I've been a fan of shells and layering for some time so I was pretty excited to see Descente come out with the Kensie Shell Jacket.
With Descente's Powder stretch fabric, and 20,000mm waterproofing, this shell was the perfect companion on a road trip to Colorado in May when the unpredictable weather delivered powder days followed by amazing spring skiing. I love love love how it moves with me when I move and keeps me dry no matter what kind of terrain I'm hitting.
The Kinsie Shell Jacket definitely kicks butt!
