I've read about concerns/issues with durability with this jacket. I'm looking to lighten my load from fleece midlayers and it doesn't get any lighter than this.

I would like to use it as a summer alpine/desert winter insulating layer for in camp and a light bring along to wear at the top while peak bagging, and possibly as added warmth under a soft shell to/from work on colder days. So given those requirements, will this ultralight hold up, or should I move up to the slightly heavier MontBell jackets?

It will be ok if you plan to use it around camp and under other layers. Its just not a heavy enough fabric to withstand rubbing on rocks and sharp branches and the likes
