The Cora Jacket is an example of how progressive Descente is in the ski clothing industry with its waterproof down coziness and technical features that satisfy the skier who demands performance that looks good and feels great. The interior tech and goggle pocket are complimented by two primary exterior pockets and a hidden sleeve pocket that hold all the things you need on a winter day, but the one small feature that packs a big punch for me is the grippy zipper pulls that make it for easy access while you're wearing your gloves or mittens.
The Cora Jacket is seen here with the Lani pant by Descente, which is made with waterproof stretch fabric, inside leg vents, and extra wide low rise waist.
Descente has outdone themselves with this attractive and technical combo.
Edit: I had a chance to ski in some uber windy wet snow conditions on Christmas Eve and am happy to report that this waterproof down did its job. I continue to be impressed!!
