Super soft and well made!

I'm a very cold sleeper, but also don't get extremes here in SoCal. I wanted another base layer, and was attracted to Yak wool, as reportedly warmer then Merino wool. Thus, found Kora. This is an awesome shirt, and appreciate the half-zip for venting. Although I'm still undecided if this is warmer then my Smartwool 100% Merino wool mid-level base layer, as that is thicker weave and heavier, this is my new favorite! I'm very pleased, and shipping was incredibly fast!!! Thanks, Kora!

2nd Kora Garment

This is my second Kora garment (the 1st was a short-sleeve shirt). Like my short-sleeve shirt, I am quite impressed with the quality of the material, the sewing, and the general look of the garment. It also has a great feel whether it is dry or completely soaked. The deciding factor for me was the ethical approach of this company. Overall, a great investment.

Definitely worth the money!

This review applies to the Shola 230 zip, crew and leggings. Simply the best base layers I have experienced. Warmer, softer, and according to my better half, much better looking. I plan to buy a second set as soon as I can. 6 stars!

Great base layer for hiking

Bought this originally for downhill skiing but tried it out hiking. Usually I don’t want zippers then (weight penalty and not as comfortable when sleeping in it) but it was really great and didn’t bother me at all in the sleeping bag. Kept me warm enough and had a really soft feeling.

Light and warm, with awesome customer service.

I purchased this item for my wife as a gift. In her own words, here's what she thought about it: As a person who easily gets cold, this was a great buy for its claims of more warmth than Merino wool. Having a product like this that is light, smooth and more warm was very comfortable to wear. It is cool on first few mins of wear but quickly warms up. While it is warm, the wind will still pass through. This just means I have to cover with an outer layer. However, there was an instance wherein I only had this one layer on and my husband needed 2 layers outdoors. I also feel that my skin is able to breathe with this fabric and it not being clingy on the skin should I break a sweat. Having a neck zip for temperature regulation is a bonus for this garment. Note for neck comfort, for my 5 foot and 105 lb frame with measured neck circumference of 13 inches and who usually wears a size small clothing, Medium Shola 230 Zip with 14 inch neck circumference was more comforable on the neck compared to the small Shola 230 Zip which had 13 inch neck circumference as well. While the product is really good, we also truly loved Kora's after-sales customer service! We needed a size exchange and Beth, one of their wonderful team members, was warm, understanding, and quick with assisting us to make sure everything was right so that we were 100% satisfied. We wish all companies' customer care teams were as nice as her. Overall, I am truly satisfied with this purchase for its beneficial offerings, material uniqueness, clean looking style, and shopping experience. They definitely won a repeat customer in us.
