Large - Color: Black - Type of use: casual, commute - Frequency of use: weekly Strengths: - Weight: light, breathable, but keeps me warm when I need it to - Durability: so far this thing has been way more durable that I expected given the light weight. The elbow patches are clutch - Feel: that sweet sweet feel of merino on my dewy skin. It’s not really dewy, but I always liked that saying - Fit: mmm-mmm-mmm. It hugs just right, moves with you, and the high-neck zip is perfect. - MERINO! God bless that magical anti-funk fabric. Opportunities for improvement: - More colors - Multiple weights for the seasons Recommend: Yes

This thing is awesome!

On or off the bike it performs and looks the part. Only had it a short time but the first ride was 32ish degrees and cold and I had this with a base layer and I was perfect for a trail ride! I'm usually in between L and XL and the XL fit perfectly while giving me layering options for ****** cold rides!
