Backcountry tours require a lot of work. That is, if you're doing it right. All that work means you're probably breathing heavy and working up quite a sweat. Of course you need protection from the elements, but you also need protection from yourself. The North Face Alpine Project Hybrid Hooded Softshell Jacket allows water vapor to escape to keep you dry and comfortable so you stay warm without getting clammy. When the temperature really takes a dive, throw a shell over the Alpine project Hoodie and use it as an insulating mid-layer. It still allows water vapor to escape, but it also insulates well so you can forget about the med-evac.
