I'm planning to see the Russian Winters (Siberia). Is there a place/person who would rent me winter-ware (for temperatures ~ -30 C)? I'm looking for down jackets and shoes in particularly. Just wanted to avoid buying myself, for a one time thing. Thanks.

Baikal and Yakutsk (well, that's the plan).

(by the way, I was wondering if I could find someone to rent/borrow from in Bangalore)

You may contact Bangalore Mountaineering Club. They could be of some help to you...

Outwear is just part of winter gear, you need to get some good thermal innerwear too.

Try Stikage , Delhi.

But the rent could be more than the value; it might be better to dress up in layers and buy own gear.
