Creating an all natural layering system
Created to complement our base layer fabric (the Original 230), Stratam 350 is designed for warmth and comfort and offers exceptional breathability and moisture management.
A high quotient of yak wool in a terry loop construction on the inside traps air for warmth and provides excellent wicking properties. On the outside, environmentally friendly Dupont Sorona, a biopolymer made from corn starch, creates a smooth surface, offering further protection from the elements while supporting breathability and moisture management.
Tested at both the North and South Poles and in mountain ranges across the world, the Stratam 350 has proven itself time and again in extreme conditions. That said, its versatility is such that it is perfect for everyday use, whether running errands in town or post workout.
Whatever you do, wherever you go, do it in the comfort of Hima-Layer Stratam 350.

is an innovative dual layer fabric designed for use in mid-layers. It features superfine yak wool on the inside and DuPont™ Sorona®, a renewably-sourced biopolymer, on the outside.
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™ Original 230 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.
The yak wool’s warmth and ability to endure day-after-day wear with fluctuating temperatures makes it a must. It also remains a fabric that is my base layer on most days just ‘living’ here in Shangri-La.
