Just right

I've been wearing Kitsbow since meeting Charlie and Zander at Sea Otter back in 2012 or 2013. I remember being blown away at the quality, build, and aesthetic of their very first pair of shorts. I'm still wearing those A/M Shorts on every ride, and I've been adding new pieces to my collection ever since. My motto for gear is "Buy it right, buy it once." That philosophy allows me to spend a bit more on the right piece of gear - the one that's the best for the job that's going to last. Kitsbow fits the bill every time. The Wind Vest is my most recent purchase and it fits right into their long line of quality pieces of gear. I wear a Size Medium in just about everything (5' 9", 170lbs, wide shoulders), and this vest in Medium fits perfectly. The bright blue color accents are so awesome, as is the zipper opening for grabbing food from your jersey pockets. I've been wearing it on every ride this spring here in Bend, OR, where the weather has been 40-55 degrees. Over a long sleeved jersey, it's kept me warm in those temps - a tall order for such a lightweight piece of clothing. Nicely done, Kitsbow!

The perfect vest

This vest is great I keep it in my bike bag at all times. The side zips are a great feature for easy access and the vent in the back keeps me from overheating. Like all litsbow products I have I’m thoroughly impressed!

Not your typical wind breaker

I loved the color of this vest for a while, but I did not expect that it would do such a nice job on the fit, wind block, but actually repels water on light rain. This worked really well with my merino ride tee, arm warmers, and the vest. Perfect temperature control for a up and down 45 degree ride.

Really nice - but a comment about fit

Very sharp looking and functional. Fit advice: I am 6' 1.5". I weigh about 216. I have more of a burly mountain biker body than that of a rail thin roadie. While in many garments I wear XL, I took the advice of another reviewer and sized up to XXL. Good thing! The XXL fits snugly and fine. But an XL would have been too tight/small. If you have any doubts, size up.
