I am looking for a soft-shell (alt. insulated mid-layer/shell like the Atom LT) to complement a hardshell jacket.

I live in a cold climate, -10 – -25 C° is not unusual, add some wind to that, it gets pretty chilly sometimes. I am going to use it for backcountry ski touring and nordic style touring, but would like to be able to use it for spring and autumn tours as well (askin to much?).

I am not sure if this model or the Gamma SL is to be preferred? As I understand this has the fleece liner and the LT does not.
If I were to use a thicker fleece (or down sweater) as a mid-layer in the SL, would it be as wind-resistant as the MX? Could you use the SL with a thicker mid-layer such as a thicket fleece or down sweater in really cold weather? A Gore-Tex Pro Shell would always accompany me on winter tours. As I understand the Gamma SL has a bit better breathing ability compared with this model, which I find important.

If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it!

Hi,
I am thinking of getting this jacket but I am not sure about the size. I am 148 pounds, around 5' 9" (175 cm). Not 100 % sure about chest size, but around 94-95 cm (about 37in). A stated in the size chart, that would be between an XS and S, but not sure when it comes to layering.

I would like to get one or perhaps two layers under the jacket. My main activities are backcountry skiing, nordic (touring) skiing and hiking in the summer and fall. So a year round jacket.

Thankful for any input!
