Kitsbow’s Hybrid Icon Flannel Shirt Supports More Weather Conditions

Kitsbow Cycling Apparel announces today another variation of the venerable Icon Flannel Shirt. From the blueprints of Kitsbow’s classic Pendleton Wool Icon, the Hybrid Icon Shirt adds an additional layer of durable, wind-blocking, water- and abrasion-resistant fabric right where you need it most – across the chest and shoulders.

“We’ve received a number of requests for an Icon with this capability,” said David Billstrom, one of the leaders at employee-owned Kitsbow. “Our product team thinks this will be the hardest-working Icon yet.”

The Icon Shirt is designed to be the best fitting and looking wool shirt you will ever own. The fabric placement in the Hybrid Icon is designed to take the shirt into more rugged and hardworking endeavors. The comfort and fit of the Icon Shirt’s vented gussets mean this shirt never binds across the back of your shoulders while you ride, cut firewood or type a keyboard. The front snaps and rear vents allow you to adjust the temperature in warmer or cooler conditions throughout the day.

An added layer of four-way stretch nylon twill to the chest and shoulders provides additional wind-blocking warmth and durability. Wool gussets at the underarm ensure all the moisture-wicking and odor protection of our classic wool Icons.

The Hybrid Icon Shirt is offered in two fits for men (Signature Fit and Relaxed Athletic Fit) and a single fit for women (Icon Shirt for Women). The Signature Fit features fitted shoulders and a fitted torso. It is slimmer to the body and is a more traditional true-to-size garment. The Icon Shirt for Women is designed with the female frame in mind to enhance the body shape, with room in the chest and hips.

The Relaxed Athletic Fit often selected by men is cut with more room in the shoulders and chest allowing for a range of motion and a moderately tailored look. It’s great for layering and for the shirt jacket look.

The Icon for Women, Signature Fit, and Relaxed Athletic Fit are offered in three lengths: Regular, Tall, and Short. All four fits are available in sizes XS-XXL.
