I have one of the quicksilver insulated jackets from a few years ago, and, it's far to warm. I've worn it on some of the crappiest days that Ruapehu had to offer with nothing more than a single base layer underneath. I had the powder skirt undone to try and vent some of the heat too. In spring - it's totally intolerable. If your riding in a place that has a typical temp of -10degC...you might be right, I'd steer clear otherwise
Quicksilver do make some fairly good stuff though, with reasonable tech so I'd suggest going for some thing with greater weather protection and less insulation. Use your base layers to keep you warm.
