The Burton field jacket is a lot better than the second one going by waterproof and breathibility. I also would rather have a shell and change my laying based on the weather rather than have an insulated jacket that I would only wear in the coldest of days.
I rarely wear more than a base layer and shell but I'm hot natured. If it's below 20 or so, I'll wear a thin wool mid layer.
Everyone is different, just have to figure out what works best for you.
