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.

Thank you kora for keeping me warm

Thank you kora for keeping me warm and protected on this windy headland, the base layers and my Xenolith absolutely nailed it and I didn't over heat once. A very happy lady.

Amazing!

This sweater is amazing! Great mid-layer for just about anything- hiking, sailing, skiing, traveling. It’s classy, warm, and breathable. The feels really luxurious, but it’s also really durable, so it is great for going out on the town and getting outdoors. I’m 5’10”, 120 lbs, and thin, and the small sweater fits me somewhat loosely around the torso without looking bulky or sloppy.

My go to!

Love this sweater. I bought for a mid layer but like it better as base layer. Perfect for winter hiking. It wicks amazingly well. It’s soft and cozy and the green with purple accents is beautiful. Only con, the collar is very snug when zipped up all the way.

Perfect!

Purchased an the green Xenolith fo my wife as a Valentine's gift. After consulting with customer service regarding sizing (she is 5'2", lean having broad shoulders for her height), I ordered an XS in green. It arrived within the week to the U.S. It looks great and the finish is impeccable. My wife tells me it is comfortable and warm which give the polar vortex behaviour, has already been tested at -7 degrees C. The suggestion has been made that gray would be nice also.

Great mid layer

For very cold days This top is perfect over my LS Shola Zip that I bought last year. My favorite top that I wear every day is the LS Shola zip; it is so warm and cozy. The amazing thing about my recent purchase was that I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived on Tuesday having come from Hong Kong to Seattle in just 2 days! And this was the week before Christmas.
