Icebreaker Women's Crave Long Sleeve Hood
Super-breathable middle layer that works as a fleece OR a shirt.
I wore it at high altitude on a hot, sleeveless-shirt day that developed a strong snow-melt wind. It was so comfy, un-scratchy and un-fuggy even in the sun out of the wind, that I never took it off.
