Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Active insulation (proton, nano) vs Polartec (R3)

Merry Christmas to everyone!

I am torn between Nano Air and Proton LT to be used under a hard shell for snowshoeing/split.
Heard that both are good at keeping warm while providing excellent breathability.
Then I thought I have a warmest jacket, the Patagonia R3 high loft. And reviews are that it wicks moisture well.
So question for you experts: what would be the main difference/issue in using the R3 instead of Proton / Nano Air?
