A Perfect Pairing

LYCRA® fibre is the special ingredient that makes it possible for KARRIMOR to create such a wide range of products that are both lightweight and durable. Thanks to LYCRA® fibre, the Xlite line offers a comfortable, flexible fit that is designed to move freely without limits. Many Xlite garments offer enhanced comfort by delivering additional benefits like breathability, lightweight insulation to keep the wearer warm and dry in the cold, and moisture management to stay cool and dry when it’s hot.

A Shared History of Innovation

Founded in 1946, KARRIMOR has a history of innovation and has often led the industry in its quest to make high-quality, lightweight clothing and gear for outdoor adventures. To ensure all its gear is expedition-ready, the brand relies on the input of elite athletes who field test apparel and equipment in some of the world’s harshest conditions. Both KARRIMOR and LYCRA® fibre enjoy a reputation for excellence, and are famous for their ability to create industry-leading products using cutting-edge technology.
