Combining the benefits of natural performance wools, Yak wool, and Merino with Polartec Alpha insulation, this lightweight sweater has an ergonomic fit, allowing freedom of movement.
Made with our new Hima-Layer™ Yardang 240 fabric, a Merino-Yak wool blend, the Xenolith is designed to help you maintain a comfortable body temperature during intense exercise on the mountain.
We’ve added Polartec Alpha in the body and at the top of the sleeves to enhance the wool’s natural warmth and breathability. Polartec Alpha is a hi-tech alternative to down and fleece insulation.
Unlike down, it’s extremely breathable, insulates even when wet and dries quickly. Unlike fleece, it packs down small. It’s quiet too - no rustling noises as you move.
We’ve added a host of useful features such as thumb loops, an extra long zip for ventilation and a zipped inside pocket for stashing keys, sun cream or cell phone.
