Overview

The Xenolith is an insulating technical mid-layer inspired by traditional alpine guide sweaters. It packs phenomenal warmth and yet is so understated and breathable that it moves between trail, office and café as easily as it slips on.

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 Hima-Layer™ Yardang 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.

Our Fit Is Unique To kora

Our base layers conform to the contours of the body.

Love it

Absolutely love this jumper. Ski instructor in Switzerland I hardly took it off the whole winter . Not bulky under my jacket like other mid layers, very comfortable and breathable for cross country and warm enough for sitting on a terrace. Love the green colour.

Excellent

Perfect fit medium for me who is 173 cm and 75 kg. The sweater is warm but no too warm when you wandering. The only problem is that I will never take it off...

Go to piece all winter

This has become my all time favorite piece of mid layer. Deceptively warm for its lack of bulk. Couple this with my Shola and an gortex shell and I was fine tele skiing down to -5 degrees F. My other fleeces are now just taking up space on the shelf. I’ve used it as a stand alone next to skin in the Spring and Fall for hikes when it is in that in between temps. The extra long zips on both the Shola and the Xenolithn are great for venting as these are WARM. Only ding is a lack of interior breast pocket.

Excellent Piece w/One Subtle Criticism

I've worn this item in a variety of work/play situations. Delivers comfort and warmth w/o overheating. If you're considering a purchase, the "grey" is not as smokey, or dark, as it appeared in the images on my monitor. The actual piece has more green than I expected. Subtle, but worth noting.

On itchiness, I experienced this as well, but with a short-sleeved base layer, the itching is significantly reduced. I also found it diminished with usage, almost as if the wool is still fresh/raw and needs wear to soften.

Amazing

Amazingly warm, light, and breathable. Pricey but worth every penny.
