/ Climbing Softshells?
Patagonia Simple Guide Hoody
Both pretty good for spring, summer, autumn climbing/approaches in the UK?
Good review of the VR lite alpine jacket here: http://terrybnd.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/rab-vapour-rise-lite-alpine-jacket.html
Try the Montane Alpine Stretch for something light that moves with you. Nevisport have just got them in. Very tempting if you like to layer up.
I recently purchsed a ME Astron which is somewhere in between (ie a bit stiffer/more rainproof) but still lightweight (only 400g). Would have been tempted by the Montane though if it had been available earlier this winter.
The Patagonia jacket is good, but better suited to winter/alpine stuff, I find it too heavy to use in the UK most of the year but I do tend to run hot.
