Winter-Worthy Outdoor Apparel

This Yak Wool Zip Top Offers Unmatched Performance and Comfort

— September 23, 2019 — Fashion
For seasonal outdoor enthusiasts, the impending end of summer marks a time of doom and gloom, but for those whose love for the outdoors shines even when the sun isn't, there's simply no piece of apparel that will revolutionize their trysts with nature as much as Kora's Shola 230 yak wool zip top.

Whilst merino has long been the favoured material of hikers, climbers, cyclists and other all-weather athletes, it simply doesn't match the performance, comfort and flexibility of Kora's proprietary Hima-Layer Original 230 fabric, a technical garment made using pure Himalayan yak wool favoured by the nomads of the Qinghai Tibet plateau, who have been tackling extremely cold weather for centuries, if not millennia.

This yak wool-based product has an extraordinarily wide range of comfort in that it keeps you warm in cold weather, but also gently switches to a more cooler feel when the outside temperature begins to climb. When worn as a base layer, Kora's yak wool zip top offers a fabulous foundation for heavier jackets without interfering in their intended fit and function, while its soft-as-cashmere texture ensures that your skin won't ever be irritated. When worn in relatively warmer spring conditions, the zip top offers the advantage of embedded UPF40 sun protection as well as breathability and moisture-wicking performance far out of the reach of competitor products.

In addition to the excellence of the material, the Shola 230 yak wool zip top has also been thoughtfully designed for every outdoor situation, with a long front zipper allowing for manual thermal control, and extended neck and sleeve edges ensuring that cold drafts don't infiltrate into your skin. Available in men's and women's fits, the comfort and performance of this zip top in varying degrees of cold conditions simply has to be experienced to be believed.

At a price of $160, Kora has well and truly positioned the Shola 230 yak wool zip top as a top-of-the-line, high-performance cold weather zip top, which is why it's truly incredible yet wholly accurate to opine that the price represents a bargain.
