When the cold is so intense that all the sweaters, coats, shawls and gloves, caps and socks seem totally inadequate, it is time to turn to thermal wear to keep warm. Winter is certainly harsh in the sub-Himalayan states in India. Large parts of these states remain frozen and cut off from the rest of the country for a few months of such extreme winter weather. Residents of these regions and the people, who have to visit these regions for some reason or the other, do need very elaborate protection against cold during these months. And the most effective among these is the thermal wear.
