I’ve had a few lightweight layers over the years to bridge the gap between having a full on winter jacket such as the Montane prism or Rab alpha jackets and a baselayer. The thing is none have ever covered all bases and layered particularly well. I’ve tried all the classics such as Rab vapour rise lite, various microfleeces and the Arcteryx atom lt vest. All are great but, the switch jacket is perfect and replaces all of the above on its own and for layering. To top it off it’s also very lightweight if needed as a booster layer. I’m surprised I’ve not heard more about it. Size wise a large covers my 42.5 inch chest and slight beer gut fine. Sizing should t be an issue as the jacket fits close but, with loads of stretch. Arms are long for climbing. I personally plan to use it over a Rab meco hoodie baselayer and under a Rab strata if really cold weather. Otherwise I’d carry it in my rucksack to back up the strata in changeable winter conditions. I can’t see how you could improve this.
