When first laying eyes on the Keystone 3, you can't help but be impressed. It's understated, elegant and the build-quality is immediately apparent. The outer material is attractive and feels great, with a soft, matte texture to it, that somehow just looks high-end.
The fabric has 4-way stretch to keep you moving and comfortable out on the mountain, as well as 20k waterproofing and taped seams to ensure you won't get any melted snow seeping in through the cracks. We found that the Keystone 3 also provides great breathability, so you won't start to burn up on those balmy spring days. There are also underarm vents to quickly get rid of heat, as well as a two-way main zip for customisable airflow.
The Keystone 3 is an insulated jacket, filled with Primaloft which is breathable as well as one of the best materials for keeping you warm in unpredictable Alpine climates. We have no complaints when it comes to staying warm out in the snow - this jacket should serve you well no matter if you're cruising the pistes or heading out on an evening sleigh ride.
We also really liked the cut of the Keystone 3. It's flattering and feminine without being too figure-hugging or uncomfortably tight. The only thing to note is that it doesn't come down very low at the back, so if you're prone to sitting in snow, make good use of the snow skirt and opt for bib pants.
The sleeves are a good length and the cuffs are adjustable to keep the fit right even with bulky gloves, and the silky inner gaiters have thumb holes to keep them in place and snug against the wrist.
We like the little details you get with this jacket. From tiny silver detailing along some of the YKK Metalux zips, to the subtle Schoffel logo and faux fur panel on the lining, you can tell there was thought put into the design.
You're not short of storage here either, with useful pockets both inside and out. The hood is 2-way adjustable and removable for more versatility, as well as being lined with a soft faux fur, plus it also sports a faux fur trim.
We tested the blue version of this jacket, which looks understated and classic, but if you feel like standing out a little more, it also comes in a very unusual bright green.
There's no denying that this is a high-end piste jacket, perfect for ladies who don't mind splashing a bit of extra cash to take on the mountain and look totally Instagramable while doing it.
