A study by Sheffield Hallam University’s Centre for Sport & Exercise Science has shown that when exercising in low temperatures, base layers made with Hima-Layer™ Shola maintain core body temperature better than synthetic or merino base layers. During the test, researchers measured the surface temperature of the test subjects' skin to see how much heat they were losing while running. The test subjects who wore yak wool lost an average of just -3.5˚C, compared to a -6˚C drop when wearing merino and -8˚C when wearing polyester.
The less energy you burn to stay warm, the more you can dedicate to movement. So if you plan to exercise in cold conditions, kora base layers are your best choice.
Exceptional. Cut to an athletic fit, this 100% Yak Wool layer is warm, quick drying, and comfortable
