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.

Great Mid Layer

Great Mid Layer that breathes well, and seems to be really well made. Sizing is a little off for North American consumers, I opted for a size up, torso fits well, sleeves are long. Inner zipped pocket has room for an ID, credit card, key fob, that's about it.

Kora Sweater

Really well made product...I have a couple of the lighter weight base layers that have torn from wear but this sweater is super strong and really comfortable

Burly mid layer with strange design

I was surprised to find that the polartec alpha was on the back and sides the garment. I thought the front would have it and the back and sides just be the yak/wool fabric. That makes sense to me for ventilation and warmth protecting the front/chest. The internal chest pocket is small probably only able to hold a car fob. The sizing is European. I sized up and it is relatively snug or trim in the body and tight or a little short in arm length. I am 6'0" 150 lbs. I'm a small in USA brands (plus Arc'teryx and Norrona) and a medium in Rab and Mammut. Still, I think it will work for me. I plan to use it snowshoeing on cold days layering underneath a Goretex one piece suit

Outstanding Mid-layer !!!

Perfect mid-layer for cool to cold climates.
Love the long zipper on the front to dump heat quickly and the thumb loops are a bonus. The fabric is super soft, toasty warm and the fitment of the sweeter is good . (I am a large size but opted for a XL and it fits well). Its just a little tight in the arms and fore arm area but is not really an issue.
Its highly breathable due to is amazing mix of fabrics, especially when you start working hard in the icy Blue Mountains of Australia. You don't need to keep changing garments for varying temperatures.
The garment gives an excellent range of moment all round and the Epodite Green color is perfect for all occasions.
This is now my go-to sweater especially when going bush !!

Gets the job done

This is now my go to sweater for cold days, snug fit but very comfortable, keeps me warm but not too hot across a wide range of temperatures and activities, don't have to constantly remove and add layers with this sweater. Size S is a good fit if you have a smaller frame, short arms like me.
