I have one of the first Kitsbow tops, can’t remember the name, it has quilted shoulder and elbow pads in XXL fits perfect. Ordered the Kitsuma in XL and it runs large, if I hadn’t been in the UK I would have returned for a smaller size.
This review is for the designers as well as future buyers. I owned the first generation of this hoody (see pictures, grey hoody) & have had it for years. I literally wear it almost everyday year round in Montana. It is turning to dust as I wear the **** out of it. It's warm, comfortable, & looks great. This new version (pictured in blue) is really a significant drop off from the past hoody. The new version eliminated the denser material around the waist & sleeves, which gave the garment more structure & a more tailored fit. The zipper on mine seems to be sewn on wrong as the zipper sits wavy on my chest when zipped up & the bottom of the garment sticks out around my waist & generally looks dumpy. The torso of the garment just doesn't fit as tailored as the previous version and just seems a bit boxy. A few recommendations for future iterations: bald men & those of us who shave would be thrilled to see you retire the synthetic mesh on the hood (and pockets) as it irritates the **** outta our sensitive skin. The worlds best material for next to skin comfort, MERINO WOOL. Not a fishing net. The front pockets need zippers. As for the thumb holes on sleeves. I mean come on. Even the guy who originally thought of this idea doesn't even use the thumb holes as they are torture devices. Even his mom thinks those holes were a ****** idea. Forever retire these thumb traps.
Some of my favorite FALL gear. Follow the sizing guide: I’m larger chest so this is XXL where the shirts were XL
I recently bought my second Kitsuma Hoodie because I wear the first one 24/7, and it’s 5 years old or so .. Riding, ride commuting, midlayer for skiing, hiking , hanging out , whatever .. This thing is the best , so now I have two..
I had high expectations for the Kitsuma hoody. Hoody's are like bright colored underwear, they need to feel just right, then they provide so much function. The hoody is one of the most sentimental garments; brings back so many memories of teenage shenanigans and snuggly coziness. The Kitsuma weight is lighter than I thought. But the wool is so warm. It's a great mix of technical and lax. Looks great. Hood is dialed and thumb holes are a big win- forget the gloves and stay warm. Highly recommended. You'll have it forever. Sizing - a bit loose. I'm an average 5'10" semi fit dad male, Size Small is perfect with plenty of room for layering under and over. Sleeves on the long side- sleeve rolled up 1x most of the time. Great length. Only downside: more colors please! (ooh I'd like the wine red one) . Not technical enough for hard sweaty riding. Not meant for that though. And perhaps crazy, but a small 3-4" subtle pit zip for venting, could be a great addition.
