Kitsbow Mountain Bike Apparel

Apparel Sea Otter Classic

Product Descriptions from the Manufacturer:

All Mountain Soft Shell Short

- tailored profile in nine different even and odd waist measurements.
- Schoeller-dryskin: a durable and abrasion-resistant, Swiss soft-shell with a soft, and lightly brushed interior

Merino Base Short

- New Zealand Merino wool for next-to-skin comfort.
- Soft fibers have been blended with nylon and spandex to create a highly capable, yet fitted fabric layer that wicks away moisture and keeps you cool and dry even when paired beneath your outer short.
- Italian-made, Cytech EIT (Elastic Interface Technology) insert

Sastan Jersey

- The fabric utilizes two distinct yarns: the outer face is woven from Cordura, and the inner, from a fine merino wool.
- Pockets located to the side since most riders will be using hydration packs.

Mixed Shell

- Windproof, breathable, and highly water resistant
- Sleeves are Schoeller-USP (Ultralight-Soft Protection): a lighter, but hardy shell fabric with excellent water resistance.
All Are Made in Vancouver

    Longevity justifications ??? OK let’s do the math. I am wearing Mt Borah shorts that I paid $60 for (which is vastly more than I typically spend). I have been wearing them for nearly 4 years and I ride plenty. They are almost as new in appearance, hard to say when they will need replacing, but lets say after eight years. So I would break even on these Kitzbow shorts after about 50 years. THE PRICES ARE ABSURD.
