A women’s specific sportswear brand created by a three time Olympic medalist was destined to be one of our favorites. We love that Norwegian freestyle skier Kari Traa brings a lightheartedness to the traditionally drab world of baselayers. Kari started out knitting her own pieces between ski competitions and grew her hobby into the fastest growing sports brand in Europe. Now she offers everything from outerwear to baselayers, accessories and beyond. With fun prints and bright bold colors we love to see that functional pieces can also be fashionable. Her great wool leggings are perfect under your ski pants or with a tunic and boots. As a professional skier she also understands that functional base layers need to meet the needs of real skiers, like having capri length options that stay out of your boots and tops that are long enough to avoid any gaping.
