Overview

Now enhanced for even greater comfort. The Xenolith is an insulating technical mid-layer inspired by traditional alpine guide sweaters and reimagined for the modern mountain adventurer.

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 recycled Polartec® Alpha® - a hi-tech alternative to down and fleece insulation - in the body and at the top of the sleeves to enhance the wool’s natural warmth and breathability.

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.
Our mid layers are sized to wear over a base layer.

Xenolith Sweater

This sweater is thin but very warm over a base layer. Goes great under the Azog jacket. I have several of the Kora products and though expensive have thought they were all well made products and because of wool material worked well. Like any of the active stuff in my opinion if you are going to just be sitting in the cold and not active then thicker materials may benefit you more but for activities it can't be beat.

Slightly disappointing

The sizing was significantly out. My partner has a Kora short-sleeved top in Large which is a bit tight. So I bought the sweater in Large. It’s much too large round the middle and the sleeves are weirdly long (need rolling back 2 folds). He’s never encountered this problem with any item of clothing before. Also, note that it’s merino wool “with a dash of yak”, not yak’s wool as I had assumed for the price. But the stitching is high quality and the grey colour looks good.
