There is a saying, ‘Those whom the mountains truly call; they have no time to update their social media status’. Ok, we made that up. But, the mountains do call, and we know quite a few such folks who share a personal equation with snow-capped peaks. This tribe thrives from December to March because it’s the season for their all-time favourite activity, skiing. How do we know that? Because they are looking for the Kosha Adventure Gear – India’s best Skiing collection, to partner with on their wintry escapade.
Winter in Northern India is like no other. The pristine white Himalayas are the ideal landscape for skiing. Most of the mountaintops (Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir) have excellent accessibility and a range of varied slope heights that can give you an adrenaline rush. In recent times, skiing has become a preferred winter sport. No matter your level of expertise, this sport needs adept ski gear. Team Kosha saw the upsurge in this sport and realized no Indian brand provided adventure gear suited for this niche. That’s where our R&D team stepped in and what you have is a homegrown adventure gear brand for adults and children that keeps you comfortable and well equipped during your skiing experience.

BASE LAYER – Kosha Wool Thermals (Top and Long Bottoms)
Skiing is a high-energy activity that leaves you sweaty. The base layer sits in direct contact with the skin and absorbs or wicks away perspiration keeping you warm and dry. Made from 100% Merino Wool, Kosha’s Woolen Thermal wear has excellent thermal and moisture control properties.

MID-LAYER – Kosha Fleece-lined Insulating layer
A softshell or fleece is a popular choice for a mid-layer as it helps retain any escaping heat off the base layer, acting as insulation for warmth. Depending on the intensity of the season, on colder days, a fleece-lined top or sweatshirt will be more suitable. In mild winters, this fleece-lined sweatshirt can be worn as an outer layer too.
This mid-layer comes with a soft-rib on the hem and the end of the sleeves for intact fit while skiing. A zipper runs all the way up covering the neck along with a pull-tab protecting the chin from getting hurt. The vent zips for the underarms keep you ventilated during intense activities.
