Men's Shola 230 Leggings

Stay wonderfully warm on chilly days in our base layer leggings. When you step up the pace they’ll keep you cool and dry. That’s down to the remarkable temperature-regulating properties of Hima-Layer™ Original 230, our luxuriously soft yak wool fabric. It's naturally odour-resistant too.

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.

The Hima-Layer Difference


Yaks live comfortably at 16,000 feet in the freezing-cold Himalayas—kept warm by their natural coat of wool. The secret to yak wool’s incredible warmth-for-weight is that the fibre is hollow, trapping more air next to the body. This is why Kora’s Hima-Layer Original 230 fabric is warmer, weight-for-weight, than traditional merino fabrics - up to 40% warmer. Move aside, Sheep.


Yak wool is softer than soft—making it the ideal baselayer and midlayer material. Aside from our unique performance fabrics, yak wool more frequently used as an alternative to cashmere. Whether you’re embarking on a long, challenging day in the mountains, cruising the streets, or lounging at home, Kora’s Hima-Layer fabrics offer supreme comfort.


Thanks to yak wool’s hollow shape, and the inherent strength of the fibre, we are able to knit fabrics looser while maintaining the fabric’s durability. Air and water vapour escapes more easily between the knits, allowing the body to breathe more efficiently.

“The fabric never faltered across snowshoe hikes, ski tours and alpine days, bike rides and snowy mountainside beer drinking sessions. Neither did chafing ever come calling"

"These are, without a doubt, the most comfortable next to skin (NtS) bottoms I have ever worn."

""Much like the tops, the leggings offer a lightweight, athletic cut that fits under most layers without adding extra bulk.""
