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.

Product Description
Product Design

"It breathes well when working up a sweat and it doesn’t build up moisture. Plus it zips up nicely with a cozy, lightweight hood that can go over a hat or under a helmet, and the sleeves come down long enough with the thumbholes to add a little extra warmth.”

I got one of these in XL when launched. First impression was it packs small and seemed to be more comfortable than my 200 weight fleece jacket. I've worn it out walking on the hills, and around town. It's a very useful bit of gear. It's a good fit , very warm, so the full length zip helps with temp control and the sleeves are quite tight fitting. The thumb limbs are great and when in use keep the chill from running up your sleeves.
great jacket
