This uninsulated hardshell provides the ultimate in weather protection and versatility for the ever-changing conditions in the mountains. From the harshest storms to warmer bluebird spring days. To keep them dry in wet conditions, this hardshell is fully waterproof, fully seam-taped, and all exposed zippers are waterproof. In cold conditions, kids can layer (or zip-in) the Element Insulator for maximum warmth. For warmer spring conditions, kids can leave the insulator at home and simply wear the highly breathable hardshell over a baselayer and open up the underarm vents.
