Engineered for you.
It's your first time exploring the Dolomites, and you don't want to waste time down-climbing because of a little wind. With the Men's Salewa Agner Engineered DST Jacket you can keep exposure and wind chill to a minimum, or just wear it to limit scraping yourself up on that sugary limestone. The Durastretch construction doesn't just protect you from the elements, either, but is built to stretch with you for full mobility on the wall. The hood easily adjusts with a single hand, so you can keep three points of contact on the wall at all times, and the pockets are placed for easy access with your harness equipped. It packs down nice and tight into an integrated compression pouch, so when the sun pops out to scare away the wind you can tuck it away till later.

Softshell pieces are super nice in the alpine where weather changes on a dime, it's always windy and you are trying to move quickly. The Agner DST really takes this a step further with a stretchy functional design that's incredibly durable and won't let you down when grinding your way up that chimney or doing a long ridge traverse. It's a pretty trim fit w/longer arms and a pretty average torso length. It stay under the harness nicely and the pocket placements are great for your phone and route guides/maps. Breathability is pretty solid - I've used it a couple times now on trail runs and was impressed with how comfortable I stayed. It's not waterproof, but does a solid job - especially in temps where breathability is more important. If you are tired of messing around with layers when you are out in the mountains all day, I'd consider picking up the Agner DST. A tech T and this in variable conditions works pretty darn well.
