Review Details - Shola 230 Zip
Product Review (submitted on January 18, 2018):
I purchased this item for my wife as a gift. In her own words, here's what she thought about it:
As a person who easily gets cold, this was a great buy for its claims of more warmth than Merino wool. Having a product like this that is light, smooth and more warm was very comfortable to wear. It is cool on first few mins of wear but quickly warms up. While it is warm, the wind will still pass through. This just means I have to cover with an outer layer. However, there was an instance wherein I only had this one layer on and my husband needed 2 layers outdoors. I also feel that my skin is able to breathe with this fabric and it not being clingy on the skin should I break a sweat.
Having a neck zip for temperature regulation is a bonus for this garment. Note for neck comfort, for my 5 foot and 105 lb frame with measured neck circumference of 13 inches and who usually wears a size small clothing, Medium Shola 230 Zip with 14 inch neck circumference was more comforable on the neck compared to the small Shola 230 Zip which had 13 inch neck circumference as well.
While the product is really good, we also truly loved Kora's after-sales customer service! We needed a size exchange and Beth, one of their wonderful team members, was warm, understanding, and quick with assisting us to make sure everything was right so that we were 100% satisfied. We wish all companies' customer care teams were as nice as her.
Overall, I am truly satisfied with this purchase for its beneficial offerings, material uniqueness, clean looking style, and shopping experience. They definitely won a repeat customer in us.
