I first bought the Kitsbow Icon in 2014 and out of all my apparel, both on and off the bike, it’s become a staple. As soon as the temps drop, it becomes my go-to mountain bike or bike touring jacket. I’ve taken spills, experienced thrills and everything in between with it. It’s a true example of a heritage piece, in a modern world where everything is disposable. Made in the USA from Oregon-made Pendleton wool with Schoeller®-shape 3XDRY abrasion panels and built to last.
My point is, the Kitsbow Icon is the best flannel I’ve ever owned and there’s nothing I’d change about it. Kitsbow agrees, although they do offer new colors each year… The Icon is back in stock at Kitsbow.
These features were added in the V2 Icon:
NEW Increased opening of cuffs to accommodate a watch
NEW Improved coverage of patches
NEW Improved articulation of shoulder vents (and made sure they don’t pooch out)
NEW Added some reflectivity for night safety
