Bitihorn Alpha 60 Insulated Jacket
This lightweight insulation piece provides an especially high level of breathability. Its soft and quiet face fabric and good air circulation makes this suitable for a comfortable mid layer, yet wind resistance and water repellence also makes for a comfortable outer jacket. This is a good option if you are concerned about weight and breathability but still in need of protection and insulation. It has a soft, lightweight mesh liner treated with Polygiene antimicrobial, and Polartec Alpha 60 grams insulation.

My wife purchased this jacket. This is her review:
I purchased this jacket because I've been happy with my previous norrona products and I was looking for some insulation options for the winter time. I originally thought I would be using this as a layer for ski days, although I've found that I throw it on when I'm headed out for any light-moderate activity. The polartec alpha does not necessarily keep you warm if you're not moving much, but once you get your heart rate up, this puppy does the trick. It's not quite as warm as the arcteryx procline hybrid hoodie, but it breathes a little better. Runs a little larger than some brands, which makes it so that I can layer well underneath it. Overall happy to have another option in the mix for cold days.
