These past few cut and sew pieces from Kitsbow are some of my favorite apparel items to surface in the bike industry. The Alpine Snap Jacket is an new spin on a classic staple for both touring or mountain biking, as well as general outdoor activities. While other companies use down, Kitsbow uses Polartec® Alpha insulation, originally designed for the United States Special Forces, which will keep you warm whether you’re wet or dry, without having to remove layers.
The pricepoint ain’t exactly cheap, but the Alpine Snap Jacket is made in Vancouver, Canada and looks like it’ll be a piece you’ll be holding onto for a while.
