I bought this last week @ $106 and it was worth it. REI does a price adjustment within 14-days of purchase incase anyone else did the same as me and wants the price difference refunded. (URL to price adjustment keeps getting blocked, just search it.)

Main purchase reason was because of the stretch panels on the side for range of movement and ventilation for moderate level activities such as hiking and cycling around town.

This jacket has 60g PrimaLoft silver which in my opinion is quite warm; I have another 60g PrimaLoft gold jacket and it is is warm down to about 30F during the day, can go into lower temps depending on activity level. Obviously the stretch panels on this jacket will leak heat but I've been wearing this jacket daily in 40-50F weather and have actually had to unzip a few times to avoid overheating.

Stuffs into its own left-hand pocket is a great travel feature. Monkey thumbs and draw cord are nice features to have to keep the jacket close to your body. It has been totally windproof in my wearing, haven't tested the DWR finish in a downpour. But you can just apply whatever your favorite brand is if the house coating is meh, and of course the side panels are not waterproof.

I've also found this jacket has an "active" or "euro" fit. It fits closer to the body than I expected. Reminds me of some of my European motorcycle jackets rather than a boxy American cut. This is great for wearing it under a rain shell (which is probably by design), but it may be tough to wear a mid layer under it; I'd probably recommend to size up if you're on the cusp of the next size up and plan to wear this as your outer layer.
Yes, I think you need another jacket.
Arc'teryx version of this jacket, which I have, the Atom LT, is $260. Unless you want an overpriced fleece or windwall, Arc'teryx gear basically begins at $250.

For $70, this is an EXCELLENT value. No questions.

This is a lightweight synthetically-insulated jacket with a DWR water-resistant finish.

Casual use: suitable for 30-65 degree temps, light to moderate rain, windwall, lightweight.

Active use: 20-50 degree temps, light to moderate rain, windwall, lightweight - and BREATHABLE - which is what makes this jacket so great.

A down puffer is too warm for active wear, isn't breathable, and isn't suitable for rain. A rain shell may be truly waterproof, but it isn't nearly as warm or breathable (even if you layer up to make up for warmth).

This type of jacket is the perfect compromise. Not too hot, not too cold - suitable for rigorous athletic activity in colder wet temps - water-resistant, windwall, but breathable. Throw on a baselayer under this and it would be suitable sub 20 degrees. Wear a tee and it's good for hiking in rain in the 40s.

This jacket is a multi-purpose workhorse.
