As a fan of shells and layering, I was happy to take the Kensie Shell from Descente out for a second season in a row. This season the Kensie comes to us with some improved features which include smoother zipper function and different internal pocket placement to compliment the layering pieces that go with this shell. The zipper pulls are not only attractive but they are easy to use with gloves or mittens.
