Topic - Slightly warmer than a Vapour Rise Lite?

AlanLittle - on 02 Jun 2013
Due to continuous pouring rain - May was the second wettest month ever recorded in Bavaria, apparently - my planned bank holiday weekend sport climbing in the Frankenjura turned into a bank holiday weekend hillwalking in pouring rain in the Bavarian Alps.

In the course of which I discovered that my Vapour Rise Lite jacket, although it's light enough to not overheat under a shell when I'm working hard uphill, is then not really warm enough when it's got good & moist in there and I'm not going uphill any more. I have an R2 fleece which I suspect would wick and handle moisture rather better under a shell, but would be far too hot for going uphill.

So, what's similar to a Vapour Rise Lite but just slightly warmer? How much warmer for example is the standard Vapour Rise?
