Gilet for Insulation

I'm after a gilet - mostly as an extra layer of insulation, so a bit of added warmth but breathable still are the main criteria. Also need it to be packable. All recommendations appreciated.

I was thinking of the Castelli Pro Light but am a bit confused as the Castelli website claims -
249g (hardly light?!)
3/5 insulation
5/5 breathability

but Wiggle / CRC claims -

81g (sounds more realistic?)
1/5 insulation
5/5 breathability

Which is right? One would presume Castelli but 250g sounds hefty for a vest with light in the name...
