/ Rab mountain guide vapour rise
It's not as heavily featured as the Rab(hood isn't adjustable, less pockets etc) but it does a very good job of blocking out the wind and wicking away sweat. It's also okay in light rain and layers well when required. As recomended by Andy Kirkpatrick and me!
I had the VR Guide and sold it as I found it too hot. I now use the VR Alpine Lite which is a really good piece of kit - I tend to feel the cold a bit more than I used to, but I find it a pretty decent bit of kit on most days, either with just a base layer if I'm likely to be on the move most of the time, or with a gilet of some sort underneath if I'm likely to have periods where I'm standing around.
