Technical base layer for cold weather

The ultimate cold weather base layer. Soft next to the skin, high yak wool content helps to trap warmth whilst wool's natural properties will allow your skin to breathe. Reinforced panels add durability where it's needed most.

Giving back to the Himalayan nomads

kora was founded with the aim of supporting the communities of the Kegawa Herders' Cooperative, by buying their yak wool directly to create our layers.

A collective of more than 90 families in the Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, our friends live all year around at 4,500m.

We buy this wool at a set mid-market rate throughout the buying season in order to offer price certainty, and in addition we pay a 10% stipend.

Live & love or return with our 35 day guarantee

We are so confident that you'll love your kora product that we offer a 35 day live & love or return guarantee*.

You can wear your kora pieces, and if you wish to return them for any reason you may do so for a refund*.

Met expectations

I recently purchased the Yushu bottoms. This purchase also included the Yushu top. My reason for purchasing was that I wanted a warm and proven wool base layer for a multi-species solo hunting adventure into the Wyoming (USA) backcountry from middle to late October 2022. These did not disappoint. I am 5'11" tall, 32" waist, and weigh in at a lean 184# . On me, size medium was not quite an athletic fit but yet not quire a relaxed fit. I would say more athletic in fit but not skin tight like, say, Under Armor Cold Gear. They were warm and their breathability was evident when hiking up 2000 feet in elevation under load. When I first put them on, I detected an ever-so-slight scratchy sensation. However, after a few minutes of wearing them, that disappeared. The Yushu bottoms (and tops) are an excellent choice, among the many wool brands available, for a base layer in cold weather conditions.

just what we were looking for

We are a family of hunters, and my son happened on your products 2 years ago. They love them, they keep them warm and dry. Which is especially needed in Wisconsin's cold and during hunting season. Better then any other product they have ever tried

These are great

I got these for my husband for Christmas as I have been really happy with the Kora products I’ve bought for myself. When I asked him how he liked his new thermals he replied they’re great. Are they comfy I asked. Yes he replied. They’re really good. We live in the Canadian Rockies and it get cold ( really cold) here. But we live here because we love to play outside and Kora is helping us to keep playing even when the daytime high is minus 25 - minus 30.

great pants for the trip

I used these pants for a winter bighorn sheep hunting trip up at 12,000 ft. they worked great. I have to say I wish I bought the top as well, it was my best base layer gear i brought!!!

Not very durable but keeps you warm.

How do I wear the Yushu Bottoms? I wear the yushu bottoms as a base layer for work in a warehouse freezer of -20C.

How do I layer? Underwear underneath the Yushu bottom and top. I layer over the yushu base layers with a zip up hoodie and a pair of joggers for mid-layers, and thermal/freezer/hi viz jacket and overalls as outer layers.

Warmth: 5/5 Stars.
This will definitely keeps you warm and help with wicking sweat away from your skin and keeping you dry.

Size: 5/5 Stars.
Fits true to size. I normally wear size small. Waist 29", height 5'7", 110 lb.

Durability: 1/5 Stars.
Unfortunately for me, I bought these pairs in July 2021 but only really started wearing them around September 2021 until now and there is already a tear around the right upper thigh area. I wash it along with the Yushu top once a week with mesh bag and delicate cycle based on the washing instruction. It is a shame I can't give this a high rating because of how expensive they were to purchase and quite disappointed at how long they lasted. Please see the Yushu LS Zip for my review on the top.

Original Conclusion: Rating 2/5 Stars

Revised Review Feb 17, 2022 below:

I was surprised to be contacted by Kora customer service after leaving this review. After a few back and forth e-mails about the issue of my Yushu Bottoms, we concluded that it was a defect and was possibly sewn with flawed fabric, so they sent me another pair. So far, the second pair has been holding up strong, I will update if there are any changes.

Kora's customer service is excellent and their product quality is outstanding, it was just unfortunately that I was unlucky with my first pair of bottoms.
