When you need to move fast and light, the Alpinist Tech Jacket is a great midlayer that can double as a minimalist outer layer in dry conditions.

What I like
*Warm and light without a lot of bulk.
*Breathes well and dries very quickly.
*Even though the ATJ is best used as a midlayer, it has a lot of outer layer features, including drawstrings with cord locks at the waist, a zippered inner pocket, and a storm flap behind the main zipper.
*Areas with the potential for high friction, such as around the collar, chest pocket, and lower pockets, are reinforced with an abrasion resistant material.
*Flat seams add to comfort when layering and when wearing a backpack or other bag with shoulder straps.

Some caveats
*The lightweight polyester fleece fabric does not seem as durable as traditional softshell material.
*The main zipper is not a two-way zipper.
*The cuffs are elasticized but cannot be adjusted in any way.

Bottom line: the Alpinist Tech Jacket is my go-to midlayer when space and weight are at a premium (I often use it with a Super Mica waterproof shell). I don't think it will stand up that well to a lot of abuse or hard wear, but I have "traditional" soft and hard shells to use for the rough stuff. Four stars, keeping in mind how I use the ATJ.

----------
Addendum (September 2013)
If you're trying to decide between the ATJ and a Patagonia R1 jacket, there are currently two major differences between the two garments. First, the R1's material has a soft, shiny finish. This makes it easier to don additional layers but also means the fabric has a higher tendency to snag or "catch" on rough surfaces when it's your outermost layer.

It's an athletic cut and on the thin side. But it looks great on. I'm not husky but I workout. Think skinny runner and get a size bigger if you have muscles.

Perfect for Southern California weather. I live in San Diego and I would say this jacket is not too thick or too thin just the right blend. Very soft and breathable.

Fleece does not have headphone port in inner pocket as explained in description. Im not a climber; I wear this fleece in a urban setting so I like to listen to my music while walking around.

Have used this jacket all summer for backpacking and canoeing trips where temps fell below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I really like how light and warm the jacket is. It does. It crawl up when you move which allowed me to paddle and reach with getting drafts on my back. Packs down small enough to put in a backpack. Also is very light for the warmth it provides. The chest pocket is incontinent and inaccessible if wearing a backpack and is not large enough for an iPhone or larger accessories so I'd be fine if it was removed all together.

Pros
-warmth to wright ratio is excellent
-packs down small
-doesn't "ride" when you move
-looks good enough you could wear about anywhere
-durable

Cons
-chest pocket is in the way of backpack straps and is not large enough for an iPhone or larger phones
